Shortage of coenzyme Q10 is associated with gum disease and heart problems.Our body's production declines as we age, so may lead to increased tiredness. May have important role in Alzheimer's, migraine and Parkinson disease.
Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance that is present in all human cells and is responsible in part for the production of the body's own energy. The highest concentrations of coenzyme Q10 are found in the organs that have the highest energy requirements (e.g. the heart muscle and the liver). It is also found in high concentrations in tissues such as the gums that need to regenerate quickly.
Also known as ubiquinone and ubidecarenone, which highlights its ubiquitous nature in human tissues, a lack of coenzyme Q10 has been associated with gum disease(periodontal disease). People with heart problems and the obese also may have low coenzyme Q10 levels.
Coenzyme Q10 is produced in the body, but production declines as we age, so it has been suggested that a lack of energy in older people may, in part, be connected with lower coenzyme Q10 production in the body.
It has also been suggested that coenzyme Q10 benefits may include relief from some of the side effects of cancer treatment, and helpful for migraine and Parkinson's disease. Roland Stocker, Ph.D. (University of New South Wales,Sydney, Australia) says: "Evidence is accumulating for a role of CoQ10 in the treatment of mitochondrial disorders and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)."
