CoQsol CF 100 mg - 120 Softgels

 

  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Enhanced Absorption with D-Limonene
  • Supports Healthy Heart Function

Coenzyme Q10 (also called ubiquinone) is present in almost all cells, where it is necessary for mitochondrial energy production.  The body's highest concentrations of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) are found in the heart, where constant chemical energy availability is imperative.  In addition to its benefits for cardiac function through energy production, CoQ10 also functions as a powerful fat soluble antioxidant, providing protection against free radical attack for vascular structures, as well as for other tissues. 

CoQsol-CF is a unique, patent-pending formula of CoQ10, food grade d-limonene (which serves to solubilize CoQ10), and tocopherol (vitamin E).  This combination creates a liquid, crystal-free solution of CoQ10 that provides enhanced bioavailability.  By improving dissolution, absorption is enhanced.


Coenzyme Q10 is beneficial for heart health in many ways. It assists in maintaining the normal oxidative state of LDL cholesterol, helps assure circulatory health, and supports optimal functioning of the heart muscle. CoQ10 may also help support the health of vessel walls.  CoQ10 is a vital participant in the chain of metabolic chemical reactions that generate energy within cells. It is found in every cell of the body (the name ubiquinone stems from its ubiquity), but is present in higher concentrations in organs with higher energy requirements such as the kidneys, liver, and heart.

The National Cancer Institute stated the body can use CoQ10 to protect cells from damage that might lead to cancer. Animal studies have shown it helps the immune system work better and helps the body resist infections and certain cancers, according to the institute, which also points out studies in breast cancer patients have resulted in patients improving with CoQ10 treatment. 

Researchers at the University of Western Australia in Perth found that CoQ10 improved blood pressure when used by people with type 2 diabetes. The study, published in the November 2002 issue of the "European Journal of Clinical Nutrition" tested 74 subjects and showed it also helped control blood glucose levels.

Evidence suggests that there is often a CoQ10 deficiency in heart failures and CoQ10 plasma concentrations have also been used as a predictor of mortality in heart failure. Oxidation of the circulating LDL is thought to play a key role in causing heart attacks and strokes and ubiquinol (a form of Coenzyme Q10) in human LDL provides protection against the oxidation process, resulting in a healthy heart for you.
