Coenzyme Q10 Gives Humans A Strong Heart
It is called “universal nutrient” by Nobel laureate Linus Pauling. It can effectively increase physical fitness, protect cardiovascular system and prolong life. In recent years, after a series of studies, it has also been found that it may also improve human reproductive ability, and many doctors also suggest patients to supplement it appropriately. It is coenzyme Q10!
Coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinone 10 (UQ), is a substance synthesized by the human body, distributed in cells and an energy conversion agent. To put it simply, coenzyme Q10 is the “energy factory” of our body, with high concentration in parts with high energy demand such as heart, liver and kidney. The main function of coenzyme Q10 is antioxidant and scavenging oxidative free radicals.
Studies have shown that coenzyme Q10 supplementation can improve the clinical symptoms of patients with heart failure and reduce the incidence of adverse cardiovascular events, which may be beneficial to patients with coronary artery disease. Almost all evidence shows that coenzyme Q10 can improve myocardial function, so coenzyme Q10 is widely used in cardiovascular diseases.
However, recent studies have shown that oxidative damage is one of the important reasons for the decline of sperm quality. The level of coenzyme Q10 in seminal plasma and sperm has an important impact on the antioxidant damage ability of male reproductive system. Exogenous coenzyme Q10 supplementation is beneficial to improve sperm quality and fertility of infertile patients, and has a certain adjuvant therapeutic effect on male infertility.
