- Helps support heart function.†
- Important for individuals taking statin drugs to lower cholesterol.
- Provides 100 mg of CoQ10 to support CoQ10 levels in the body.†
Certain cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) are known to inhibit the body’s natural production of CoQ10, which is why supplementation is often recommended for statin users.1
Additionally, while the body can produce its own CoQ10, both this function and the ability to absorb the amounts found naturally in some foods appear to decrease with older age.
CoQ10 levels may also decrease under certain health conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and congestive heart failure. trunature CoQ10 may help support and replenish CoQ10
CoQ10 is a fat-soluble compound, found in most cells in the body, that plays an important role in energy metabolism pathways.
CoQ10 is located in a specific part of a cell (the mitochondria), which is known as "the powerhouse of a cell" due to the fact that energy production takes place there.
CoQ10 is needed to help convert food (carbohydrates, protein, fat) into cellular energy (ATP)† and keep our body functioning at its optimal level.2
Knowing the role CoQ10 plays in cellular energy production, it is no wonder that the highest concentrations of CoQ10 are where we need the most energy – the heart, liver and kidneys.†
CoQ10 exists in moderate amounts in meat, poultry and fish and in smaller amounts in nuts, fruits and vegetables.
Higher levels of CoQ10 can be found in organ meats like kidney, heart and liver, while lower levels can be found paired with vitamin E in the germ of whole grains.
