Life Extension Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 with Enhanced Mitochondrial Support, is formulated with a highly bioavailable ubiquinol form of coenzyme Q10 and augmented with the adaptogen PrimaVie® shilajit, which is shown to further increase CoQ10 absorption, promote cardiovascular health and help promote youthful cellular energy production. (1,2,3,15,16)
There is evidence that dietary coenzyme Q10 must be reduced to ubiquinol within the intestines prior to release into the bloodstream, and that this may represent a rate-limiting step for coenzyme Q10 absorption (11,12,13). Super Ubiquinol avoids the necessity for this step which may explain its increases bioavailability to the body. Super Ubiquinol is much easier to absorb and is as potent as some very high-dose co-enzyme Q10 supplements. It is particularly suitable for elderly people and for those with gastric disorders such as IBS and in general for people with poor or sluggish digestion. (17,18)
CoEnzyme Q10 helps to oxygenate all the muscle tissues of the body including the gums. This property helps to prevent the anaerobic bacteria, that thrive in the pockets of gum tissues, from thriving and causing gum destruction.
A combined analysis of six studies published by the Mayo Clinical Proceedings found a slight reduction in muscle pain taking CoQ10 but concluded that larger studies were required. (19)
