GNC Coenzyme Q10 promotes strong and healthy cardiovascular system. It supports energy metabolism in muscles to help improve athletic performance.
WebMD describes Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) as “a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods, but levels are particularly high in organ meats such as heart, liver, and kidney, as well as beef, soy oil, sardines, mackerel, and peanuts.
Coenzymes help enzymes work to digest food and perform other body processes, and they help protect the heart and skeletal muscles.”
Maintain Healthy CoQ10 Levels
As we age, the ability to absorb and synthesize Coenzyme Q10 diminishes and the amount of CoQ10 retained in tissues decreases. CoQ10 may be depleted by other factors, such as overall nutritional status and inadequate levels of the B vitamins, vitamin C, and selenium. Excessive exercise, illness or extreme weather may also lower CoQ10 levels in tissue.
