Recent Studies In Coenzyme Q10 Reveals One Of The Most Powerful Antioxidants Known To Man

PacificCoast NutriLabs offers feedback on recent discoveries concerning the benefits of Coenzyme Q 10.

Online PR News – 14-May-2014 – Ashwaubenon/WI – In recent years there have been numerous studies regarding Coenzyme Q10 that have yielded numerous positive results on the effects of the compound within the body. Though coenzyme q 10 ( ), usually known simply as CoQ10, is synthesized naturally within the body, nutritional supplements are readily available. According to several studies that concerned CoQ10, an increased level of this substance within the body produces a great number of health benefits, with little to no side-effects.

Coenzyme Q 10's alternate name, ubiquinone, comes from the word ubiquitous, which means "found everywhere". CoQ10 plays a key role in producing energy in the mitochondria, the part of a cell responsible for the production of energy in the form of ATP.

"I'm quite happy about these discoveries." Says John W. Collins, president of PacificCoast NutriLabs, a company known for manufacturing high-quality pharmaceutical supplements such as the PLATINUM Series CoQ10. "It's discoveries like these that drive me and everyone working for the company forward. With each new study that offers us insight, comes an opportunity to improve the lives of those we serve, namely our clients."

The best known use for CoQ10 is for protecting against heart failure and cardiomyopathy. Researches have shown that individuals with heart ailments have indeed been found to possess lower levels of CoQ10 in the cells of their heart muscles. In one study, 641 people with coronary infarction were randomized to receive either CoQ10 (2 mg per kg body weight) or a placebo plus basic therapy. Those who took the CoQ10 had a considerable decrease in symptom seriousness and lesser hospitalizations.

Another group of subjects found to have lower levels of CoQ10 are those with Parkinson's disease. Initial testing has found that increased CoQ10 has been known to increase neurotransmitter dopamine, which is known to be lower in those suffering from Parkinson's disease. A small, randomized controlled trial examined the use of 360 mg CoQ10 or a placebo in 28 treated and stable Parkinson's disease patients. After 4 weeks, CoQ10 provided a mild but significant improvement in early Parkinson's symptoms and significantly improved performance in visual function amongst the subjects.

"I'm happy to know that those in a solid CoQ10 regimen could benefit greatly from these studies; whether they have any underlying conditions or not." Says John W. Collins. "We hope that science will continue to make huge strides, to give us the opportunity to make the lives of our clients better."
