Importance of Coenzyme Q10 to Health

Coenzyme Q10 also known as ubidecarenone or simply CoQ10 is a vitamin-like compound that belongs to the quinine chemical group. The number 10 in its name refers to its isoprenyl chemical subunit. It is an oil-soluble substance whose one of the primary roles is to aid in the process of aerobic cellular respiration, which produces energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate. Above ninety percent of energy in the human body is produced via the said process. It is also the reason behind why abundant levels of coenzyme Q10 are present in the organs that requires highest energy – such as the liver, kidney, and heart.

Experiments were done to study the process on how the body synthesis coenzyme Q10 and how supplemental CoQ10 behaves in the body. They found out that aside from endogenous synthesis of coenzyme Q10 by the body, it can also be gained through different foods though the concentration is very limited.

One can find the biggest source of dietary coenzyme Q10 through meat and fish. On the other hand, the amount of CoQ10 that could be getting through these sources varies depending on what particular animal parts. For example, there are approximately about 50 mg of CoQ10 per kilogram of pork, beef, chicken heart, or chicken liver, and it also varies in the muscle, heart, and other animal parts.

On the other hand, those who prefer CoQ10 intake through supplementation it is suggested that coenzyme Q10 would be ingested together with a serving of food containing oil to attain a fast and effective absorption. Coenzyme Q10 is soluble to fat and resembling every other fat soluble chemical compound wherein it is inadequately absorbed from the gastrointestinal area particularly once ingested with an unfilled stomach. Be advised to eat first while taking such supplement so that it would effectively absorbed inside the body and achieve the full effects of the coenzyme Q10.
