The majority of the clinical uses for CoQ10 are founded upon its role as an antioxidant,and its role in mitochondrial bioenergetics. It is a coenzyme for numerous reactionsinvolved in cellular respiration, and is required for the efficient formation of adenosinetriphosphate (ATP), the cellular currency which drives the majority of enzymatic reactions.1,2It inhibits peroxidation of cell membrane lipids as well as circulating lipoproteins.3,4CoQ10supports cardiac tissues by improving endothelial function and by having a direct antiatherogeniceffect, which results in lower blood pressure and improved ventricularcontractility.5,6
