Coenzyme Q10Â® is a fat-soluble nutrient more commonly referred to as CoQ10Â®. CoQ10Â® is found in the mitochondria, the portion of the cell responsible for energy production. It also stabilizes cell membranes and functions as an antioxidant. Antioxidants scavenge free radicals (natural by-products in the body), which left unchecked may cause damage to the body.*
CoQ10Â® is a biologically active quinone found in every cell of the body. It is a cofactor in the electron transport chain, the biological pathway in cellular respiration from which ATP and most of the bodyâ€™s energy are derived. It also aids circulation and stimulates the immune system. *
CoQ10Â® is used extensively in Japan, Russia, Europe, and Canada to help those suffering from congestive heart failure (CHF). Studies documented that up to 70 percent of CHF patients experienced significant relief from symptoms related to CHF after taking CoQ10.*
CoQ10Â® may also help those struggling with some forms of cardiomyopathy. However, more studies are necessary before specific health benefits can be established.*
