Support Your Heart Health and Regain Cellular Energy With Life Extension Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 With Enhanced Mitochondrial Support
Many people are now taking a CoQ10 supplement more than ever before. One reason for this increase is a heightened awareness that “statin” drugs people use to lower LDL and cholesterol naturally cause a depletion of CoQ10 levels in your blood, and possibly your tissues.
Your mitochondria are your cells’ energy producing powerhouses, and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential factor of healthy mitochondrial function. CoQ10 is required by your body to convert the energy from fats and sugars you eat into usable energy for your cells. As you age, your body’s ability to produce CoQ10 declines drastically. With a sufficient amount of CoQ10, your mitochondria can work most efficiently throughout your whole body. This includes the most densely populated area, your heart. CoQ10 is also known as a potent antioxidant, by helping protect proteins, and DNA of mitochondria from oxidative stress and supporting healthy mitochondrial function.
Unfortunately, most doctors don’t know that the aging process itself 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 nearly 40%,the natural process of aging reduces CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall by up to 72%. What is particularly troubling about that is the deficit which may be caused by the effects of the aging process and statin drug use combined can result in dangerous depletion of cellular vitality.
CoQ10 has a history of being difficult for your body to absorb. When it comes time for you to choose a CoQ10 supplement, the primary factor is how much of it actually makes it into your bloodstream. A recent scientific study has shown that in seriously ill patients, conventional ubiquinone CoQ10 was barely detected in their bloodstream, whereas ubiquinol showed a significant blood level increase and subsequent clinical health improvements.
Scientific studies have shown that ubiquinol absorbs up to 8 times more into your bloodstream than ubiquinone, and higher levels of ubiquinol also remain in the blood far longer than ubiquinone. In scientific sports 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. Life Extension offers the highly bioavailable ubiquinol form of CoQ10 in a patented delivery system with a superior absorption level.
Life Extension Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 also contains an ingredient called PrimaVie® shilajit. Research has shown that it doubles the levels of CoQ10 in your mitochondria.
Shilajit has been shown to help your body restore and sustain cellular energy. The latest scientific studies have revealed that when shilajit is combined with CoQ10, cellular energy gains substantially increase.
In a breakthrough preliminary study in mice, 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:
- Stabilizing CoQ10 in its superior ubiquinol form, thereby prolonging its action at the cellular level.
- Facilitating more efficient delivery of CoQ10 into the mitochondria, resulting in greater cellular energy output.
Analysis of scientific studies have shown that shilajit itself is rich in essential compounds that promote mitochondrial metabolism. Part of shilajit’s beneficial effects derive from its ability to help the mitochondria convert fats and sugars into adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, the main source of cellular energy.
Life Extension Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support™ combines the superior absorption of ubiquinol CoQ10 with shilajit to generate a powerful synergy that supports more youthful cellular energy production than CoQ10 alone.
