Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is found throughout your body. You might say it’s ubiquitous, and you’d be right. That’s why CoQ10 is also known as “ubiquinone.”
CoQ10 is naturally made by the body and is concentrated in cellular membranes. In particular, the membranes of mitochondria. These organelles—specialized cell structures—are the place in each cell where energy is made. They’re your cellular power plants.
In order to function properly, every cell in your body is powered by energy. The food you eat is the main source of this fuel. Energy is generated when the chemical bonds of food molecules are broken apart. This occurs in a complex cycle that ultimately results in the generation of new molecules that can be used and stored in the mitochondria: adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The process requires many steps and many nutrients. CoQ10 is a key part of the process.

CoQ10 works like a relay race team member on the electron transport chain—a series of reactions that create energy. Because it’s fat soluble, it can move freely across the lipid (fat) bilayer of your cellular membranes. So, in simple terms, CoQ10 helps support ATP production in three steps:
- It takes electrons from one group of proteins
- It quickly transports the electrons across the lipid layer
- It delivers those electrons to another group of proteins
Your body naturally makes CoQ10 to support the energy generation cycle. So why do you need to add it in a supplement?
When you’re young, your body stores or produces ample amounts of CoQ10. The amount peaks (in most organs) around age 20. Then, with age, it gradually declines. By the time you hit your eighties, your cells could have less than half of what they did in your twenties. Plus, CoQ10 may be depleted by several other factors, including overall nutritional status and inadequate levels of the B vitamins, vitamin C, and selenium.
You can help your cells act with youthful efficiency. Give them what they need to create energy with CoQuinone 30. Made with a highly absorbable form of CoQ10, CoQuinone 30 can help replenish your cells’ stores of CoQ10. This helps ensure that your hardworking cells will have plenty of energy, so they can stay healthy—which gives you the energy to stay healthy.*
