Product Information

Heart Health™ Advanced Co-Q10 (Cardiovascular & Immune Support)

Poor cardiovascular health is one of the leading causes of death and illness in the United States, accounting for one out of every two deaths in both men and women. Poor cardiovascular health is becoming a worldwide epidemic. An unhealthy diet of processed, high-calorie, high-fat foods, pollution, smoking and sedentary lifestyles all contribute to poor heart health. Not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, exercising regularly and taking the right supplements can all contribute to promoting cardiovascular health. Clinical studies have shown that supplementing with Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) may be beneficial in promoting cardiovascular health. CoQ10 is a coenzyme, meaning that it is essential to activating enzymes. Enzymes are produced by the body and are necessary for survival and healthy living. CoQ10 is known as a ubiquinone and is found in every cell in the body. Coenzyme Q10 is important for cellular energy production, promoting the strength of the heart muscle and providing antioxidant protection to the cardiovascular system.*

All cellular functions depend upon the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a molecule with three high-energy phosphate bonds, which exist in all of our cells. It is the primary energy source for many metabolic processes. Coenzyme Q10 is essential to the ATP production process, and the heart has a high metabolic demand, which is why normal levels of CoQ10 are associated with good cardiovascular health. As part of the energy production process, CoQ10 exists in the inner mitochondrial membrane as part of the electron transport chain. CoQ10 transports the electrons and protons through the membranes to make the energy production process possible. The lysosomal membranes that separate digestive enzymes from the rest of the cell contain relatively high concentrations of Coenzyme Q10. Recent research suggests that Coenzyme Q10 plays an important role in the transport of protons across lysosomal membranes to maintain the optimal pH for cellular recycling. Within a cell, it serves as a carrier of electrons in the electron transport chain, neutralizes free radicals and helps maintain the integrity of the mitochondrial membrane.

Throughout the aging process, the body’s ability to synthesize Coenzyme Q10 begins to decline. Sometimes this is due to stress or infections, but the main challenge is a poor diet. Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 is a blend of CoQSol-CF™ and vitamin E, designed to promote overall cardiovascular health. CoQSol-CF is a unique, patent-pending formula of CoQ10, food grade d-limonene (which serves as a non-polar, organic solvent) and tocopherol (vitamin E). This combination creates a liquid, crystal-free solution of CoQ10 that provides enhanced bioavailability. By improving dissolution, absorption is enhanced. Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 helps maintain normal blood pressure, helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, provides antioxidant protection for the cardiovascular system, helps maintain heart muscle strength, helps maintain cognitive health and promotes cellular energy production.*

Many factors contribute to poor cardiovascular health, including poor diet and inactivity. However, when combining proper diet, regular exercise and appropriate supplementation, cardiovascular health can be maintained. Studies have shown that supplementing your diet with Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can contribute to improved cardiovascular health.  

To enhance your cardiovascular health, add Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 to your supplement routine. With a blend of CoQSol-CF, a unique, patent-pending formula of CoQ10, food grade d-limonene (which ensures greater absorption), and vitamin E this combination creates a liquid, crystal-free solution of CoQ10 that provides enhanced bioavailability. Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 helps maintain normal blood pressure, healthy cholesterol levels, provides antioxidant protection and promotes cellular energy production.

    Ingredients

    Coenzyme Q10 (CoQSol-CF™) 102 mg
    Coenzyme Q10 belongs to a family of substances called ubiquinones and is a water-insoluble, wax-like substance that is part of the respiratory chain. Since it is a coenzyme, it is necessary to support the action of an enzyme, and it has a similar structure to vitamin K. CoQ10 is found in each of the 50-75 trillion cells throughout the body, except for mature red blood cells. It has a multitude of health benefits at the cellular level, in the cardiovascular system, and with the body’s metabolism. It serves to revitalize and energize the body’s cells and immune system and contributes to increases in stamina and endurance by fueling the body’s energy production (ATP) cycle. It is beneficial to the cardiovascular system because it helps to protect the heart, maintain normal blood pressure, and promotes mental alertness and brain activity.*

    The mechanism of action of supplemental coenzyme Q10 has yet to be clarified and is a matter of much speculation. However, much is known about the biochemistry of CoQ10. Coenzyme Q10 is a two-part compound that is composed of a long, fat-soluble isoprenoid tail that anchors the molecule in the inner membrane of the mitochondria; and quinine that is capable of accepting and transferring electrons through a portion of the respiratory chain. The “Q” stands for quinine and the “10” stands for the number of isoprenoid units in the tail portion of the molecule. It is synthesized in the cells and is involved in electron transport and energy production in mitochondria. In the cellular system, it functions to generate energy from oxygen, in the form of ATP, for bodily processes. It serves as a free radical scavenger and an antioxidant. The antioxidant activity in the mitochondria and cell membranes promote the stability and health of lipid membranes. Combining CoQ10 with vitamin E generates a synergistic antioxidant effect on lipoprotein and spares the vitamin E.*

    Coenzyme Q10 can be found in spinach, broccoli, nuts, soy, organ and muscle meats, and fish. In 1977, a Japanese company succeeded in synthesizing coenzyme Q10, which made the nutrient available to the world. CoQ10 is absorbed in the small intestine and a steady-state concentration can be attained in the body in five to six weeks. In the body, it is found in the highest concentration in the cells of the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas. The liver produces small amounts of CoQ10, and then it is distributed to the rest of the body.

    Vitamin E (d-alpha-Tocopherol) 200 IU
    The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amounts of vitamin E (about two thirds of the RDA in ¼ cup), and there are trace amounts in corn oil and soybean oil. Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is available in a natural or synthetic form. In most cases, the natural and synthetic forms are identical except the natural form of vitamin E is better absorbed and retained in the body. The natural form of alpha-tocopherol is known as "d-alpha tocopherol." The synthetic "dl-" form is the most common form found in dietary supplements. For those individuals watching their dietary fat consumption, which is relatively common in the world of dieting, vitamin E intake is likely to be low, due to a reduced intake of foods with high fat content.*
    The main health benefit of supplemental vitamin E comes from its immune-boosting antioxidant activity. It also promotes the normal healing of wounds and is known to promote cardiovascular health. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidants in the body. Vitamin E protects cell membranes from free radical damage.*

    FAQ

    What type of vitamin E is in Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10?
    The natural form of vitamin E, d-Alpha-Tocopherol, is in Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10. It is far superior to synthetic in terms of retention in the body and absorption.

    If my body makes CoQ10, why should I take a supplement?
    When you are young, your body can produce adequate levels of CoQ10. However, as you get older, your cells do not produce enough of the energy they need to function well. Supplementation of CoQ10 has been shown to raise blood levels of this co-enzyme when the body’s ability to synthesize it begins to decrease.

    What is the recommended serving size of Coenzyme Q10?
    Coenzyme Q10 has been used in maintenance servings of 30-60 mg, but can go up to 100 mg or more.

    Is there a certain time I should take CoQ10?
    Coenzyme Q10 should be taken with a meal containing some fat. However, taking it in combination with soy or vegetable oil substantially enhances it absorption.

    Is it okay to take a CoQ10 supplement while pregnant or nursing?
    No. The safety of coenzyme Q10 has not been established in pregnancy and lactation.

    Is it safe to take CoQ10?
    Yes, it is safe to take CoQ10; it does not produce any toxic side effects when ingested by humans or animals. It is listed in the 42nd edition of the Physicians Desk Reference as replacement therapy for a nutrient, and no adverse reactions are listed.
