Why is Coenzyme Q10 from MVP Biotech® different from others?
There are three key reasons to choose MVP Biotech® CoQ10:
- 100 mg of pharmaceutical USP grade Coenzyme Q10 in every easy to swallow softgel.
- The most bioavailable form in the market.
- Over 15 years of the experience along with GMP standards and Health Canada site licence.
What is CoQ10?
It is a fat-soluble vitamin-like substance present in every cell of the body and serves as a coenzyme for several of the key enzymatic steps in the production of energy within the cell.
Which Foods Contain Coenzyme Q10?
There are plenty of the food sources. The top products are beef (heart and liver), pork (heart and liver), fish (sardine and red flesh), oils (soybean), nuts (peanuts), vegetables (parsley and broccoli) and fruit (avocado) (1).
Why are you using synthetic CoQ10 instead of natural one?
We are doing a fair business. There is no scientific proof showing that our CoQ10 is somehow worse then natural one. We are delivering the best quality CoQ10 to our users.
Is a powder form of Coenzyme Q10 better than solubilized form which is used in Coenzyme Q10 from MVP Biotech®?
The solubilized form is much better absorbed than powder form. On animal model showed solubilized form bioavailability constituted 264% of that for the powder form (2). Moreover, we are using ubiquinol form, which was shown 40% more effective than ubiquinone form (3).
Why are you using Vitamin E along with Coenzyme Q10?
Combination of CoQ10 and vitamin E caused a prolonged improvement in cardiac and skeletal muscle bioenergetics clearly demonstrating its biochemical efficacy (4).
In the description, you haven’t highlighted a link from oxidative stress to performance, is CoQ10 helpful for removing this harmful metabolic state in this case?
This state is not 100% harmful, according to the recent review the role of oxidative stress on muscle homeostasis is quite complex (5). There is no data yet showing how CoQ10 is effective in removing oxidative stress in human muscles, except a heart one. However, as CoQ10 is a great antioxidant (6-8) and since our professional athletes reports some helpful information and there are some animal studies (9, 10), we can say that it is more likely that CoQ10 is helpful for supporting normal oxygen balance in your muscles (*).
Why Coenzyme Q10 is started to be so popular?
One reason is increased awareness that some medicines and supplements used to lower LDL and cholesterol deplete CoQ10 levels in the blood, and possibly the tissues (11).
How long will it take for me to see results with Coenzyme Q10 from MVP Biotech®?
You should start to see results within 1 to 3 weeks. This is the average amount of time reported by our users. But remember, results may vary.
I am a 40 years old male athlete, should I Take Coenzyme Q10?
Coenzyme Q10 levels may decline with aging. Despite of a lack studies on human model, combine animal studies and human tissue study showied the decline with age (ex. in heart muscle wall by 72%) (12).
I am a beginner female athlete. Can Coenzyme Q10 help me with weight loss?
There are opposite opinions for weight loss properties of Coenzyme Q10, some studies show that it is helpful (13), some that it is not effective (14). However, our users mostly report positive effects of Coenzyme Q10 with different types of weight loss diets and supplementation (*).
How should I take Coenzyme Q10?
We recommend taking one (1) softgel 1 to 3 times a day with water or juice before meals.
Is Coenzyme Q10 safe?
Use Coenzyme Q10 only as directed. Do not use: If you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications. Please consult your physician prior to consumption. For additional info please see Contraindications and Warnings.
