CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is a vitamin-like nutrient that plays an essential role in the production of energy in the body and in particular the heart, helping to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Our natural levels of CoQ10 decline as we age, and with taking certain medications. To ensure that you have enough of this essential nutrient, it may be beneficial to increase intake of foods rich in CoQ10, or to take a CoQ10 supplement.
How it works
Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in the body and plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells. As such it is important for the health of virtually all human tissues and organs.The heart is one of the most active tissues in the body, and requires an adequate supply of CoQ10. CoQ10 assists in maintaining heart health, in particular heart muscle function. The body's ability to synthesise CoQ10 declines with age and with taking certain medications. CoQ10 also has strong anti-oxidant properties which can also be beneficial for skin health.
