As we grow old, we become more preoccupied with the daily tasks we need to perform. We all get responsibilities and obligations that have to be taken care of. Some of us may get bigger jobs, have achieved their dreams and aspirations, raising kids, or even having the best of time traveling and exploring the world. Adding more years in our lives is everyone’s hope and we do things to keep our bodies stay fit and healthy so we can still enjoy the next precious years with our family. In other words, we all aim for longevity. Adding potentially several years in our lives is everybody’s primary concern.
Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ10) plays a critical role in the body. It is necessary for the protection of energy in our cells to be able to function properly. It is known as the energy spark plug of the cell. Deficiency of CoQ10 can contribute to all types of issues such as headache, blood pressure, ulcers, heart issues, and all types of other diseases. Unfortunately, when we turn in the age of twenty, the level of CoQ10 starts to decline.
CoQ10 is well known for its heart and vascular health benefits. Within the mitochondria, CoQ10 is utilized in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. More than 90% of the energy from our cells is produced from the aerobic respiration that takes place in the mitochondria. CoQ10 facilitates electron transfer within this inner membrane for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the usable unit of energy. By helping the cellular powerhouses known as mitochondria burn fuel more effectively, CoQ10 is able to protect not only the heart but every cell in your body. There is evidence for CoQ10’s protective effects in the
- brain and nervous system
- asthma and chronic lung disease
- diabetes and the metabolic syndrome
- ocular health
- the aging immune system
Most excitingly, there has been an idea that CoQ10 supplementation can extend the life span of both primitive animals and mammals, laying the groundwork for a similar pro-longevity effect in humans. Recent researches on CoQ10 suggest this to be a possibility.
Irregular diets, cholesterol-lowering medications, and the natural aging process works against the body when it comes to natural CoQ10 production. In order to produce CoQ10 naturally, the body must go through a complicated process for production. As we enter to adulthood, our body began to losing the natural ability to maintain optimal levels of CoQ10, the most efficient way to restore the a healthy level of CoQ10 is through supplementation.
BIOPRO-Q: The Ubiquinol Advantage
BIOPRO-Q has ubiquinol, the active form of CoQ10, which is the form that is bio-identical to the form found in the body. Ubiquinol is more easily absorbed than the conventionalCoQ10. Optimal levels of CoQ10 can be restored quickly and effectively with ubiquinol.
Achieving and maintaining adequate blood levels of ubiquinol is critical for everyone, but even more so for individuals who want to maintain their energy, heart health, brain health, and immune function. BIOPRO-Q has another important ingredient called BioPerine, a patented form of piperine, that is obtained from black pepper extract which has been clinically proven to help the absorption of CoQ10 even more effective.
Coenzyme Q10 is also naturally present in the cell membranes. Another function of CoQ10 is to make sure the cells’ plasma membranes remain flexible. The fluidity of the membranes is crucial to proper physical performance since membrane fluidity affects membrane receptors, carriers and enzymes.
Choose the Right Supplement For You
Eating the right food, sometimes is not enough. It is also important to consider what our body absorbs out from the foods we eat. The ubiquinol that is present in BIOPRO-Q is fat-soluble, making it easier to be absorbed by the body. Aside from being effective, BIOPRO-Q is also safe as it is one of the few products with ubiquinol CoQ10 made in the USA that adheres to good manufacturing practices designated by the FDA.
