Energy is the currency the body uses to carry out all metabolic processes and to function optimally. Energy is especially required during exercise and in endurance training when the athletes not only need instant energy but also a sufficient supply of oxygen to maintain a rigorous regimen. Coenzyme Q10 is the spark that produces energy is the body.
Coenzyme Q exists in every cell in the body. It functions as a messenger in the units called mitochondria, which are the powerhouses of the cell, where the oxidation of the foods eaten takes place and energy is generated as a result. This process is usually called respiration. Even though the body can synthesize CoQ10, it can be deficient in CoQ10 in cases of increased tissue needs, such as during high intensity exercise regimens. If respiration is limited, the body does not produce sufficient energy. Therefore, the blood supply to various tissues and organs is impaired. Nutritional supplementation with CoQ10 can replenish it under conditions of extreme duress, such as in endurance training.
Because CoQ10 produces energy in combination with respiration, supplementation with dietary CoQ10 ensures that muscles and other critical tissues and organs receive ample amount of oxygen via blood. Since the blood also carries nutrients in its stream, delivery of oxygen also provides appropriate nutrition to muscles and other organs critical for the bodily metabolism and survival.
In addition to its critical role in energy production "on demand," CoQ10 is one of the more potent natural antioxidant found in nature. As such, it protects proteins, membranes and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA, the molecules that make up the genetic material) from the ravages of free radicals.
The importance of CoQ10 can hardly be overemphasized. In its role as the agent that produces oxygen, CoQ10 is extremely important for heart health. In fact, deficiency of CoQ10 has been shown to be a causative factor in a variety of illnesses.
Ultimate Nutrition's 100% Premium Coenzyme Q10 is designed and manufactured for athletes who have high intensity exercise regimen. To supply the muscle and other tissues with the right amount of oxygen and nutrients and to produce energy when it is needed, CoQ10 is the supplemental nutrient of choice.
