WHY YOU NEED MITO GUARD PLUS?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is present in every cell's mitochondria. It is a vital component of energy production. CoQ10 is not considered a vitamin because it is manufactured in the body from precursors of cholesterol synthesis. However, the body is often not able to manufacture enough of this important nutrient due to toxin build-up or dietary lack of essential nutrients. PERQUE Mito Guard Plus provides CoQ10 in the most efficiently energized, micellized (dispersed into tiny droplets that are most easily assimilated by the body) form available.*
CoQ10's function is that of a catalyst. It provides a vital link in the process of energy production, which takes place in the mitochondria (the battery or power station of every cell). CoQ10 occupies a vital position in metabolism by linking major cellular pathways for energy production. If the essential levels of CoQ10 are allowed to decline, and the body's vital organs cannot meet their energy requirements, the results are: deteriorated health, disease, fatigue, and most commonly, impaired heart muscle function.*
Lower nutrition status and high toxin burden cause the body to lose its ability to produce CoQ10. Studies show that individuals who are compromised in this way have a marked decrease in CoQ10 function after the age of 35. CoQ10 deficiency is all too common in those above 40 because of their poor nutritional state and toxic burden.*
CoQ10 is a unique antioxidant. An antioxidant is a substance that reduces free radical damage. However, CoQ10 deficiency can lead to an increase in free radical damage inside the cell nucleus and the mitochondrial cell "power station." In one study, scientists investigated the effects of CoQ10 against DNA damage. Researchers concluded that "Coenzyme Q10 in vitro supplementation enhances DNA resistance against peroxide induced oxidation."*
