Coenzyme Q10, Total
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10; Ubiquinone 50) is an endogenous compound found in most human tissues. It possesses multiple cellular and extracellular functions, primarily based on it ability to undergo redox cycling. Such redox cycling plays an important role in vivo. Examples include CoQ10’s involvement in ATP synthesis (as part of the electron transport chain of the inner membrane of the mitochondrion) and its ability to act as an antioxidant in the prevention of lipid peroxidation.
