Coenzyme Q10 is present in almost all the cells in our body and also in circulation (in lipoproteins). Practicaly every cell has the ability to synthesize Coenzyme Q10. The endogenous synthesis of CoQ10 happens to be a very complex process requiring numerous vitamins such as vitamin B6, vitamin B12, folic acid, niacinamide, pantothenic acid and vitamin C, and also certain trace elements. The quinone ring structure is derived from the amino acid tyrosine, the methyl groups on the ring supplied by methionine, and the isoprenoid side chain coming from the mevalonate pathway (the same pathway shared by cholesterol). Thus the production of CoQ10 is dependent on an adequate supply of numerous precursors and cofactors, and a deficiency of one or more of these essential components can adversely affect the production of adequate amounts of CoQ10.
Healing Line Coenzyme Q10 is made by fermentation process and is a fat-soluble substance and therefore it is absorbed like any other fat in our diet.
The primary function of CoQ10 in our body is in cellular energy production. It is a critical component of mitochondria that are present in practically every cell in our body. Mitochondria may in fact be considered as fuel cells where biological energy called ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is produced. CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant and it helps protect the tissues and the cellular components in the body from free radical damage.
