Also known as ubiquinone, or simply vitamin Q, coenzyme Q10 is a lipid type structure with vitamin like activity. It is found naturally occurring in all human cells, and is responsible for the cells energy production. As we get older Q10 levels fall off, making supplementation necessary.
Coenzyme Q10 functions at a very fundamental level as a carrier in the “electron transport” chain. This is the final stage of a very complex process in which energy is produced from food, leading to the production of Adenosine Tri-phosphate, ATP. It is ATP that the cell uses as a “fuel”.
Coenzyme Q10 has been used in the management of a variety of disorders. Its primary use is as an adjunctive therapy for chronic heart failure. It has been shown to be effective in the management of congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, hypertension, stable angina, ventricular arrhythmia, cancer, periodontal disease, chronic fatigue, muscular dystrophy, and as a general energy booster.
Coenzyme Q10 is usually effective at levels of 60-100mg/day in healthy individuals. When used therapeutically doses of 100-600mg/day should be taken. Up to 800mg have been used in long term studies without any toxicity problems or side effects.
