Why take CoQ10?

Every one of your cells contains CoQ10 and uses it to produce cellular energy. Your cells need adequate CoQ10 levels however, CoQ10 supplements are typically difficult to absorb so you’ll need a scientifically advanced formulation like MitoQ to ensure superior absorption and effectiveness.

CoQ10 is an important molecule that declines with age. It’s used by the mitochondria to support energy production and remove free radical build-up.

MitoQ VS CoQ10

Mitoquinol (MitoQ) is a miniaturized and positively charged version of ubiquinol (CoQ10) that has the same antioxidant function as CoQ10, but it is modified to specifically reach the mitochondria – where your body’s energy is made and where a lot of oxidative stress can occur.

Difference in structure - MitoQ vs CoQ10

MitoQ is smaller and easier to absorb

MitoQ is around 21% smaller than CoQ10 (important for getting into mitochondria where antioxidants are needed most).

CoQ10 is a large sticky molecule with poor bioavailability. This prevents it from being absorbed into the gut effectively and prevents it from being taken up into cells easily.

MitoQ is more water-soluble than CoQ10 and doesn’t need fats to be absorbed into the body.

MitoQ entering cells and mitochondria compared to coq10

MitoQ is targeted

Unlike CoQ10, MitoQ is positively charged (+) with a triphenylphosphonium (TPP) ion. Combined with its smaller size, this helps it to enter mitochondria.

MitoQ’s positive charge allows it to be pulled, electrochemically, into the negatively charged (-) mitochondria, remember opposites attract!

CoQ10 cannot enter the mitochondria as effectively.

MitoQ smaller dose compared to co-enzyme Q10

MitoQ requires a smaller dose

As MitoQ is rapidly and extensively taken up inside mitochondria by an active process, a very small dose is required due to excellent absorption and bioavailability (10mg).

When you take dietary CoQ10, its large, fat-loving nature makes it difficult to get to where you need it to, meaning you often need to take more of it. MitoQ's small, positively charged molecule is more easily absorbed into the mitochondria to effectively support your body's energy production system.

- Supports your body’s natural antioxidant defenses

- Helps with the reduction of oxidative stress from both internal and environmental sources

MitoQ founded in science backed by research

MitoQ has been clinically shown to:

MitoQ supports heart health

The heart is an energy-hungry organ, which is why it has a high concentration of mitochondria. The mitochondria in heart tissue provide energy for the muscles to pump blood throughout the body. MitoQ significantly supports arterial function in older adults and therefore the health of the arteries by increasing nitric oxide production.

A clinical trial conducted by investigators at the University of Colorado Boulder has shown that MitoQ significantly improved the ability of arteries to dilate by 42%, supporting arterial health.

MitoQ improves exercise performance

The average person will have about 300 mitochondria in each cell – an athlete can have up to 3000. So, it’s important they’re getting the energy they need. MitoQ has been proven to aid in exercise performance; helping with muscle power and output.

One clinical study on MitoQ in cyclists showed the mean increase in average power output during an 8km time trial following 20mg MitoQ supplementation compared to placebo was 4.4% with a 10.8-second faster performance time.

MitoQ supports general health

The powerful antioxidant properties of MitoQ help support human cell health and ageing. Naturally occurring bodily processes and outside stressors like smoking, pollution, and toxic/ hazardous chemicals create free radicals - dangerous compounds that alter DNA and damage or even kill cells.

MitoQ is proven to decrease free radicals 24% better than regular CoQ10, helping to support the body against such free radicals.

MitoQ supports energy production

Supplementation with MitoQ helps to support healthy energy levels. Mitochondria are sometimes referred to as ‘the powerhouses of the cell’ because they generate almost 90% of the cell’s supply of energy. This production of energy is needed for the growth, health, and maintenance of your cells.

MitoQ is the only publicly available antioxidant specifically targeted to the mitochondria. Once there it reduces markers of oxidative stress and supports mitochondrial function.

Why is CoQ10 important for your health?

There are 5 key functions and reasons why CoQ10 is important for health:

Energy production: One of the primary functions of CoQ10 is its involvement in the electron transport chain within the mitochondria. This chain is a crucial part of cellular respiration, where energy from nutrients (such as glucose and fatty acids) is converted into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of cells. CoQ10 acts as an electron carrier in this process, helping to generate ATP and provide energy for various cellular activities.

Antioxidant properties: CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant, which means it helps neutralize harmful free radicals in the body. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can cause cellular damage and contribute to oxidative stress. CoQ10's antioxidant properties help protect cells from oxidative damage, supporting overall cellular health and potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

Cardiovascular health: The heart requires significant energy to function properly. CoQ10 is highly concentrated in heart tissue and plays a vital role in maintaining cardiovascular health. It supports heart muscle function, helps regulate blood pressure, and may aid in improving blood vessel function. Some studies have suggested that CoQ10 supplementation can be beneficial for individuals with certain heart conditions.

Cellular health and immune system support: CoQ10 is involved in various cellular processes, including DNA replication and cell division. Adequate CoQ10 levels are essential for maintaining healthy cell structures and promoting a robust immune system.

Aging: CoQ10 levels tend to decline with age, and this decline has been associated with various age-related health issues. Some research has suggested that CoQ10 supplementation may have potential anti-aging effects and could be beneficial in managing age-related conditions.

Statin-related side effects: Statin medications, commonly prescribed for managing cholesterol levels, can reduce CoQ10 levels in the body. Supplementing with CoQ10 may help alleviate some of the muscle-related side effects experienced by certain individuals taking statins.

Why should I supplement with CoQ10?

CoQ10 is present in small amounts in various foods, such as meat, fish, and nuts. However, the body's natural production of CoQ10 and dietary intake may not always be sufficient to meet the body's needs, especially as people age. As a result, some individuals may consider CoQ10 supplements to support their overall health and address specific health concerns.

Does everyone need a CoQ10 supplement?

Not everyone needs to take a CoQ10 supplement. When we are young and healthy, our mitochondria work efficiently, giving our cells the energy they require by producing adequate levels of CoQ10.

However, with age the natural production of CoQ10 decreases, studies suggest a decline as much as 10% per decade from the age of 30! This can be due to a handful of reasons including poor diet, disease or health conditions, oxidative stress or even certain medications such as statins.

What is the difference between Mitoquinol (MitoQ) and ubiquinol (CoQ10) molecule?

MitoQ is a modified form of CoQ10 that has been formulated for improved bioavailability and targeted antioxidant action. MitoQ utilizes the antioxidant action of CoQ10’s quinone head but with a shortened tail, and TPP+ cation which pulls the molecule through the mitochondrial cell membrane. By collecting at the source of free radical production, MitoQ works to reduce oxidative stress in the cell, supporting cellular health.

MitoQ is the only publicly-available antioxidant specifically targeted to the mitochondria .

Should I take statins/CoQ10 with MitoQ?

Combining MitoQ and statins could potentially have beneficial effects due to their respective actions on heart health and energy metabolism. However, it may be ideal to take MitoQ as well as a low dose (50-100mg per day) of regular CoQ10 supplementation, as statins can reduce CoQ10 levels in the body.

Are there any known side effects to taking MitoQ?

MitoQ is generally very well tolerated.

Do I have to take MitoQ with food?

No, it is best to take MitoQ on an empty stomach. We recommend at least 30 minutes before breakfast to set yourself up for the day.

Can I take MitoQ if pregnant or breastfeeding?

No. Due to the fact that no specific studies have been done in this area, if you are pregnant or a feeding mother do not use MitoQ without professional medical advice.
