Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like nutrient central to energy production at the cellular level, essential for generating metabolic energy in the form of ATP. CoQ10 is also a versatile antioxidant, stabilizing cell membranes (helping to protect them from free radical damage) and contributing to their fluidity. Coenzyme Q10 levels decrease with age, a factor that may actually contribute to the aging process. Since food content of CoQ10 can be very low, many healthcare providers recommend supplementing with Coenzyme Q10. Enhances cardiovascular health supports Endothelial Function. Due to the extraordinary energy requirements of our hardworking heart, the highest concentration of CoQ10 is found in heart muscle tissue. Coenzyme Q10 is known to support the heart through mitochondrial bioenergetics, the process of cellular energy transformation. On top of this, CoQ10 helps to promote overall cardiovascular health by confronting oxidative stress in heart and endothelial (blood vessel wall) cells. In terms of bioenergetics, CoQ10 supplementation acts to preserve energy turnover in mitochondria—our cellular powerhouses—by keeping ATP synthesis at optimal levels. 5 Maintenance of normal energy utilization and supply is crucial for maintaining the cell’s ideal biochemical state. Based on results from clinical studies, researchers have concluded that some segments of the population can achieve an increase in needed ATP production in addition to other benefits from CoQ10 supplementation. Also in the cardiovascular realm, there has been longstanding interest in the use of Coenzyme Q10 supplementation to work against the oxidative stress that takes a toll on circulating blood lipids. In addition to reacting directly with peroxyl radicals, CoQ10 indirectly helps quench radicals by regenerating the active form of vitamin E. This type of antioxidant activity is key to enhancing the structural integrity of lipids and supporting healthy blood vessels and circulation.
