Q. Good morning, Dr. Judy. You have talked with us about the safety of Coenzyme Q10 supplements, and you have told us that the formulation of the supplement is decisive for the absorption of Coenzyme Q10. Shouldn’t we talk today about why we adults need daily Coenzyme Q10 supplements?
A. Yes, indeed. Coenzyme Q10 is very much needed and, at the same time, very little known by most people. Our bodies produce Coenzyme Q10 –called ubiquinone –, and Coenzyme Q10 is found in all of our cells except the red blood cells. That should tell us something.
