Fact: Adequate Coenzyme Q10 is essential for our cells’ generation of ATP energy.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules have been called the energy currency of the cells. ATP molecules have to be produced and stored for later use, similar to storing money in a bank. All of our cells contain ATP, and the ATP provides the energy for almost all cellular processes. ATP is, so to speak, what drives the cellular machinery.
CoQ10 molecules are vitamin-like substances that are an essential component of the oxidative phosphorylation process in the cells’ mitochondria; they are essential to the process that converts the energy from ingested carbohydrates and fatty acids into ATP [Schniertshauer 2016].
