Coenzyme Q10 promotes neurological, cognitive, immune and cardiac health, including supporting healthy blood pressure levels. It is also a powerful antioxidant. Coenzyme Q10 is one of the best researched dietary supplements in the world.
Humans make Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in the body, but levels decrease with age and with lifestyle choices that compromise nutrition status. The best food sources of CoQ10 are organ meats, foods not commonly consumed today. Supplementation with CoQ10 supports overall health and immune function. Research has shown that supplementation improves levels of CoQ10 in the body, and levels decline when supplementation stops.
CoQ10 improves the body’s ability to produce cellular energy (cellular respiration) in the heart of energy production; the mitochondria. As an antioxidant, CoQ10 also helps combat free radicals in the body.
