What is CoQ-10?
CoQ-10 by Solgar is a supplement made from Coenzyme Q10, a nutrient that has been described as a substance with similar properties to those of a vitamin, reason for which it is treated as a 'pseudovitamin'. It is also known with the name of Ubiquinone, and it is found in all living beings. It is a crucial nutrient to nourish cells ans obtain energy, and according to the latest research, CoQ10 is essential in cellular metabolism, as it helps to convert food into energy.
What are the properties of CoQ-10?
CoQ-10 is one of the most important fat-soluble antioxidants with great cardioprotective properties, as well as boosting the immune system. It has the ability to reach the mitochondria, an organelle located in the cell and where the energy is created. This is where the oxygen transported by the blood is consumed and the ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is generated. ATP provides cells with 95% of the total energy that they need to perform their vital functions.
The mitochondria requires Coenzyme Q10, whose role is to serve as a source of ignition, for the initiation of mitochondrial functions. Without enough Coenzyme Q10, the cells do not receive optimum energy nutrition, and this can end up damaging the function of vital organs, such as the heart, which requires a large amount of Coenzyme Q10 to generate constant energy to pump the blood. This may be the case for people who use drugs to lower cholesterol levels that contain statins, a substance that tends to reduce the levels of this coenzyme in our body.
Coenzyme Q10 is a vital nutrient to maintain a good cardiovascular health, as it has the ability to strengthen it and reduce the effort it has to make to circulate blood. It also helps to strengthen the immune system, by protecting our cells from the attack of free radicals at the same time as it activates the function of macrophages.
Who is this CoQ-10 supplement for?
- Anyone being treated with statins.
- Anyone seeking to increase their health condition by providing antioxidant protection and improving cardiovascular function, as well as helping to increase their energy status.
