Citrus-Q10 by Douglas Laboratories supplies naturally fermented coenzyme Q10 in a great-tasting, natural citrus-flavored chewable tablet. Citrus-Q10 contains no sugar, artificial colors or flavors, and is suitable for vegetarians.
Coenzyme Q10 is an important rate-limiting nutrient that is a cofactor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, the biochemical pathway in cellular respiration from which adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and metabolic energy is derived.
Since nearly all cellular activities are dependent upon energy, coenzyme Q10 is essential for the health of all human tissues and organs, especially the heart.
Given the strength of the science that has been emerging for the use of supplemental CoQ10, it is important to ensure that optimal CoQ10 levels are achieved in the blood following supplementation. Biochemically, it functions much like vitamin E in that it participates in certain antioxidant and free radical reactions.
Numerous studies indicate coenzyme Q10 also plays an important role in the maintenance of the entire cardiovascular system. Supplementation with coenzyme Q10 in patients has shown to be useful for the maintenance of already healthy blood pressure.
Coenzyme Q10 is also important for the maintenance of blood vessels and heart muscle function. In addition, people taking statin drugs can develop deficiencies in coenzyme Q10 and may require supplementation.
Citrus-Q10 may be a useful dietary adjunct for individuals whose coenzyme Q10 requirements are not met through biosynthesis of the molecule.
