Key Benefits At A Glance:

  • Reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease 
  • Boost energy levels 
  • Provide antioxidant protection
  • MegaNatural® BPI grape seed extract is clinically proven to lower blood pressure
  • Chocamine® is clinically proven chocolate extract is clinically proven to lower blood pressure

Product Description:

While every cell in the body requires Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) to produce energy, the cells in the heart require some of the most significant amounts.  Clinical studies have shown that CoQ10 can reduce the risk for cardiovascular problems. Zwell BP Assist with clinically proven Kaneka QH® Ubiquinol CoQ10 restores these antioxicant levels to support cardiovascular health but also  includes patented ingredients Chocamine® and  MegaNatural® BP for addtional blood pressure lowering benefits.

This year, heart disease will affect more women in Canada than any other disease.  Cardiovascular afflictions can include atherosclerosis, hypertension, stroke and heart attack.


About CoQ10

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an extremely important nutrient that every cell in your body must have in order to produce energy. It is naturally found in the energy-producing center of the cell known as the mitochondria, the part of a cell responsible for the production of energy in the form of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate). ATP serves as the cell's major energy source and drives a number of biological processes, including muscle contraction and the production of protein. CoQ10 is involved in making this important molecule.
Ubiquinone vs. Ubiquinol

Ubiquinone is the standard form of CoQ10. The body must automatically convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol - the most body-ready form of CoQ10 - to help in cell energy production by providing quick and efficient replenishment.  Aging inhibits this conversion process hence the requirement for CoQ10 supplementation, where the body-ready ubiquinol form may achieve the most optimal benefits. Human clinical studies have shown that when compared to standard CoQ10 supplements ubiquinol is: 8x better absorbed in the bloodstream; reduces exercise-induced fatigue by 90%; and slows aging by 40%.

Ubiquinol by nature is not stable (i.e. reverts back to ubiquinone). Kaneka Corporation, the world's primary CoQ10 producer, has developed a patented process that creates the most highly stabilized form of ubiquinol as a raw ingredient - Kaneka QH® Ubiquinol. While many supplement brands utilize Kaneka QH® Ubiquinol, how it’s handled during final manufacturing has a significant impact on the stabilized form and the degree and rate to which natural destabilization will occur.  To ensure the superior efficacy of ubiquinol at the time of ingestion, Zwell utilizes one additional manufacturing step, the patented  Q-Nol® process (US Patent 6,740,338) which ensures ubiquinol in the finished product stays stable (i.e. as ubiquinol) through to product expiration.


Chocamine®

This chocolate extract contains no fat or sugar, only the key phytochemicals in cocoa, like theobromine, which support the longer-lasting, less addictive energy profile that many consumers might seek.


MegaNatural® BP

This is a patented grape seed extract that has been evaluated in human clinical studies at the UC Davis Department of Internal Medicine.  It is made in California from a special seed blend primarily from varietal white wine grapes.  The seeds are extracted with hot water, the extract is purified, concentrated and spray dried, loading natural grape phenolics into the extract, and that extract powder is used as an ingredient for dietary supplements, functional foods, and healthy beverages.

Healthy Tidbits

In this century, the world will have more people living into their 80s and 90s than ever before, with the number of people 80+ set to quadruple between 2000 and 2050.

 

Increased life expectancy is largely due to improvements in public health, and healthy ageing is linked directly to health in earlier stages of life.

 

Although it is natural for biological processes to decline with age, the rate at which our body’s decline is impacted by many controllable lifestyle factors such as how we eat, how we move, and how many toxic substances we are exposed to.
