CoQ10’s Potential Capabilities for Your Health

CoQ10, short for coenzyme Q10, is an antioxidant naturally produced by the body6 and found in your mitochondria.7 There are two forms of CoQ10: ubiquinone8 and ubiquinol, CoQ10's reduced form that's considered a far more effective alternative because it's eight times better absorbed.9 CoQ10 is crucial for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which aids in providing energy for your body's cells.10 In his book, "The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology," cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra notes that your body, because of reductase enzymes, can convert CoQ10 into ubiquinol from the foods and supplements you eat and take.11 However, as you age your body produces less CoQ10.12 At this point, CoQ10 supplements may be vital to help optimize your body's levels and alleviate certain conditions. You can find CoQ10 in capsule, tablet and IV forms.13 It's also used as an ingredient in skincare products.
