In brief: CoQ 10 supplement

The antioxidant ubiquinol (coenzyme q10) is needed in every cell of your body - it is used in basic metabolic processes.
It is low in some chronic conditions, but it's not clear that taking supplements has benefits - there are a variety of inconclusive studies that suggest some benefits in controlling blood pressure, diabetes, and improving heart function. 100mg/day is unlikely to cause harm.
