In addition to being an antioxidant, CoQ10 plays a vital role in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the bodys' primary energy source. The daily addition of CoQ10 in the diet of individuals with high cholesterol, heart disease or lack of energy could therefore be beneficial.
As individuals age, the ability to synthesize coenzyme Q10 begins to decline. Sometimes this is due to poor eating habits or stress, but the main challenge for most people is the ability to choose the right foods containing CoQ10, as well as the other nutrients needed to manufacture it in the body. It is a combination of both that provides the body with the best possible amount of CoQ10 for optimal health.
Absorption and efficacy of nutritional supplements are two important features to examine when selecting a nutritional supplement, and Isotonix Coenzyme Q10 contains both. This supplement is in the form of an isotonic fluid, which helps the nutrients to be absorbed into your system quicker. It is usually taken on an empty stomach and when the isotonic fluid enters the body, it is delivered to the small intestine nutritionally concentrated. Then it is naturally absorbed into the blood stream at a rapid pace and little nutritive value is lost. Since the antioxidants are in an isotonic solution, it minimizes the chance that important nutrients will be trapped by fats, fibers and tannins, or inactivated by a highly acidic pH level.
