Q10facts - the Largest CoQ10 Knowledge Base on the Internet

About Richard Morrill

My name is Richard Morrill, and I am the editor of this web-site and also of the website seleniumfacts.com. I have earned a B.A. from the University of Maryland, an M.S. from the University of Southern California, an M.L.S. from Indiana University, and an Ed.D. from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. I am, by profession, a research librarian. I worked for many years in the Reference Department of the Main Library at the University of Massachusetts, and, for the past many years, I have worked in a branch library of the Lake-Sumter State College in Florida. My interest in Coenzyme Q10 is longstanding. Coenzyme Q10 molecules are fat-soluble molecules that are both synthesized in the body and ingested in the diet and in supplements. Coenzyme Q10 is synthesized in the body in the same biological pathway as cholesterol. However, bio-synthesis of Coenzyme Q10 begins to decline once humans reach their adult years. The reduced production of Coenzyme Q10 cannot be compensated for in the diet in any practical way. CoQ10 supplementation is a necessity.
