Co-Enzyme Q10 is a substance all cells need to live. It is also called "ubiquinone," which is very fitting because Co-Q10 is literally ubiquitous (everywhere) in your body, as well as all living systems. It is one of the vital keys to the process that produces most of your cellular energy.
Carlson Co-Enzyme Q10 is prepared in soft gels to increase absorption. Studies show Co-Q10 is absorbed better in an oil than in dry form. Natural Vitamin E is added to protect freshness and potency.
Carlson make its CoQ10 in opaque easy-to-swallow soft gels protect against degradation by heat, light and air.
Take one soft gel daily.
Vitamin E: 1IU, CO-Q10: 100mg
HOW DOES CO-Q10 WORK?
Within each cell are components called mitochondria, where energy in
the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is produced. In order for
mitochondria to do their work, electrons must continually flow through
them, ultimately reaching oxygen molecules. Co-Q10 is a vital link in
this electron flow (see Figure 2). Without energy, the cell dies. With
insufficient amounts of Co-Q10, the electron flow slows down, and the
body is not properly oxygenated.
Co-Q10 also functions as an ANTIOXIDANT by helping to decrease free
radical activity. Free radicals are unstable molecules which can initiate
destructive chain reactions in the body. Co-Q10, along with beta-carotene,
vitamin C, vitamin E, and antioxidant enzymes helps stabilize free
radicals and prevents damage.
DOES TAKING CO-Q10 SUPPLEMENTS ACTUALLY HELP
INCREASE ITS CONTENT IN THE BODY?
When taking Co-Q10 supplements, studies show significant increases in
blood concentration. For instance, one study found that a single dose
of 100 mg increased plasma concentration from 1 mcg/ml to 3.8
mcg/ml. Furthermore, supplementing 100 mg daily for 2-8 months
resulted in a 20-80% increase of Co-Q10 concentration in the heart
In summary, Co-Q10 is found in all living organisms and is essential to
life because it is necessary for ATP production. While it is normally
obtained through the diet or manufactured by the body, certain people
have exhibited shortages of Co-Q10. Research has shown supplementation
can increase the body’s levels of Co-Q10.
