Take this to heart: CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that may support healthy heart function.*. What is CoQ10? Formally known as coenzyme Q10 CoQ10 is a fat-soluble compound found in every cell of the body. Cells’ mitochondria (the powerhouses) use CoQ10 to produce energy. That’s why in large hard-working organs such as the heart you’ll find the highest concentrations of CoQ10. . Interestingly enough CoQ10 also functions as a powerful antioxidant.* Antioxidants help protect cells from free radicals which are harmful compounds generated during normal body processes. Breathing and digesting can create free radicals as well as exposure to environmental stimuli such as UV sunlight and cigarette smoke. By attacking healthy cells and damaging their membranes and DNA free radicals compromise normal cell function. . The body does produce CoQ10 on its own but levels decline with age. A steady decrease typically begins after age 30. Other factors including genetics and cholesterol-lowering statins can result in a CoQ10 deficiency if proper care is not taken. .

"I usually trust Vitacost products, but won't be using this CoQ10 any longer. I have used another brand in the past and thought that Vitacost's brand would be just as good but I was wrong. These capsules are powder. The one that has worked for me is liquid.The test is to make sure that CoQ10 is absorbable by cutting open the capsule and placing the contents on top of a glass of warm water, come back in 20 minutes and see if the CoQ10 has dispersed in the water. If it's still sitting on top of the water, then it's a fail. Honestly, I kept taking it but it hasn't given me any indication that it's actually working, so I have stopped and will be getting the other brand."
