RE: [IP] CoQ10



Here is some info

http://my.webmd.com/hw/alternative_medicine/tp21195.asp

 Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitaminlike substance found in every cell of the
body.
It is made by the body and used by cells to produce energy needed for cell
growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the
body from damage caused by harmful molecules. CoQ10 is naturally present in
small amounts in a wide variety of foods but is particularly high in organ
meats such as heart, liver, and kidney, as well as beef, soy oil, sardines,
mackerel, and peanuts.

Coenzymes help enzymes in starting body processes, such as digestion.

CoQ10 has been approved in Japan since 1974 for use in heart failure. It is
available in the United States as a dietary supplement. It is also known as
also known as Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone, or ubidecarenone.
