Life Extension Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support -- 50 mg - 30 Softgels

Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™. Enhanced Delivery System for Maximum Absorption. The mitochondria are the cells’ energy powerhouses and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential component of healthy mitochondrial function. CoQ10 is required to convert the energy from fats and sugars into usable cellular energy. Yet the body’s production of CoQ10 declines significantly with advancing age. With an ample amount of CoQ10 the mitochondria can work most efficiently throughout the entire body — including the most densely populated area the heart. CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant helping protect proteins LDL and DNA of mitochondria from oxidation and supporting mitochondrial function. More people are supplementing with CoQ10 than ever before. One reason is increased awareness that “statin” drugs used to lower LDL and cholesterol deplete CoQ10 levels in the blood and possibly the tissues. What most doctors don’t know however is that normal aging may result in more of a reduction in CoQ10 than taking statins. For example while statin drugs have been shown to reduce plasma CoQ10 by 40% the aging process reduces CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall by 72%. What is particularly frightening is the deficit caused by the dual effects of aging and statin drug use that can result in severe depletion of cellular vitality. When CoQ10 is orally ingested only a certain percentage is actually absorbed into the bloodstream. Findings in human subjects indicate that higher doses of CoQ10 provide significantly better effects than the doses supplement users typically take. Since CoQ10 is a comparatively expensive nutrient an alternative to taking higher doses is to increase the amount of CoQ10 that is absorbed. Life Extension® offers the highly bioavailable ubiquinol form of CoQ10 in a patented delivery system with a superior absorption level. CoQ10 is notoriously difficult to absorb. When it comes to choosing a CoQ10 supplement the primary factor is how many swallowed milligrams actually make it into your bloodstream. A recent study showed that in seriously ill patients conventional ubiquinone CoQ10 was hardly detectable in the blood whereas ubiquinol resulted in significant blood level increases and subsequent clinical improvements. Scientific studies show that ubiquinol absorbs up to 8 times greater than ubiquinone and higher levels of ubiquinol remain in the blood far longer than ubiquinone. In studies measuring exercise-induced fatigue ubiquinol was 90% more effective than ubiquinone. In middle-aged mice ubiquinol was shown to be 40% more effective in slowing measurements of aging compared to ubiquinone. This latest formulation contains an organic compound called PrimaVie® shilajit that research shows doubles levels of CoQ10 in the mitochondria. Shilajit has been shown to help restore and sustain cellular energy. The latest studies reveal that when shilajit is combined with CoQ10 cellular energy gains substantially increase. In a breakthrough preliminary study the combination of CoQ10 and shilajit produced a 56% increase in cellular energy production in the brain — 40% better than CoQ10 alone. In muscle there was a 144% increase or 27% better than CoQ10 alone.  . Researchers have found that shilajit works to boost CoQ10’s beneficial effects by:. 1.Stabilizing CoQ10 in its superior ubiquinol form thereby prolonging its action at the cellular level. 2.Facilitating more efficient delivery of CoQ10 into the mitochondria resulting in greater cellular energy output. Scientific analysis shows that shilajit itself is rich in essential compounds that promote mitochondrial metabolism. Part of shilajit’s beneficial effects derives from its ability to help the mitochondria convert fats and sugars into adenosine triphosphate or ATP — the body’s main source of energy. Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ combines super absorbable ubiquinol CoQ10 with shilajit to generate a powerful synergy that supports more youthful cellular energy production than CoQ10 alone.

Very great quality
 March 31, 2013
"This is very impressive, it uses high quality ingredients and it does give me energy...kinda expensive but at least you are paying for good quality. I think next time when I an afford this version of it, I may buy the 100mg better. More potent."

easy to take
 October 18, 2012
"Small softgels that are very easy to take especially because they have no fishy taste or smell, and no after-taste. I have tried other Ubiquinol products but even the non-smelly ones have repeated on me and that's when the fishy flavor appears. I hate fish and all sea food so I was really happy to finally find Life Extension Ubiquinol, that does not have that horrible flavor."
