PHOENIX--Nutrilearn.com introduced a new online education module focused on the ingredient coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), “Q-Facts”, developed in collaboration with Tishcon Corp. The product-specific course is available free to users at www.nutrilearn.com.

This comprehensive course answers many questions about CoQ10 including its history, the chemical nature, how the body synthesizes CoQ10, production questions, the body’s absorption of CoQ10, clinical conditions and health benefits associated with CoQ10, its bioavailability, good sources of CoQ10, the regulatory status and much more.
