Mitochondria are the parts of your cells responsible for creating energy, which allows cells to perform their functions. Mitochondrial health is very important for reproductive success and fertility. Because your eggs have the highest amount of mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA, any threat to the mitochondria can significantly impact egg quality and fertility.
CoQ10 is particularly important because it protects against oxidative stress, most of which is produced by the mitochondria. Supplementing with CoQ10 at a dosage of 100 to 600 milligrams (mg) per day is associated with improved egg quality and maturation and pregnancy outcomes in older pregnant people and those with PCOS, multiple miscarriages, preeclampsia, and poor ovarian reserve. *
