Here are a few facts about this nutrient that can help people understand the drug and what it does for the body.
Co-Enzyme Q10 is known by many names. It is usually called CoQ10 for short, but other names include Vitamin Q and Ubiquinone, from the word ubiquitous meaning present everywhere.

Co-Enzyme Q10 is naturally found in each living cell in our body. It is found in the part of the cell called the mitochondria or the powerhouse of the cell. Its main purpose in the cell is to convert and transfer the nutrients we get from our food into energy that our body can use. The parts of the body that need the most energy, such as the heart and the lungs have the highest levels of Co-Enzyme Q10.
Co-Enzyme Q10 was first discovered in the 1950’s when its chemical structure was published. It was then rediscovered in the 1960s during an experiment with electron transfers. It was here that its role in energy distribution was first noticed. During the 1980’s, laboratories found a way to mass produce the Co-Enzyme Q10 protein and the number of clinical trials and research started from then on. It would take another decade or so before this protein would be used as a dietary supplement.
Co-Enzyme Q10 is naturally produced in our bodies through the food we eat. However, we are only able to produce around 2-5 mg of Co-Enzyme Q10 every day. If we eat foods that are rich in Co-Enzyme Q10, we can only boost it to as much as 6-10 mg a day. With Co-Enzyme Q10 supplements, we can now increase the amount of CoQ10 we have in our bodies to as much as 200 mg per day.
