Olympian Labs CoQ10
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is a micronutrient essential to all human life. It is a naturally occurring nutrient that works as a co-factor in the body's electron transport system where all of the bodys energy is derived. CoQ10 regulates the flow of oxygen moving in and out of the mitochondria, which are the cells power plants. The bodys cellular power plants cant function without CoQ10.
Declines in CoQ10 levels occur with advancing age and appear to be correlated with deterioration of the immune system. Supplementation with CoQ10 could help to boost energy levels, strengthen and protect the heart and blood vessels, enhance the immune system and protect against free radical damage.
Like all muscles, the heart needs adequate energy to contract, and CoQ10 facilitates the production of that energy. In those with coronary heart disease, supplementation may reduce the frequency of angina episodes and increases the amount of physical exercise that a person can perform before developing angina pain. Tissues that need the largest amounts of CoQ10, like the heart, are those that require the most energy.
Research has also shown that an insufficient amount of CoQ10 is a contributing factor in some cases of obesity. A deficiency can contribute to lower energy levels and a slower metabolism. CoQ10 may improve blood Sugar Glucose balance and help manage high blood pressure in people with diabetes. Studies found that 100 mg of CoQ10 twice daily improved long-term blood Sugar Glucose control.
As an added benefit, Olympian Labs CoQ10 is made with extra virgin olive oil. Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) - a healthy dietary fat which may help lower the risk of heart disease by improving related risk factors. Studies have suggested that extra virgin olive oil may lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, and may benefit insulin levels and blood Sugar Glucose control as well.
Additionally, CoQ10 is an antioxidant, which means it protects cells from damaging free radicals. This not only benefits your immune system to help fight infections, but also supports skin repair and may stimulate collagen production.
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is frequently recommended by doctors for heart health maintenance.
