Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) is a vitamin-like substance found throughout the body, but especially in the heart, liver, kidney, and pancreas.
Many people use coenzyme Q-10 for treating heart and blood vessel conditions such as congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain (angina), high blood pressure, and heart problems linked to certain cancer drugs .
It is also used for diabetes, gum disease (both taken by mouth and applied directly to the gums), breast cancer, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, increasing exercise tolerance, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and Lyme disease .
Some people think coenzyme Q-10 will treat hair loss related to taking warfarin (Coumadin), a medication used to slow blood clotting .
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a natural energy producing nutrient involved in a wide range of body systems. CoQ10 is located in the mitochondria, tiny power plants found in every cell in the body, and effectively supports their energy producing pathways to help fuel the body’s daily activity .
A potent antioxidant, CoQ10 also defends cells against harmful free radicals .
Some people have also used coenzyme Q-10 for strengthening the immune systems of people with HIV/AIDS, male infertility, migraine headache, and counteracting muscle pain sometimes caused by a group of cholesterol-lowering medications called “statins.”
CoQ10 plays an important role in generating cellular energy and works inside a cell’s mitochondria to provide the supplies necessary for energy production .
CoQ10 is an electron/proton carrier that helps the mitochondria to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body’s energy source. This is vitally important because mitochondria must continually generate ATP to support every cell in the body .
CoQ10 is found in high amounts in the cells of the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas. Oral supplementation with CoQ10 helps maintain CoQ10 stores in these crucial cells and tissues .
Coenzyme Q-10 is an important vitamin-like substance required for the proper function of many organs and chemical reactions in the body .
It helps provide energy to cells. Coenzyme Q-10 also seems to have antioxidant activity .
People with certain diseases, such as congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, periodontal disease, Parkinson’s disease, certain muscular diseases, and AIDS, might have lower levels of coenzyme Q-10 .
Several small trials have found CoQ10 may be helpful for certain types of cardiomyopathy .
Lower levels of CoQ10 have also been observed in people with Parkinson’s disease .
Preliminary research has found that increasing CoQ10 may increase levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is thought to be lowered in people with Parkinson’s disease .
It has also been suggested that CoQ10 might protect brain cells from damage by free radicals
