CoQ10 is a vital nutrient for many biochemical reactions including the regulation of conversion of food into energy. It also increases the body?s capacity for oxygen uptake. For these reasons, CoQ10 may be of assistance in circumstances when increased oxygen uptake is desirable, e.g. athletes, as well as to increase body energy, particularly in the elderly.
Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger which is present in every cell in the body, particularly in muscular tissue such as the heart. CoQ10 levels decline with age and this can affect the heart?s ability to pump blood effectively and to maintain adequate circulation. Research at the Baker Medical Institute in Melbourne has shown that aged heart muscle cells fed CoQ10 performed as well as younger cardiac cells. Additionally, studies conducted by the Heart Research Institute in Sydney have demonstrated that supplementing with CoQ10 can remarkably enhance the resistance of LDL (bad) cholesterol to oxidative attack. Other research has shown that daily doses of 150 mg of CoQ10 can improve both the symptoms and exercise tolerance in heart patients.
