What is CoQ10
CoQ10, or coenzyme Q10, is a popular supplement due to the various health conditions it
can assist with. It is also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone, coenzyme Q. It is a natural
enzyme produced by the body. It is part of the electron transport chain, used for aerobic
cellular respiration. A majority of the body’s energy comes from this cellular respiration
– about 95%. The organs that require the most energy such as the heart, kidney and liver
therefore have the highest levels of this coenzyme.
What makes CoQ10 unique is that it can exist in an oxidized form for the functions of the
electron transport chain and completely reduced in form for an antioxidant. (Oxidation is
gain of oxygen, reduction is loss of oxygen from the CoQ10 molecule).
There are many reasons that a person can be deficient in this enzyme, due to metabolic or
mitochondrial disorders or because of poor dietary intake. Therefore a health supplement
of CoQ10 can provide a number of benefits to the body.
