What is Coenzyme A and what does it do?
Coenzyme A is a coenzyme that you may not have heard of, however, it has several key roles to play in the body.
It is best known for its role in energy production - essentially it helps cells to deliver fuel from aerobic and anaerobic metabolism for energy release and it is also required for the synthesis of ubiquinone (Co-Q1O)
Coenzyme A essentially is a catalyst for Coenzyme Q10 and other metabolic enzymes that produce energy.
So if you are feeling a little fatigued or lethargic Coenzyme Q A could be just the thing you need to help boost energy levels naturally.
For this reason, it is used by athletes and people who workout or train to provide extra power - it is particularly useful to help with speed and when exertion is required.
This coenzyme boosts physical performance and aerobic capacity and has the added advantage of being able to assist with the reduction of lactic acid. This may lead to less muscle soreness after exercise or when working out with weights.
Coenzyme A also assists the body to convert fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy at the cellular level. It is required to metabolise fat, carbohydrates and protein and helps to convert them into energy at a cellular level - it is even involved in the initiation stage of energy production.
Not only does it help with energy production but it also promotes cardiovascular health and healthy circulation. It is important in proper fatty acid metabolism too.
Coenzyme A also supports cellular detoxification and protects from free radical and methylation degenerative aging processes.
It has a role to play in hormone production and supports healthy blood cell development and boosts the immune system - this is another reason why this particular coenzyme is so popular with athletes.
If your immune system is down your athletic performance suffers. With regards to brain health, Coenzyme A helps with neurotransmitter production and activation. This may help with both cognition and mental performance. It is used clinically to help reduce stress levels and to help lessen the damaging effects of stress on the body. Coenzyme A is involved in the production of the anti-stress hormone hydrocortisone.
As this unique coenzyme initiates fat metabolism for the production of energy it can assist with weight management goals when combined with healthy eating and exercise.
There is further interest internationally in Coenzyme A as it may be able to facilitate the repair of both DNA and RNA - making it a potential key anti-aging agent.
Our body actually manufactures Coenzyme A, but as we age we produce less of it naturally - it constantly needs replenishing, so supplementing with a product from a reputable company can help.
Coenzyme-A Technologies produce high strength Coenzyme A capsules which contain Coenzyme A Modulator Matrix ITM together with the following cofactors to further support energy reduction, fat metabolism and nervous system function: Pantethine, Calcium Pyruvate, Magnesium Malate, Acetyl L-Carnitine (Hcl), L-Cysteine (Hcl Monohydrate), Pantothenic Acid B5, Calcium Pyruvate and DiMagnesium malate.
Coenzyme A deficiencies may present as fatigue, muscle soreness, stress and metabolic disorders.
