L-Carnitine and coenzyme Q10

This discussion will not be complete without mentioning the unique and important metabolic interrelationship and synergy between carnitine and coenzyme Q10 in their primary functions in the body. Carnitine is essential for delivering the fuel (fatty acids) to the mitochondrial matrix and coenzyme Q10 is essential in the terminal oxidation of the fatty acids to produce vital energy (as ATP). If there were a deficit in either one, the whole process of energy production would be compromised. They need each other and depend on each other to accomplish what they are supposed to do. If either one fails, the whole system fails. This is why they are referred to as the "Twin Pillars of Healing".
