You may never have heard of this nutrient, but studies at the leading nutritional research laboratories point to the vitamin-like substance coenzyme Q10 (or CoQ10) as key to a fertility diet.
And supplements producer Longevity Herbs thinks more couples are taking notice.
The Los Angeles firm reports that, in its first weeks on the market, its new CoQ10 capsules have already doubled their market share several times over. According to LongevityHerbs founder Bryan Abel, his new product line is in the enviable position of having to ramp up production early on to meet rising demand.
"Much of the surging interest in CoQ10 supplements comes from research linking it to better results in male and female fertility therapy," says Abel. "It has long been recognized for its antioxidant properties—but the role CoQ10 may play in fertility are of interest to a whole new group of consumers."
A naturally occurring substance essential to the body's conversion of food into energy, CoQ10 is recognized as a potent antioxidant identified with circulatory system and anti-ageing benefits. Major nutrition studies now suggest CoQ10 also plays a role in fertility.
The oil-soluble, vitamin-like substance is present in most eukaryotic cells, primarily in the mitochondria. It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy. An estimated ninety-five percent of the human body’s energy is in fact generated this way.
In the female reproductive system the mitochondria in human eggs deteriorate as women age, resulting in decreased energy production. Since production of a mature egg and normal early embryo development require large amounts of energy, chromosomal abnormalities and poor egg quality increase as women age.
And in the case of males, CoQ10 may improve sperm motility while removing free radicals, substances that can damage cells. Coenzyme Q10 is normally produced in the body, but levels decrease as people age or are impacted by certain medical conditions.
"Our highly absorbable coenzyme Q10 utilizes a more stabilized, all natural encapsulation of the nutrient formulated specifically for enhanced stability, purity and bio-availability," notes Abel.
