Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10 is one of the most important nutrients for athletes. Why? Because it's the final nutrient your cells require before creating energy in the form of ATP. Your muscles use ATP to create energy. You can’t supplement with ATP, but you can with its immediate precursor, CoQ10.
If you burn the candle at both ends, and spend a lot of energy, then CoQ10 should be part of your supplement regimen.
How It Helps
CoQ10 is particularly beneficial to the most metabolically active (highest energy-creating) cells like those in your heart (remember your heart is a muscle, that never rests!) and skeletal muscle.
By providing these cells with CoQ10, you can actually enhance how energy is produced in the body. Taking CoQ10 doesn’t give you a buzz like drinking caffeine, but instead allows the cells to produce more energy over the long haul.
This is ideal for people that use their bodies a lot, and work hard.
Why It’s Different
Q-Best 100 is a unique formulation of CoQ10 – it’s been shown to be three times more absorbable than standard, crystalline forms of CoQ10. CoQ10 crystals aren’t absorbed well in the GI tract – most forms are in a crystal state. Q-Best however, is dissolved into a tri-lipid delivery system, meaning the crystals are absorbed into a miniscule fat suspension so they are readily absorbed in the gut, rather than just passing through the body.
And of course, no additives or titanium dioxide, which a lot of manufacturers use as an anti-caking agent.
Uses and Indications
CoQ10 supports the heart muscle tissue, as well as blood vessel function. So, it’s helpful for things like:
If you’re looking for more long-term energy, and want your heart to have a good supply of it, then consider using CoQ10 as part of your supplement regimen. It’s best dosed twice daily, morning and night.

Being from Colorado, we know altitude. Denver and the Front Range areas are roughly 5000+ feet, or a mile (1600 meters) high. This elevation, while nothing extreme, definitely presents a challenge to visitors.
Often times I am asked, “just how long can I rest while I recover from my injury/illness, before I start to lose my fitness level”? All of us are hesitant to give up the gains we have made from all of that training. Although this is not a straight forward question, there is plenty of enlightening research on this subject.
