Also known as ubiquinone, co-enzyme Q10 is the enzyme responsible for the last biochemical pathway required for energy production within our cells. It is therefore not surprising to find the highest concentrations of co-enzyme Q10 in those organs, which have the highest energy requirements such as the heart muscle and liver, and in those tissues that regenerate quickly such as the gums.

A lack of co-enzyme Q10 has been associated with periodontal (gum) disease. Similarly it has been shown that those with certain heart conditions and the obese tend to have low co-enzyme Q10 levels. Co-enzyme Q10 is found in foods, particularly organ meat, but cooking and processing methods have a tendency to destroy it and, whilst it can be made in the body, production declines as we age. In fact, a lack of energy in older people may, in part, be connected with lower co-enzyme Q10 production in the body.
