Coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinone
Dietary supplement based on CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone or ubiquinol (two main forms of CoQ10). Coenzyme Q10 is a vital substance present in every cell of the human body. This molecule plays a crucial role in cellular energy production and is also a powerful antioxidant.
Dietary sources of CoQ10 include meat and oily fish such as sardines and salmon. Walnuts, spinach, canola and rapeseed oils are also rich in coenzyme Q10. These ubiquinones have numerous benefits for our bodies. Find out more:
Coenzyme Q10 is one of the substances required for cell energy production. They are found in the mitochondria, the cells' energy powerhouses. It contributes to the synthesis of ATP, the main cellular energy molecule, and helps keep mitochondrial function running smoothly.
It thus enhances vitality and energy, especially for people suffering from chronic fatigue or for athletes engaged in intense physical effort, providing the energy needed for muscle function. The amount of coenzyme Q10 in the body decreases with age.
CoQ10, a powerful antioxidant
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant molecule. It is essential in the fight against excess free radicals.
It acts against free radicals by neutralizing them, helping to protect cells against oxidative stress and prevent the signs of aging.
Coenzyme Q10 is present in all the body's cells, and is also involved in the production of the energy needed by the heart. For this reason, CoQ10 deficiency can often be observed in people suffering from heart failure, hence the importance of CoQ10 supplementation.
May prevent heart disease by acting on hypertension through its blood pressure-lowering effects.
People taking statins, a cholesterol-lowering drug, may also benefit from supplementation, as these cholesterol-lowering drugs can reduce coenzyme levels in the body.
Metabolic disorders such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome can be linked to coenzyme Q10 deficiency. Ideal for diabetics, CoQ10 has been shown to help improve insulin sensitivity. It also reduces cholesterol levels and helps balance blood lipids.
As CoQ10 is present in the body's cells, it also supports the proper functioning of essential organs such as the kidneys and heart, which are often affected by these metabolic disorders.
