Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is also called “the spark of life” due to its importance in the production of energy in the human body. At the age of 50 years, the level of CoQ10 in the body is already reduced to less than half compared to the age of 20 years.
It has beneficial effects on cardiac function and is therefore recommended for those who suffer from heart failure, ischemic heart disease, angina, myocardial infarction, atherosclerosis and hypertension.
It is a powerful antioxidant and in doses of 60-120 mg has an effect of strengthening the immune system by increasing the production of antibodies. It also reduces the side effects of chemotherapy. The most recent studies have shown beneficial effects on diabetics and people with high cholesterol.
Studies carried out in the USA have shown that supplementation with CoQ10 increases the activity of macrophages and also has antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer effects.
Dr. K. Folkers studies published in the journal Clinical Investigator shows that the addition of CoQ10 reverses the effects of aging on the immune system and higher doses of 300 mg daily inhibit breast cancer advancing, in many cases leading to complete healing.
CoQ10 in doses of 60-120 mg / day strengthens the activity of “natural killer cells” that inhibit metastasis of tumors. During infections and tumors the recommended dose of CoQ10 is 240-360 mg per day.
WHY do we recommend Coenzyme Q10 from a non-tobacco source manufactured by the Japanese method of fermentation with microorganisms:
There are now 2 forms of Coenzyme Q10 on the market: a form extracted mainly from tobacco (tobacco source) and a second form obtained by fermentation from a non-tobacco source, originally invented in Japan in the 1970s. Some chemically synthesized forms that little is known at this time have also appeared.
In the case of Coenzyme Q10, quality matters. Coenzyme Q10 of the highest quality is produced according to the method of the country that ‘invented’ it, the Japanese method of fermentation with microorganisms. The Japanese method is a technology for the production of coenzyme Q10 through a technological process of natural fermentation of seaweed in the presence of microorganisms of culture. The manufacturing process of Coenzyme Q10 fermented from algae lasts 9 months. Thus, an ultra-pure Q10 coenzyme is produced, with a bioabsorption and a therapeutic efficiency far superior to the usual Q10 coenzymes obtained generally from the tobacco source by methods that also use solvents.
