Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is also known as “ubiquinone” or “ubidecarenone,” but most commonly as CoQ10. This substance is an essential component of mitochondria, the energy producing unit of our body cells. Every bodily process — including all immune system responses — requires CoQ10.
The body manufactures CoQ10, but many people don’t produce it very efficiently due to the highly complicated biochemical process involved.* The quantity of CoQ10 obtained from dietary sources is often not enough.
How can CoQ10 supplementation help individuals?
CoQ10 is a necessary component of the energy producing process of every cell.* No other substance can be substituted for it and without it, there literally is no life. In order for the body to produce an immune system response, a constant supply of energy is required, and to produce this energy, a continuous and adequate amount of CoQ10 must be present.*
CoQ10 also has very strong antioxidant activity, which protects against free radical damage.* Simply defined, a free radical is a highly reactive molecule that can bind and damage (or destroy) body cells. Oxidative free radical damage is what makes us age. Nutrients with antioxidant activity like CoQ10 can help neutralize free radicals.* CoQ10 works synergistically with other nutrients with antioxidant activity, such as vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene.
