What is CoQ10?
Formally known as coenzyme Q10, CoQ10 is a fat-soluble compound found in every cell of the body. Cells’ mitochondria (the powerhouses) use CoQ10 to produce energy. That’s why in large, hard-working organs, such as the heart, you’ll find the highest concentrations of CoQ10.
Interestingly enough, CoQ10 also functions as a powerful antioxidant.* Antioxidants help protect cells from free radicals, which are harmful compounds generated during normal body processes. Breathing and digesting can create free radicals, as well as exposure to environmental stimuli such as UV sunlight and cigarette smoke. By attacking healthy cells and damaging their membranes and DNA, free radicals compromise normal cell function.
The body does produce CoQ10 on its own, but levels decline with age. A steady decrease typically begins after age 30. Other factors, including genetics and cholesterol-lowering statins, can result in a CoQ10 deficiency if proper care is not taken.
