After the age of 30, natural levels of CoenzymeQ10 (CoQ10) begin to diminish. By the age of 70, your CoQ10 levels may be critically low. Further loss of CoQ10 may come from stress, illness and medications such as statin drugs, oral hypoglycemic drugs and beta-blockers. While many doctors fail to inform you of these facts, many alternative practitioners believe that, given CoQ10’s potential benefits and good safety record, most people over the age of 40 would be wise to take CoQ10 supplements. The fact is that every cell and system is distressed by an energy shortage due to insufficient CoQ10.
Without adequate CoQ10, cells cannot make the energy they need to sustain themselves. Eventually, your whole body suffers the malaise of low-energy production. CoQ10 is an essential component of every cell, and supplemental CoQ10 has a wide range of potential uses. CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone, is a cellular energy booster and a powerful antioxidant, first identified in 1957 and widely used in Japan. It is a powerful fat-soluble vitamin-like substance synthesized in the membranes of cells. It is found primarily in mitochondria, the cells' centers of energy production, and is an essential part of the energy-producing process known as the electron transport chain. It acts as a kind of spark plug, assisting in the generation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) the body’s basic energy currency.
CoQ10 is most highly concentrated in heart muscles because of the high energy needs there. Research suggests that CoQ10 may be beneficial for improving many aspects of cardiovascular health.1 Given CoQ10’s essential role in maintaining heart health, it’s alarming to realize that the most widely-prescribed cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can severely deplete CoQ10.2
CoQ10 can also energize brain cells. The brain is especially compromised by a deficit of CoQ10. Reduced levels of CoQ10 (and ATP) occur as the brain ages. Studies show that replenishing CoQ10 supports the brain and may improve mental functions.
One problem with CoQ10 is that it’s not always well absorbed within the body. However, research shows that combining CoQ10 with piperine, a compound found in black pepper, significantly enhances CoQ10 absorption by over 30%.3
What Makes Stop Aging Now's MAX-Q10™ Superior to Other CoQ10 Products?
- MAX-Q10™ is made with the highly bioavailable Kaneka Q10® trans-form CoQ10. Kaneka Q10® is bio-identical to the CoQ10 that is produced naturally within the body. The natural trans-form variety of CoQ10 that we use is more readily absorbed than synthetic varieties.
- MAX-Q10™ is formulated with the only CoQ10 that is made in the USA, Kaneka Q10®, which is the most thoroughly researched and trusted CoQ10 in the world. Inferior brands of CoQ10 may be made overseas in facilities of questionable integrity.
- MAX-Q10™ is the purest and most natural CoQ10 available. MAX-Q10™ is made with the only yeast-fermented, all natural form of CoQ10 available, Kaneka Q10®, which lacks the impurities found in synthetically produced products. Not all CoQ10 is the same! Many supplements contain the cheaper, synthetic CoQ10, which is often derived from tobacco leaves and may be less effective.
- MAX-Q10™ is enhanced with BioPerine®, an antioxidant-rich extract of black pepper standardized to contain 95% piperine (except for the chewable version). Research has shown that BioPerine® significantly enhances CoQ10 absorption within the body by over 30%.
- MAX-Q10™ is available in softgels, capsules and citrus-flavored chewable tablets for your convenience.
General CoQ10 Dosage Guidelines
CoQ10 is widely researched and very well tolerated by most individuals. While there is no established ideal dose for CoQ10, studies have used doses of CoQ10 ranging from 30 mg to 1,200 mg. We recommend doses ranging from 60 mg to 600 mg daily for adults. The general guideline is 1 mg per pound of body weight. So if you weigh 150 lbs., you should take 150 mg. But this is a general guideline. Most people take 100 to 200 mg daily. Statin drug users may want to take higher dosages (in the range of 200 to 600 mg daily), as statins have been shown to deplete CoQ10 levels.
Please remember that health conditions can be both serious and complex so it is very important that you discuss any supplement use with your doctor. Also, do not hesitate to contact our Certified Nutrition Experts for additional recommendations.

Whether you take our premium products or those from another company, we strongly encourage to you to be sure to know where they are manufactured. If the bottle label doesn't say "Made in the USA", they are most likely not. Our manufacturing facilities are located in California, Illinois and Florida.
