Coenzyme Q10, or Ubiquinone as it is also known, is found in most human cells, mainly within the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas. The coenzyme is a vitamin-like substance that was first identified in 1957. The '10' in the name refers to the chemical properties of the substance. Coenzyme Q10 is naturally produced by our bodies but production levels decrease as we age. The substance is also available in lower quantities in those with certain conditions, heart disease being one example. The coenzyme is found in certain foods including meat, fish and wholegrains. However, the amount of Coenzyme Q10 available in food sources is not enough to dramatically increase your body's Coenzyme Q10 resources.
Coenzyme Q10 may also be written as Ubiquinone, Co-enzyme Q10 or CoQ10.
