As the substance is fat-soluble, sunflower oil is added to allow Q10 to be absorbed properly in the body. Q10 is a vitamin-like substance naturally present in our cells, where they contribute to the body's energy production. However, as you grow older, this production commonly decreases. With Healthwell Q10, you only need to take one capsule daily with food. The capsules are easy to swallow and 100% vegetable-based.

How does Q10 work?
Q10 is found in the organs of our body that use up a lot of energy, such as our muscles. In all cells of our body there are mitochondria, in which the cells’ energy is manufactured. This is where Q10 plays an important role: to transform the energy from the food we eat into a type of chemical energy that is then used in muscle growth and other processes that require a lot of energy. Q10 is therefore called the fuel of the cells. The heart is the organ with most Q10.
Q10 is also a vitamin-like substance with functions similar to those of antioxidants. Antioxidants counteract oxidative stress and free radicals that may contribute to more rapid aging of the cells. Free radicals can be released into the body when we're exposed to excessive stress or hard work over a long period of time. Antioxidants therefore play a vital role in counteracting this.
Those taking prescription drugs are recommended to consult their physicians, as Q10 may have a certain blood-thinning effect. Extremely high doses of Q10 may cause mild side effects, including stomach ache or nausea. As long as you follow the dosage instructions of the manufacturer, you do not risk taking too much.
