The Energy Enzyme
Co-enzyme Q10 is a vitamin like substance that is also known as ubiquinone due to its presence in virtually all cells of the human body. It is essential for cellular energy-production pathways because it is needed to generate ATP, which is the energy Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã¢â‚¬Å“currencyÃ¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â of all cells.
Co-enzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant, protecting cells from the damaging actions of free radicals that are produced as waste products during energy metabolism. Not only does it have antioxidant activity itself, it also recharges other antioxidants to keep them active. Supplementation with Co-enzyme Q10 has been shown to have benefits for athletes.
Good for the Heart
Co-enzyme Q10 supports cardiovascular function and has been shown to alleviate chest pain, dyspnea and palpitations, reduce blood pressure, and restore normal cardiac and endothelial function. Co-enzyme Q10 is used by doctors along with standard medication for the treatment of congestive heart failure and is an approved drug in Japan. Statin therapy for high cholesterol is also known to severely lower CoQ10 levels. Since CoQ10 is best absorbed with fats, AORÃ¢â‚¬Å¡Ã¢â‚¬Å¾s formula uses a lipid-based delivery system to ensure maximum absorption.
