Also referred to as ubiquinone, CoQ10 is the spark that provides energy production to every cell in your body including your heart which consumes more energy than any other organ. You get some coenzyme Q10 from the food you consume but most of it is produced naturally by your body. But, before conventional CoQ10 can benefit your body, it needs to be converted by your body into a more advanced form referred to as Ubiquinol.

Ubiquinol is the most reduced version of ubiquinone. Although they’re of the same molecule, after CoQ10 is reduced, it takes on two more electrons and turns into ubiquinol. This conversion occurs millions of times per second inside the mitochondria where energy is produced. Unfortunately, as you age, your bodies’ ability to convert ubiquinone into ubiquinol declines, especially from the age of 30 years. What’s more is that ubiquinol can be absorbed by your body up to eight times faster than ubiquinone.This explains why most adults are opting for the more advanced form of CoQ10.

Other Health Benefits of Ubiquinol

  • Apart from converting food into energy, ubiquinol has other health benefits. For starters, it is a lipid-soluble antioxidant. This means that it can work in the lipid parts of your body including cell membranes. This is one of very few fat-soluble antioxidants.
  • Ubiquinol is the only lipid-soluble antioxidant that is generated within your body without the need of ingesting it from food.
  • Because ubiquinol helps in the production of energy in all cells, anti-aging experts believe optimizing the mitochondria is a powerful strategy to extend your life.

Why Ubiquinol is Better than Ubiquinone
The most important organs in your body including the heart and brain need higher amounts of cellular energy for them to function at optimal levels. For your body to make this energy, it needs CoQ10 in its most reduced form (ubiquinol). Inside the mitochondria, ubiquinol uses the additional two electrons to help convert food to a fuel commonly referred to as ATP.

Unlike ubiquinone, ubiquinol is a powerful antioxidant due to its two extra electrons. These electrons are important because they help in neutralizing free radicals that are produced by the mitochondria. Free radicals are harmful to your body because they are always looking to steal more electrons in your body from proteins, DNA, and lipids. Removing electrons from a cell oxidizes molecules and eventually cause damage to your health. The additional two electrons in ubiquinol are used to neutralize free radicals that would otherwise cause metabolic problems. This means ubiquinol is the only form of CoQ10 that can help protect the mitochondria from free radicals.

Where can you Find Ubiquinol?
You can find small amounts of ubiquinol in the foods you eat like avocados. Unfortunately, you would have to eat over 50 avocados a day to get 100mg of ubiquinol which is the daily recommended amount. However, due to the insufficient dietary CoQ10 intake, you can find this vital nutrient in supplements like Energize by New Earth.

Whether you need additional support for a healthy heart—or you just want to stay healthy as you age, ubiquinol will help promote heart health and healthy energy levels in your body. Keep in mind that over 90 percent of your body’s cellular energy production requires ubiquinol.

Algae are some of the oldest and most simple organisms on our beautiful planet, existing everywhere there is nutrient-rich water and sunlight. There are over 300,000 different algae strains, but only a handful are utilized for commercial purposes to be used around the globe by health-conscious individuals for a variety of dietary needs.

At the bottom of the food chain, algae have been the basis for the renewal of life on earth for many years. They are, quite simply, the some of the most important organisms on the planet. Here at New Earth, our focus is on high-quality Wild Microalgae – which has the scientific name Aphanizomenon flos-aquae – or more simply – AFA.

Native to Klamath Lake in the high desert region of Southern Oregon, AFA is a species of blue-green microalgae, chock full of vital nutrients including pigments, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids and many other phytonutrients, all of which provide a wide range of health benefits.

Nestled in the Cascade Mountain Range at an elevation of 4,100 feet, anchored in the porous volcanic earth, with an average depth of 8 feet and nearly 300 days of sunshine a year, Klamath Lake enjoys a unique ecosystem. At more than 20 miles long and 8 miles wide, the lake is one of the largest natural freshwater lakes west of the Mississippi River.

The secret of the lake’s nutritional potency lies in the volcanic rock that gently filters water through its 35 feet of mineral-rich sediment. Add to that the network of pristine, snow-fed mountain tributaries and springs that feed the lake and you have the ideal home for Wild Microalgae, Earth’s original superfood.

The life cycle of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae is like any other. There is new life, growth, decline and then the birth of a new generation.

In the winter AFA settles in the sediments at the bottom of Klamath Lake in the form of specialized cells called akinetes.

