CoEnzyme Q 10 (CoQ10) is a fat-soluble vitamin-like substance found in all cell membranes of the body. It is vital to assist the production of energy by allowing the mitochondria to convert digested food within the cell.
Although CoQ10 is found naturally in the human body, especially in heart and liver cells, low levels of CoQ10 have been found in a wide variety of animal and human subjects during clinical studies. It is believed that as we get older our ability to produce CoQ10 decreases.
CoQ10 works as an antioxidant. An antioxidant protects cells from chemicals known as free radicals (which can damage important parts of cells). Because of its antioxidant properties, CoQ10 is widely recognized for its potential impact on heart health.
CoQ10, also called ubiquinone, is present in almost all cells, where it is necessary for mitochondrial energy production. The body’s highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in the heart, where constant chemical energy availability is imperative. In addition to its benefits for cardiac function through energy production, CoQ10 also acts as a powerful fat soluble antioxidant, providing protection against free radical attack of vascular structures and other tissues.

CoQ10 may reduce the anticoagulant effect of warfarin. In addition, CoQ10 may increase the effectiveness of certain blood pressure medication, including diltiazem, metoprolol, enalapril, and nitrate. Statin medications have been shown to decrease CoQ10 levels in the body and CoQ10 supplementation may be beneficial when taking these drugs.
