Douglas Labs  Citrus-Q10 60  60 Tabs
Coenzyme Q10 for Cardiovascular Support


DESCRIPTION Citrus-Q10™ 60, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, supplies naturally fermented coenzyme Q10 in a great tasting, natural citrus flavored chewable tablet. Citrus-Q10™ 60 contains no sugar, artificial colors or flavors and is suitable for vegetarians.

FUNCTIONS Coenzyme Q10 is an important rate-limiting nutrient that is a cofactor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, the biochemical pathway in cellular respiration from which adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and metabolic energy is derived. Since nearly all cellular activities are dependent upon energy, coenzyme Q10 is essential for the health of all human tissues and organs, especially the heart. † Given the strength of the science that has been emerging for the use of supplemental CoQ10, it is important to ensure that optimal CoQ10 levels are achieved in the blood following supplementation. Biochemically, it functions much like vitamin E in that it participates in certain antioxidant and free radical reactions. Numerous studies indicate coenzyme Q10 also plays an important role in the maintenance of the entire cardiovascular system. † Coenzyme Q10 is also important for the maintenance of blood vessels and heart muscle function. † In addition, statin drugs have been shown to impact coenzyme Q10 levels, therefore, individuals taking statin drugs may benefit from additional CoQ10 supplementation. And, as recent data indicate, it supports mitochondrial membrane proteins and protects DNA from oxidative stress. † Coenzyme Q- 10 is a large lipophilic nutrient that is best absorbed when a source of dietary fat is present such as lecithin.  

INDICATIONS Citrus-Q10 60 may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals whose coenzyme Q10 requirements are not met through biosynthesis of the molecule. 

SUGGESTED USE Adults take 1-4 tablets daily or as directed by your healthcare professional. Allow tablet to dissolve in mouth and swallow. Not a sublingual tablet.
