Ubiquinone is an essential vitamin-like compound that produces energy in the power plants of cells, i.e. in mitochondria. One can obtain small amounts of ubiquinone from food, especially from internal organs (liver, kidneys).

After that it gradually lowers. By the age of 40 the reduction is 30 %, by the age of 60 it is 50 % and by the age of 70 it is already 75 %.
