100 mg by Solaray contains CoQsolTM. CoQSol provides 273% Greater Absorption of CoQ10.
Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals. CoQ10 is also called ubiquinone, a name that signifies its ubiquitous (widespread) distribution in the human body.
Healing of periodontal tissue (the gums of the mouth) may require increased energy production; therefore, researchers have explored the effects of coenzyme Q10 supplementation in people with periodontal disease, which has been linked to coenzyme Q10 deficiency. Research shows that people with gum disease given coenzyme Q10 achieve better results than those given placebo.
The role of coenzyme Q10 in energy formation also relates to how the body uses carbohydrates. Research shows that CoQ10 lowered blood sugar levels in a group of diabetics.
Virtually every cell of the human body contains coenzyme Q10. The mitochondria, the area of cells where energy is produced, contain the most coenzyme Q10. The heart and liver, because they contain the most mitochondria per cell, have the greatest amount of coenzyme Q10. Coenzyme Q10 helps people with congestive heart failure. People with congestive heart failure taking coenzyme Q10 should not stop taking it suddenly because sudden withdrawal may exacerbate the symptoms of congestive heart failure.
Also, due to its effect on heart muscle, researchers have studied coenzyme Q10 in people with heart arrhythmias. Research in this area reported improvement after approximately one month in people with premature ventricular beats (a form of arrhythmia) who also suffer from diabetes.
Angina patients taking 150 mg per day of coenzyme Q10 report a greater ability to exercise without problems. Coenzyme Q10 appears to increase the heart’s tolerance to a lack of oxygen. Research has shown that problems resulting from heart surgery occurred less in people given coenzyme Q10.
Mitochondrial function also appears to be impaired in people with Alzheimer’s disease. Due to coenzyme Q10’s effects on mitochondrial functioning, one group of researchers has given coenzyme Q10 (along with iron and vitamin
B6) to several people with Alzheimer’s disease and reported that the progression of the disease appeared to have been prevented for one and one-half to two years.
Coenzyme Q10 also modulates immunity. Research shows that women with a high risk of breast cancer recurrence show evidence of protection when given very high (390 mg per day) levels of coenzyme Q10.
Coenzyme Q10 regulates blood pressure by reducing resistance to blood flow. Supplementation with coenzyme Q10 for at least several months significantly reduces blood pressure in people with hypertension.
