Co-Q-10 Plus

SKU: 1528F
Supportive Function: A potent antioxidant, co-enzyme Q-10 is one of the electron carriers in the energyproducing mitochondria. Its many effects include support of cardiac function.

When is Co-Enzyme Q-10 helpful? Heart disease, periodontal disease, antioxidant properties, increasing blood flow and oxygen delivery to tissues, brain function, hypertension, mitral valve prolapse, angina, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, mitochondrial function, exercise performance and post surgical healing.
Clinical Applications Research: Co-Enzyme Q-10: a vitamin-like nutrient that is vital to the production of energy. As one of the electron carriers in the electron transport system, it helps cells utilize oxygen. If you have ever wondered how we get energy from food, or why we have to breathe oxygen, it is because the body strips food of electrons and transports them to an electron acceptor, which is oxygen. Co-Q-10 facilitates this process, providing one of the “spark plugs” for the creation of cellular energy. Without Co-Q-10, we would not have enough energy to fuel the physiological reactions we need to survive (Folkers K & Wolaniuk A. Drugs Exp Clin Res. 1985; 11(8): 539-45). Dr. Folkers notes that Co-Q-10 levels falling to 75% may cause illness, whereas falling to 25% may cause death (Folkers, ibid). Co-enzyme Q-10 concentration in the mitochondria (which are sometimes called the “powerhouses” of the cell) is not believed to be saturated, which is one of the reasons researchers think that supplementation is having beneficial effects (Clin Investig 1993; 71(8 Suppl): S66-70). Numerous therapeutic effects of Co-enzyme Q-10 have been reported, most notably in areas where oxygen transport is critical, for instance heart disease, aging and periodontal disease. Since an adequate supply of oxygen is necessary for tissue repair and immune function, many applications have been reported in these areas. Additionally, Co-enzyme Q-10 has therapeutic potential because of its antioxidant properties (fights damaging free radicals). Co-enzyme Q-10 has a wide variety of functions and applications in the body.
Contraindications: High doses of Co-enzyme Q-10 may interfere with the effectiveness of anticoagulant drugs such as coumadin. In one study, Swedish researches have observed that patients taking Co-enzyme Q-10 and Coumadin at the same time had their bleeding time changed, and the Coumadin was less effective.
