Ubiquinone, also known as coenzyme Q10 or simply CoQ10, is a naturally occurring compound found in the body that plays a key role in energy production within cells. It is also available as a dietary supplement and is commonly used in protein powders and other supplements.
Ubiquinone is involved in the production of ATP, a molecule that provides energy to cells. It is found in high concentrations in the heart, liver, and other organs with high energy demands. As a supplement, it is believed to have potential benefits for heart health, energy levels, and exercise performance.
Some studies have suggested that Ubiquinone may help to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve overall cardiovascular health. It may also have benefits for individuals with certain conditions, such as migraines or Parkinson's disease.
Ubiquinone is generally considered safe when used in recommended amounts.
