CoQ10 (also known as ubiquinone) is found in the mitochondria of every cell and in high concentrations in heart tissue. It may help support cardiovascular health and energy production.
CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrient and therefore is best taken when combined with a small amount of fat. To overcome this, we've added oil to our CoQ10 emulsifiers, therefore you may notice a normal separation which does not affect potency.
CoQ10 and the CoQ10 cycle may play fundamental roles in the antioxidant and energy systems of the body. The ubiquinone form of CoQ10 is produced in the mitochondria, where it directly participates in energy production by accepting electrons in the electron transport chain. Through the action of an oxidoreductase enzyme, ubiquinone is rapidly converted to ubiquinol, the lipid-soluble form that supports antioxidant activity throughout the body.
Toxicity: CoQ10 is safe as a dietary supplement. Toxicity is unlikely up to a daily intake of 1200 mg/d, although typical dosages have been 100 to 200 mg/d. In preclinical studies, ubiquinol's No-Observed-Adverse-Effect Level is 300-600 mg/kg.
Enhancing Healthcare Team Outcomes: CoQ10 is a safe, popular dietary supplement that is continuously being studied as an adjunctive treatment for several medical conditions, including congestive heart failure, type-2 diabetes mellitus with hyperlipidemia, fibromyalgia, mitochondrial disorders, Peyronie disease, myalgia, depression, migraines, and polycystic ovary syndrome.
