What is it
Coenzyme Q10 (popularly known as CoQ10) is found in almost every cell in the body, and it is a powerful antioxidant. Larger concentrations of CoQ10 are required in our heart muscles. CoQ10 helps produce energy at the cellular level and is essential for the functioning of the heart muscle.
Clinical studies show that supplementation with CoQ10 can reduce cardiovascular risk. Also, following a heart attack those supplementing with CoQ10 were less likely to have subsequent heart attacks.
BioActive Coenzyme Q10 contains a higher dose of natural (Microorganisms – Whole Cell for Biosynthesis), CoQ10 (200 mg) and is blended with Black Pepper and natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl). Several studies have shown that Piperine (the active ingredient in Black Pepper) can increase the bio-availability of CoQ10 several times over.
