The mitochondria are the cells’ energy powerhouses, and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential component of healthy mitochondrial function.2 CoQ10 is required to convert fats and sugars into cellular energy. Yet, the natural production of CoQ10 declines precipitously with advancing age.3 With an ample amount of CoQ10, the mitochondria can work most efficiently throughout the entire body — including the most densely populated area, the heart.4 CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant, helping protect proteins, LDL, and DNA of mitochondria from oxidation and supporting mitochondrial function.5
More people are supplementing with CoQ10 than ever before. One reason is increased awareness that “statin” drugs used to lower LDL and cholesterol deplete CoQ10 levels in the body. What most doctors don’t know, however, is that normal aging may result in more of a reduction in CoQ10 than taking statins. For example, while statin drugs have been shown to reduce plasma CoQ10 by 40%,6 the aging process reduces CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall by 72%.7 What is particularly frightening is the deficit caused by the dual effects of aging8 and statin drug use that can result in severe depletion of cellular vitality.6
Super Absorbable CoQ10™ with d-Limonene provides the ubiquinone form of CoQ10 in a super-emulsified formulation that increases the amount of CoQ10 absorbed. d-Limonene is a natural compound found in orange oil that disperses and breaks down the CoQ10 particles, which reduces their size and makes CoQ10 more absorbable by the body.
Unlike other supplements that contain micronized ubiquinone CoQ10 particles, Super Absorbable CoQ10 with d-Limonene contains smaller, nano-sized CoQ10 particles that enhance this absorption. Research shows that people taking this formula have higher blood levels of CoQ10 than those taking other ubiquinone formulas.12 Life Extension recommends the ubiquinol form of CoQ10 over this ubiquinone form.
