CoQ10 is an essential nutrient and antioxidant needed for the electron transport chain. The electron transport chain and Kreb’s cycle is our bodies biochemical process to make energy (in the form of the molecule ATP). CoQ10 increases energy production (gives us more energy) and allows our cells to function better.
It is needed for proper heart function, and low levels are linked to those with diabetes mellitus and in patients requiring dialysis, type 2 diabetes, and liver diseases.
Cholesterol medications block Co-Q-10 function.
Ubiquinol is the converted form of C0-enzyme Q-10. One 50 mg capsule of Ubiquinol per day is 5x more potent than the two 30mg capsules of CoQ10 (Co10 by Thorne) that I used to recommend.
Thorne has since come out with Q-Best, a form of Co-Q-10 that is absorbed 10x as much as the powder form.
Because of it’s role in so many metabolic pathways, CoQ10 has been one of the top 5 products that I have sold.
For the month of May, COQ10 supplements are 20% off.
