CoQ10 occurs naturally in the mitochondria (energy centres) of every cell in your body. However, CoQ10 levels in our bodies often decrease with age.
Coenzyme Q10 is important for the contractility of the cardiac muscle.
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant and can therefore assist in protecting the body from the damaging effects of free radical damage.

Q1 What is CoQ10 (Co-Enzyme Q10) and why is it important?
A1 Co-Enzyme Q10, often just called CoQ10, is a fat-soluble
antioxidant that exists naturally in the mitochondria (energy
centres) of cells throughout your body. The word “co-enzyme”
means that it works with an enzyme to help create a particular
reaction in your body.
CoQ10 has powerful antioxidant properties, and is also a key
component in the process your body uses to create cellular
Q2 How does CoQ10 support energy production?
A2 Some cells in your body contain structures called
mitochondria, whose purpose is to create cellular energy.
These mitochondria use CoQ10 to produce adenosine
triphosphate (ATP) – the molecule that carries energy to the
places in the cell that will use it.
Effectively, ATP captures the chemical energy your body
produces when it breaks down the carbohydrates and fats in
which the energy was stored. ATP molecules then transport
that energy to wherever it is needed, fuelling cellular
processes like metabolic reactions and muscle movement.
For this reason, CoQ10 is sometimes described as “Nature’s
Q3 How does CoQ10 support cardiovascular system health?
A3 The more metabolically active any given cell is, the more
mitochondria it tends to contain, which in turn means the
more CoQ10 it will naturally use. The cells in your heart
muscle are among the most metabolically active in your body,
which may be why research shows a link between CoQ10 and
maintenance of heart health.1
And fi nally, CoQ10’s antioxidant properties may help to protect
cell membranes against damage from free radical molecules.
