Coenzyme Q10 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. Coenzyme Q10 is in fact one of the most important and modifiable factors in the production of ATP (cellular energy) in the mitochondria. Mitochondrial dysfunction and Coenzyme Q10 deficiencies have been implicated in many conditions such as fatigue, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular problems, neurodegenerative diseases and more.
Coenzyme Q10 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 Coenzyme Q10to patients on standard heart medications for the last four decades, as statin medications are known to reduce Coenzyme Q10 levels in the body.
The aging and elderly would greatly benefit from adding Coenzyme Q10 to their diet. Those dealing with cardiovascular issues or taking statin medications should speak to their doctor about supplementing with Coenzyme Q10. Athletes or those dealing with fatigue would also benefit from Coenzyme Q10 to boost energy levels.
