What is CoQ10?
CoQ10 is a naturally occurring nutrient compound produced within your body that is stored in and assists in the function of mitochondria in your cells.  Mitochondria are essential towards nearly all functions of the body: they produce chemical energy which is then stored in ATP and sent out to the rest of the body. Mitochondria are widely regarded as the “powerhouse” of the cell. As people age, the CoQ10 levels within their body decrease, leading to many deficiencies within the body. 
What are the Health Risks of CoQ10 Deficiency?
A CoQ10 deficiency can lead to numerous different health risks. First off, a nutritional deficiency can be rooted in not getting enough CoQ10 into your diet. Other risks include genetic defects on CoQ10 synthesis, mitochondrial diseases which will lead to the body producing a lack of energy, as well as others.
