Coenzyme Q10 Info

Coenzyme Q10 is often abbreviated to CoQ10 and is also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone and vitamin Q. Discovered in 1957, CoQ10 is a naturally occurring compound in our bodies that resembles the antioxidant vitamin E in its action, but with even more potential. Coenzyme Q10 is present in every cell of the body, predominantly in the mitochondria of each cell. As heart and liver cells have relatively more mitochondria, these organs contain more CoQ10 than other body tissues.

CoQ10 supplements come in two forms: Ubiquinol, the active antioxidant form or Ubiquinone, which our bodies must convert into ubiquinol. The CoQ10 circulating in the blood is mostly in the ubiquinol form (around 90% in people with good health).

Coenzyme Q10 Benefits

Clinical research has shown that CoQ10 plays a major role in promoting heart health, increasing energy levels, enhancing the immune system, supporting healthy gums, providing antioxidant activity and may even decrease some of the side effects associated with certain prescription drugs. Periodontal gum disease, allergies, bronchial asthma, chronic microbial infections and low sperm motility are all said to benefit from supplementation with coenzyme Q10.

CoQ10 supplementation has also been shown to beneficially support women with breast cancer.

CoQ10 is also showing promise as potential support for those with neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson, ALS and Alzheimer disease.

Coenzyme Q10 Side Effects

Consult a health professional before taking CoQ10 if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Congestive heart failure patients who are taking Coenzyme Q10 should not discontinue taking CoQ10 supplements unless under the supervision of a doctor.

Coenzyme Q10 should not be taken with Warfarin without the advice of a health professional.

Product Reviews

  • More Energy

    Took this for a month and found I thought I had more energy. Am on the month off now and will go back on soon. If you take too many things at once it is hard to decide what is giving you the benefit. I prefer month on and month off so my body just gets a boost and does the work itself when I am not taking it.

  • This product really works!

    The Go Healthy Co-Q10 was recommended by my pharmacist, and it certainly helps support my system while I'm taking statins.

  • Good product

    My husband and myself have been using this product for awhile now. I have nerve damage caused by two bouts of breast cancer and the treatment it entailed, the pain specialist I went to recommended coenzyme Q10 along with other medication. I find it has made a difference to the pain I have and I like the flaxseed oil, vitamin E combination with it
