Coenzyme Q, also known as ubiquinone, is a coenzyme family that is ubiquitous in animals and most bacteria (hence the name ubiquinone). In humans, the most common form is Coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinone-10.
Coenzyme Q10 is one of the most significant lipid antioxidants, which prevents the generation of free radicals and modifications of proteins, lipids, and DNA.
Studies have shown this herb to have the following actions:-
Regulates lipids metabolism: CoQ10 decreases low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) and total cholesterol (TC) by down regulation of HMG-CoA reductase activity and increases cholesterol efflux.
Insulin sensitizer: CoQ 10 ameliorated both insulin signalling dysfunction and inflammation in the adipose tissue by improving beta cell function.
Promote heart health: CoQ10 help treat to heart failure by improving cardiac diastolic dysfunction (increased E:A ratio), increasing ATP production and limiting oxidative damage
Antioxidant: Inhibits lipoprotein oxidation in the blood vessel wall and the formation of atherosclerotic lesions by scavenging free radicals.
Increases energy production:- Increase cardiac muscle ATP production to promote healthy functioning of heart and reduces statin-induced myalgia.
