Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a nutrient found in every cell of the body. The human body produces CoQ10, and the mitochondria uses it to produce needed energy for cell growth and maintenance. CoQ10 also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful free radicals.
Coenzymes help enzymes work to digest food and perform other body processes, and help protect the heart and skeletal muscles. CoQ10 has been approved for use in heart failure in Japan since 1974
There is substantial evidence for the beneficial role of CoQ10 supplementation in heart failure. In addition to its basic function in cellular bioenergetics, CoQ10 has an important role as an antioxidant in maintaining cardiovascular health by way of protecting LDL from oxidation.
