Coenzyme Q10 Softgels
Coenzyme Q10 softgels, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain pure co-enzyme Q10 (ubiquinone). Co- enzyme Q10 is solubilized in a base of rice bran oil and vitamin E to enhance absorption of co-enzyme Q10.
Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is an important rate-limiting cofactor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, the biochemical pathway in cellular respiration from which adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy used by the body, is derived. Since cellular activities are dependent upon energy, co-enzyme Q10 is crucial for the efficient functioning of nearly every cell.
In addition to its well-established function as a component of the mitochondrial electron transport chain, co- enzyme Q10 has in recent years acquired increasing attention regarding its antioxidant properties. Co- Enzyme Q10 occurs in all cellular membranes as well as in blood serum and in serum lipoproteins.
Coenzyme Q10 softgels may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support their body’s own production of co-enzyme Q10.
Each softgel contains:
- Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) – 100mg
- Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) – 100 I.U.
