What is CoQ10?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), also known as ubiquinone, is produced by the body and is used for energy production.
In other words, it is a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant responsible for an important part of your body's natural energy.
How does it work?
CoQ10 as an antioxidant, fights damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Free radicals can cause all kinds of cellular damage and interfere with DNA. It is believed that free radicals can contribute to a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants, like CoQ10, can neutralize free radicals and may help to prevent some of the damage they cause.
The ability of CoQ10 to assist with heart related conditions, may be due to its ability to improve energy production and prevent blood clot formation.
