CoQ10, also know as Coenzyme Q10, is an essential antioxidant produced naturally in the body. It is essential for healthy cell function – cell energy, production, and maintenance. As you age or experience physical exertion, your Coq10 levels diminish. Fortunately, supplementation can help reinvigorate your levels of CoQ10 in a safe and healthy manner.
NOTE: CoQ10 converts to Ubiquinol in the body. For simplicity sake, we will use CoQ10 and Ubiquinol interchangeably. Studies show that there is no significant difference between supplementing with CoQ10 and Uiquinol. Both in affect, and absorption, studies show no difference.
Benefits of Healthy CoQ10 Levels
Maintaining healthy levels of CoQ10 will benefit oxygen utilization and energy production. Supplementation of CoQ10 has been shown to be effective in reducing the deterioration of the brain. Additional studies have shown a reduction in oxidative stress, aiding in long term brain preservation and disease prevention.
Noticeable benefits of CoQ10 supplementation is increased energy or reduced fatigue. 
CoQ10 has been listed as one of the top supplements available for managing migraines and reducing symptoms of depression. Certain diseases have been shown to lower natural levels of CoQ10 such as, Prader-Willi syndrome, male infertility, Peyronie’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. Supplementation may help regulate these lowered levels, and aid in reducing negative disease symptoms.
New research is showing CoQ10 supplementation to be highly affective in reducing symptoms of fibromyalgia. According to research done at the University of Sevilla (Spain), patience taking 300mg a day of CoQ10 noticed reduction of pain, tiredness in the morning, and fatigue to a p-value of .001 (which means the chance the findings were do to coincidence is only 1% – clinical standard is 5%). 
Safety and Dosing
CoQ10 is believed to be relatively safe for long term use. Clinical studies have been tested for as long as 18 months up to 1200 mg a day. Recommended daily dosage is usually between 50-200 mg/day, although many clinical studies dosed up to 300mg daily with little to no negative side effects. .
