CoQ10’s primary role is to protect and nurture mitochondria the principal energy source of the cell. CoQ10 molecules play a critical role in supporting the transport of electrons between enzymes that produce energy within cells. Research has shown that CoQ10 is an extremely powerful antioxidant and helps support the nervous system. Medical studies have shown there is a relationship between low levels of CoQ10 and disease processes such as Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, gum disease, hypertension, cancer and muscular dystrophy. Factors related to CoQ10 deficiency include poor diet, thyroid dysfunction, the aging process and antidepressants. Statins sold in Canada carry a warning label on them stating that CoQ10 depletion may lead to impaired cardiac function in patients with known heart failure.
