What is coenzyme Q10?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance similar to a vitamin. It is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules. CoQ10 is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods, but levels are particularly high in organ meats such as heart, liver, andkidney, as well as beef, soy oil, sardines, mackerel, and peanuts.
Coenzymes help enzymes work to digest food and perform other body processes, and they help protect the heart and skeletal muscles.
CoQ10 is available in the United States as a dietary supplement. It is also known as Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone, or ubidecarenone.

Co Enzyme Q 10 is one of the most intensely studied cardio-protective nutrients. It is shown to act as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals.* CoQ10 is essential for cell respiration, electron transfer, Adenosine Tri-phosphate (ATP) production and the control of oxidation reactions; as a result, it promotes normal cell growth.* This important co enzyme can energize the body because its primary function in cells is in generating energy by intensifying mitochondrial performance. The highest concentration of energy is found on the inner membrane of the mitochondrion, the cells energy source.
