What is CoQ10 and what role does it play?

Posted by sorcha o connor on

You may have heard of CoQ10 and wondered what all the fuss was about. In this blog post, we explain what CoQ10 is, how it works and the potential benefits it can offer your health.


What is CoQ10?

CoQ10 is a vital nutrient that occurs naturally in our bodies. It is found in every cell throughout the body, with the highest levels of CoQ10 being found where energy is needed the most, such as the heart, kidneys, lungs and liver.

As we get older, our bodies produce less CoQ10 and certain medical conditions can also reduce the levels in our body.

The good news is we can increase our intake of CoQ10 through certain foods, such as organ meat (like liver and kidneys), oily fish, whole grains and through supplementation.


What role does CoQ10 play in the body?

CoQ10 plays a number of roles in the body. It is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells and fights against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

It is also vital for the growth and maintenance of cells and is important for metabolism.

CoQ10 is well recognised for the role it plays in supporting your energy. It is needed to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which helps energy transfer within our cells.  

When the body’s store of CoQ10 is depleted, the production of ATP decreases. Cells are also more prone to the destructive effects of free radicals and oxidative stress.


The benefits of CoQ10

Optimum levels of CoQ10 in the body are thought to provide a range of health benefits.
