Coenzyme Q10, Total

Our Price:

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like compound that is made naturally in the body. The body uses Coenzyme Q10 to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), needed for energy production and cell growth. CoQ10 is also a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage that could potentially lead to cancer. Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in food, with highest concentrations in organs such as the brain, heart, liver, and kidney.

Coenzyme Q10 levels are reported to decrease with age and chronic diseases such as heart disease, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease, cancer, diabetes, and AIDS decrease Coenzyme Q10 levels. Some statins, beta blockers, and blood pressure drugs also lower Coenzyme Q10 levels.

Coenzyme Q10 is used as a treatment for numerous conditions but remains controversial and continues to be debated. Nonetheless, Coenzyme Q10 continues to develop a reputation as a miracle vitamin as it is currently being recommended and studied as potential treatment for cardiac, neurologic, oncologic, and immunologic disorders.
