CoQ10/Ubiquitin For Power and Endurance

Study Results-Sound Science

It is important to me that all our immunoLinkTM solutions are backed by sound science. The focus in this posting is CoQ10 or Ubiquinol. It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy in the form of ATP. Ninety-five percent of the human body’s energy is generated this way. But what does this mean to you?

Here, I want to share some published data on  and its impact on power and endurance. Dr. Cooke at al. have published the results of a well-designed study.  Here’s a table of some of the results:

For people seeking peaking performance, this supplement could provide an edge. It could also be a value add supplement to those who fear "being left behind".
