NO LONGER AVAILABLE - COQ10 PLUS (100 mg) (60 softgels)
NO LONGER AVAILABLE
100 mg CoEnzyme Q10 with Vitamin E, Vitamin A, and Rice Bran Oil
Supports Production of Cellular Energy (ATP)
Boosts Energy Levels, Supports Cardiovascular Health, Immunity, and Gum Health
We recommend Ubiquinol as a replacement for COQ10 PLUS.
COQ10 PLUS provides coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) for effective support for energy (ATP) production in the body. CoQ10 thereby increases energy levels and reduces fatigue, supports cardiovascular health, boosts immunity, and improves gum health. Also because of its role in cellular energy production, coenzyme Q10 supports optimal metabolic function, and thus exerts beneficial effects throughout the body.
COQ10 PLUS contains 100 mg of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in a softgel capsule. It also contains 100 IU of Vitamin E as low-alpha mixed tocopherols, 2,334 IU of Vitamin A from beta-carotene, and rice bran oil for enhanced absorption. The combination of ingredients in COQ10 PLUS has been shown to provide about 50% higher long-term coenzyme Q10 blood levels than powdered form coenzyme Q10.
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS & APPLICATIONS
The primary function of coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone) in the body is to allow the mitochondria to convert food metabolites from the digestive process into energy for the cell. This enzyme is normally produced by the body and is found in all cells. It is most abundant in the cells of the heart, liver, and the immune system. CoQ10 is an important fat-soluble antioxidant that can protect and regenerate Vitamin E in cell membranes. CoQ10 also has been shown to stimulate the body's immune system.
Studies have shown that when essential levels of CoQ10 are allowed to decline, the body's vital organs and systems cannot meet their energy requirements. The inevitable results are major ill health and disease states. Advancing age causes the body gradually to lose its innate ability to produce CoQ10. Improper nutrition and/or maldigestion also can reduce the body's ability to generate the needed amounts of CoQ10.
Dosages in the range of 50–300 mg have been reported effective in cases of heart disease, fatigue, and immune deficiency. Numerous studies have indicated that supplemental CoQ10 in the amounts of 30–100 mg can be helpful when gums need to be strengthened. No toxicity has been noted at levels many times greater than these amounts. In a recent independent study, the combination of ingredients in COQ10 PLUS provided about 50% higher long-term coenzyme Q10 blood levels than the powdered form of coenzyme Q10.
Because it is fat soluble, CoQ10 is mobile in cell membranes where it plays a unique role in the electron transport chain that produces energy (ATP) in the body. In this process, CoQ10 functions as an electron carrier from enzyme complex I and enzyme complex II to complex III, a function no other molecule can perform. Thus, CoQ10 acts in every cell of the body to synthesize energy. Sufficient production of ATP is necessary to support all metabolic processes (and sustain life). ATP provides the energy required not only for proper metabolic functions, but also for optimal health and healing.
