CoQ10 is also known as ubiquinone, and is a vitamin-like substance found within the mitochondria of every cell in the human body. It is the mitochondria that are responsible for extracting approximately 50% of the total energy from the food we eat. It is therefore not surprising to find the highest concentrations of CoQ10 in those organs, which have the highest energy requirements such as the heart muscle and liver, and in those tissues that regenerate quickly such as the gums. A lack of CoQ10 has been associated with periodontal (gum) disease. Similarly it has been shown that heart patients and the obese tend to have low CoQ10 levels.

Whilst CoQ10 can be made in the body, production declines as we age. In fact, a lack of energy in older people may, in part, be connected with lower CoQ10 production in the body. It has also been shown that cholesterol lowering drugs, called statins, reduce Co-Q10 levels in the body, so people taking statins are increasingly recommended to take a Co-Q10 supplement.

We use natural CoQ10, the form used in most studies and we present it dissolved in vegetable oil to aid absorption.

Additional Information

Pretreatment with coenzyme Q10 improved ovarian response and embryo quality in low-prognosis young women with a decreased ovarian reserve in a randomized controlled trial. The dosage regime was 200 mg three times a day for 60 days. Among the patients in CoQ10 group who underwent oocyte retrieval, there was a significantly lower number of women who did not achieve embryo transfer because of failure to retrieve oocytes or due to the absence of useable embryos.CoQ10 is also known as ubiquinone, and is a vitamin-like substance found within the mitochondria of every cell in the human body.
