WHY COQUINONE 30?
CoQuinone 30 contains a full 30 mg of CoQ10 and 12.5 mg of alpha lipoic acid per soft gel capsule. USANA’s unique formulation provides these important antioxidants in a natural mixture of lecithin and vegetable-derived glycerin monooleate in a base of medium chain triglycerides. Clinical tests performed in USANA’s laboratories show that
CoQuinone 30 delivers CoQ10 in much higher quantities than from solid formulations or from competitive liquid formulations, making CoQuinone 30 more bioavailable than other CoQ10 products.
Do You Need CoQ10?
The relationship between coenzyme q10 and heart health can be summed up in one sentence,
Every muscle in the body, particularly the heart, the muscle that has most demand for coenzyme q10, cannot function without this vitamin, which is vital for life itself.
As we age, the ability to absorb and synthesize CoQ10 diminishes and the amount of CoQ10 retained in tissues decreases. In addition, CoQ10 may be depleted by several other factors, including overall nutritional status and inadequate levels of the B vitamins, vitamin C, and selenium. Excessive exercise or environmental stresses such as illness and extreme weather may also lower CoQ10 levels in tissue.
Why People Use CoQ10
· Heart failure
· Heart Attack Prevention and Recovery
· High Blood Pressure
· Kidney Failure
· Parkinson’s disease
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid is a natural antioxidant which attacks free radicals that cause damage to the cells in the body. Alpha lipoic acid supplements help to rid the body of harmful substances from the environment. Harmful substances may include cigarette smoke, car exhaust, pesticides, and household cleaning products, among others.
Alpha lipoic acid is another component involved in mitochondrial energy metabolism and recycling oxidized CoQ10. This system also helps to regenerate and recycle other antioxidants, including vitamins E and C and glutathione.
Alpha lipoic acid benefits people with:
-high blood pressure
– people whose heart or muscle is a priority
– athletes and those whose work require constant muscular exertior
– older people whose natural ability to synthesize CoQ10 has diminished
