Coenzyme Q10 is an important nutrient involved in cellular energy production acting as a cofactor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain. Also called ubiquinone, due to its presence in virtually all cells of the human body, it also acts as a potent antioxidant. Alterations in endogenous coenzyme Q10 can lead to reduced energy formation and an increase in the production of reactive oxygen species.
Coenzyme Q10 has been shown helpful in cases of cardiovascular disease, mitochondrial disorders, infertility, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
Pro Coenzyme Q10 provides an effective dosage of ubiquinone in its simplest form.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential factor in energy production in the mitochondria, is a powerful fat-soluble network antioxidant and supports healthy cardiovascular function.

Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble nutrient with a strong ability to give up electrons quickly and act as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals. Coenzyme Q10 has been shown to protect against lipid peroxidation, as studied in patients with atherosclerosis. Improved function has also been reported in those with coronary artery disease as shown by decreased levels of IL-6, lower levels of oxidative stress, and improved function of antioxidant enzymes when treated with coenzyme Q10. Deficiencies in coenzyme Q10 are often induced by the use of statin medications, especially in patients with genetic susceptibility. Due to this, supplementation with coenzyme Q10 often ameliorates the side effects and consequences of statin use including muscle aches, pain and weakness, and fatigue.
Reactivates Other Antioxidant Vitamins
Coenzyme Q10 is able to keep other antioxidants such as vitamins E and C active. As vitamins C and E perform antioxidant functions, they themselves become oxidized. Coenzyme Q10 is able to recharge these compounds by reducing them back to their active state.
Other Clinical Applications
Reduced levels of coenzyme Q10 have been reported in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome compared to healthy controls. One randomized controlled trial found that supplementation with coenzyme Q10 for 12 weeks led to improved symptoms (e.g., night‐time awakenings). While other reports indicate coenzyme Q10 can help decrease post-exercise fatigue in these patients.
The use of coenzyme Q10 has also been studied in infertility. In a double-blind controlled trial, men with asthenoteratospermia, given coenzyme Q10 for 6 months, had improved sperm motility. Another controlled study also found improved sperm density, motility and morphology in infertile men with abnormal sperm parameters when supplemented with coenzyme Q10.
In women, coenzyme Q10 plays a crucial role in energy production for oocyte maturation. In vitro and animal studies have confirmed coenzyme Q10’s function in improving oocyte development, proliferation, and protection of oocyte DNA from chromosomal scattering.