Akinetes are regenerative cells that spawn a new generation of AFA every spring. AFA obtains its energy through photosynthesis, so in late spring these akinetes begin to germinate in response to an increase in water temperature and sunlight. The microscopic cells begin to multiply, forming long, thin filaments. The filaments then join together to form colonies that are visible to the naked eye. These AFA colonies look like small blades of grass floating in the water.

As the conditions become optimal for growth, AFA enters into an exponential growth phase. This is the summer bloom. It is at this time that AFA is so abundant in Klamath Lake, the harvest season begins.

One of AFA’s secret weapons is the ability to “fix” nitrogen. Specialized cells called heterocysts convert atmospheric nitrogen – that is dissolved in the lake water – into a usable form of nitrogen. Nitrogen is a limiting nutrient for the growth of plants, and because AFA makes it’s own, it out-competes all other algae and dominates the lake’s microalgal ecosystem.

The summer harvest generally lasts only for a few weeks in July. When the lake water becomes too warm to support AFA growth in August, the bloom disperses.

In September, as the conditions are again optimal for growth, there is another AFA bloom and harvest.

In late fall, as the waters cool and there are fewer hours of sunlight, AFA begins to decline. AFA senses that winter is coming and begins to produce akinete cells for the following spring. The akinetes settle into the sediment at the bottom of the lake where they will remain throughout the winter. And when the lake begins to warm the following spring, the cycle of life for AFA begins again.

Did you know that the human body is composed of 16 percent protein? Proteins play an important part in most biological processes. When you ingest proteins, your body breaks them apart into individual amino acids. The proteins in your body contain 20 different amino acids and each has its unique chemical properties that determine its biological role. A large proportion of body cells, tissues and muscles are made up of amino acids, which means that they carry out many body functions, such as healing wounds and repairing tissues, especially in the bones, muscles, skin, hair, and removal of wastes produced during metabolism.
Since amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, they are linked to almost all life processes, but they also act as precursors in other physiological processes. These processes include signal transduction, intermediary metabolism (the connection between carbohydrates and lipids), and neurotransmission.

Algae as a Viable Source of Protein

Most people tend to think that algae are things only viewed through microscopes during 4th grade, but algae are fascinating as they use simple components of carbon dioxide, mineral water, and sunlight to sustain life and reproduce at incredible rates. Algae are also a good source of plant-based protein. While Spirulina has been the most common source of food protein for centuries, New Earth has discovered that the wild microalgae, or AFA (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) is the most powerful nourishing food protein on the planet with a wide variety of plant-based nutrients, essential fatty acids, minerals and several micronutrients.

Benefits of AFA Microalgae

  • It contains all 20 natural amino acids that enhance brain activity
  • Boosts the body’s immune system
  • Supports biomodulation
  • Promotes the absorption and assimilation of food nutrients
  • Provides a vegan source of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids
  • Helps the body to maintain healthy cholesterol levels
  • Offers an affordable and daily source of important micronutrients

Other Health Benefits of Amino Acids

While some amino acids can be produced by your body, others, commonly known as essential amino acids, can only be obtained through food or protein supplements. Contrary to common belief, amino acid supplements aren’t only meant for athletes. According to recent research, it was discovered that amino acids produce enzymes that are involved in concentration, mood, sleep and other physiological phenomena.

Retention of muscle mass
Amino acids help in the muscle-building process when they are used together with resistance exercise; however, research has also indicated that amino acids can benefit muscles that aren’t being trained. The research proved that the supplementation of the amino acid leucine helped in the prevention of muscle breakdown in purposely immobilized muscles. According to the researchers, leucine reduced the expressions of genes that cause the breakdown of muscles during periods of inactivity.

Abdominal fat loss
Most fat loss supplements contain stimulants and other elements that claim to increase metabolism; however, amino acid supplements support fat loss. According to a recent study, the use of a soy amino acid by post-menopausal women for a period of three months reduced the growth of abdominal fat. A combination of an amino acid and a low-calorie diet can provide you with superior fat loss than dieting alone.

Increased mental focus
The essential amino acid L-tryptophan in amino acid supplements can help improve short-term memory and processing abilities.

The algae from Upper Klamath Lake in Southern Oregon has been present for ages and is said to have survived the last ice age. New Earth has developed special equipment to harvest, process and package this wild superfood.
