Bio Quinone Q10 Super, provides 30 mg of coenzyme Q10 (Co Q10) per capsule. Coenzyme Q-10 is a vitamin-like compound present in virtually all cells. One of its main roles is in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – the body’s energy molecule. This product is presented in an oil base to maximise absorption.
Coenzyme Q10 (also known as ubiqinone) is a vitamin like substance which plays a vital role in the bodys energy supply mechanism, acting in conjunction with enzymes (hence the name coenzyme Q10) to convert sugars and fat into energy. Coenzyme Q10 is also important as an antioxidant within the body. Coenzyme quinones occur in several chemical forms, with coenzyme Q10 being the only form found in human tissues. All body cells require a supply of Q10, with the heart and muscle cells having a particularly high demand.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential cofactor of enzymes involved in the energy production process. Coenzyme Q10 is stored in mitochondria, structures found within cells responsible for the generation of energy (in the form of a molecule called ATP). Tissues with a high-energy requirement (heart, liver, skeletal muscles) contain higher numbers of mitochondria within their cells. Coenzyme Q10 is also important within the body as a major fat-soluble antioxidant, protecting cell membranes from the damaging effects of free radicals, in a complementary manner to vitamin E. Coenzyme Q10 promotes healthy cardiovascular function, and healthy immune function (cells involved in immune response have a high energy dependence).
Thus the use Q10 can alter the balance of oral bacteria in favour of desirable bacteria, whilst providing a less favourable environment for bacteria causing gum disease ;Q10 supplementation can therefore help to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
