coenzyme Q10

is a vitamin like substance that is present inside every cell of our body. Co-Q10 is responsible for cell energy production, growth, and maintenance. It also acts as a powerful antioxidant (free radical scavenger). Taking vitamin E can help recycle Co-Q10 within the body once it has bound to a free radical, thus increasing overall levels.
