CoQ10 is a nutrient that is synthesized naturally in the body within the membranes of human cells and acts as a strong antioxidant that is required for the mitochondrial ATP synthesis – meaning it helps create ATP or energy. The mitochondria are the power houses of the cell. As we age, energy production can decline, which negatively affects egg growth and cell division. CoQ10 helps reboot the mitochondria to give them more energy. In fact, studies show it helps with sperm production and is thought to help women’s egg quality and growth. Studies show women who went through IVF and were poor responders were able to increase pregnancy rates with their own eggs with supplementation of CoQ10. Supplementation in these studies ranged from 300-600mg per day.
