It is no secret that we are big fans of CoQ10 here in Revive Active.
CoQ10 is a vital vitamin-like nutrient and a powerful antioxidant found in the body. Ubiquinol levels begin to diminish as we age usually when we reach our 30s.
Our bodies can absorb small quantities with the food we eat but to consume the recommended 100mg a day, we would have to eat 3.5kg of beef, 120 cans of sardines, 60 avocados or 33 tablespoons of olive oil!
When we’re deficient in it, the body ages quicker, the immune system is weakened, and energy and stamina levels drop. In an article released by the Canadian government CoQ10 can help to prevent or treat the following conditions:
After a Heart Attack
A clinical study found that people who took a CoQ10 supplement within 3 days of a heart attack were less likely to suffer additional heart attacks or chest pains. The study also showed that these people were less likely to die of heart disease compared to those who did not take a CoQ10 supplement.
High Blood Pressure
Numerous clinical studies have been carried out with a small group of people with high blood pressure.
CoQ10 supplements can help to improve blood sugar levels for people who have diabetes. It has been reported through 2 studies that 100mg of CoQ10 twice daily helped to improve HBA1C levels.
Did you know that all Revive Active products are suitable for people who have diabetes. To sweeten our products we use the natural sweetener Stevia.
Heart Damage caused by Chemotherapy
Some clinical studies have shown that CoQ10 may help to prevent damage to the heart caused by some chemotherapy drugs. If you or someone you know is undergoing chemotherapy please consult your doctor before taking any medication.
In addition, we have many customers who have undergone chemotherapy and have used Revive Active and our CoQ10 capsules to help boost their energy and immune systems after their treatment has finished.
Research has shown that introducing a CoQ10 supplement prior to heart surgery, can reduce damage caused by free radicals, strengthen the heart function and lower an irregular heart beat during the recovery phase. Please consult your doctor if you are planning on introducing a new supplement prior to surgery.
Gum disease is an inflammation of the gum that causes redness, swelling and bleeding of the gums. Many products exist on the market that are aimed to help and prevent gum disease. Studies have shown that people with gum disease tend to have low levels of CoQ10 in their gums. Multiple studies have found that taking a CoQ10 supplement can also help to prevent and help heal gum disease.
Primary dietary sources of CoQ10 includes:
- Oily fish - salmon or tuna
- Organ meats - liver
- Whole grains
Medication thats can deplete CoQ10 levels
Statins - used for lowering cholesterol
- Fibric acid
- Oral diabetes drugs
- Antidepressant medications
Revive Active - CoQ10 Supplements
Revive Active currently has 2 supplements that contain CoQ10 on the market.
The first is our Kaneka CoQ10 Capsules. Suitable for vegetarians and some vegans (capsules are coated in bees wax), and they are also gluten free. Each capsules contains 100mg of Kaneka Ubiquinol CoQ10.
Kaneka Ubiquinol is up to 8 times better absorbed compared to ordinary CoQ10. This means that unlike other supplement forms of this enzyme, it is 8x more powerful in the body.
As the most advanced, natural form of CoQ10 to date, these capsules can be immediately absorbed by the body, acting as a powerful anti-oxidant to help slow the ageing of cells, while ensuring better cellular energy production.
The second of our Revive Active Health Supplement. This powdered supplement contains 26 active ingredients
including 150mg of Ubiqunone CoQ10.
Ubiquinone CoQ10 is similar to the Ubiquinol, with a slightly lower absorption rate - however it is still very powerful.
