INGREDIENT BENEFITS CoQ-10 Depletion The body’s ability to produce and metabolize CoQ-10 has been reported to decrease with age. CoQ-10 deficiency may be caused by insufficient dietary intake of CoQ-10, impairment in CoQ-10 production, drug-induced CoQ10 depletion, gene mutations and oxidative stress. HMG-CoA reductase is an enzyme required for the synthesis of cholesterol and CoQ-10. Cholesterol lowering medications inhibit this enzyme in order to reduce cholesterol synthesis, but may also simultaneously deplete CoQ-10 status. Cardiovascular Health CoQ-10 is important for all energy-dependent processes, and is especially helpful in strengthening contraction of the heart muscle. CoQ-10 is also important for protection against free radical damage to the arterial vessels. Blood Sugar Balance The electron transport chain, a biochemical pathway in which CoQ-10 plays a major role, significantly impacts carbohydrate metabolism. CoQ-10 has been shown to support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
