How It Works
Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in the body and plays an
essential role in the production of energy in all cells. As such it
is important for the health of virtually all human tissues and
The heart is one of the most active tissues in the body, and
requires an adequate supply of CoQ10. CoQ10 assists in
maintaining heart health, in particular heart muscle function.
The body?s ability to synthesise CoQ10 declines with age and
with exercise. CoQ10 inhibits the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol.
Cholesterol is very susceptible to free radical damage, which
leads to the formation of a toxic derivative called oxidised LDL-
cholesterol. It is currently understood that LDL-cholesterol may
be harmful to the body after it has become oxidised.
