CoQ-10 is literally the “spark plug” of the cell. Just as a car can’t run without that initial spark, the human body can’t get going without CoQ10. It is an essential component of the mitochondria, which produce the power that cells need to divide, move, contract, and perform all their other functions. CoQ10 also plays a critical role in the manufacture of adenoisine triphosphate (ATP), the energy that drives all body processes. What’s more, CoQ10 is a very important antioxidant that protects the cells against damage.
Studies show that our body has the highest amount of CoQ10 during our 20s. But then it starts to decrease. Several medical problems can result, such as fatigue, muscle cramps, weakness, emotional troubles and hypertension. These are also significantly the side effects of statin drugs which destroy CoQ-10 in the human body.
The heart is a remarkable organ, as it beats 100,000 times every 24 hours and 2.5 billion times by age 70, without a single holiday. Consequently, it requires a huge amount of energy. So nature has placed more CoQ10 in the heart than any other organ.
Dr. Karl Folker, one of the early pioneers of CoQ10, says that a 25 per cent deficiency in CoQ10 is sufficient to cause illness, and a 75 per cent loss can result in death.
Over four thousand clinical studies have proven that the COQ-10 you have in your body, the longer and healthier you live. Studies at the University of Texas at Austin showed that 75% of all heart patients have severe deficiencies of COQ-10.
The largest impediment in supplementing CoQ-10 to the human body is the incredibly poor absorption when taken orally. Physicians have found that intravenous CoQ-10 is amazingly effective but oral use is limited because of the high doses necessary for results.
Increase Absorption Dramatically
Regular CoQ-10 is absorbed at apporiximately 7-9%, some emulsified forms are 10-20%; the balance remains in the gastrointestinal tract and is lost. Liposomalized CoQ-10 is absorbed at a much higher level in the bloodstream.
What Are Nanotechnology Liposomes?
Nanotechnology refers to creating micro particles of the active material one wishes to coat with liposomes. This requires expensive equipment and considerable time to complete.
These micro particles are then inserted into special fat soluble materials resembling micro bubbles just a few millionths of an inch in diameter which are capable of sliding through the gut lining without being digested. The “bubbles” are now in the blood stream and are offered to the cells of the body as needed. As with the gut functions within the cell. A huge advance in both efficiency and effectiveness of supplemental nutrients!
