RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA –Blue California, an ingredient manufacturer in Southern California, announced it has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for coenzyme Q10 processed by fermentation, a much sought-after ingredient in the dietary supplement industry.
CoQ10 plays a crucial role in producing energy in cells. It acts as a powerful antioxidant, meaning that it helps neutralize cell-damaging molecules called free radicals. Manufactured by all cells in the body, CoQ-10 is also found in small amounts in food, particularly meat and fish. CoQ-10 is an accepted treatment for cardiovascular disease in Japan, as well as Europe and Israel.
Cecilia McCollum, Blue California’s Executive Vice President states, “For the past two years Blue California’s goal has been to introduce a line of highly purified ingredients to the dietary supplement industry and we are proud of what we have been able to achieve so far. Coenzyme Q10 is a welcome addition to Blue California’s unique line of superior ingredients which already includes a water-soluble form of this ingredient, COQ10WS™ (10% and 20%).” Added McCollum, “As an ingredient manufacturer, we know that exceptional quality and value are absolutely necessary to build a successful product for the consumer and this new addition to our ingredient line meets these requirements.”
