According to Jo Serrentino, the author of "How Natural Remedies work", Coenzyme Q10 is a natural nutrient found in many foods and in human tissue. It is particularly abundant in the heart muscle and in the tissues of the gums. Coenzyme Q10 is involved in energy metabolism at the cellular level, and it has an effect on the total energy picture of the body and subsequently the functioning of organs, particularly the heart. CoQ10 actually increases the cardiac contractions without stressing the heart because it also lowers blood pressure. Research has shown that in many cases of heart disease there has been a deficiency in the concentration of CoQ10
CoQ10 is given orally as tablets or by injection has been used in the treatment of congestive heart failure, arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), and angina pectoris (heart pain). Periodontists have also been using it recently to treat gum disease.
