Blackmores CoQ10 has been specially designed to enhance energy production. CoQ10 is a coenzyme that occurs naturally in every cell in the body where it is involved with the production of cellular energy. CoQ10 levels decline with exercise and as we age. Blackmores CoQ10 is an oil-based formula for optimal absorption and assists in maintaining heart health, in particular heart muscle function. CoQ10 reduces oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol (so-called 'bad' cholesterol). Features Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in the body and plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells. As such it is important for the health of virtually all human tissues and organs. The body's ability to synthesise CoQ10 declines with age. The heart is one of the most active tissues in the body, and requires an adequate supply of CoQ10. CoQ10 assists in maintaining heart health, in particular heart muscle function. Research at the Baker Medical Institute in Melbourne has shown that aged heart muscle cells fed CoQ10 performed as well as younger cardiac cells. CoQ10 inhibits the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol and may help to reduce the risk of heart disease. Cholesterol is very susceptible to free radical damage, which leads to the formation of a toxic derivative called oxidized LDL-cholesterol. It is currently understood that LDL-cholesterol is harmful to the body after it has become oxidized.
