Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble‚ high molecular weight compound produced by the body for the basic functioning of cells. It is synthesized endogenously on a branch of the mevalonate pathway‚ which also produces cholesterol. CoQ10 plays a central role in cellular energy metabolism that produces adenosine triphosphate (ATP)‚ the energy currency for muscle contraction and other cellular processes. Organs with high energy demands‚ such as the heart and liver‚ have the highest concentrations of CoQ10.
CoQ10 is recognized for its significant role in the electron transport chain as well as being one of the body's most vital antioxidants. It is found in the mitochondria‚ the energy-producing center or “powerhouse” of the cell. In addition to being produced in the body‚ CoQ10 can also be obtained in small amounts through certain dietary sources‚ such as fish (salmon and tuna) and organ meats (heart‚ liver and kidney).
These amounts (internal and dietary)‚ however‚ may often be inadequate to meet the body’s demands. Additionally‚ age and various illnesses‚ as well as the use of various medical classes‚ increase the need for this valuable nutrient. Thus‚ as is the case with many vitamins and minerals‚ supplemental amounts of CoQ10 may be beneficial for ameliorating specific health conditions and helping to prevent or limit oxidative damage.
CoQ10 exists in both ubiquinone and ubiquinol forms‚ its names derived from the word “ubiquitous” because it is present everywhere in the human body. The number ten in "CoQ10" refers to its biochemical structure‚ which consists of ten isoprene units attached to a benzoquinone “head.”
In the mitochondrial electron transport system‚ CoQ10 undergoes continuous reversible oxidation and reduction. It is converted to ubiquinol (reduced form) when it accepts electrons and to ubiquinone (oxidized form) when it donates electrons. As an antioxidant‚ CoQ10 regulates membrane fluidity‚ recycles radical forms of vitamin C and E‚ and protects membrane phospholipids against peroxidation (the process whereby free radicals "steal" electrons from the lipids in cell membranes‚ which can result in cell damage).

from Northville, MI
Great product - CoQ10
I have been using Q-Avail Nano for a long time (recommended by my personal trainer and nutritionist). I like the Design for Health brand because I trust its quality and is well priced. I will definitely keep ordering Q-Avail Nano. Pureformulas.com is a great site because they carry all brands is tax-free and ships for free too! I wouldnt get my supplements from anywhere else.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
