Health Benefits of Q10 (Coenzyme Q10)

What exactly are the health benefits of Q10 anyways?

Also known as ubiquinone or simply Co Q10, this near universal substance is found in practically every cell in the body.

What is so special about this vitamin-like substance? It is needed for energy generation by our body. Indeed it is found in very high concentrations in the mitochondria of cells. Mitochondria are the power station inside of every living cell.

Mitochondria make energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the storage form of energy for cells. Think of ATP like money. Having lots of ATP is like having lots of money in your savings account at the local bank.
