Features

Coenzyme Q10 (also called CoQ10 or ubiquinone) is a natural substance vital to human cellular energy production. CoQ10 is also involved in maintaining normal heart function, and it is an antioxidant, scavenging free radicals throughout the body.

CoQ10 is required by every cell in our body and is the key to chemical reactions that produce cellular energy. Just as an automobile engine with poor spark plugs chokes, sputters and dies, without enough CoQ10 (our cellular spark plug) our health can break down, resulting in all kinds of degenerative diseases. Studies show that CoQ10 may be effective for congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, some forms of cancer, and gum disease.
