Coenzyme Q10 with Tocotrienols includes a substantial amount of mixed tocotrienols and 100 mg of CoQ10 per softgel, in a rice bran oil base (from brown rice). CoQ10, or ubiquinone, is an essential component of the mitochondria, critical for energy production, and an important antioxidant. CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrient, and research indicates that oil-based CoQ10 has much greater absorption and bioavailability than the powdered form.
Tocotrienols are members of the vitamin E family and have been shown to strengthen arterial walls and support blood flow through arteries (coronary, carotid, and peripheral).* Tocotrienols have been found to support the regulation of cholesterol within normal levels. Rice bran oil provides a high amount of gamma-tocotrienol and gamma-tocopherol for better absorption and utilization, enhancing the beneficial properties of this formula.
