Conenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 is part of a family called the ubiquinones and is a powerful antioxidant! Humans can synthesize CoQ10 so it’s considered nonessential, but nonetheless, deficiencies can arise. One of the biggest risk factors for deficiency is treatment with a cholesterol lowering statin medication, like Lipitor.
