Coenzyme Q10

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

Coenzyme Q10 -- or “CoQ10” -- is a compound made by your body and stored in the mitochondria, the energy center of your cells. Our CoQ10 is manufactured by a fermentation process using common yeast.

CoQ10 is also found in many of the natural foods we eat. You can find CoQ10 in many types of organ and muscle meats and fatty fish, as well as in vegetarian-friendly foods like lentils, spinach, broccoli, and strawberries.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

One of the primary functions of CoQ10 is to assist in the production of cellular energy. It is involved in making adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an organic compound involved in the transfer of energy within cells. In addition to energy production, CoQ10 also supports cell health and growth.

As a powerful antioxidant, CoQ10’s other critical role is to protect cells from oxidative damage.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS?

Even with a healthy, balanced diet, many adults develop a CoQ10 deficiency -- a condition associated with many chronic diseases. CoQ10 helps maintain a healthy metabolism and guards the body from disease-causing bacteria and viruses.
