Coenzyme-Q10 (CoQ10) is the primary energy source for the heart and is a key component for creating cellular energy known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Therefore, coenzyme-Q10 is often referred to as the "biological spark plug." As we age, the level of CoQ10 in our body gradually decreases, and the lack of CoQ10 can negatively impact the function of the heart. Supplementing our body's natural CoQ10 level can significantly support heart function, especially as we age.
Most health food supplements on the market contain 30 mg to 60 mg of CoQ10 that is synthesized in a lab. In fact, in China and some other countries, it is rare to see products that contain 100 mg CoQ10 or more without the need of a doctor's prescription. The absorption rate of these CoQ10 products is typically very low and often requires constant use at high doses which can produce undesired side effects and potential damage the body.
Confidence USA, Inc. uses a highly scientific combination of CoQ10 along with L-Carnitine to increase the absorption of CoQ10 compared to standard CoQ10 products helping to support optimal cardiac function. CoQ10 from Confidence USA, Inc. can stop the need for long-term use of high-dose synthetic CoQ10.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10): Confidence USA, Inc. uses a unique combination of CoQ10 and L-Carnitine to increase absorption over standard CoQ10 products. CoQ10 is chemically known ubiquinone and is found in nearly every cell and tissue in the body including the brain, heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. It promotes energy metabolism and is a key energy source for the heart muscle. CoQ10 is often referred to as the "biological spark plug."
CoQ10 exists in every cell in the body and works to support myocardial metabolism. CoQ10 is also a powerful antioxidant, supports immune system function and can support energy production and vitality in those who often feel fatigued or whom are active in sports and exercise.
Experts believe that many people, especially elderly and those who are active in sports and strenuous exercise are lacking in CoQ10. Europe, Japan and other developed countries measure CoQ10 levels in the blood as an indicator of good health. Confidence USA, Inc. CoQ10 softgels can support healthy blood levels of CoQ10 in the body and help to support sufficient energy for the heart.
L-Carnitine: L-carnitine is an amino acid found in nearly every cell in the human body. It serves many roles such as antioxidant, fatty acid metabolism, bone health and more. But most importantly, it is required for energy production in the heart muscle. In fact, it is becoming popular for supporting mitochondrial function.
Below is a list of scientific research articles studying L-Carnitine for heart health:
Davini, P., et al. Controlled study on L-carnitine therapeutic efficacy in post-infarction. Drugs Under Experimental and Clinical Research. 18(8): 355-365, 1992.
Rizos, I. Three-year survival of patients with heart failure caused by dilated cardiomyopathy and L-carnitine administration. American Heart Journal. 139: S120-S123, 2000.
Sinatra, S. Metabolic cardiology: an integrative strategy in the treatment of congestive heart failure. Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine. 15(3): 44-52, 2009.
L-Carnitine and CoQ10 are two important and closely related nutrients involved in energy metabolism within the body. They not only support the combination of fat, carbohydrate and protein metabolism, but also provide and support the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). If the body lacks L-carnitine and CoQ10, then the body can lack in energy production.
When people eat food, some of it is converted into fat in the body. The function of L-carnitine is to transport the long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria within the cell membrane for the CoQ10 to synthesize ATP (adenosine triphosphate) for energy. This is also the main source of power for the muscles in the body. L-carnitine deficiency is a main cause of poor energy levels. Since the only dietary sources of L-carnitine are meat, vegetarians are especially at risk of being deficient in L-carnitine.
In conclusion, L-carnitine is the body's primary energy carrier and provides fuel for the cells in the body. CoQ10 is the "spark plug" for the body's energy production. The combination of L-carnitine and CoQ10 can be more effective than either nutrient alone.
Clinical research found that the combination of CoQ10 and L-carnitine provides many benefits for the body:
Another great aspect of CoQ10 and L-carnitine are their ability to neutralize free-radicals (antioxidant activity). When the body converts the food we eat into energy for our body, free radicals (oxidants) are produced. The combination of CoQ10 and L-carnitine helps support the removal of free radicals from the body.
