What is CoQ10
CoQ10 (also called ubiquinone) is a fat-soluble molecule found in almost every cell in the body.
CoQ10 is needed for the production of energy in our body. Without CoQ10, energy production will be disrupted.

Why is Coenzyme Q10 important?

CoQ10 is important because it is required for the production of energy in the form of ATP. The organ that contains the highest concentration of coenzyme Q10 is the heart. Our body produces its own supply of coenzyme Q10 but as we age, our body experiences a decline in coenzyme Q10 production.1

How is Coenzyme Q10 produced?

Coenzyme Q10 in our body is produced via the same pathway that produces cholesterol. Therefore patients taking statins (anti-cholesterol drugs) also experience reduced levels of coenzyme Q10 in their bodies.3 In supplements, coenzyme Q10 is generally produced from yeast fermentation.

Can we obtain Coenzyme Q10 from our food?

Yes, the average amount of coenzyme Q10 that we obtain from an average diet is between 3-5mg. To obtain high intake of coenzyme Q10, supplements may be required.2

What is the recommended dosage of Coenzyme Q10?

Currently, there is no recommended dosage for daily intake of Coenzyme Q10. Generally, most clinical studies involving coenzyme Q10 is conducted with dosages of 50mg and above.


Maintaining high Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) levels is key to sustaining vibrant health because it helps to generate energy for every cell, tissue and organ in the body.
