Co-enzyme Q10 is an antioxidant involved in energy production. It may be beneficial for those with low energy, and can also support cardiovascular function.

Co-enzyme Q10 levels decrease with age, and are depleted by intense physical exercise or illness. Coenzyme Q10 levels are also depleted in patients prescribed cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. 

Co-enzyme Q10 (also known as ubiqinone) is a vitamin like substance which plays a vital role in the body's energy supply mechanism, acting in conjunction with enzymes (hence the name coenzyme Q10) to convert sugars and fat into energy. Co-enzyme Q10 is also important as an antioxidant within the body. Co-enzyme quinones occur in several chemical forms, with co-enzyme Q10 being the only form found in human tissues. The human body is able to synthesize (in the liver) a limited amount of co-enzyme Q10, with the remainder being obtained from the diet. Rich sources of co-enzyme Q10 include fish (mackerel, salmon, sardines) and nuts. Under normal circumstances, the body is able to maintain adequate levels of coenzyme Q10.
