CoQ10 Energizes Your Cells
Research supports the use of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supplements to improve the long term health of millions of people who suffer from degenerative diseases associated with aging. That's good news for your heart, muscles, brain, liver, pancreas, kidneys, gums, skin, eyes, immune system and overall health.
CoQ10 is a fat soluble compound best known for its vital function in the production of energy inside cells. It is concentrated in the part of the cell that churns out energy, the mitochondria. CoQ10 also acts as a powerful antioxidant.
Your Heart and CoQ10 Cardiologist, congestive heart failure (CHF) researcher and CoQ10 expert, Peter H. Langsjoen, MD, FACC says: "The heart muscle uses more energy than any other organ in our bodies." Skeletal muscle, the brain, the liver and gum tissue also consume a lot of energy. These organs and tissues require maximum amounts of CoQ10 for the greatest possible energy production for the best health.
What causes CoQ10 deficiency? Age is a major factor in the development of CoQ10 deficiency. Moreover, elderly people who take statin drugs (used to treat high cholesterol levels) are at an even higher risk of the devastating effects of CoQ10 deficiency. Tissue concentration of CoQ10 drops dramatically with age. One study found:
- Heart muscle wall 72 percent decrease in CoQ10
- Skin (epidermis) 75 percent decrease
- Adrenal Gland 47 percent decrease
- Kidneys 35 percent decrease
- Liver 10 percent decrease
Should you supplement with CoQ10? After 24 years of treating patients with congestive heart failure, Dr. Langsjoen is convinced middle aged people should supplement CoQ10 as a preventative measure.
He says it is important to tell your doctor if you are taking CoQ10 because it has been found to enhance the effectiveness of some medications resulting in the need for lower doses. Dr. Langsjoen has seen patients with congestive heart failure who supplement with CoQ10 experience a "gradual lessening of the requirement for many cardiac medications that occurs with the improvement in heart muscle function." He also reports no known side effects or drug interactions among patients who supplement with CoQ10. By using supplemental CoQ10 preventively and therapeutically, a growing body of research shows that you can avoid the long term adverse effects of decreased cellular energy production and impaired antioxidant function.
ALTRUM Coenzyme Q10 (DEQ) provides 30 mg per capsule of CoQ10, a proven cell energizer to help strengthen the heart, support the immune system, keep gums healthy and give you renewed vitality and energy. *
ALTRUM CoQ10 is made from the best form of CoQ10 available. It’s the highest quality source derived from fermentation and consists only of the natural trans configuration, the same as produced by humans. The ALTRUM CoQ10 is a completely natural liposomic fat soluble delivery system clinically shown to increase CoQ10 levels up to four times and is three to four times better absorbed than chewable CoQ10 tablets.
Some therapeutic forms of CoQ10 advertise that theirs is better because they process the CoQ10 into micro beadlets making it watersolubleto get it into the bloodstream quickly. However, there is a cost to this type of processing: the CoQ10 is not retained by the body as effectively. This spikes the CoQ10 up in the blood for three to six hours, but then drops off quicker than the fat soluble Liposomic Q Sorb form of CoQ10 in ALTRUM.
|The Liposomic Q Sorb CoQ10 used in the ALTRUM CoQ10 is fat soluble. It is best for daily use because it acts like a “time release” CoQ10 and is delivered like food. Even though it takes longer to assimilate, it persists in the bloodstream for more than 24 hours. This insures there is always enough for the heart and other vital organs. *
