What is Coenzyme Q10?

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is the key of the biochemistry theory. It has been completely verified that Q10 generates ATP at the end of the electron transfer step of the Kreb’s cycle with anti-oxidant activity. Also called as ubiquinone, it plays a key role in generating energy within mitochondria in cells. It is essential element for all the living animals.

Coenzyme Q10 can be obtained from beef, egg, fish (cod, mackerel, salmon, and sardine), spinach, broccoli, unrefined grain, malt, vegetable oil, meat such as liver/heart, and others. As a lipid-soluble substance, it can be effectively absorbed when cooked with oil. But it is easily destroyed when cooked. The recommended daily uptake of CoQ10 is 4.2~7.2 mg which is hardly obtained only by daily foods. The amount of CoQ10 is the highest in the age of 19~20 and it is decreased by aging, environmental pollution, stress, and disease.
