Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a molecule that provides energy to our cells, serves as an antioxidant and is naturally present in the body.
It plays an essential role in the production of energy in our cells and is particularly important for physical activity.
Q10 can be obtained from foods such as red meat, poultry, blue fish (sardines, tuna, anchovies) or nuts (pistachios, walnuts, etc.).
Q10 levels in the human body are high during the initial years of life, but factors such as prolonged stress, smoking, poor eating habits or aging reduce its presence in tissues that need it, such as the liver or the heart.
From age 40 onwards, it is advisable to increase its presence in the body by taking supplements, always under a doctor’s supervision.
