Energy is the currency the body uses to carry out all metabolic
processes and to function optimally. Energy is especially
required during exercise and in endurance training when the
athletes not only need instant energy but also a sufficient
supply of oxygen to maintain a rigorous regimen. Coenzyme Q10 is
the spark that produces energy is the body.
Coenzyme Q exists
in every cell in the body. It functions as a messenger in the
units called mitochondria, which are the powerhouses of the
cell, where the oxidation of the foods eaten takes place and
energy is generated as a result. This process is usually called
respiration. Even though the body can synthesize CoQ10, it can
be deficient in CoQ10 in cases of increased tissue needs, such
as during high intensity exercise regimens. If respiration is
limited, the body does not produce sufficient energy. Therefore,
the blood supply to various tissues and organs is impaired.
Nutritional supplementation with CoQ10 can replenish it under
conditions of extreme duress, such as in endurance
Because CoQ10 produces energy in combination with
respiration, supplementation with dietary CoQ10 ensures that
muscles and other critical tissues and organs receive ample
amount of oxygen via blood. Since the blood also carries
nutrients in its stream, delivery of oxygen also provides
appropriate nutrition to muscles and other organs critical for
the bodily metabolism and survival.
In addition to its
critical role in energy production "on demand," CoQ10 is one of
the more potent natural antioxidant found in nature. As such, it
protects proteins, membranes and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA, the
molecules that make up the genetic material) from the ravages of
The importance of CoQ10 can hardly be
overemphasized. In its role as the agent that produces oxygen,
CoQ10 is extremely important for heart health. In fact,
deficiency of CoQ10 has been shown to be a causative factor in a
variety of illnesses.
