Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is partially produced within the body itself. However, this ability decreases with age. Prairies of Life's Coenzyme Q10 is obtained through a natural and biological fermentation process and therefore provides only the biologically active trans form.
CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone, is a fat-soluble vitamin-like molecule that is naturally found in all cell membranes in our bodies. It is an integral part of our diet but is also synthesized endogenously.
Ubiquinone or Coenzyme Q (CoQ) is a lipophilic molecule that is ubiquitous in cell membranes and especially in mitochondria. Ubiquinol is the reduced form of ubiquinone. The form used for this product is Ubiquinone.
Several studies conclude that CoQ10 administered as ubiquinone has an excellent safety profile (Miles, 2007; Hidaka et al., 2008)
COQ10 is derived from fermentation with Rhodobacter sphaeroides bacteria, without GMO. Ubiquinone is the natural form of Q10 synthesized in the body. It is very stable. Rhodobacter sphaeroides is an aquatic bacterium that obtains its energy by anaerobic photosynthesis and is able to synthesize large quantities of coenzyme Q10.
