Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like compound also called ubiquinone. It is an essential component of cells and is necessary for mitochondrial energy production. Years of research has shown that CoQ10 supports healthy cardiovascular and immune system functions in addition to its vital role in energy production.*

What is CoQ10 and what is it good for?
CoQ10 (abbreviated for coenzyme Q10) is a vitamin-like compound also known as ubiquinone. Ubiquinone combines two terms that describe this substance well – a quinone is a type of coenzyme and ubiquitous indicates it exists everywhere in the human body, which it does. CoQ10 plays an important role in your body’s energy production and is an essential component of the mitochondria, where it helps to metabolize fats and carbohydrates and maintain cell membrane flexibility. CoQ10 is also involved in the production of several key enzymes that are used to create ATP, which is burned by your body for energy, and in the energy transfer between mitochondria and cells. Without CoQ10, you would not be alive or able to function.
CoQ10 is also an effective antioxidant that may beneficially affect the aging process. As we age, our body’s production of CoQ10 declines by as much as 80%. Because it is so important to energy production, and therefore life, researchers believe that this decline may be a factor in the effects of aging on the human body.
The highest levels of CoQ10 are found in tissues in the body that work the hardest, like the heart, the liver, etc. Initial studies into CoQ10 found that persons with cardiac insufficiencies had very low levels of CoQ10, and supplementation increased CoQ10 levels. So CoQ10 is not only an effective antioxidant, but it supports cardiovascular health as well.
Which of your CoQ10 products do not contain soy?
Because CoQ10 is a fat-soluble substance, many of our CoQ10 supplements include additional ingredients to facilitate absorption and utilization, including Lecithin, Vitamin E, Selenium and Hawthorne Berry.
We currently carry two potencies that do not contain any soy-based ingredients – 10mg and 30mg. The 10mg is available in a 100 and 200 cap size, and our 30mg is available in a 30, 60, 120 and 240 cap size.
