What is CoQ10?

Last Updated: April 29, 2019 | 2 minute read


Mitochondria are often described as our cellular batteries. They are small organelles that sit in our cells and are responsible for generating the power to run the cells.

What is CoQ10?

CoQ10 is an antioxidant in every cell in our body. However, it is a large molecule and very low levels are able to reach the cell and mitochondria. MitoQ is an antioxidant that has been shown to reach the mitochondria at levels that will protect and support optimal mitochondrial function.

In fact, MitoQ reaches the mitochondria in our cells at levels hundreds of times higher than normal CoQ10. Over the years CoQ10 and MitoQ have been shown to reduce oxidative stress and support cellular energy.

CoQ10 can support:

  • Heart health
  • Brain health
  • Male fertility
  • Energy
  • Oral health
  • Eye health
  • Lung health

CoQ10 is also said to speed recovery from exercise and assist with the side effects of certain medicines (like statins).

You can get a full list of these conditions from the Mayo Clinic website here

MitoQ is an advanced and targeted CoQ delivery system that delivers CoQ to the cell and the mitochondria at levels that until now have not been able to be achieved by existing CoQ10 supplements.

MitoQ specifically supports the cell by delivering high levels of antioxidant protection direct to the cellular energy source, mitochondria. By delivering CoQ - the body’s natural antioxidant, to the mitochondria, MitoQ can support all of the conditions associated with CoQ deficiency with the added benefit of protecting the cellular energy source.

Over a decade of research has been undertaken on MitoQ to evaluate its effect on mitochondrial protection. We encourage you to investigate MitoQ and its beneficial health effects for yourself.
