Coenzyme Q10

  • Culture Enzymes Minerals & Vitamins

Coenzyme Q10 is also known as ubiquinone (the name "ubiquinone" comes from the word "ubiquitous”), because it is present in virtually every cell of the human body. CoQ10 is found in highest concentrations in organs with high energy requirements, such as the heart, liver, and kidneys.

In terms of heart health, it has been extensively studied and may improve heart function, lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, and reduce blood pressure. Additionally, CoQ10 supplementation has been associated with potential benefits in migraine prevention. CoQ10 plays a crucial role in energy production, making it beneficial for individuals with certain medical conditions or those taking medications that deplete CoQ10 levels. Its antioxidant properties contribute to cell protection against oxidative damage and may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Moreover, CoQ10 supplementation has been proposed as a possible remedy for statin-induced muscle pain, as it replenishes CoQ10 levels in the muscles.
