What is Q10
Q10 is present throughout the body, which is an auxiliary catalyst involved in cellular respiration. Q10, like many vitamins, can be manufactured by the body itself, but as it ages (especially over 40 years old), it decreases and must be replenished from the outside. When the body’s Q10 is lower than a certain level, the body’s kidneys, heart, liver, pancreas, etc. will begin to have adverse effects.
Q10 is mainly found in organs or tissues that are metabolically strong and require high energy to maintain functioning, such as heart, kidneys, liver and skeletal muscle cells. Q10 is located on the inner membrane of the intracellular mitochondrium, which is the body’s generator that provides human energy, while Q10 is like a belt transmitted in the generator, helping to transport electrons. On the other hand, Q10 is structurally similar to fat-soluble vitamin K, with cell-stable antioxidant effects. In the past, many studies have reported that CoQ10 can inhibit the production of free radicals, reduce the damage of free radicals to mitochondriates and have the function of protecting cells, and can be used to improve cardiovascular diseases such as ischemic heart failure, arrhythmia, hypertension and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.
CoQ10 and Cholestasis
Intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) is a pregnancy-specific liver disorder that can have serious consequences for the foetus, such as an increased risk of premature birth, foetal distress, and perinatal mortality. One animal study found that CoQ10 reduced oxidative stress.
CoQ10 and preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a potentially fatal pregnancy complication marked by high blood pressure. According to one study, CoQ10 lowers the risk of developing preeclampsia in women who are predisposed to the condition.
