CoQ10

Acts as an antioxidant.  *  Helps support heart function.  *  Important for individuals taking statin drugs to lower cholesterol.  *  Helps support and replenish CoQ10 levels in diabetes, cancer, and congestive heart failure sufferers.

Coenzyme Q₁₀, also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone, coenzyme Q, and abbreviated at times to CoQ₁₀, CoQ, or Q₁₀ is a coenzyme that is ubiquitous in the bodies of most animals.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) plays a vital role in supporting cellular energy production and has antioxidant properties. It has been studied for the role it plays in helping support heart function. CoQ10 may be important for people taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs because statin drugs can reduce CoQ10 levels in the body.†  trunatureCoQ10 100 mg is now naturally orange, made with no added colors.

Importance of CoQ10

Certain cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) are known to inhibit the body’s natural production of CoQ10, which is why supplementation is often recommended for statin users.1

Additionally, while the body can produce its own CoQ10, both this function and the ability to absorb the amounts found naturally in some foods appear to decrease with older age.

CoQ10 levels may also decrease under certain health conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and congestive heart failure. trunature CoQ10 may help support and replenish CoQ10 levels.

CoQ10 and Energy

CoQ10 is a fat-soluble compound, found in most cells in the body, that plays an important role in energy metabolism pathways.

CoQ10 is located in a specific part of a cell (the mitochondria), which is known as “the powerhouse of a cell” due to the fact that energy production takes place there.

CoQ10 is needed to help convert food (carbohydrates, protein, fat) into cellular energy (ATP) and keep our body functioning at its optimal level.2

Knowing the role CoQ10 plays in cellular energy production, it is no wonder that the highest concentrations of CoQ10 are where we need the most energy – the heart, liver and kidneys.

Foods that Contain CoQ10

CoQ10 exists in moderate amounts in meat, poultry and fish and in smaller amounts in nuts, fruits and vegetables.

Higher levels of CoQ10 can be found in organ meats like kidney, heart and liver, while lower levels can be found paired with vitamin E in the germ of whole grains.
