Coenzyme Q10 is synthesised naturally in humans and is also found in foods, such as vegetables and fish. It acts as a cofactor in the electron transfer pathway which produces energy (in the form of adenosine triphosphate - ATP) within the mitochondria of human cells. The energy is used for muscle contraction and other vital functions. It is also an antioxidant which may have a sparing effect on vitamins C and E in situations of oxidative stress. Diminished concentrations of coenzyme Q10 have been reported with increasing age, on statin medication and in various disorders including cardiovascular disease and cancers.
