CoMAX Q10 Softgels
Coenzyme Q10 Dietary Supplement
CoMAX Q10 is an easy to swallow softgel capsule that
contains 50 mg coenzyme Q10 in a highly stable blend of oils.
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant and is
essential for the conversion of the food we eat into energy. Energy production
takes place within specialized structures in our cells called mitochondria.
Organs that have tremendous energy requirements, such as the heart, possess much
greater numbers of the energy-producing mitochondria and thus need greater
quantities of coenzyme Q10. As one ages, the level of coenzyme
Q10 has been found to decrease, which affects the body’s energy
Coenzyme Q10 is a fat soluble vitamin-like compound
produced by the body that functions as an important antioxidant. Coenzyme Q10 is
found throughout the body with the highest concentrations in the cells of organs
that require large amounts of energy such as the heart.
Symptoms of congestive heart failure (CHF) that has
shown improvement with Coenzyme Q10 supplementation include: sweating, edema
(fluid retention), cyanosis, pulmonary edema, heart palpitations, vertigo,
subjective arrhythmia, insomnia, nighttime urination, shortness of breath,
enlargement of the liver area.
While coenzyme Q10 is found in small amounts in many
unprocessed foods, it is difficult to get enough in your diet to significantly
affect blood levels. The best way to get coenzyme Q10 in a concentrated form is
through daily supplementation.
Suggested supplementation typically ranges between 50 to
200 mg daily. Some experts suggest that individuals on cholesterol lowering
medication (statins) take 100 to 200 mg per day.
A number of different vitamins, minerals and amino acids
are required for the production of coenzyme Q10 in the body. Various factors,
including aging, genetics and cholesterol lowering medication (statins) can lead
to lower coenzyme Q10 levels in the body.
Certain vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamin A, E, D
and coenzyme Q10 are absorbed much more effectively when taken with dietary
fats. The CoMAX Q10® soft-gel capsule coenzyme Q10 formulation
contains easily absorbed dietary oil.
1-2 softgel daily, or as directed by your health care professional.
