Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a very important enzyme for proper cellular function – without it, our cells would not be able to produce necessary energy and would die. Although CoQ10 is produced by the body, levels naturally decrease with age and may be especially low in patients with chronic diseases. Levels can also be lower in patients who are on statins (for high cholesterol). Insufficient CoQ10 levels can lead to dysfunctional energy metabolism, accelerated age-related decline, increased inflammation, and fatigue.
Ojas CoQ10 is intended to replenish CoQ10 levels in order to support cellular energy production and maintenance of general health.
Ojas CoQ10 is produced via natural bacterial fermentation rather than through a synthetic process.
