USANA CoQuinone 30
An optimal combination of Coenzyme Q10 and alpha-lipoic acid.
It’s all about energy—especially energy on a cellular level. Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that plays a crucial role in creating energy in the cells. Coenzyme Q10 helps convert food energy into cellular energy. There is also a concentration of coenzyme Q10 in the heart and organs with high-energy demands.
USANA combined alpha-lipoic acid with coenzyme Q10 to create USANA CoQuinone 30, a fantastic supplement of these energy-supporting nutrients. The benefits associated with these nutrients include sound muscle function, healthy nerve function, and good cardiovascular health. As you age, your body naturally produces less coenzyme Q10. Fortunately, the proprietary USANA CoQuinone 30 formula is clinically proven to deliver more CoQ10 to the blood stream than competing products.

USANA CoQuinone 30
An optimal combination of coenzyme Q10 and alpha-lipoic acid
The energy that every cell needs to function is produced through a complex process in the mitochondria, organelles within the cell. Within the mitochondria, cells store energy in a molecule called adenosine-5-triphosphate, or ATP, which is synthesized and used by every cell in the body. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential part of the electron transport chain the mitochondria use to make ATP. USANA CoQuinone 30 dietary supplement was developed to deliver high-quality, highly bioavailable CoQ10 to the cells to support the production of ATP.*
Cells with the highest energy demands, such as in the heart, have the highest levels of CoQ10, which has been studied for years in the United States, Europe, and Japan for its role in producing cellular energy for the heart and other muscles. Several human clinical trials demonstrate CoQ10’s effectiveness in maintenance of good heart function.*
A byproduct of energy production in the mitochondria is the formation of damaging free radicals. Nature has designed a molecule in CoQ10 that is remarkable because it not only assists in ATP production, it also works in concert with other antioxidants to clean up the free radicals that are produced during that process and protect against their damaging effects. As an antioxidant, it rivals vitamins E and C. In addition, CoQ10 helps to regenerate and recycle vitamin E.*
Alpha-lipoic acid is another component involved in mitochondrial energy metabolism and recycling oxidized CoQ10. This system also helps to regenerate and recycle other antioxidants, including vitamins E and C and glutathione.*
Why USANA CoQuinone 30?
USANA CoQuinone 30 contains a full 30 mg of CoQ10 and 12.5 mg of alpha-lipoic acid per soft gel capsule. USANA’s unique formulation provides these important antioxidants in a natural mixture of lecithin and vegetable-derived glycerin monooleate in a base of medium chain triglycerides. Clinical tests performed in USANA’s laboratories show that USANA CoQuinone 30 delivers CoQ10 in much higher quantities than from solid formulations or from competitive liquid formulations, making USANA CoQuinone 30 more bioavailable than other CoQ10 products.*
