Nature Made is the #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)‡ and Nature Made CoQ10 products are USP verified.
CoQ10 is naturally orange and found in nearly every cell of the body. CoQ10 is a vitamin-like compound needed to generate cellular energy in the mitochondria, and it's found in high concentrations in the heart, immune system, liver and kidneys. Containing antioxidant properties, CoQ10 helps protects cell membranes by defending them against free radical damage, and is a beneficial nutrient for supporting heart function†.
Moderate amounts of CoQ10 are found in foods, but the primary source of CoQ10 in the body is produced by the body itself. Levels decrease with age and some cholesterol-lowering statin drugs can reduce CoQ10 production, which is why supplementing may be helpful to replenish CoQ10 levels in the body.
