Optimal CoQ10 by Seeking Health provides CoQ10 as hydroQsorb®, a unique form of CoQ10 that is quickly absorbed and utilized by the body. CoQ10, also known as coenzyme Q10 is an important building block of cardiovascular health. It functions primarily to provide cells with ATP, the primary unit of energy needed to function. Energy as ATP is required to maintain healthy cells and tissues throughout the body. Many of the body's vital processes depend on adequate levels of coenzyme Q10 in order to deliver ATP to cells.
CoQ10 may also work as an antioxidant in mitochondria and lipid membranes. This ubiquitous coenzyme helps to maintain overall cellular health and assists in the regenerating process of other important antioxidants such as vitamin E. Under normal conditions, CoQ10 levels are more concentrated in the heart muscle. However, tissue levels of CoQ10 typically decline with age. As levels decline, the ability of cells to maintain adequate energy production and mitigate cell damage may also decrease. When low tissue CoQ10 levels occur, supplementation can help restore normal levels.
