Breakthrough, Fast-Dissolving Lozenge
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a cellular energizer that is one of the most critical nutrients you can take to support your health. Now Source Naturals offers you the next generation in CoQ10 formulation. COQ-QUICK is a breakthrough, patented CoQ10 lozenge. Source Naturals spokesperson Tony Lucchesi says, “COQ-QUICK was developed using fast-melt technology—so it begins dissolving immediately on your tongue, for rapid absorption into your bloodstream. And COQ-QUICK is a delicious lozenge, made with natural orange flavor!” CoQ10, a naturally occurring nutrient found in every cell of your body, is vital for the production of ATP, the energy molecule. Some of your most important body systems—your heart, brain, liver, and immune system—require vast amounts of energy to function. And physiological levels of CoQ10 in your body may decrease after the first 20 years of life. COQ-QUICK addresses six of the twelve SystemiCare deep metabolicsystems identified by Source Naturals as critical for optimum health: Energy Production, Circulation/Heart Health, Liver/Detox, Immunity, Cognition/Nerves, and Antioxidant Defense.
Co-Q Quick Addresses the Following Body Systems
Every second of our lives, billions of biochemical reactions are taking place in our bodies. New molecules are produced and spent as old ones are broken down and disposed of. Our metabolism is a massive, complex, yet perfectly orchestrated system of energy that enables us to survive and thrive. In almost every chemical reaction in the body, a spark is needed to energize the reaction. This spark is provided by adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the energy molecule. It is fundamental to our physiology. Amazingly, the body must produce half its own weight in ATP every day. It is a wise life strategy to give ATP production all the help we can. If this system is not working well we may feel tired and fatigued and our health may be affected. Within each cell there are typically 1,000-2,000 mitochondria. This organelle is the site of three connected, complex, multi-stage biochemical processes - the Glycolytic cycle, the Krebs cycle, and the Electron Transport chain - these produce ATP. Carbohydrates, fats and proteins are digested and enter the energy cycle to manufacture ATP. This requires a huge reserve of nutrients including B-vitamins, alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, and Acetyl L-Carnitine.
The liver is a chemical factory, producing digestive and detoxifying enzymes, cholesterol (which at normal levels is vital for brain health and cell membrane integrity), and activating and coenzymating vitamins and minerals for bodily use. The liver is also a clearing station, helping the body detoxify and eliminate the harmful waste products of our metabolism or elements that we consume. The liver’s importance is magnified in our industrialized world, where thousands of chemicals, many of which are toxic and never even existed 60 years ago, are entering our bodies as we breathe air, drink water and eat food laced with pollutants, toxic pesticides and hormones, and trans fats. With this heightened level of activity and stress, it is imperative that we give extra support through proper nutrients to this overburdened organ.
Cognition / Nerves
The human brain is the most complex structure known to man; much of how it functions and enables us to think, feel, contemplate abstract concepts, plan our future, and control many bodily processes is yet to be discovered. The function of the brain and nervous system is based on the unique structure of nerve cells (also called neurons), which take in and send out messages in the form of electrical impulses running through the phospholipids and minerals of the cell membranes. Although it is only two percent of our body weight, the brain consumes 20 percent of our energy. Neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that pass messages from one neuron to another, must be produced in adequate quantities to support mood, intelligence, concentration, assertiveness and calmness. This creates a tremendous need for nutritional fuel and energy. Brain functioning can be significantly improved by the right quantity and quality of nutrients.
The heart is a muscle that must contract without missing a beat about every second of our lives. The cardiovascular system’s importance to our health goes beyond the critical function of supplying food and oxygen to all the cells. The blood transports hormones and other messenger molecules that signal the coordination of numerous critical functions, and through the white blood cells, the circulatory system is the site of significant immune protection. Numerous factors can impact circulatory health: the oxidation of molecules, cholesterol levels, homocysteine buildup, fibrin viscosity, lack of nitric oxide, capillary and blood vessel strength and integrity, metabolic inflammation, and energy generation for heartbeat. Maintaining these and other functions is an intricate balancing act. That balance can be provided by the intelligent use of nutrition.
Free radicals are unstable, destructive molecules with one missing, unpaired electron. In a process called oxidation, the same process that turns iron to rust, free radicals can impact cells as they steal electrons from healthy molecules, starting a cascade that ages the body and affects the body cell by cell, tissue by tissue. This process is halted with antioxidants. Antioxidants selflessly donate their electrons to stabilize free radicals and prevent their effects. Free radicals are natural by-products of mitochondrial energy generation and they are also the result of constant bombardment by pollutants, toxins, excess sunlight, unnatural foods, and electromagnetic radiation. In 1954, Dr. Denham Haimen first espoused the Free Radical Theory of Aging. As we age, our body’s ability to produce innate antioxidants decreases, giving free radicals and the aging they cause the upper hand in our bodies. Supplementation with natural antioxidants can neutralize these harmful compounds.
During the Plague of the 14th century, one-third of the population of Europe died. The question is: why did the others live, even though they were also exposed to the Yersinia pestis bacteria? The answer may be the strength and responsiveness of their immune systems. The immune system is like an intelligent second brain with the unique ability to identify foreign compounds and to quickly produce the specific defenses needed to combat harmful invaders and protect us. The immune system uses a wide variety of cells and biochemicals located primarily in the blood stream and the gastrointestinal tract, such as T-cells, B-cells, macrophages, and Natural Killer cells. We can significantly strengthen and improve the functionality of the immune system through nutrition, supplements and lifestyle modifications.
About Source Naturals
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
