Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat-soluble vitamin-like nutrient that helps produce energy in all cells of the body. It does so by supporting the mitochondria the tiny power plants in each of the body’s cells. CoQ10 is in fact one of the most important and modifiable factors in the production of ATP (cellular energy) in the mitochondria. Mitochondrial dysfunction and CoQ10 deficiencies have been implicated in many conditions such as fatigue fibromyalgia cardiovascular problems neurodegenerative diseases and more.
CoQ10 is also noted for its powerful antioxidant activity and even “recharges” other antioxidants by keeping them in their reduced active states. Doctors have been recommending CoQ10 to patients on standard heart medications for the last four decades as statin medications are known to reduce CoQ10 levels in the body.
The aging and elderly would greatly benefit from adding CoQ10 to their diet. Those dealing with cardiovascular issues or taking statin medications should speak to their doctor about supplementing with CoQ10. Athletes or those dealing with fatigue would also benefit from CoQ10 to boost energy levels.
