Can Endurance Performance Be Improved with Coenzyme Q

Coenzyme Q, also known as CoQ10 and ubiquinone, can be found in the cells as a key component of the electron-transport chain. It also functions as an antioxidant and it has been used as a supplement by many individuals who are taking statin drugs. Some of the earlier studies regarding the effects of supplemental CoQ10 on athletic performance were positive; however, more recent and better designed studies have failed to show a significant performance benefit of CoQ10 supplementation. However, CoQ10 might be a desirable supplement for antioxidant protection for athletes.
