Description

Because it is a vitamin-like substance located in virtually every cell, Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q-10) is also known as ubiquinone, from “ubiquitous”, to signify its widespread distribution in the human body, and “quinone”, a chemical structure with a unique ability to be oxidized and reduced. Coenzyme Q10 is a compound found naturally in the energy-producing center of the cell known as the mitochondria. Co-Q-10 is involved in making an important molecule known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP serves as the cell’s major energy source and drives a number of biological processes, including muscle contraction and the production of protein. Co-Q-10 also works as an anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidants are substances that scavenge free radicals, damaging compounds in the body that alter cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Free radicals occur naturally in the body, but environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoking, and air pollution) can also increase the number of these damaging particles. Scientists believe free radicals contribute to the aging process, as well as the development of a number of health problems. Anti-oxidants can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. Healthy humans who consume a well-balanced diet have the ability to synthesize Coenzyme Q10. Unhealthy individuals and those on an inadequate diet may not synthesize Co-Q-10 in sufficient quantities. Thus, the biosynthesis of Coenzyme Q10 in the human body requires a good diet, one that is high in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrient factors.
 

Nutriceutical Properties

Co-Q-10 boosts production of energy in the cell, provides anti-oxidant protection and inhibits blood clot formation. Co-Q-10 supplementation is important for maintaining heart health. Taking Co-Q-10 supplements can correct the deficiency caused by statin medications without affecting the medication’s positive effects on cholesterol levels, and may decrease the muscle pain associated with statin treatment.
