DESCRIPTION

    NOW Foods - CoQ10 with Rice Bran Oil & Vitamin E (50+50) Twin Pack Special 100 mg. - 100 Softgels (2 x 50 Softgels)

    Now Foods CoQ10 with Rice Bran and Vitamin E contains Co-Enzyme Q10, a vitamin-like compound also called ubiquinone. Now Foods CoQ10 with Rice Bran and Vitamin E is an essential component of cells and is necessary for mitochondrial energy production. Years of research has shown that Now Foods Co Enzyme Q-10 supports healthy cardiovascular and immune system functions in addition to its vital role in energy production. Now Foods Co Enzyme Q-10 is Pharmaceutical (USP) Grade. NOW uses only the 100% natural, all-trans form of CoQ10. Consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive.

    • Supports Healthy Heart Muscle
    • Promotes Cellular Energy

    CoEnzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) is a natural compound that is being used clinically to medically treat heart disease in Japan, Italy and China. CoQ-10 is also used as a natural health product in the USA, Canada and some other countries. In the human body, CoQ-10 is found concentrated in the heart and liver tissue, where it functions in the respiratory electron transport system in mitochondria. Consequently, its toxicity to the human body is extremely low. It has ten isoprene units forming a side chain attached to benzoquinone ring and all the ten double bonds in the side chain should be ''trans'' form to be physiologically effective in medicinal applications.

    Two manufacturing processes are currently being used in Japan to commercially produce CoQ-10:

    • 1. Chemical synthesis process
    • 2. Microbial fermentation process

    In the case of chemical synthesis, relatively higher rates of ''cis''-isomers in the side chain (pharmacologically less active form) and Coenzyme Q-9 which has only 9 isoprene units in the side chain are formed as byproducts which must be eliminated from the final product through a purification process. On the other hand, the natural fermentation process yields the ''all-trans'' form Q-10 (pharmacologically active form), resulting in scarcely a trace of Coenzyme Q-9.

    From 1969 to 1978, NOW's Japanese vendor had expanded its efforts in the research and development of Single Cell Proteins (microbial protein). They have established a unique continuous fermentation process utilizing these single microbial cells, which does not allow contamination by undesirable organisms.

    Based on this technology, they have developed their own proprietary process for the production of CoQ-10. The process uses a selected kind of Non-Genetically Modified Microorganism that is cultivated in a continuous fermentor. The fermentation broth is extracted, then further purified by a column chromatographic process to yield pure CoQ-10.The whole process is controlled under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and the product is closely monitored according to the ''Standards for Ingredients of Drugs in the Japanese Pharmacopoeia.''

    In addition to purchasing what NOW believes is the purest CoEnzymeQ-10 powder manufactured in Japan NOW analyzes the incoming bulk material and each of our finished products. NOW's laboratory staff utilizes a sophisticated HPLC method to assure proper potency of CoQ-10 in the 10, 30, 50, 60, 100, 150, 200 and 400-milligram dose products NOW Foods sells. NOW works hard at making Quality affordable for you!

    Now Foods' Mission
    The Now Foods mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

    History of NOW
    In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.
