Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in every cell of the body, concentrated in the mitochondria (energy factory of all cells) where it is involved in the production of cellular energy. Ninety five percent of all our bodyâ€™s energy requirements are converted with the aid of Coenzyme Q10.
During aging, Coenzyme Q10 levels in the body decline and oxidative damage accumulates. Heart, kidneys, liver, periodontal, skeletal muscles and brain, which are rich in Coenzyme Q10, are most affected.
Using drugs like cholesterol lowering agent (statins) can also cause a decrease in Coenzyme Q10 levels.
Benefits: Coenzyme Q10 helps maintain heart health and is needed for energy activation. Coenzyme Q10 assists in maintaining heart health, in particular heart muscle function, congestive heart failure, heart attack and other age-related degenerative heart diseases. Also may help reduce oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol. Coenzyme Q10 is indicated for activation of energy production. Decrease of Coenzyme Q10 levels may lead to inefficient cellular energy production causing one to feel weak and exhausted .
