Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) 100mg provides a high strength COQ10 supplement derived using 100% fermentation processed from natural food sources only.
Fermentation of CoQ10 results in a pure "trans" form of Q10 which is the form which naturally occurs in the body and is therefor more easily recognised and processed internally. My Beautiful Body CoQ10 is suspended in sunflower oil for more efficient absorption and delivery into your body.
CoQ10 can also be produced synthetically via a complex chemical process that results in a combination of CoQ10 molecules in both “cis” and “trans” configurations. Unlike trans CoQ10, the cis form does not occur naturally in the body.
Experts are currently unsure how the body handles this form of CoQ10 and whether it has the same protective capability as natural coq10. Although the safety of all-trans CoQ10 has been studied and verified, safety/toxicity studies have not been performed with all-cis or cis-trans CoQ10. In addition, the potential effects of impurities such as coenzyme Q9 typically found in synthetically manufactured CoQ10 are unknown at this time.
Although manufacture of natural CoQ10 is a difficult and more costly process compared to synthetic processes, safety and clinical efficacy of CoQ10 cannot be guaranteed without 100% fermentation. For that reason My Beautiful Body CoQ10 is 100% naturally fermented.
is a vitamin like substance which plays a central role in the body's energy supply process, acting alongside enzymes (thus the name coenzyme Q10) to convert sugars and fat into energy. Coenzyme Q10 is also has an important role as an antioxidant within the body. Coenzyme quinones occur in several chemical forms, with coenzyme Q10 being the only form found in human tissues.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential cofactor of enzymes involved in the production of energy. Coenzyme Q10 is held in mitochondria, structures found within cells with the responsibility for the generation of energy (in the form of a molecule called ATP). Tissues with high-energy needs (e.g. heart, liver, skeletal muscles) contain more mitochondria within their cells.
Healthy Cardiovascular and Immune System Support
Coenzyme Q10 is also important as a major fat-soluble antioxidant, offering protection to the cell membranes from the damaging effects of free radicals, in a complementary manner to vitamin E. Coenzyme Q10 may promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function (as cells involved in immune response have a high energy dependence).
Ubiquinol or Ubiquinone?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is also referred to as ubiquinol or ubiquinone, names of different forms of CoQ10 found within the body.
There is a common myth about CoQ10 that ubiquinol is more effective than ubiquinone. This has been due to a wave of companies who produced the ubiquinol form and then falsely marketed it as a superior version.
The truth is that regardless of what form of CoQ10 you take as a supplement, the body is able to convert the consumed form to the other form as needed. In other words, if you take a reduced CoQ10 supplement (ubiquinol), the body can convert the reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) to the oxidised CoQ10 (ubiquinone) and vice versa. This conversion takes place to maintain a state of equilibrium between reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) and oxidised CoQ10 (ubiquinone).
Unquestionably, both forms—ubiquinone and ubiquinol—are effective and essential to important pathways in the body, and in states of need, either form can be reduced or oxidised to form the other.
Under normal circumstances, the body is able to maintain adequate levels of coenzyme Q10. However, coenzyme Q10 levels decrease with age, and are depleted by intense physical exercise or illness. Coenzyme Q10 levels are also depleted in patients prescribed cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.
