(Another name is ubiquinone)
Coenzyme Q10 is a antioxidant involved in the production of energy in the cells. It is sometimes called ubiquinone from the word ubiquitous, because it is found in cells throughout the body. Levels of CoQ10 decrease as a person ages, a fact that leads some nutritionists to speculate that supplementation might slow down the aging process. In Japan, CoQ10 is used extensively to reduce the risk of a heart attack, lowers blood pressure, treats congestive heart failure, and boost the immune system. Some research suggests that supplements are useful in treating angina and may help prevent heart damage after surgery. When there is a deficiency, the cell can not function effectively, and the rate at which the muscle cells work as adversely affected.
There is a caution: CoQ10 is fat soluble and may be toxic in high doses. Do not take if pregnant or breast feeding. If you have heart disease, consult your doctor before taking supplements. Check labels carefully, because all products offer CoQ10 in its purest form.
