Unique Combination for Energy and Muscle Support

CoQ10, L-Carnitine and Magnesium: Unique Combination for Energy and Muscle Support

Whether it’s an 8-hour workday or a 1-hour workout, Doctor’s Best CoQ10, L-Carnitine and Magnesium provides three-pronged energy and muscle support to keep you going and help you quickly recover from the day’s physical activity. This unique combination of CoQ10, L-Carnitine, and Magnesium are critical for our energy production, muscle mass and muscle recovery.1,2,3

What are the benefits of CoQ10, Magnesium and L-Carnitine?

Besides being a powerful antioxidant, CoQ10 also supports our ATP production, helping to increase energy levels. Produced primarily by the mitochondria, ATP is the main energy source for cells in your body, aiding many of your biological functions.4

Magnesium has been clinically shown to play an important role in supporting our muscle mass and muscle power at any age.5 Daily magnesium supplementation has been demonstrated to improve our physical performance in clinical trials.6

L-Carnitine also plays an important role in our energy production. L-Carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids into mitochondria so we can use them to produce energy from ATP. L-Carnitine also helps remove toxins from our mitochondria to prevent their accumulation, which can further benefit our muscle recovery.7

What lowers the production of CoQ10 in the body?

While CoQ10 is produced naturally in our bodies, research shows that our CoQ10 production tends to decline with age.8 Not to mention, statins, cholesterol-lowering drugs, can impair our CoQ10 production.9 Similarly, our L-Carnitine tissue levels have been also found to decline with age.3

Are you getting the recommended amount of Magnesium?

Meanwhile, most of us are not meeting the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for magnesium which is 400-420 mg/day for men and 310-320 mg/day for women.10 Many of us may need magnesium intakes higher than the RDA for optimal health since commonly consumed substances like caffeine, sugar and alcohol, as well as stress, can deplete magnesium.

The Takeaway

Supplementing with high-quality Doctor’s Best CoQ10, L-Carnitine and Magnesium can help boost your ATP production to support recovery during physical activity. These 3 supplements work together by giving your body more energy, and thus improving your workout performance.

Only Doctor’s Best offers the combination of Coenzyme Q10, L-Carnitine Fumarate and buffered Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate to support your energy and exercise performance.
