Description: CoQ10 60mg w/Lipoic Acid 30c is available by Douglas Laboratories.
A Dietary Supplement
Coenzyme Q-10 with
Lipoic Acid, provided by Douglas Laboratories, supplies 60 mg of
Coenzyme Q-10, along with 50 mg of Alpha-Lipoic acid, carefully blended
in a base of red wine proanthocyanidins.
Coenzyme Q-10 with Lipoic Acid may be a
useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to supplement their
diet with a more complete antioxidant defense.
Alpha-lipoic acid is a nutritional
coenzyme that participates in the energy metabolism of proteins,
carbohydrates and fats, with a particular role in blood glucose
disposal. It is also able to scavenge a number of free radicals.
Alpha-lipoic acid is unique among biological antioxidants, because it
is soluble in both water and lipids. This allows it to neutralize free
radicals just about everywhere in the body, inside and outside the
Due to its unique sulfur-containing structure,
alpha-lipoic acid can scavenge several types of free radicals, such as
the highly reactive hydroxyl, and singlet oxygen free radicals. It is
also capable of suppressing the generation of free radicals in the
first place, since alpha-lipoic acid chelates transition metals, such
as iron and copper. Because alphalipoic acid is involved in so many
different antioxidant functions in virtually all body tissues, it has
been called the universal antioxidant. Besides being a universal free
radical scavenger, alpha-lipoic acid can also recharge other
antioxidant systems throughout the body.
As mentioned earlier,
it can extend the activity of vitamins C and E. In addition,
alpha-lipoic acid can also regenerate glutathione. Coenzyme Q-10 (or
ubiquinone) is an important ratelimiting nutrient that is a cofactor in
the mitochondrial electron transport chain, the biochemical pathway in
cellular respiration from which adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and
metabolic energy is derived. Since nearly all cellular activities are
dependent upon energy, coenzyme Q-10 is essential for the health of all
human tissues and organs. Coenzyme Q-10 is a naturally-occurring
antioxidant nutrient which retards free radical formation in biological
systems. Coenzyme Q-10 resembles vitamin E and vitamin K in chemical
structure. Biochemically, it functions much like vitamin E in that it
participates in antioxidant and free radical reactions.
