Also known as ubiquinone, Co-Enzyme Q10 (often abbreviated to CoQ10) was first discovered in man by Lamberts® consultant Dr Len Mervyn.
CoQ10 is a vitamin-like substance found within the mitochondria of every cell in the human body. It is the mitochondria that are responsible for extracting approximately 50% of the total energy from the food we eat.
It is therefore not surprising to find the highest concentrations of CoQ10 in those organs, which have the highest energy requirements such as the heart muscle and liver, and in those tissues that regenerate quickly such as the gums.
A lack of CoQ10 has been associated with periodental (gum) disease. Similarly it has been shown that heart patients and the obese tend to have low CoQ10 levels.
CoQ10 is found in foods, particularly organ meat, but cooking and processing methods tend to destroy it and, whilst it can be made in the body, production declines as we age.
In fact, a lack of energy in older people may, in part, be connected with lower CoQ10 production in the body.
As with all nutrients absorption is of prime importance. Our Co-Enzyme Q10 is presented in an oil base for easier absorption and is endorsed by one of the original researchers who first discovered CoQ10.
