Co-enzyme Q 10, also known as ubiquinone, is a vitamin like substance synthesized by the body that plays a critical role in energy production at the cellular level. It also prevents arteriosclerosis by reducing the accumulation of oxidized fats on arterial walls. Reduced levels of co-enzyme Q 10 have also been implicated in memory loss and impaired cognitive function.
Production of CoQ10 by the body begins to decline as people reach their twenties; perhaps the most recent threat to critical levels of this co-enzyme is associated with statin use. Statins inhibit the production of both cholesterol and co-enzyme Q 10 as they are both synthesized from the same substance, mevalonate.
Each 100 mg capsule of New Roots Herbal’s Co-enzyme Q10 is fermented according to the Japanese pharmacopeia standards to meet the body’s needs for this co-enzyme that is critical to all metabolic function.
