Poor cardiovascular health is becoming a worldwide epidemic. An unhealthy diet of processed, high-calorie, high-fat foods, pollution, smoking and sedentary lifestyles all contribute to poor heart health. Not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, exercising regularly and taking the right supplements can all contribute to promoting cardiovascular health. Clinical studies have shown that supplementing with Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) may be beneficial in promoting cardiovascular health. Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 is a blend of CoQSol-CF and vitamin E, designed to promote overall cardiovascular health. CoQSol-CF™* is a unique, patent-pending formula of CoQ10, food grade d-limonene (which serves as a non-polar, organic solvent), and tocopherol (vitamin E). This combination creates a liquid, crystal-free solution of CoQ10 that provides enhanced bioavailability. By improving dissolution, absorption is enhanced. Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 may assist in stabilizing blood pressure and cholesterol, promote cardiovascular health, supports normal immune functions and helps to maintain cognitive health and is vital for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production.**

Ingredients

Coenzyme Q10 
Coenzyme Q10 can be found naturally in spinach, broccoli, nuts, soy, fish, and organ or muscle meats. Coenzyme Q10 belongs to a family of substances called ubiquinones and is a water-insoluble, wax-like substance that is part of the respiratory chain. Since it is a coenzyme, it is necessary to support the action of an enzyme. Enzymes are produced by the body and are necessary for survival and healthy living. CoQ10 is found in almost every cell in the body. Coenzyme Q10 is important for cellular energy production, promoting the strength of the heart muscle and providing antioxidant protection to the cardiovascular system. Coenzyme Q10 is especially important in the ATP production process. All cellular functions depend upon the production of ATP which is the primary energy source for many metabolic processes. As part of the energy production process CoQ10 exists in the inner mitochondrial membrane as part of the electron transport chain. Coenzyme Q10 is a two-part compound that is composed of a long, fat-soluble isoprenoid tail that anchors the molecule in the inner membrane of the mitochondria, and quinine that is capable of accepting and transferring electrons through a portion of the respiratory chain. The Q stands for quinine and the 10 stands for the number of isoprenoid units in the tail portion of the molecule. CoQ10 transports the electrons and protons through the membranes to make the energy production process possible.

CoQ10 serves as a free radical scavenger and an antioxidant. The antioxidant activity in the mitochondria and cell membranes promotes the s

The body’s ability to synthesize Coenzyme Q10 naturally diminishes with age and deficiency has been associated with certain health concerns.

Vitamin E 
Sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amounts of vitamin E and there are trace amounts in corn oil and soybean oil. Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. Vitamin E is one of the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidants in the body and it helps protect cellular membranes from the damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to support cardiovascular health.

FAQ

What type of Co-Q10 is in Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10?
Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 contains CoQsol-CF™* which is a unique blend of CoQ10, d-Limonene and natural tocopherols (Vitamin E). CoQsol-CF is a completely soluble, liquid, crystal-free solution of CoQ10 proven to provide superior bioavailability.

*CoQsol-CF™ is a trademark of Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.

What type of vitamin E is in Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10?
The natural form of vitamin E, d-Alpha-Tocopherol, is in Heart Health Advance Co-Q10. It is far superior to synthetic in terms of retention in the body and absorption.

If my body makes CoQ10, why should I take a supplement?
When you are young, your body can produce adequate levels of CoQ10. However, as you get older, the body’s ability to make Coenzyme Q10 naturally diminishes. Supplementation of CoQ10 has been shown to raise blood levels of this co-enzyme when the body’s ability to synthesize it begins to decrease.

Is it okay to take a CoQ10 supplement while pregnant or nursing?
No. The safety of coenzyme Q10 has not been established in pregnancy and lactation.

Is Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 safe?
Heart Health Advanced Co-Q10 is safe and free of harmful agents. The product is made in the United States in FDA-inspected facilities using Good Manufacturing Practices. Customers can have confidence in the quality and safety of this product.
