Summary

"Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble compound that is synthesized by the body and can be obtained from the diet. Coenzyme Q10 plays a central role in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation and the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It also functions as an antioxidant in cell membranes and lipoproteins. Endogenous synthesis and dietary intake provide sufficient coenzyme Q10 to prevent deficiency in healthy people, although coenzyme Q10 concentrations in tissues decline with age."
