Coenzyme Q10

A natural substance found in the human body that helps convert food into energy is called Coenzyme Q10. It is one of the most powerful substances in the human body that is necessary for maintaining all biological processes in the body.

This natural substance participates in the production of energy in every cell of our body, and it acts to catalyze the process of converting food into energy, which occurs in the mitochondria of cells.

It is not possible to live without Coenzyme Q10 because if this nutrient is lacking in the body, it cannot function. Lack of this nutrient is compounded by age, stress, chronic illnesses, poor nutrition, infections and some medications. Coenzyme Q10 has the greatest need of the heart.


Coenzyme Q10 has been successfully used as an adjunct to treatment for many cardiovascular diseases such as heart failure, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, ischemia, arrhythmia, angina, and for the prevention of stroke and heart attack.

This natural substance prevents oxidation of LDL and increases the elasticity of blood vessels. LDL causes plaque buildup on the walls of blood vessels, and plaque buildup results in atherosclerosis which is a major cause of high blood pressure, kidney problems, heart and stroke, and angina.

When a person suffers from gum disease, Coenzyme Q10 is missing, which is why the topical application of Coenzyme Q10 is used because it is effective in paradentosis and gingivitis.


Coenzyme Q10 also has a significant effect on chronic fatigue, weight loss, sperm quality improvement, allergies, Alzheimer's disease and migraines. It is also a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals that increase the risk of many diseases, cause premature aging and destroy healthy cells.

The lack of Coenzyme Q10

If the body lacks Coenzyme Q10, the human muscles do not function as they should and the aging process is accelerated. When the intake of Coenzyme Q10 is sufficient in a person's memory, energy is enhanced and physical endurance is increased. For this reason, it is popular with athletes who consume it daily.


Coenzyme Q10 Natural Sources

The body synthesizes and obtains Coenzyme Q10 from food, most of which is food of animal origin. Vegetarians can get large amounts of this nutrient from extra virgin olive oil, rapeseed, soybean and grape oil. Coenzyme Q10 can be taken into the body in the form of dietary supplements.
