What is CoQ10 or CoEnzyme Q10?

CoQ10, also simply known as Q10 or Ubiquinol-10 is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance that occurs naturally in all human and animal cells. In particular, in the energy producing parts of the cells, the so called mitochondria. Coenzyme Q10 is involved in the making of a key molecule, adenosine triphosphate ( so called ATP production). ATP serves as an important part of the source of energy for all the cells in our body and is of great importance in a range of biological processes, including muscle contraction and the production of proteins in the body.

Coenzyme Q10 levels are highest in the first 20 years of our life. With advancing age, the levels of natural CoQ10 in the body decrease.

CoQ10, a powerful Antioxidant:

CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant. Antioxidants are substances that render free radicals harmless in the body. Free radicals occur naturally in the body, but environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoke, and air pollution) also contribute to the presence of these harmful particles.

Scientists believe that free radicals contribute to the aging process, and the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants, such as CoQ10 ( Ubiquinol), can neutralize free radicals and their effects and some of the damage they cause can thus be reduced or even prevented.

Coenzyme Q10 is related to vitamin K and vitamin E.

Coenzyme Q10 has been extensively studied, in particular in the interest of CoQ10 for the stimulation of the body's immune system and resistance against diseases and research of CoQ10 has shown that there is hardly any identifiable side effects of q10 in humans.
