How CoQ10 Works

Cells within the body use CoQ10 for maintenance and growth. Specifically, within the cell, it is believed that the mitochondria use CoQ10 as one of their sources of fuel and energy. This is important to understand because mitochondria themselves are considered the “powerhouse” of the cell, so if they use CoQ10 for fuel, effectively, the whole cell may rely to some degree on CoQ10 for energy and proper functioning. 

Mitochondria that are not functioning properly have, in some cases, been shown to have depleted levels of CoQ10. The result is fatigue and other issues.

CoQ10 is also found in certain meats and grains. The problem, however, if that CoQ10 does not exist within foods at the level of which is believed to be effective in treating ailments like heart disease and others.

For some, these occurrences may just be small inconveniences, but others may encounter severe, debilitating migraines on a fairly regular basis. These people may have trouble working, have trouble focusing, and experience great amounts of pain on a regular basis. The fact is, Migraines are more serious than they may initially seem.Physical or Mental Performance: CoQ10 is believed to have a positive impact on both physical and mental performance.
