While CoEnzyme Q-10 may sound a bit like a lab-grown chemical, it’s actually made by the human body. You can find it in every cell inside the mitochondria and it’s got quite an important job across the board.
The vitamin-like substance is required for many biochemical reactions. Organs like the heart, liver, lungs and kidneys, along with skeletal muscles have the highest concentration of CoEnzyme Q-10 as they require a lot of energy.
CoEnzyme Q-10 is an important component when it comes to the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – a molecule that helps distribute energy to each cell in your body. Quite an important task we think you will agree!
When we are young our bodies usually make plenty of this substance naturally, but production tends to get a little sluggish as we age.
If you want to go down the diet route make sure you eat foods like beef, herring, chicken, rainbow trout, eggs, peanuts, rapeseed oil, sesame seeds, pistachios and broccoli.
However, to top-up your CoEnzyme Q-10 levels you could take a supplement to account for at least some of your intake. Simply take one of these Holland and Barrett 50mg CoEnzyme Q-10 tablets a day
Bulking Agents (Dicalcium Phosphate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Calcium Carbonate), Anti-Caking Agents (Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate), Co-Enzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone), Maltodextrin, Glazing Agents (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Glycerol, Hydroxypropyl Cellulose), Vitamin B1 (Thiamin Mononitrate).
