CoQ10 is a powerful, fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance found naturally in all forms of animal life. It is biosynthesized in the membranes of cells in humans and is vital in the production of energy. It is a power plant of the body that is found in most cells, with especially high concentration in the heart, an organ that requires high levels of energy for normal operation.
As an antioxidant, CoQ10 helps protect proteins and mitochondrial DNA from oxidative damage and, consequently, supports healthy heart, brain, and joints. Although the body can typically make the CoQ10 it needs for optimal health, several factors including, but not limited to, aging, use of certain medications (e.g. statins), and some disease states can affects CoQ10 levels in the body, making supplementation necessary.
