Coenzymes are substances that facilitate the activities of enzymes. One particular coenzyme, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), could play an important role in the production of energy throughout the body.*
Also called ubiquinone, it is useful component of cells and is important for mitochondrial energy production in the body - think of mitochondria as energy engines on a cellular level. CoQ10 could be a major component of ATP production in the body by supporting the conversion of our food to fuel.* It is estimated that as much as 95% of the total energy created within the body comes from mitochondria, so CoQ10 is definitely a supplement to keep in mind.* The heart and liver contain the most Coenzyme Q10.
Many also believe CoQ10 to exhibit antioxidant-like properties, scouring our bodies and fighting those free radicals.*
