VitaTech CoQ10 - Product Review
In this product review we are going to have a look at a very peculiar supplement called Coenzyme Q10, otherwise known as CoQ10. It is a supplement that not many people have heard of, but it does have a rather impactful number of purported benefits that can really help you. Let’s have a look.
About the product:
Coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient that is both found naturally and produced in the body. You will also be able to find this substance in many foods we eat.
How it works is that it acts as an antioxidant which then goes onto protecting cells from damage. Furthermore, it plays an essential role in aiding and assisting the functionality of one’s metabolism.
It is important to note that even though CoQ10 plays a key role in some of the vital functionalities of the body, most healthy people have enough CoQ10 naturally (which is why this supplement largely goes unnoticed). However, a few emerging studies have suggested that adding more CoQ10 in the form of CoQ10 supplements may have additional benefits in terms of its functionality and purpose in the body. They also assist in various conditions associated with ageing and some medical conditions which are linked to dropping levels of CoQ10.
Research has shown that CoQ10 has been used to treat many different conditions. There is some evidence that CoQ10 supplements can lower blood pressure slightly as well as help alleviate some symptoms of various heart conditions.
The benefits go beyond just heart health though. Some evidence has shown that the supplementing of CoQ10 has supporting benefits in mitigating the contraction of skin cancer.
People suffering from frequent headaches may find that CoQ10 can help alleviate this as well. Since CoQ10 has been shown to increase mitochondrial functionality and reduce inflammation, those who take this supplement seem to suffer less and less from headaches and migraines.
In terms of exercise performance, which is what most people look to supplementation for, the mitochondrial boosting functions of CoQ10 can help increase power during exercises as well as help reduce fatigue. It does this by lowering the oxidative damage taken during exercise. As a result, you will be able to train harder for longer due to the reduced fatigue.
A typical dose of CoQ10 would be anywhere between 50mg to 200mg a day. The VitaTech version of CoQ10 comes in tabs of 50 mgs and has a total of 30 tabs per bottle. Therefore, how much CoQ10 you would need to take in order to supplement is largely dependent on your dietary intake.
CoQ10 is a rather innovative product from the VitaTech range that will definitely find its place among the other beneficial products this range has. I give it a 3/5 for usefulness and effectiveness.
