Up until then, it was known as ubiquinone (meaning everywhere, widespread) because it is to be found everywhere in nature. Despite the fact that Co-Q10 is present in all vegetative and animal cells it’s quantities are not optimal – this is the reason it is necessary for additional quantities to be provided. Coenzyme Q10 is a catalyzer for food processing by working together with enzymes – this is the origin of the word coenzyme. Co-Q10 is an essential element for the production of energy and is necessary for the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – a multifunctional chemical compound vital for the health of the cells. Co-Q10 plays a role in the process of transferring energy and oxygen between blood and body cells as well as between the cell components. In other words, it is very important for the tissues and the organs of the body. High quantities are to be found in heart, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Co-Q10 works in a combination with vitamin E and may prevent its disintegration. Latest studies suggest that Co-Q10 may prevent many cardiovascular diseases.
