Blackmores Co Q10 has been specially designed to enhance energy production. Blackmores uses oil-based Coenzyme Q10 from a natural source to ensure optimal absorption of this important nutrient. Contains ubidecarenone 50mg. Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in the body and plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells. As such it is important for the health of virtually all human tissues and organs. The body’s ability to synthesize CoQ10 declines with age.
The heart is one of the most active tissues in the body, and requires an adequate supply of CoQ10. CoQ10 assists in maintaining heart health, in particular heart muscle function. Low levels of CoQ10 have been found to be a contributing factor in many primary cardiovascular health problems. Research at the Baker Medical Institute in Melbourne has shown that aged heart muscle cells fed CoQ10 performed as well as younger cardiac cells.
CoQ10 inhibits the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol and may help to reduce the risk of heart disease. Cholesterol is very susceptible to free radical damage, which leads to the formation of a toxic derivative called oxidized LDL-cholesterol. It is currently understood that LDL-cholesterol is harmful to the body after it has become oxidized.
