Coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone, coenzyme Q, and abbreviated at times to CoQ10, CoQ, Q10, or Q, is a compound found naturally in the energy-producing center of the cell known as the mitochondria. CoQ10 is involved in making an important molecule known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP serves as the cell’s major energy source and drives a number of biological processes, including muscle contraction and the production of protein.
CoQ10 And Athletic Performane
There plenty of studies showing that CoQ10 can significantly improve athletic performance (1,2) and less that it does a little bit better then placebo (3). These research were conducted on cross-country skiers and sedentary men in the gym, here CoQ10 showed performance-enhancing effects, when on more trained men, the effects were less (3).
CoQ10 Is A Beneficial Antioxidant
CoQ10 is supportive to reduce oxidative damage to tissues as well as significantly inhibit the oxidation of LDL cholesterol (4, 5). This is a great aid for diseases. In keeping with the free radical theory of aging, these antioxidant properties of CoQ10 have clear implications in the slowing of aging.
Summary Of Other Health Benefits
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential component of healthy mitochondrial function(6, 7). The mitochondria are the cells’ energy powerhouses and CoQ10 is required to convert the energy from fats and sugars into usable cellular energy. CoQ10 helps to support cardiovascular health (8) and helps to reduce the frequency of migraine headaches and associated nausea and vomiting when taken as a prophylactic (9,10). Coenzyme Q10 has many other implications for healthy living, hover, further studies are needed to be done.
