Over the past few years, CoQ10 has grown in popularity. The trend has become very real with the supplement accounting for about $850 million within the nearly $37 billion supplement industry.
There are many reasons why CoQ10 has become incredibly popular over the past few years. Since it’s naturally found in the human body, many in the natural health movement prefer the supplement over an artificial supplement. It’s also found in plants, animals, and bacteria. In fact, it’s known as a vitamin by some sources, such as WebMd.com.

Another factor contributing to the popularity and growth of CoQ10 is its ability to boost energy. Some studies have shown how CoQ10 can help decrease oxidative stress in cells, which helps with mitochondrial functions. This leads to more energy in the cells.
Other Potential Benefits of CoQ10
Along with the versatility and ability to boost cellular energy, CoQ10 has become popular due to many other potential benefits. One of the main potential benefits is the ability of CoQ10 to treat heart failure.
