Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant and nutrient that your body produces naturally. It protects cells from damage and plays an important part in the metabolism where food is converted to energy. Although CoQ10 plays a key role in the body, the whole-body content of CoQ10 is only about 500-1500 mg and its levels decreases with growing age.
Organs with the highest energy requirements such as the heart, liver, and kidney have the highest CoQ10 concentrations and the deficiency of CoQ10 leads to the dysfunction of the respiratory chain, growth in cancer cells and decreased quality of sperms and eggs.
Primary dietary sources of CoQ10 include oily fish, organ meats and whole grains, but the amount found in these sources isn’t enough to significantly increase CoQ10 levels in your body and much lower to that found in the supplements. There is evidence that adding more in the form of CoQ10 supplements may be beneficial.
