CoQ10 stands for Coenzyme Q10, a natural antioxidant synthesized by our bodies. This fat-soluble, vitamin-like nutrient is essential to several bodily functions, and is required by every single cell in the body. The body’s ability to produce and metabolize CoQ10 has been reported to decrease with age. CoQ10 deficiency may be caused by insufficient dietary intake of CoQ10, impairment in CoQ10 biosynthesis, as well as excessive utilization of CoQ10 by the body to protect against compromised genes. The result is less cellular energy (ATP production). CoQ10 deficiencies have been implicated in many conditions such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular problems, and neurodegenerative diseases. As such the benefits of CoQ 10 supplementation include: slowing the effects of aging, protecting cognitive health, improving metabolic functions, and improving heart health.
As part of the Eco Series, CoQ10 supplies a naturally fermented form of CoQ10, delivered in a carrageenan-free Vegan Softgel, offering optimal absorption and suitability for various dietary preferences or restrictions, while promoting environmental sustainability.
Keeping with our committment to sustainability, all of AOR’s Eco Series product labels and printed materials have been printed on stone paper. Stone Paper is made from reclaimed limestone (calcium carbonate), recycled concrete, and a small amount of HDPE (high density polyethylene). These components are combined in an environmentally friendly manufacturing process under pressure and heat, using no water, dyes, or bleaches. One tonne of stone paper saves 20 trees and 16,000 gallons of water, resulting in a carbon footprint rudction of 67% when compared to pulp paper.
