is a vitamin-like compound also called ubiquinone. It is an essential component
of cells and is necessary for mitochondrial energy production. Years of
research has shown that CoQ10 supports healthy cardiovascular and immune system
functions in addition to its vital role in energy production.*
Q-10 (CoQ-10) is a natural compound that is being used clinically to medically
treat heart disease in Japan, Italy and China. CoQ-10 is also used as a natural
health product in the USA, Canada and some other countries.
In the human
body, CoQ-10 is found concentrated in the heart and liver tissue, where it
functions in the respiratory electron transport system in mitochondria.
Consequently, its toxicity to the human body is extremely low. It has ten
isoprene units forming a side chain attached to benzoquinone ring and all the
ten double bonds in the side chain should be ''trans'' form to be
physiologically effective in medicinal applications.
Two manufacturing processes are
currently being used in Japan to commercially produce CoQ-10:
In the case
of chemical synthesis, relatively higher rates of ''cis''-isomers in the side
chain (pharmacologically less active form) and Coenzyme Q-9 which has only 9
isoprene units in the side chain are formed as byproducts which must be
eliminated from the final product through a purification process. On the other
hand, the natural fermentation process yields the ''all-trans'' form Q-10 (pharmacologically
active form), resulting in scarcely a trace of Coenzyme Q-9
expanded our efforts in the research and development of Single Cell Proteins
(microbial protein). They have established a unique continuous fermentation
process utilizing these single microbial cells, which does not allow
contamination by undesirable organisms.
this technology, they have developed their own proprietary process for the
production of CoQ-10. The process uses a selected kind of Non-Genetically
Modified Microorganism that is cultivated in a continuous fermentor. The
fermentation broth is extracted, and then further purified by a column
chromatographic process to yield pure CoQ-10. The whole process is controlled
under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and the product is closely monitored
according to the ''Standards for Ingredients of Drugs.
to purchasing what we believe is the purest CoEnzymeQ-10 powder manufactured,
we analyze the incoming bulk material and each of our finished products. Our laboratory
staff utilizes a sophisticated HPLC method to assure proper potency of CoQ-10.
What is CoQ10 and what is it good
(Co-enzyme Q10) is a vitamin-like compound also known as ubiquinone. Ubiquinone
combines two terms to describe this substance -quinone is a type of coenzyme
and ubiquitous indicates it exists everywhere in the human body. CoQ10 plays an
important role in the body's energy production and is an essential component of
the mitochondria, where it helps to metabolize fats and carbohydrates and
maintain cell membrane flexibility. CoQ10 is also involved in the production of
several key enzymes that are used to create ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), a key
energy storage molecule. Without CoQ10, you would not be alive.
also an effective antioxidant that may beneficially affect the aging process.
As we age, our body's production of CoQ10 declines by as much as 80%. Because
it is so important to energy production, and therefore life, researchers
believe that this decline may be a factor in the effects of aging on the human
levels of CoQ10 are found in tissues in the body that work the hardest; like
the heart, the liver, etc. Initial studies into CoQ10 found that persons with
cardiac insufficiencies had very low levels of CoQ10, and that supplementation
increased CoQ10 levels. So CoQ10 is not only an effective antioxidant, but it
supports cardiovascular health as well.
How and when should I take CoQ10?
better if taken with fats and oils. Many CoQ10 supplements contain oils in the
base and are sold as liquid filled softgel capsules. All forms of CoQ10 will
work better if taken with a meal containing fats or with healthy supplements
providing fat, such as fish oil, flax oil, coconut oil, etc.
What about the quality of LifeSource
sells only the natural, 100% all-trans form of CoQ10 that is produced using
natural fermentation and purchased from the leading Japanese suppliers. This is
considered to be the best and most natural form available. Differences in
absorption or utilization of CoQ10 products are mostly associated with oils
added to powdered CoQ10 within a softgel capsule. These differences are far
less important when the supplement is taken at the same time as other oils or
oil-based supplements in the diet, rather than between meals. This makes it
possible to take CoQ10 in a vegetarian form - or even as a powder - and still
enjoy the benefits of enhanced absorption. .
As a dietary
supplement, take 1 softgel 1 to 3 times daily, preferably with meals. We highly
recommend taking this product with a source of essential fatty acids such as
Flax Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Borage Oil or Omega-3 Fish Oil to help
compliment this product.
