In each of the trillions of cell, there are a energy generator plants known as mitochondria. Complex biochemistry reactions occur within mitochondria to change foods into chemical energy (adenosine triphosphate or ATP).
ATP is a type of molecule which contains stored energy like a battery, needed by our cells to function smoothly. Q10 Coenzyme (CoQ10) is an important component in ATP production process and without CoQ10 no energy can be produced.
Then it is no wonder if heart muscles, the most active tissues, contains 10 times more CoQ10 compared to other organs in the body. But unfortunately, the production of CoQ10 by our body has slowed down when we increasingly aged.
When your age hit 40s, your CoQ10 will decline as much as 40 percent compared when you were in your 20s. When your age hit seventies then, your CoQ10 level will decline as much as 60 percent.
Heart muscle tissues and Q10 Coenzyme (CoQ10) level
All cells need CoQ10 but some of it are more sensitive to low CoQ10 level. A few types of cells, tissue or organ may experience CoQ10 shortage problem but still able to function normally.
However, for other cells, tissues or organs which are very sensitive to low level of CoQ10, even a slight decline in the quantity, can bring to feeling weak, fatigue and a few other diseases.
The sensitive parts of our body to low level of CoQ10 are the heart, brain, the immune system and gum tissues. The most sensitive organ to low level of CoQ10 is the heart. This might be a reason why heart disease is listed as among the major killer disease in the world.
But there is good news; the energy can be regained to the cells by taking CoQ10 supplement. Continued in The Source of CoQ10 (Q10 Coenzyme).Sponsored links:
