The essential nutrient Coenzyme Q10 is a necessary component of cellular energy production and respiration. It is a component of the mitochondrial electron transport system which supplies the energy required for a variety of physiological functions. Co Q10 provides support to all cells of the body, and is especially supportive of tissues that require a lot of energy, such as the heart muscle, periodontal tissue, and the cells of the body’s natural defense system. Our practice utilizes the same Japanese sourced, pharmaceutical grade CoQ10 derived from rice bran oil used in published clinical studies instead of less effective, powdered or chewable formulations. Usual dose is 1-2 gelcaps daily, or as directed by your physician.
