The higher the altitude, the higher the levels of CoQ10, tocopherols and phenolic compounds. With these properties depending on altitude, these oils provide antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
Coenzyme Q10: Nutrient that the body needs in small amounts to function and stay healthy. CoQ10 helps the mitochondria (small structures of the cell) to produce energy. It is an antioxidant that helps prevent the damage that free radicals (highly reactive chemicals) cause to cells. CoQ10 is soluble in fats (can be dissolved in fats and oils) and is found in fatty fish, beef, soy, peanuts and spinach. It is under study for the prevention and treatment of some types of cancer and heart disease, and to alleviate the side effects that some cancer treatments cause. Also called coenzyme Q10, Q10, ubiquinone, and vitamin Q10.
