Mitochondrial dysfunction

Mitochondrial dysfunction is the loss of efficiency in the process of ATP energy production.  As such, mitochondrial dysfunction is a factor in the ageing process and in virtually all chronic diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Coenzyme Q10 is an essential component in the mitochondrial production of ATP energy.
