Thompson's Ultra CoQ10 300mg is a high potency formula to support heart health, healthy energy levels and to provide temporary relief of fatigue. Co-Enzyme Q10 (coQ10) is found in all living creatures and can be found in every cell of the human body where it plays a major role in energy production and provides cells with the energy it needs to digest food, heal wounds and maintain healthy muscles. It acts in conjunction with enzymes (hence the name "co-enzyme") and it plays an essential role in energy production, especially in the heart: it helps this organ beat more than 100,000 times each day. In addition, CoQ10 also acts as an antioxidant (similar to vitamins C and E), helping to neutralize the cell-damaging molecules as free radicals. Long-term use of statin drugs lead to CoQ10 depletion in the body, supplementing with CoQ10 can assist in replenishing blood levels of CoQ10 depleted by statin medication. Cardiovascular diseases such as congestive heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, angina, cardiomyopathy, mitral valve prolapse, coronary bypass and angina can benefit from Co-Q10 supplementation.
