Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10 ) occurs naturally in all human cells. It is essentials in cellular energy production. CoQ10 is made in the body, but production is reduced as we get older. It is also found in foods (especially meat), but cooking and processing methods tend to destroy it. The Japanese have been using supplemental CoQ10 for many years but but it was not until 1974 that pure CoQ10 was obtained in large enough quantities for the Japanese to initiate organized trials on patients. A Coenzyme helps an enzyme to do its job. An enzyme is a protein that speeds up the rate at which natural chemical reactions take place in the cells of the body.

The body cells uses coenzyme Q10 to make energy needed for the cells in the body. The body also uses Coenzyme Q10 as an antioxidants. An antioxidants is a substance that protects cells from chemical called free radicals. Free radical can damage DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), Genes, which are pieces of DNA, tell the cells how to work the body and when to grow and divide. Damage to DNA has been linked t some kinds of cancer. By protecting cells against free radicals, antioxidant helps protect body against cancer. Coenzyme Q10 maybe useful in treating cancer because it boosts the immune system. Also studies suggest that Coenzyme Q10, analogs (drugs that are similar to Coenzyme Q10) may prevent the growth of the cancer cells directly.

Here are some therapeutic usages:
1. Reduce risk of heart disease, including congestive heart failure, ischemic heart disease, and irregular heart beat
2. Periodontal (gum) disease
3. Obesity when due to a CoQ10 deficiency
4. Restore energy
5. Improving immunity - stimulates antibody formation
