Description

What is CoQ10?

CoQ10 is a so-called coenzyme that is in many ways similar to a vitamin (it is often called a “pseudo-vitamin” due to it being vital in the human body; its chemical structure is similar to that of both Vitamin K and Vitamin E). In fact, just about every single cell in our body has CoQ10 present in the mitochondria!

CoQ10 plays a supplemental role in cellular metabolism, where it is a requirement for energy transfer to take place. The energy cycle CoQ10 plays a key role in – aerobic respiration – normally generates around 95% of the energy used by our bodies and as such the highest levels of CoQ10 are generally found in organs with high energy requirements.* [13,1]

CoQ10 can be obtained from food, although the concentrations in which it is present are low. The average amount of CoQ10 obtained from food is only between 3 and 6 milligrams a day and comes primarily from meat, plant products usually have much lower levels of CoQ10 which might make it an interesting supplement for vegetarians as well. [14]

CoQ10 Benefits

CoQ10 is a potent cellular health supplement that has shown to exert a beneficial effect on the cognition, cardiovascular system and overall well-being.* [2,3,4,5,6,7,8]

During physical exercise CoQ10 can promote energy levels and physical performance.* This makes CoQ10 an attractive option for those serious about improving their workout performance! [9]

CoQ10 can also promote healthy mood and relaxtion, most likely due to its supplemental cognitive properties.* [10,11,12]

The wide range of health benefits CoQ10 conveys means it is definitely a worthwhile supplement: offering unique cellular health benefits, promoting healthy cognition, various exercise-related benefits, promoting relaxation and possibly a lot more.*

CoQ10 also combines very well with other cellular health supplements because it can increase their potency in the body.*
