Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant produced naturally by the body, but levels generally decrease with age. CoQ10 is present in many foods including vegetables (spinach, cauliflower, broccoli), fish (trout, mackerel) and organ meat (heart, liver, kidney). It plays an important role in cellular growth and maintenance.
Research has found COPD patients have a CoQ10 deficiency, but there is no clinical evidence to support whether supplementation may help the disease.
