Antioxidant activity and energy production
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) plays a vital role in
supporting cellular energy production and has antioxidant properties. It
has been studied for the role it plays in helping support heart function.
CoQ10 may be important for people taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs
because statin drugs can reduce CoQ10 levels in the body. Trunature CoQ10

Importance of Coenzyme Q10 for Statin users
cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) are known to inhibit the body’s natural
production of CoQ10, which is why supplementation is often recommended for
statin users. Additionally, while the body can produce its own CoQ10, both
this function and the ability to absorb the amounts found naturally in some
foods appear to decrease with older age.
CoQ10 levels may also decrease
under certain health conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and congestive
heart failure. Trunature CoQ10 may help support and replenish CoQ10 levels.
Coenzyme Q10 in the ATP energy process
Q10 (CoQ10) is found in most cells in the body, specifically inside small
organelles of the cell called mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell,
where it is needed to generate energy. With CoQ10’s presence in the lining
of every mitochondrion, we are able to convert food (carbohydrate, protein
and fat) into cellular energy (ATP) and keep our body functioning at its
optimal level. Knowing the role CoQ10 plays in cellular energy production,
it is no wonder that the highest concentrations of CoQ10 are where we need
the most energy, the heart, liver and kidneys.
