Healthy Heart and Coenzyme Q10

The heart never stops beating. Heart cells have a very high energy demand and have a very high concentration of the enzyme Co Q 10.  Coenzyme Q 10 is used to convert an electron from broken up triglycerides into energy the cell can use to keep working.

Age will lower coenzyme Q 10 production.  Cholesterol medication will significantly lower Coenzyme Q 10 and can become a health issue.  Low Coenzyme Q 10 can cause a sudden heart attack, muscle pain, nerve function issues with walking, and it can lead to Parkinson’s disease.

Ubiquinone is the active form of Coenzyme Q 10.  Coenzyme Q 10 has the highest absorption rate in the Ubiquinone form.  Ubiquinol is an advertised form of Coenzyme Q 10. Ubiquinol is non active and has to be converted into Ubiquinone at the intestinal lining.  No one knows the rate of conversion as it varies with each individual.  Stick with the active form, Ubiquinone!

Coenzyme Q 10 in the form of Ubiquinone needs rice bran oil for absorption, and it needs vitamin E in the all natural 8 fraction tocopherols to allow absorption into the energy producing mitochondria.
