Description
Each capsule contains Ubidecarenone (Coenzyme Q10) 150 mg.
Excipients/Inactive Ingredients: Sunflower seed oil, gelatin, glycerin, colloidal silica, red iron oxide.
Action
Savoy CoQMed Capsules are dietary/health supplement containing naturally fermented Coenzyme Q10 which is also known as ubidecarenone, ubiquinone and coenzyme Q. It is commonly abbreviated to CoQ10.
CoQ10 is found throughout the body. Its ability to convert from a reduced to an oxidised state plays an important part in the metabolism of carbohydrates into energy at the cellular level. It is also the reason that CoQ10 is able to act as an antioxidant. Tissues with the highest energy requirements (e.g. heart, liver, kidney, brain) also have the highest CoQ10 requirements.
CoQ10 is an oil soluble compound. It is manufactured by the body but dietary intake of CoQ10 can be important to maintaining optimal CoQ10 levels especially when natural production is sub-optimal or if CoQ10 requirements are elevated such as in exercise.
Savoy CoQMed capsules are soft gelatin capsules containing naturally fermented CoQ10 dispersed in sunflower seed oil to improve stability and aid absorption. The oily dispersion of CoQ10 in sunflower seed oil is converted to an emulsion in the small intestine by bile acids prior to absorption. To increase the production of bile acids it is recommended to take the capsules with food or drink.
Indications/Uses
