CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone, is important for your body’s daily functions that it is used by every cell in your body. For instance, CoQ10 is required for your cells to produce energy, and is an integral part of helping cells take fat and other substances and convert them into usable energy.
CoQ10 can also help protect your body from free radical damage. Free radicals are oxygen atoms deficient in electrons that become highly reactive. This in turn causes potential damage to your tissues and DNA. It is because of its powerful antioxidant protection that CoQ10 is often recommended for a wide variety of heart-related conditions, such as heart attack, high blood pressure and congestive heart failure, which require extra protection from free radical damage.
CoQ10 has actually been the subject of thousands of research studies, and in addition to the new finding above that CoQ10 may help reduce the risk of fatty liver in people with obesity. As you age, CoQ10 levels in the body decrease, CoQ10 levels are further depleted by the use of statin medications. The addition of BioPerine enhances absorption and bioavailability by up to 30%1.
