Info: 60 Softgels
This natural supplement provides the reduced form of Coenzyme Q10, which scientific studies have shown to be a highly bioavailable and active antioxidant form of CoQ10, suspended in a base of natural MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) to improve its solubility and further enhance its absorption in the intestinal tract, thereby providing superior overall biological value.
Coenzyme Q10 is present in almost all cells, where it is necessary for mitochondrial energy production. The body's highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in the heart, where constant chemical energy availability is imperative. In addition to its benefits for cardiac function through energy production, CoQ10 also functions as a powerful fat soluble antioxidant, providing protection against free radical attack for vascular structures, as well as for other tissues, including the brain and neurons.
Although healthy bodies are able to produce the more biologically inert form of CoQ10 called ubiquinone (which is oxidized) and readily convert it to this active form (ubiquinol) on their own, that capability diminishes with age and with the use of certain medications.
Each softgel contains:
Ubiquinol: 100 mg (Kaneka QH, a Reduced Form of CoQ10)
Non-medicinal ingredients: Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT), softgel capsule (gelatin, glycerin, water, carob), and Beeswax.
