The combination of CoQ10 with alpha-lipoic acid makes CoQuinone 30 even more effective than CoQ10 alone. Alpha lipoic acid directly helps enzymes within the mitochondria convert glucose into energy. So, together, these nutrients provide even more support for healthy mitochondrial function and energy production.*
Both nutrients are available in most peoples’ diets, but they may not be at levels sufficient to make a real difference in revving up cellular energy. So a supplement is an easy way to help increase levels.
And aiding energy production isn’t the only way alpha-lipoic acid and CoQ10 support mitochondrial function. Together, they also offer powerful antioxidant defense—complementing the activity of the mitochondrial cleanup process—to maintain peak cellular integrity and efficiency.*
Damaging free radicals are a byproduct of the electron transfers that happen during energy production. CoQ10 and alpha-lipoic acid can neutralize those free radicals to protect the mitochondrial structures and functions from damage. This activity is key for maintaining long-term well-being. Protection against oxidative damage has been linked to support for many aspects of healthy aging, including maintaining cognitive function and maintaining healthy skin.*
CoQ10 rivals the antioxidant action of vitamins E and C. It also helps regenerate and recycle vitamin E. Alpha-lipoic acid acts like a super antioxidant, fighting off free radicals inside the cell and in the outer cell membrane. It aids the production of one of your cells’ natural antioxidants—glutathione. And it also helps your cells recycle CoQ10. So together, these ingredients provide potent defense against oxidative stress that could slow down your cellular energy engines.*
