Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance needed for the proper function of many organs in the body. Coenzyme Q10 has an antioxidant activity and also helps with:
- Energy production (ATP)
- Preventing heart disease
- Reducing inflammation
- Improving brain performance and memory
What is this Liposomal CoQ10?
CoQ10 is a complex organic compound your body needs to start certain reactions or processes within your body. CoQ10 is fat soluble which is why it has an enhanced bioavailability when produced in a liposomal carrier. CoQ10 is found in food but also created by your body where it’s stored in your mitochondria – what creates cellular energy (called ATP). It’s primary job it to help your cells and mitochondria create ATP. Natural levels of CoQ10 decline with aging and lower levels have been associated with a number of different diseases, such as heart failure, high blood pressure, gum disease, and Parkinson's disease.
What does "Liposomal" mean and why is it so useful?
A liposome is a tiny bubble made out of the same material as a cell membrane. In essence it's a minute oil bubble that forms an ideal "transporter" and protector of the supplements they carry. Liposomes have been demonstrated to protect the compounds they carry through the stomach into the intestines, where much higher concentrations are made available to the body.
