Healthwize Coenzyme Q10, Don't Compromise...The quality of Coenzyme Q10 on the market varies enormously. Healthwize coenzyme q10 formulations contain the finest and purest Coenzyme Q10 available.
Each softgel in our Original Softgel formulation contains 33mg of highest quality Coenzyme Q10 in a soya bean oil base for improved absorption. This gives 99mg of coenzyme q10 per daily dose of 3 softgels.
Each capsule in our Coenzyme Q10 Complex formulation contians 33.4mg of highest quality Coenzyme Q10 with patented Bioprene for improved bio-availabiltiy. This gives 100mg of coenzyme q10 per daily dose of 3 softgels.
Both formulations are Hypoallergenic. They are free from the following: sugar, glucose, lactose, yeast, artificial colourings, artificial flavourings, artificial preservatives and artificial sweeteners.
Our Coenzyme Q10 Complex contains much more than just Coenzyme Q10. It also contains patented Bioprene and L-Carnitine as well as magnesium amino acid chelate for all round powerful heart protection.
Why Bioprene ?Our Coenzyme Q10 comes with Bioprene for increased bio-availability. Bioprene is patented for its ability to increase the bioavailablilty of nutritional compounds.
Bioprene maximises the quantity of Co Q10 passing into your bloodstream !
Why L-Carnitine ?It is widely accepted that L-Carnitine has significant cardioprotective properties. It has a favourable effect on blood lipid levels and has been demonstrated to be helpful for people with angina, arrhythmias and heart failure. L-Carnitine also assists in the recovery from high intensity exercise. It is therefore a powerful addition and perfect partner to Coenzyme Q10, (but one which will not be found in cheap Coenzyme Q10 formulations).
Note: Our Coenzyme Q10 Complex only contains L-Carnitine that meets United States Pharmacopoeia Specifications.
Why Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate ?Studies suggest that Magnesium enhances over 300 enzyme-related processes in the body including energy production. Magnesium appears to help lower blood pressure and aid recovery from heart attacks by inhibiting blood clotting, widening arteries and normalising dangerous arrhythmias.
Magnesium Amino acid Chelate is easily ionizable and hence a more bio-available form of magnesium supplement. Each capsule contains 50mg, providing 10mg of available Magnesium - or 30mg per daily dose of 3 capsules.
Don't compromise when it comes to your health. If you want the best Coenzyme Q10 that nature can offer ... then choose a Healthwize Coenzyme Q10 formulation.
Coenzyme Q10 - "Vitamin Q"Coenzyme Q10's primary role is in the production of energy at a cellular level. It speeds up metabolism - the process of breaking down food into energy that the body can use.
Research has shown that people with certain illnesses have significantly lower levels of Coenzyme Q10 than found in healthy individuals. It is believed therefore that Coenzyme Q10 can be used both therapeutically and as a preventative for a number of diseases.
The human body can create a small amount of Coenzyme Q10 itself, but requires supplementation through diet. Healthwize Coenzyme Q10 increases the concentration of Coenzyme Q10 within the body without affecting the body's own ability to synthesize the compound.
Some clinicians believe that Coenzyme Q10 is so important in maintaining the healthy functioning of the body that it should be referred to as Vitamin Q!
However levels of Coenzyme Q10 in our body fall naturally with advancing age, starting around age 20. Some doctors believe that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation should start at age 40.
Coenzyme Q10 for a Healthy HeartCoenzyme Q10 is especially plentiful in the energy-intensive cells of the heart and plays an important role in maintaining a healthy heart and circulatory system. It is beneficial to people with a range of heart disorders including:...
- Heart disease, especially heart failure and a weakened heart (cardiomyopathy).
- High blood pressure.
- Irregular heartbeat.
- Raynaud's disease.
Coenzyme Q10 - Anti-AgeingReduced levels of Coenzyme Q10 will cause cells to be short of the energy they require. Cells will then perform sub-optimally and are more likely to become diseased, age and even die. Supplementation with Coenzyme Q10 should mean an increase in energy and well-being.
Clinical studies show that falling levels of Coenzyme Q10 play a significant role in age-related medical conditions. The levels of Coenzyme Q10 in the body decline from around the age of 20.
Coenzyme Q10 - Athletic EnduranceResearch has shown that Coenzyme Q10 can significantly improve athletic performance. In placebo controlled trials researchers found increased work capacity in both athletes in training and in active healthy people.
Other trials with athletes have shown an improved pumping action of the heart and a significant increase in oxygen uptake.
Coenzyme Q10 - AntioxidantCoenzyme Q10 may be an even more important antioxidant than vitamin E in so far as Coenzyme Q10 can re-generate used vitamin E.
Studies show that Coenzyme Q10 supplements can protect LDL-cholesterol against oxidation. This is important in the prevention of atherosclerosis (Heart Disease) as oxidised LDL-cholesterol accumulates on artery walls, reducing the elasticity of the arteries and impeding the flow of blood.
Coenzyme Q10 - Weight LossStudies have shown that Coenzyme Q10 can help with weight loss. Coenzyme Q10 stimulates lipid metabolism in the mitochondria - the body's energy production system.
Studies showed that there was a greater reduction of body fat in dieting obese females supplementing with Coenzyme Q10 than in those dieting without supplementation.
Coenzyme Q10 - Immune SystemCoenzyme Q10 supplements increase the quantity of antibodies made after vaccination, and also increase the number of immune cells to boost immunity.
The recommended daily dosage for each formulation is one capsule, three times a day, preferably with food. Higher dosages may be taken on the advice of your medical practitioner.
Coenzyme Q10 supplementation should be continued over a long period as it may take 8 to 13 weeks for the full benefits to be gained.
Most research suggests shows no harmful side effects from taking Coenzyme Q10, even when taken in large doses. In rare cases it may cause nausea, diarrhoea, upset stomach or loss of appetite. Coenzyme Q10 is not recommended if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
Important Note: Coenzyme Q10 complements conventional medical treatments - it is NOT intended to replace them.
