CoQ10 is a substance that occurs naturally in the body when we are born but which decreases with age. Low levels of Q10 can cause weakness and, in the worst case, heart problems. People who may benefit from testing their Q10 levels are, for example, people with fibromyalgia, depression, fatigue/exhaustion, as well as athletes, smokers or people who take statins.

We also offer a more comprehensive vitamin test that measures Q10, as well as vitamin B12, D, E and Folate.

Understanding CoQ10: Its Role and Benefits

CoQ10, a vitamin-like substance, is essential in various bodily functions. It plays a key role in energy production within the mitochondria, the cell's "powerhouse," and is found in all body cells. High levels of CoQ10 in the brain, heart, liver, and other energy-intensive organs highlight its significance for our immune system and overall health. CoQ10 levels naturally present from birth decline with age, potentially leading to energy shortages and, in severe cases, heart issues.

CoQ10's Function in the Body

As a coenzyme, CoQ10 is instrumental in several vital bodily processes, especially in the heart and immune system cells. The liver is the primary production site, with our diet contributing a small portion. Rich sources include mackerel and organ meat. Notably, CoQ10 production begins to decrease in our 30s.

In the cell mitochondria, CoQ10 aids in converting nutrients into energy. It doubles as an antioxidant, safeguarding cells against free radical damage and inhibiting the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, which is considered harmful.

The Advantages of CoQ10 Supplementation

CoQ10 supplementation can boost heart health and alleviate symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as pain sensitivity and muscle aches. With natural CoQ10 levels decreasing with age, monitoring your body's levels is crucial. Patients with chronic heart failure often show reduced CoQ10 levels. Those experiencing depression, fatigue, or taking statins may also benefit from CoQ10 supplements. Athletes looking to improve performance and oxygen uptake can benefit from additional CoQ10, which helps mitigate muscle weakness and fatigue from intense physical exertion. Smokers can improve their oxygen uptake capacity with CoQ10 supplements.

In skincare, CoQ10's antioxidant properties help fight wrinkles by protecting cells against free radicals, a key contributor to premature aging. Studies indicate that CoQ10 can reduce wrinkle formation due to sun exposure and aging, while also enhancing skin cell energy metabolism and renewal.
