Coenzyme Q10 is a fatsoluble organic quinones compound widely existing in the living body.Coenzyme Q10 has very important physiological and pharmacological actions in human bodies, therefore,Coenzyme Q10 is widely used in physiology, pharmacy, cosmetics and health protection.
|Product Name||Coenzyme Q10|
For normal human beings, this coenzyme serves to metabolize energy for cell growth and development. Due to this role in cell growth, the relationship of aging to its deficiency becomes relevant to some extent. Some studies prove this role of energy metabolism, with some even referring to it as the core of normal body functioning. In addition, it has antioxidant properties which are believed to be useful in reducing the toxicity levels in the cells. Given that it is naturally produced by the body, this detoxification role is specific to cell toxins, which would otherwise affect energy metabolism at this level. However, it is not the sole cofactor responsible for this process, but its role is recognized by many types of research. On the same note, the deficiency of Coenzyme Q10 is manifested by chest pains, heart failure, and blood pressure, although you need to consult a physician to prove this.
Heart failure is one of the symptoms exhibited by patients having deficiencies of this coenzyme. In this case, some studies have shown factual data that proves that having adequate levels of Coenzyme Q10 will reduce the likelihood of heart failure. In fact, this was the initial utilization of supplements having the compound. However, in order to increase its efficiency, experts’ advice a combination of the compound with certain herbs for better results. a study carried out in New Zealand gave a 100% significance to the use of COQ10 as a therapy for heart failure.
People with high levels of this coenzyme in the blood have a tendency to regulate high blood pressure than those with lower levels, a study by US National Institute of Health indicated. For high blood pressure patients, supplements rich in this compound can help lower the pressure back to normal levels. However, another study by Mayo clinic calls for further research on the efficiency of Coenzyme Q10 when on long term use in regulating the blood pressure.
A study by the Cornell University citrshowed the relationship of CoQ10 with corrective disorders such as Alzheimer’s. This could be based on the cell mechanisms and activity that this compound works from. However, given that neurodegenerative conditions comes from various sources, the treatment using the supplements of CoQ10 are yet to have a full approval, with research on its efficiency being recommended.
An early study report showed that cancer patients had low levels of Coenzyme Q10 when compared to those free of cancer cells. Although the study failed to prove if consuming the supplements can treat cancer, factors such as immune improvement favor the cancer patients. In addition, some recent research has shown the improvement of patients on cancer treatment who supplement their CoQ10, with this compound believed to improve the working of cancer drugs.
Due to the cell energy metabolism and antioxidant properties, studies have related the compound to treating conditions such as migraines, muscle and joint problems, gum disease, lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and neurological disorders. However, the gaps in research for these cases makes it just a recommendation for people having such issues and not a treatment option.
In its crystalline form, Coenzyme-Q10 is extremely susceptible to oxidation, a chemical reaction with the oxygen in air. If kept in contact with air, CoQ10 will change from its usual bright orange color to a dark brown color., and will lose potency.
The best way to keep Coenzyme-Q10 from oxidizing is to solubilize the powder (see the Coenzyme Q10 & Coconut Oil recipe above). Coconut oil usually contains up to 40% medium chain triglycerides - natural antioxidant oils that protect Coenzyme Q10 from oxidation.
