Coenzyme Q10 (or ubiquinone) is an important rate-limiting nutrient that is a cofactor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, the biochemical pathway in cellular respiration from which adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and metabolic energy is derived. Since nearly all cellular activities are dependent upon energy, coenzyme Q10 is essential for the health of all human tissues and organs.
Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally-occurring antioxidant nutrient which retards free radical formation in biological systems. Coenzyme Q10 resembles vitamin E and vitamin K in chemical structure. Biochemically, it functions much like vitamin E in that it participates in certain antioxidant and free radical reactions. Healthy humans who consume a well-balanced diet have the ability to synthesize coenzyme Q10. Unhealthy individuals, those on lipid lowering drugs and those consuming an inadequate diet may not synthesize coenzyme Q10 in sufficient quantity.
According to Dr. Karl Folkers and other experts, humans can biosynthesize coenzyme Q10 from tyrosine or phenylalanine and mevalonic acid, which are small molecules abundant in the body. This is a complex biochemical process that requires 15 separate steps and many enzymes, coenzymes, vitamins and minerals. Only by such a process can the respiratory chain receive proper levels of coenzyme Q10.
