Douglas Laboratories Co-Enzyme Q10 with Lipoic Acid
Co-Enzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is an important rate-limiting cofactor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, the biochemical pathway in cellular respiration from which adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy used by the body, is derived. Since cellular activities are dependent upon energy, co-enzyme Q10 is crucial for the efficient functioning of nearly every cell.
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.
