Ever wonder how the food we eat is converted into energy?
It’s thanks to a very important substance called coenzyme Q10, also known as coQ10, which is in charge of producing 95 percent of the body’s energy. As we age our body’s coQ10 production declines, making the need for supplementation very important. Learn what to look for in a coQ10 supplement and the science behind what makes the Isagenix® Ageless Actives™ one of a kind.
Our bodies make coQ10. But as we age, coQ10 production declines. By the time we reach age 60, we make only about half of what we made at age 20. The decline in CoQ10 could be even worse for those who are on cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.
A deficiency in coQ10 can cause weakness and fatigue, and result in oxidative stress to cell proteins and other cellular components.
You can only get minimal amounts of coQ10 in the diet. The main sources are meat, fish, and whole grains. But even one of the richest sources of coQ10, beef, only provides about two and a half milligrams in a 85g serving. For healthy ageing then, a high quality coQ10 supplement is needed.
What should you look for in a coQ10 supplement? Absorption is most important. Not all coQ10 supplements are absorbed the same way. In fact, only about 1 percent of coQ10 is absorbed from typical powdered supplements.
Isagenix partnered with one of the world’s well-respected experts on coQ10 to create Ageless Actives. Ageless Actives provides maximum absorption with a clinically-studied daily dose of 100 milligrams of lipid-solubilised coQ10. For you, it means improved antioxidant status and support for greater energy levels and cellular health.
To complement coQ10, Ageless Actives also provides vitamin D and resveratrol – two important ingredients that along with coQ10 make Ageless Actives one of a kind, and an important part of any healthy dietary regimen.
