- High strength Q10 with added vitamin B1;
- Supports health heart function and energy production;
- Supports normal functioning of the nervous system.
One of its main functions is to help generate energy in your cells. It’s involved in making adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is involved in energy transfer within cells. Its other role is to serve as an antioxidant and protect cells from oxidative damage which can interfere with regular cell functions and cause many health conditions such as those listed below;
Male sperm is susceptible to the effects of oxidative damage, which may result in reduced sperm count, poor sperm quality and infertility.
Several studies have concluded that supplementing with CoQ10 may improve sperm quality, activity and concentration by increasing antioxidant protection.
Oxidative stress can affect muscle function, and thus, exercise performance and abnormal mitochondrial function can reduce muscle energy, making it hard for muscles to contract efficiently and sustain exercise.
CoQ10 can help exercise performance by decreasing oxidative stress in the cells and improving mitochondrial functions.
In fact, one study investigated the effects of CoQ10 on physical activity. Those supplementing with 1,200 mg of CoQ10 per day for 60 days showed decreased oxidative stress.
Supplementing with CoQ10 can help increase power during exercise and reduce fatigue, both of which can improve exercise performance.
Heart failure is often a consequence of other heart conditions, such as coronary artery disease or high blood pressure. Heart failure occurs when these problems affect the heart to the point that it is unable to regularly contract, relax or pump blood through the body.
In a study of 420 people with heart failure, treatment with CoQ10 for two years improved their symptoms and reduced their risk of dying from heart problems.
Another study treated 641 people with CoQ10 or a placebo for a year. At the end of the study, those in the CoQ10 group had been hospitalized less frequently for worsening heart failure and had fewer serious complications.
Abnormal mitochondrial function can lead to an increased calcium uptake by the cells, the excessive production of free radicals and decreased antioxidant protection. This can result in low energy in the brain cells and even migraines. CoQ10 deficiency has been observed in people suffering from migraines.
Since CoQ10 lives mainly in the mitochondria of the cells, it has been shown to improve mitochondrial function and help decrease the inflammation that may occur during migraines.
One study showed that 1,550 people with low CoQ10 levels experienced fewer and less severe headaches after treatment with CoQ10.
Mitochondria are the main energy generators of brain cells. Mitochondrial function tends to decrease with age. Total mitochondrial dysfunction can lead to the death of brain cells and diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The brain is very susceptible to oxidative damage due to its high fatty acid content and its high demand for oxygen.
This oxidative damage enhances the production of harmful compounds that could affect memory, cognition and physical functions.
CoQ10 may reduce these harmful compounds, possibly slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
Of all your organs, your lungs have the most contact with oxygen. This makes them very susceptible to oxidative damage. Increased oxidative damage in the lungs and poor antioxidant protection, including low levels of CoQ10, can result in lung diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It has been shown that people suffering from these conditions present lower levels of CoQ10.
One study demonstrated that supplementing with CoQ10 reduced inflammation in individuals who had asthma, as well as their need for steroid medications to treat it whilst another study showed improvements in exercise performance in those suffering from COPD. This was observed through better tissue oxygenation and heart rate after supplementing with CoQ10.
