Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supports heart health and metabolic function.
- Supports healthy heart function
- Supports cellular ATP energy production
- Assists metabolic function
- Antioxidant for the maintenance of good health
Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10 or ubiquinone, is found in all our cell and mitochondrial membranes, playing quite a vital role in all functions occurring in the body. Coenzymes are helper molecules, which assist enzymes to do their job, allowing all sorts of reaction to move forward. The Q and 10 parts refer to extra pieces of their molecular structure that show its differences from other coenzymes. CoQ10 resembles a fat-soluble vitamin. We make it internally, and also get it from our diet.
Coenzyme Q10 is vital for energy production in the mitochondria of the cell. Organs that require the most energy have the highest concentrations of CoQ10, and include the heart, liver and kidneys. (Heart health is the area it is most studied in supporting.) It assists in neurotransmitter synthesis (GABA, dopamine, serotonin etc.), so it is important for cognitive and mood support. As a powerful antioxidant, coenzyme Q10 has the ability to benefit all areas of the body. It’s a whole-body supportive molecule, for some of those big picture issues like energy and stamina, and cardiovascular and cognitive health. Sounds like a big deal!
But we can get deficient in this vital molecule. We can get low from two directions - a reduced amount produced internally, or an increased need. Certain genetic mutations can affect CoQ10 production. It also naturally decreases with age, when we start becoming aware of our cardiovascular and cognitive health. CoQ10 appears to be lower in people with certain conditions such as heart disease. Consider regular CoQ10 supplementation to maintain healthy CoQ10 levels as you age or your energy levels drop.
