Currently, the highest strength of CoQ10 available in the market is 300mg and there are very few brands with this strength and with added piperine.
COENZYME Q10(CoQ10) is produced by the human body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells. CoQ10 is found in abundance in the heart, liver, kidney and brain. It is the life spark that enables our cells to produce the energy that maintains life. It is also a fat-soluble antioxidant.
Our Piperine (Piper nigrum Fruit Extract (Black pepper))is from a brand called Bioperine which is patented and containing a minimum 95% piperine. Piperine increases the bioavailability of Coenzyme Q10 by increasing the absorption by at least 30%.
COENZYME Q10is also known as ubiquinone, which means "found everywhere." It is found in all cells, and in the highest amounts in the mitochondria, the energy producing "factory" of every cell, which the body produces ATP or energy for cells. Without this mechanism, the human body cannot survive.
The body's ability to produce CoQ10 declines with age, disease, poor nutrition, stress and also a common group of cholesterol lowering medicine called the statin drugs such as lovastatin, which inhibit the synthesis of CoQ10 especially in the liver. Deficiencies of CoQ10 may contribute to certain diseases such as cancer. Hence, CoQ10 is sometimes promoted as a treatment for cancer often in combination with other vitamins. CoQ10 also protect the heart from the damaging effects of certain chemotherapy drugs, such as doxorubicin (Adriamycin).
Many people use coenzyme Q-10 for treating heart and blood vessel conditions such as congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain (angina), high blood pressure, and heart problems linked to certain cancer drugs. It is also used for diabetes, gum disease, breast cancer, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy, increasing exercise tolerance and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
How does Piperine work?
Piperine enhances the body's natural thermogenic activity (thermogenesis), hence improving the process of nutrient absorption.
- Increases blood supply to the GIT
- Increases the emulsifying content of the gut
- Increases active nutrient transport
- Inhibits glucuronidation of actives
- Increase energy level.
- Protect the heart; CoQ10 should be taken together with other heart and anti-cholesterol medications.
- Prevent gum diseases.
- Slow down the aging process.
- Improve skin complexion.
- Boost body immune system.
- Powerful antioxidant.
