Coenzyme Q10 (also known as ubiquinone, ubidecarenone, coenzyme Q, and abbreviated at times to CoQ10, CoQ, Q10, or Q) is a benzoquinone, where Q refers to the quinone chemical group, and 10 refers to the isoprenyl chemical subunits.

This vitamin-like substance is, by nature, present in most human cells except red blood cells and eye lens cells (no mitochondria) and are responsible for the production of the body?s own energy. In each human cell, food energy is converted into energy in the mitochondria with the aid of CoQ10. Ninety-five percent of all the human body?s energy requirements (ATP) is converted with the aid of CoQ10.[1][2] Therefore, those organs with the highest energy requirements ? such as the heart, the lungs, and the liver ? have the highest CoQ10 concentrations.[3][4][5]

Coenzyme Q10 (also known as CQ10, CoQ10, Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone, or ubidecarenone) is a compound that is made naturally in the body. A coenzyme is a substance needed for the proper functioning of an enzyme, a protein that speeds up the rate at which chemical reactions take place in the body. The Q and the 10 in CQ10 refer to parts of the compound's chemical structure.


anyone else like to elaborate and how it would actually relate to bodybuilding? Sounds like it would product more energy which is probably a good thing.

very interesting...if you could super saturate yourselfm such as a lot of people do with various types of aminos like creatine and beta alanine, this seems like it has potential

The problem with moving it to Supplement country is that it's inhabited by misfits who think Muscletech will save the world. :)
