CoQ10 stands for Coenzyme Q10, a natural antioxidant synthesized by our bodies. This fat-soluble, vitamin-like nutrient is essential to several bodily functions and is required by every single cell in the body. The body’s ability to produce and metabolize CoQ10 has been reported to decrease with age. CoQ10 deficiency may be caused by insufficient dietary intake of CoQ10, impairment in CoQ10 biosynthesis, as well as excessive utilization of CoQ10 by the body to protect against compromised genes. The result is less cellular energy (ATP production). CoQ10 deficiencies have been implicated in many conditions such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular problems, and neurodegenerative diseases.
AOR’s CoQ10 supplies an effective dose of a naturally fermented form of CoenzymeQ10, the benefits of which include slowing the effects of aging, protecting cognitive health, and improving heart health. The vegan softgel delivery format provides maximum absorbability.
