Heart and muscles energy supply
Physical strain considerably increases nutrients needs. Especially as we age, even a balanced and varied diet might not be able to fully cover these needs.
Coenzyme Q10, also known as “ubiquinone”, is a compound that is found practically in every single cell of our organism. Highest Coenzyme Q10 concentrations are found in the heart, the kidneys, the liver as well as the muscles. Around 45 % of this Coenzyme Q10 is stored in mitochondria, the cell’s power plants, where it plays a decisive role in the production of cellular energy and muscular power. The heart in particular relies on a sufficient Coenzyme Q10 supply to work properly.
Coenzyme Q10 can be synthesized by our organism and be taken up from Coenzyme Q10-rich food such as meats, vegetable oils and nuts.
Under certain circumstances the body’s ability to make Coenzyme Q10 decreases, for instance:
– When the organism is chronically exposed to pollution
– During prolonged periods of physical or mental strain
– When adhering to an unhealthy way of life
– While aging
In these times, a sufficient dietary intake of Coenzyme Q10 is necessary to respond to the energy demand of the muscles and of the heart
L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that is involved in various functions in the body: it is for instance necessary for wound healing or for kidneys function. However L-Arginine is most prominently known to play a positive role in cardiovascular health. Indeed L-Arginine is the precursor of Nitric oxide, a potent vasodilatator that helps blood vessels to relax, thereby improving circulation. Nitric oxide increases the supply of the heart with oxygenated blood which in turn supports heart function.
L-Arginine may be supplied through the diet. Natural sources of L-Arginine are for instance red meat, poultry, fish and dairy products.
When L-Arginine and coenzyme Q10 intakes are low, or when body needs are high, it is useful to take a supplement with high-potency Cardio Arginine and coenzyme Q10 from GQ10 plus capsule.
Daily intake of GC Q10 plus capsule support vascular function and blood supply to all organs.
