What is coenzyme Q10?

You may have heard of coenzyme Q10, it’s an essential nutrient that our body creates. 

Why does it matter to me?

Coenzyme Q10 contributes to the energy needed by all our cells and is vital for the health of all our tissues and organs.

Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant (protects our cells from damage) and may be very important in reducing the effects of ageing.

Did you know?
  •  It is a fat-soluble nutrient 
  •  It is primarily created by our body 
  •  It can also be consumed in our diet
  •  It is found in virtually all of our cells
Coenzyme Q10 and other nutrients

But the thing about coenzyme Q10 is that for us to produce this amazing nutrient we need adequate supplies of these 6 B vitamins: B6, B12, Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Folate (B9) and Pantothenic acid (B5) along with vitamin C - see link below.

Rich sources of dietary coenzyme Q10 include mainly meat, poultry, and fish. Other relatively rich sources include soybean and rapeseed oil, and nuts.

What should I look out for?


Approximately 14%-32% of coenzyme Q10 is lost during the frying of vegetables and eggs, but does not change when they are boiled.

The use of cholesterol lowering medications such as statins reduces the level of coenzyme Q10 in our bodies - see link below.
