CoQ10 is also a versatile antioxidant, stabilizing cell membranes (helping to protect them from free radical damage) and contributing to their fluidity. Coenzyme Q10 levels decrease with age, a factor that may actually contribute to the aging process. Since food content of CoQ10 can be very low, many healthcare providers recommend supplementing with Coenzyme Q10. Enhances Cardiovascular Health / Supports Endothelial Function Due to the extraordinary energy requirements of our hardworking heart, the highest concentration of CoQ10 is found in heart muscle tissue. Coenzyme Q10 is known to support the heart through mitochondrial bioenergetics, the process of cellular energy transformation. On top of this, CoQ10 helps to promote overall cardiovascular health by confronting oxidative stress in heart and endothelial (blood vessel wall) cells. In terms of bioenergetics, CoQ10 supplementation acts to preserve energy turnover in mitochondria -our cellular powerhouses- by keeping ATP synthesis at optimal levels.
