What is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
CoQ10 is ubiquitous in life. Every living creature including humans uses CoQ10 for energy production in all its cells. It is powerful anti-oxidant & is used by all muscles for energy production during muscle contraction (or work). Heart is the most active muscle in our body & uses almost 50 times more CoQ10 then skeletal (body) muscles.
The wonder drugs of today – Statins block CoQ10 production, when these drugs stop cholesterol production in body. No CoQ10 means muscles – heart & skeletal don’t make adequate energy. Muscle pain, fatigue & generalized weakness are common side effects of statins, but also from poor diets. CoQ10 levels go down as we age.
CoQ10 is present in 2 forms Ubiquinone (inactive) & Ubiquinol (active). Obviously the active form is easier to utilize & more effective than inactive form. However, both are expensive & work. Take your CoQ10 today, if you like your heart & muscles!
