The data from years of validated research clearly supports the bioenergetic and antioxidant properties of Coenzyme Q10, commonly known as CoQ10, and research continues to increase as potential benefits of this dynamic antioxidant are demonstrated.* More recently, this beneficial compound has been shown to have an epigenetic effect, impacting the expression of hundreds of genes including those involved in cell signaling and metabolism, as well as the expression of pro-inflammatory proteins.*
CoQ10's ability to alter and slow down the oxidation rate of cells and support a healthy inflammatory response demonstrates the importance of maintaining adequate levels of this nutrient.*
CoQ10 supports healthy function of the circulatory system, lungs and respiratory system, the brain and nervous system, the reproductive system, as well as the health of the eyes and the gums.*
CoQ10 is a critical antioxidant for the function of mitochondria, the energy-generating units of all the cells in the body.* Muscle cells, including skeletal muscle and the cardiomyocytes of the heart, have the highest amounts of mitochondria.
