Please note: This Q10 product has been further enhanced with Bioperine, the patented extract of the black pepper fruit. This has been added to increase the bioavailability of CoQ10.
Co Enzyme Q10, sometimes known as Q10 or CoQ10 is an essential vitamin like compound referred to as ubiquinone. Ubiquinone is produced naturally within the body and is required for the production of energy. Every cell in the body contains some portion of Q10 and without it, energy production wouldn't be possible. Q10 also functions as a lipid soluble antioxidant, protecting the body from excessive free radical damage.
Although we produce Q10 naturally, there are a number of circumstances which justify supplementation to restore levels. Aging is the primary reason, Q10 production drops naturally from around 30 years of age and falls sharply in over 50's. Ubiquinone frequently features in many "anti-aging" therapies as people wish to combat the age related production decline.
Other than aging, certain medications are thought to interfere with production and lead to lowered levels, including statin (cholesterol lowering) medications. Certain conditions of oxidative stress may increase Q10 needs due to its role as an antioxidant.
