Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) 300mg provides a high strength COQ10 supplement derived using 100% fermentation processed from natural food sources only.
Fermentation of CoQ10 results in a pure “trans” form of Q10 which is the form which naturally occurs in the body and is therefor more easily recognised and processed internally.
CoQ10 can also be produced synthetically via a complex chemical process that results in a combination of CoQ10 molecules in both “cis” and “trans” configurations. Unlike trans CoQ10, the cis form does not occur naturally in the body.
Experts are currently unsure how the body handles this form of CoQ10 and whether it has the same protective capability as natural coq10. Although the safety of all-trans CoQ10 has been studied and verified, safety/toxicity studies have not been performed with all-cis or cis-trans CoQ10. In addition, the potential effects of impurities such as coenzyme Q9 typically found in synthetically manufactured CoQ10 are unknown at this time.
Although manufacture of natural CoQ10 is a difficult and more costly process compared to synthetic processes, safety and clinical efficacy of CoQ10 cannot be guaranteed without 100% fermentation. For that reason Supplement Tree CoQ10 is 100% naturally fermented.
Co-Q10 is a vitamin like substance which plays a central role in the body’s energy supply process, acting alongside enzymes (thus the name coenzyme Q10) to convert sugars and fat into energy. Coenzyme Q10 is also has an important role as an antioxidant within the body. Coenzyme quinones occur in several chemical forms, with coenzyme Q10 being the only form found in human tissues.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential cofactor of enzymes involved in the production of energy. Coenzyme Q10 is held in mitochondria, structures found within cells with the responsibility for the generation of energy (in the form of a molecule called ATP). Tissues with high-energy needs (e.g. heart, liver, skeletal muscles) contain more mitochondria within their cells.
Healthy Cardiovascular and Immune System Support
Coenzyme Q10 is also important as a major fat-soluble antioxidant, offering protection to the cell membranes from the damaging effects of free radicals, in a complementary manner to vitamin E. Coenzyme Q10 may promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function (as cells involved in immune response have a high energy dependence).
