With technological advancements in lab-testing procedures, new information has begun to surface. A new lab test, known as "ORAC value", has helped bring theories to true scientific validation. One recent discovery is that CoQ10 is not an antioxidant as many of us have been led to believe, but a pro-oxidant. As a pro-oxidant, CoQ10 adds oxygen to the blood, thus extending the life of the cells. CoQ10 carries oxygen to the cells to produce ATP, which powers the mitochondria at the cellular level. This is one of the main reasons why CoQ10 is so great for the heart.
Our research & development team did some brainstorming and decided the best formulation would include ingredients proven to exhibit both pro-oxidant and antioxidant activity while avoiding the expense of CoQ10. The first ingredient they looked to was ATP in its pure form. After exhaustive research, they discovered that ATP is extremely unstable in its free form, so the first challenge was to first find a stable form of ATP so they could make this new formula work and scientifically prove it. Our research & developement team solved the instability problem by using a special enteric coating process for the ATP then added proven antioxidant ingredients to form EAQ10, the ultimate pro-oxidant and antioxidant formula.
We sent a sample of EAQ10 to Brunswick Labs, the creators of ORAC testing. They compared it to a sample of CoQ10 and the results were shocking! CoQ10 has NO detectable antioxidant activity as measured by the ORAC testing methodology. EAQ10 scored an astounding high measurement of 4,334 ORAC units per gram of material. One of the highest scores the lab has ever measured on a per gram basis. The ORAC test is the most accurate way to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, specifically the peroxyl radical.
