Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is important in energy production as it is responsible for harvesting over 75% of the ATP energy from food. It can become depleted during periods of excessive energy demands. Levels of coenzyme Q10 are also significantly lower in women who use oral contraceptives, which may in turn increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, most cholesterol lowering drugs deplete coenzyme Q10.

In addition to being especially helpful for improving energy and heart function, studies have shown that coenzyme Q10 can:

  • Enhance immune function
  • Assist weight loss when dieting
  • Decrease the frequency of migraine headaches
  • Raise low sperm counts
  • Help slow Parkinson’s Disease
  • Improve exercise tolerance in sedentary people
  • Decrease allergies
