Co enzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is a vitamin like substance found in almost all of the tissues of the body. It’s main function to facilitate the release of energy from ATP in the mitochondria (energy producing units) of the cell, and over ninety percent of all energy conversion in the body occurs with the aid of Q10. This vital enzyme also aids in many other physiological processes and sufficient levels are vital for proper functioning of the body. Its presence is particularly important in organs, which require a high level of energy to function such as the heart, lungs, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and adrenal glands. Deficiency in Q10 has been strongly linked to an increase in the likelihood of disease of these organs, and likewise the supplementation of Q10 has been linked to improvements in the same conditions.
Also a highly potent antioxidant, Q10 has many benefits other than aiding energy production. It has been shown in trials to relieve symptoms of migraine, reduce hypertension, help in weight reduction in the obese (Q10 has been shown to help the body metabolise stored fat in the obese but not in the non obese. This appears to be related to the fact that obesity can reduce the body’s levels of Q10 by up to 40%), reducing blood pressure, and can help reduce levels of LDL cholesterol which have been linked to arteriosclerosis. In high doses (300-600mg daily) it has also been shown to demonstrate significant benefits in the treatment of various other cardiovascular conditions and diseases.
For the athlete, Q10’s main benefit as a supplement is in its ability to improve performance by allowing a more efficient production of energy. High intensity strenuous exercise has been shown to reduce stored levels of Q10 faster than the body can replenish them. Over the course of a workout this can lead to reduced performance. Supplemental provision of Q10 can rectify this, and this has been backed up by numerous trials. Coenzyme Q10 is fat soluble so is best consumed alongside dietary fats to ensure optimum uptake.
