Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like compound also called ubiquinone. It is an antioxidant that is made in the human body and is required for basic cell function. An essential component of all cells, it is involved in the production of Adenoine triphohosphate (ATP), which is used as a source of energy by the body’s metabolic processes. CoQ10 levels decrease with age and may be low in people with cancer, certain genetic disorders, diabetes, heart conditions, HIV/AIDS, muscular dystrophies and Parkinson’s disease. It also promotes physical energy and stamina and fights free-radical damage throughout the body, which promotes cellular health.
