CoEnzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat-soluble vitamin-like substance found in all cell membranes of the body. It is vital to assist the production of energy by allowing the mitochondria to convert digested food within the cell.
Although CoQ10 is found naturally in the human body, especially in heart and liver cells, low levels of CoQ10 have been found in a wide variety of animal and human subjects during clinical studies. It is believed that as we get older our ability to produce CoQ10 decreases.
CoQ10 works as an antioxidant. An antioxidant protects cells from chemicals known as free radicals (which can damage important parts of cells). Because of its antioxidant properties, CoQ10 is widely recognized for its potential impact on heart health. Health Functions:
