Why is CoQ10 supplementation important?

CoQ10, also known as Coenzyme Q10, is a vitamin-like compound found in every cell of the human body. So, what does it do and why is it so important?

Putting it simple, it helps the body convert food into energy. This nutrient is involved in the creation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is an energy-carrying molecule. As mentioned, this is found in every living thing, but organs with high energy requirements, have a higher concentration of CoQ10 to produce energy, for example the heart. 

We naturally produce this compound, but studies have shown that with time, we start losing our ability to produce it. At the same time, medications and nutrient insufficiency and imbalance and nutrient intake can also affect our CoQ10 levels. With all the micronutrients, CoQ10 is another important nutrient you should be watching for. Therefore, finding a great supplement is key to keep a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
