What is Coenzyme Q10?
Coenzyme Q-10, also known as ubiquinone and CoQ-10, is an essential component of our cells energy production. Almost all of the body’s energy is produced through aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy in the form of ATP. Human organs with the highest energy requirements - such as the heart, liver and kidney – have the highest CoQ-10 concentrations.†
As we age, our body's natural production of CoQ-10 slows down, making it harder to convert fats and sugars into energy. Natrol® CoQ-10 is a natural supplement and antioxidant that helps cells work more efficiently in the heart and throughout the body.†
CoQ-10 100mg is a commonly recommended daily dosage for maintaining healthy CoQ-10 levels.†
Size/Form: 200mg 45 Softgels

Q: What is CoQ-10?
A: Coenzyme Q-10 (also known as CoQ10, Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone, and ubidecarenone) is a benzoquinone compound synthesized naturally by the human body. Coenzyme Q-10 is used by cells of the body in a process known variously as aerobic respiration, aerobic metabolism, oxidative metabolism, or cell respiration. Through this process, energy for cell growth and maintenance is created inside cells in compartments called mitochondria. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is necessary for the basic functioning of cells. Coenzyme Q10 is also used by the body as an antioxidant, which means that it protects cells from damaging free radicals.†
