CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is a nutrient that the body creates naturally, as well as being present in many of the everyday foods we eat such as fish, meat, fruit and vegetables. It is an antioxidant that is found in many major organs including the heart, liver and pancreas; the highest levels are found in the mitochondria.
As an antioxidant, CoQ10 helps with a number of essential bodily functions including enzyme health, cell growth and maintenance and regulating blood pressure. Over time, levels of CoQ10 decrease, which can then lead to health problems such as heart disease, fertility problems, migraines and poor skin health. This is why it is important to maintain CoQ10 levels.
