CoQ10 is a naturally occurring antioxidant in the body used to produce energy for cell growth and maintenance by synthesizing adenosine triphosphate, also called ATP. ATP is synthesized in the mitochondria of a cell through a biochemical process called the electron transport chain. During this process, CoQ10, also known as Coenzyme Q10, works in tandem with various other enzymes to produce cellular energy and protect the body against extraneous electrons. In order to maintain similar energy production, CoQ10 is constantly recycled and eventually begins to decline after the age of thirty five. Supplementing with CoQ10 reinforces any loss that occurs in the natural aging process, subsequently providing individuals with healthier, energized cells within the entire body. It prolongs cell life and benefits the cardiovascular system, contributes to brain health, as well as strengthening the mitochondria within the cells.
As an antioxidant, CoQ10 is extremely valuable and shown to help with cardiovascular diseases & disorders. The heart requires a significant amount of energy which makes CoQ10 supplementation extremely beneficial since it promotes cellular energy production and offers such a wide range of support for the heart.
Beyond overall heart health CoQ10 helps with a variety of other age related concerns such as certain cancers, periodontal disease, heart arrhythmias, and elevated cholesterol levels. While statin drugs are sometimes prescribed for high cholesterol, they do have side effects, such as muscle fatigue. CoQ10 has been shown to combat those side effects and improve those conditions. Cancer patients have been found to have diminished levels of CoQ10 in their system. Supplementing with CoQ 10 could help replenish those levels and boost energy where it is needed.
In order to be properly introduced in the system, it is important that it be dissolved and transported with a lipid carrier. Dr. Salerno’s CoQ10 Factor is formulated with natural vitamin E, which facilitates increased absorption and optimal stability. The highly concentrated formula can then rapidly and efficiently supplement the body’s natural loss.
Coenzyme Q10 is used by every cell for energy production. As we age, our levels decline and this is especially true with regards to age related diseases. This also includes unhealthy lifestyles, oxidative stress, poor diet and the natural aging process.This is why it is so critical for overall health. In addition, for those taking statin drugs (cholesterol lowering medication), it is advised to take CoQ10 along with it, as this medication depletes the body of it, causing statin induced myalgia. This helps to combat side effects of the medication and aid in restoring energy to all the cells in the body.*
In order to function at optimal levels, your cardiovascular system requires a tremendous amount of energy. Without adequate levels of CoQ10, the mitochondria can suffer, thus impacting energy levels.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is one of the most intensively studied cardio-protective nutrients, which can also increase overall energy and act as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals.*
Because standard CoQ10 can be poorly absorbed, a number of technologies have been developed to improve its bioavailability. Unfortunately, while these products may dramatically increase CoQ10 absorption in some people, they have little or no effect in others.
CoQ10 Factor is unique in that it is sustained release over 24 hours. CoQ10 Factor contains MicroActive® CoQ10, the only form of CoQ10 shown in human clinical studies to have universal enhanced absorption across all subjects.*
- Doubles CoQ10 levels from baseline in 3 weeks*
- Delivers sustained release over 24 hours*
- Is 3x better absorbed than regular CoQ10*
- Is 2x better absorbed than solubilized (“enhanced bioavailability”) CoQ10 softgels*
- Dr Salerno’s CoQ10 Factor:
- Supports cellular energy*
