Co-Q Max for cardiovascular and immune health

What is Co-enzyme Q10?

Co-Enzyme Q10 is found in every cell of the body and is highly concentrated in heart muscles.

Co- Enzyme Q10 is useful in cellular energetics, including enhanced physical performance, oxygen utilisation and endurance with fatigue during and after exercise. Other areas of proven effectiveness include:

Cardiovascular disease
Angina pectoris
Congestive heart failure
Immune insufficiencies
Chronic fatigue
Free radical stress

A suboptimal amount of Co-enzyme Q10 will affect muscle status, circulation, cardiovascular health and severely deplete the immune system.

Co-enzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring molecule similar in structure to Vitamin E. Co-Enzyme Q10 is found in all cells and is an essential component of the 'energy furnaces' responsible for a cell's energy production.

Co-Enzyme Q10 also acts as an antioxidant

Co-Enzyme Q10 also acts as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger, thus is essential for the health of all human tissues and organs.

Deficiencies of this substance have been reported in a wide range of conditions, including cardiovascular disease, hypertension and periodontal disease.

In addition, animal studies have shown that the decline in Co-Enzyme Q10 levels that occurs with age may be partly responsible for age related deterioration of the immune system.

Co-Q Max provides high-dose Co-Enzyme Q10 (Ubidecarenone), an important intracellular enzyme, essential for the formulation of the primary donor of energy to the cell, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

Co-Q-Max is an effective lipid soluble antioxidant and is capable of stabilising cell membranes, as well as preventing depletion of metabolites necessary for the synthesis of ATP.

What is contained in Co-enzyme Q10/Co-Q Max?

Each Co-Q Max soft gel capsules provides:

Co-Enzyme Q10 (Ubidecarenone) 150mg
