CoQ10

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance with numerous energy and heart health benefits. The primary dietary sources are meat (especially organ meats) and fish, although it is also found in vegetable oils like canola, sesame, and soybean.

CoQ10 is present in every cell of your body, where it energizes the mitochondria, the organelles which generate the energy you use to live. Some drugs used to treat heart problems, particularly statins, reduce your body’s stores of CoQ10.

In addition to its energy benefits, CoQ10 has beneficial effects on high blood pressure and chronic heart failure.

CoQ10 also has antioxidant properties which help it to combat some of the effects of aging, such as fine wrinkles and skin roughness.
