The cells that make up the heart muscle have a very high metabolism and need CoQ10 as an energy-producing cofactor. Numerous studies on CoQ10 have shown its benefit in cardiovascular function. It also serves as an antioxidant.
Thorne's Q-10 Plus combines CoQ10 with taurine, an amino acid that research indicates can support already normal levels of cholesterol, and which, by aiding in the regulation of intracellular calcium levels, helps protect the heart muscle and support cardiac rhythm. The flavonoid compounds in hawthorn (Crataegus oxycantha) appear to strengthen blood vessels and support cardiac function. Hawthorn has also been shown to help maintain already normal blood pressure, heart rate, and exercise capacity. The minerals in Q-10 Plus – magnesium and potassium – are necessary for optimal cardiovascular function.
