Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring antioxidant manufactured in our body and coenzymes support enzymes in their own unique chemical functions. CoQ10, is vitally important on the cellular level of our systems in the production of energy needed for metabolism. CoQ10 is found in every cell within the body and at higher levels in organs that require more energy, such as the liver, kidneys, and heart. CoQ10 was discovered by Dr. Fred Crane in 1957 and reportedly, after the age of 30, our levels start to decline. If these levels reach a deficiency level of 25%, health problems can arise and existing problems, such as heart disease, fatigue, and immune issues, may increase.
Dr. Andrew Weil, trained at Harvard University, considers CoQ10 to be one the four most important supplements needed in a daily diet. According to Dr. Weil, this important nutrient is not only utilized in the production of energy within the cell, but also protects the cell through its antioxidant properties. Studies have suggested that CoQ10 may contribute to the healthy operation of heart muscles, inhibit the oxidation of LDL and lessen the danger of vascular rupture due to the accumulation of plaque.
