Using CoQ10 to Maintain a Healthy Heart

CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is a vitamin-like compound also called ubiquinone. CoQ10 is produced in our body to support cellular energy production and healthy cardiovascular function. CoQ10 is an essential cofactor in the production of cellular energy (ATP) found in most cells in the body, and at especially higher levels in the heart, brain, and muscle tissues. It is critical in the production of bioenergy and the quenching of free radicals. CoQ10 levels typically fall with age and supplemental CoQ10 can restore serum and tissue stores of this important coenzyme.

CoQ10 is also an antioxidant which provides protective effects against oxidation by free radicals.It is naturally present in small amounts in a wide variety of foods but is particularly high in organ meats such as heart, liver and kidney, as well as beef, soy oil, sardines, mackerel, and peanuts. To put dietary CoQ10 intake into perspective, one pound of sardines, two pounds of beef, or two and one half pounds of peanuts, provide 30 mg of CoQ10.

CoQ10 is synthesized in all bodily tissues and in healthy individuals normal levels are maintained by CoQ10 intake in foods and by the body’s synthesis of CoQ10.

CoQ10 has no known toxicity or side effects.
