Coenzyme Q10

It appears to me that Q10 is not as important as the supplement manufacturers suggest it is :

  • Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble compound primarily synthesized by the body and also consumed in the diet.
  • Endogenous synthesis and dietary intake appear to provide sufficient coenzyme Q10 to prevent deficiency in healthy people. (More information)
  • Oral supplementation of coenzyme Q10 increases plasma, lipoprotein, and blood vessel levels, but it is unclear whether tissue coenzyme Q10 levels are increased, especially in healthy individuals. (More information)
