Q-min contains coenzyme CoQ10, an important essential element required by every single cell in the body. Q-min contains natural, fat-soluble ubiquinone, which is the best choice when selecting a CoQ10 supplement. Unaltered, natural ubiquinone as in Q-min is preferred because it is in its original, fat soluble state.

It is the fat-soluble form of CoQ10 that is needed to be absorbed properly by the intestines. The CoQ10 in Q-min is identical to the CoQ10 produced by the cells in the body. Q-min is produced through a proprietary, natural fermentation process which yields 100 mg per capsule of this bioavailable CoQ10.

As a "coenzyme," CoQ10 helps other enzymes work to digest food properly. Minerals are required to fully activate enzymes and that is why we include mineralized red algae in Q-min.

CoQ10 also helps transport proteins across membranes and separate certain digestive enzymes from the rest of the cell,
which helps maintain optimal pH, which may be the most important feature, of this essential nutrient.

Q-min is scientifically and bio-energetically designed. It has NO added magnesium stearate, artificial colors, artificial flavors or artificial preservatives.

What is Coenzyme Q10?

CoQ10 is an important enzyme found in the mitochondria, "the energy factory" of our cells and essential to aid in the proper cell metabolism of converting nutrients into energy.

As an antioxidant, one of the most thoroughly researched uses of CoQ10 is helping to support and protect the heart and blood vessels from the damaging effects of free radicals.

Although the body has the ability to make some CoQ10 on its own, production declines as we age, just when we need it the most. This decline is most apparent in people over the age of 40, particularly those taking statin drugs which seems to deplete CoQ10. Researchers believe CoQ10 can slow down the age-related increase in DNA damage.

CoQ10 can increase absorption of other essential nutrients, as well as helping to recycle vitamins C and E, further maximizing the effects of vitamins and antioxidants that are already at work in the body.

CoQ10 has been used in medical practices for decades, especially in the case of supporting the medical treatment of heart problems.

Starting around the 1960s, researchers began testing the effects of CoQ10 on immune function and found that people with certain types of cancers had reduced levels in their blood. This is not to say it is a treatment for cancer.

Benefits of CoQ10:

  • Helps support optimal pH in cells
  • Helps support a healthy heart and blood vessels
  • Helps support healthy brain and nerve function
  • Helps support a healthy immune system
  • Helps support balanced blood sugar levels
  • Helps support healthy blood pressure levels
  • Helps support cellular energy production
  • Helps support proper cellular metabolism
  • Helps support healthy gums

We can all benefit from consuming more CoQ10 from high-quality supplements.

Caution: CoQ10 supplements have been reported to decrease the anticoagulant effect of warfarin in at least four cases. Blood tests to assess clotting time (prothrombin time; PT/INR) should be monitored frequently, especially in the first two weeks.

Most experts recommend that adults take at least 200 milligrams daily to experience benefits. Those on statins or weighing over 200 pounds should consider a higher dose.

Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule, 3 times daily, or as directed by a health professional.
