Whether you call it Coenzyme Q10, CoQ10, Ubiquinol, Ubiquinone or any other of its long list of names, it doesn't matter. The one thing that stays the same is the enormous impact that this tiny nutrient has on your body. CoQ10 also promotes healthy cardiovascular function.
Whether you call it Coenzyme Q10, CoQ10, Ubiquinol, Ubiquinone or any other of its long list of names, it doesn't matter. The one thing that stays the same is the enormous impact that this tiny nutrient has on your body.
A naturally occurring Quinone, Swanson Ultra CoQ10 is found in almost every aerobic organism on earth. Even bacteria rely on it the same way as humans do. First identified and isolated in 1957 from the mitochondria in a beef heart, it gets its 'other' name (Ubiquinol) from its complete ubiquity throughout not just the human body but nature itself.
With similar properties to certain vitamins, it has been described as a 'vitamin-like nutrient' in the past because it is naturally synthesised in the body. Levels of CoQ10 are generally highest in the heart, liver and kidney, those with the highest rates of metabolism. And there is a reason for that!
Functioning primarily as an energy transfer molecule, its main biochemical action is to work as a cofactor in the electron-transport chain. In other words it helps create the reactions which generate ATP (or adenosine triphosphate) across the human body.
Still not quite following? ATP is often described as the 'molecular currency of energy'. Put simply? It is the direct result of the metabolic process. When our bodies turns our food into energy, ATP is that energy.
So Swanson Ultra CoQ10 can directly impact on your body's ability to function on a cellular level. Are you starting to see the bigger picture?
This remarkable little mitochondrial energiser seems to have an ever increasing number of uses. It goes without saying that the ability to generate ATP is unequivocally one of the most important processes in the human body, without it we'd just die, but what does that mean to us really and what else can Swanson Ultra CoQ10 do?
On a very basic level, with additional levels of Swanson Ultra CoQ10 in our bodies we not only give ourselves more energy on a cellular level but it also allows us to perform at a far superior level aerobically (professional athletes have been using it for years). The result is a fitter, healthier you.
This is not its limit. As a powerful antioxidant, Swanson Ultra CoQ10 is also capable of having a remarkable impact on common heart ailments and neurological disorders. There is even growing evidence that it may help in the fight against cancer.
As we age, our CoQ10 supply dwindles and the signs of ageing become more pronounced. Because CoQ10 is vital for the ongoing health of virtually every human tissue and organ, Swanson Ultra CoQ10 fights the signs of ageing from within.
