Here’s why you need COQ10.
But…. did you know that CoQ10 is also considered a powerful anti-aging nutrient.
What Does CoQ10 Do?
- Improves cellular energy
- Acts as an antioxidant
- Boosts free radical-scavenging abilities
How does CoQ10 Work?
Our body converts Coenzyme
Q10 to ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is the reduced version of coenzyme Q10. They’re actually the same molecule, but when CoQ10 is reduced it takes on two electrons, which turns it into what we call ubiquinol.
In your body, this conversion occurs thousands of times every second inside the “engine” of each cell. This is how energy is produced.
When you have low amounts of CoQ10 you will very often have low energy and feel fatigued.
By the time we hit 40, the amount has fallen so significantly that there is no practical diet conceivable to fill this critical nutrient void.
The healthcare community has touted ubiquinol as essential for good health. Many experts now believe that absorbing a sufficient amount of ubiquinol is a key link to how well we age and maintain our physical stamina. When our body’s supply of ubiquinol is lower, we tend to slow down, have less energy, and our heart and cardiovascular system are less well protected.
What about Statins?
Did you know that Statins, used to reduce your production of cholesterol, lower your bodies natural production of CoQ10?
That is why supplementing with CoQ10 is essential to restore natural levels and to counter the effects of statin drugs.
Nordic Naturals has combined concentrated omega-3 fish oil and Coenzyme Q10 in their Pro Omega Formula. The Pro Omega CoQ10 offers the benefits of EPA and DHA from fish oil with the antioxidant CoQ10. Think of it as the two most important heart support nutrients in one high quality product.
