Q10 is a coenzyme that occurs naturally in every cell of the human body and represents one of the body’s essential nutrients. This coenzyme plays a crucial role in the cell’s energy production in the mitochondria, and without coenzyme Q10, no cell of your body could produce ATP. ATP is the only direct source of energy that can be used by the cells of your body and without ATP virtually no bodyly process that needs energy is possible.
This ATP is produced in the mitochondria of your cells from nutrients you consume, using a process known as the respiratory chain. A lack of coenzyme Q10 thus results in a lack of energy on cellular level, which can severely affect your health and well-being. In the human body, coenzyme Q10 is found in the highest concentrations in organs that require the highest amounts of energy for their daily function. These organs include heart, liver, lungs and kidneys.
In addition, coenzyme Q10 has a variety of health benefits and may even promote fat loss and athletic performance. For optimal health, scientists recommend a daily intake of 30 to 200 mg coenzyme Q10, which is virtually impossible to obtain just by normal food. We use the maximum amount of 200 mg Q10 to ensure that you can fully profit from all the benefits this important coenzyme has to offer. In this context, it should be noted that during scientific studies coenzyme Q10 did not produce any undesirable side effects during long-term use at doses of 1200 to 3000 mg per day.
Coenzyme Q10 is one of the nutrients your body can produce itself when needed. This fact could lead to the premature conclusion that something like a coenzyme Q10 deficiency can not occur and therefore any supplementation would be pointless. Unfortunately, the reality is different. There are many factors that can affect the body's production of this vital coenzyme and / or greatly increase the need for coenzyme Q10. These include severe physical stress, alcohol and nicotine consumption, metabolic disorders, a low coenzyme Q10 intake through your diet, as well as certain medications, which include statins, other cholesterol-lowering drugs and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or painkillers.
In addition, there are a number of situations in which an additional coenzyme Q10 supplement can have positive effects on your health and well-being. There are statistics that assume that only 25% of the population shows an optimal coenzyme Q10 saturation, and most of these are likely to be children and adolescents whose bodies are still capable of producing large amounts of coenzyme Q10. However, with increasing age, your body’s own coenzyme Q10 production continues to decrease until your body is eventually no longer able to produce enough of this important nutrient.
In addition to its essential role in energy production of all cells of your body, Coenzyme Q10 acts as a very powerful antioxidant that can protect the body's organs, cells and DNA from the damaging effects of free radicals. Elevated levels of free radicals have been connected with the development of many diseases including cardiovascular diseases, degenerative brain diseases and cancer. In addition, many scientists believe that free radicals are the main trigger for cell aging and the aging process of your body, making antioxidants such as coenzyme Q10 an effective anti-aging ingredient that keeps your body young from the inside and can slow down skin aging.
Most well-known are the beneficial effects of a coenzyme Q10 supplementation on cardiovascular health. In many patients with cardiac problems or those who have already had a heart attack, unusually low levels of this important coenzyme have been detected. Studies conducted on people with heart failure have shown that coenzyme Q10 significantly improved their cardiac output and also improved their quality of life and their life expectancy. One study showed that coenzyme Q10 could reduce the death rate in patients with heart failure by 50%. In addition, there are studies indicating that coenzyme Q10 might lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels while improving blood vessel elasticity, which would lower the risk of heart attacks.
Coenzyme Q10 can reduce inflammation by inhibiting a substance called NF-kappaB that is produced by your body and is responsible for activating inflammatory processes. This can have positive effects on numerous diseases and the aging process, as well as improve the function of the immune system. In addition, coenzyme Q10 stimulates the production of antibodies and supports the activity of so-called killer cells of your immune system, which fight pathogens in your body. Even in the early stages of AIDS, coenzyme Q10 can improve the function of a weakened immune system. Other benefits of coenzyme Q10 include an improved fertility in men by an increased sperm motility, a slower progression of Parkinson's disease, and reduced symptoms of a muscle disorder known as fibromyalgia.
Scientific studies have shown that coenzyme Q10 can increase fat burning significantly. This is related to the body's brown adipose tissue, which is - unlike the white adipose tissue that makes up our unwanted fat deposits - highly metabolically active and plays an important role in the regulation of your body temperature at extreme low temperatures. Your brown adipose tissue is able to convert 100% of the energy supplied to heat and thereby increases your body temperature. This process burns many calories and increases the energy requirements of your body. In order to activate the brown adipose tissue, so-called uncoupling proteins (UPCs) are required, which decouple the ATP production from the combustion of nutrients in the mitochondria of your brown fat cells, so that 100% of the produced energy is converted into heat and thus "wasted". Coenzyme Q10 is able to activate these proteins and can thereby increase your calorie needs and your fat burning.
An interesting study from 2012 showed that a supplementation with coenzyme Q10 for 6 weeks significantly increased athletes' maximum performance compared to a placebo. This was attributed to an increase in the synthesis of ATP and creatine phosphate and an optimization of the cellular energy metabolism of the muscle cells, as well as an inhibition of ammonia production during intense muscular effort. The really interesting thing about this study is that it was done with high performance athletes who were preparing for the Olympics. Scientists believe that the observed increase in performance in untrained and recreational athletes could be even more pronounced. Because coenzyme Q10 acts as a potent antioxidant, it can neutralize the increased amounts of free radicals that are produced during intense exercise as a waste product of the muscle energy metabolism. This will significantly accelerate and improve your post-workout recovery.
