The article focuses on the role of mitochondrial energizer, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), in the treatment of congestive heart failure. CoQ10 improves the heart's pumping rate and reduces the need for medications. It also acts as a stimulant, offering short-term improvement in heart muscle function. As an antioxidant, it is vital to energy production especially to the heart and brain. In addition, Ubiquinol CoQ10 is found to be a more effective treatment for heart disease compared to conventional drugs.
