The body uses energy to perform all metabolic processes and to help carry out your daily functions. Energy is especially required during exercise and endurance training when athletes need not only energy but also a sufficient supply of oxygen to maintain a rigorous regimen. CoenzymeQ10 is the spark that produces energy in the body.
Coenzyme Q exists in every cell in the body. It functions as a messenger in the units called mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell, where the oxidation of foods takes place and energy is generated. This process is usually called respiration. Even though the body can synthesize CoQ10, it can be deficient in CoQ10 in cases of increased tissue needs, such as during high intensity exercise regimens. If respiration is limited, the body does not produce sufficient energy. As a result, the blood supply to various tissues and organs is impaired. Nutritional supplementation with CoQ10 can replenish blood supply under conditions of extreme duress, such as endurance training.
Because CoQ10 produces energy in combination with respiration, supplementation with dietary CoQ10 ensures that muscles and other critical tissues and organs receive an ample amount of oxygen via blood. Since the blood also carries nutrients in its stream, delivery of oxygen also provides appropriate nutrition to muscles and other organs critical for bodily metabolism and survival.
In addition to its critical role in energy production "on demand, " CoQ10 is one of the more potent antioxidants found in nature. It protects proteins, membranes, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA, the molecules that make up the genetic material) from the ravages of free radicals.
The importance of CoQ10 can hardly be overemphasized. As the agent that produces oxygen, CoQ10 is extremely important for heart health.
Ultimate Nutrition's 100% Premium CoenzymeQ10 is designed and manufactured for athletes who have high intensity exercise regimens. CoQ10 is the supplemental nutrient of choice to supply the muscles and other tissues with the right amount of oxygen and nutrients and to produce energy when it is needed.
