Levels of coenzyme Q10 in the body physiologically reduce with the passing years. However, nature provides a valuable ally to the normal biological functions.
What is Q10 100?
Q10 100 is a coenzyme Q10 supplement obtained through the natural fermentation of cane sugar. It is highly purified so as to ensure the complete absence of contaminants. Allergen-free.
Use and mechanism of action
Coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinone, is a lipophilic compound that is insoluble in water. It is essential within our body mainly due to the mitochondria, the cell organelles responsible for producing energy in the cell.
Today’s lifestyle is increasingly characterised by high levels of stress or environmental pollution, which not only lead to energy consumption, but can also promote the formation of extremely unstable and reactive molecules, known as free radicals, which are responsible for major damage to the structural elements of the cells, such as proteins, enzymes, DNA and lipids. It is in fact the free radicals that cause oxidation of LDL cholesterol, for example, with adverse effects that can affect the entire cardiovascular system.
Good cell respiration allows production of the energy needed for the body’s normal functions to take place.
Lastly, recent studies indicate that taking statins inhibits the synthesis of coenzyme Q10 and that supplementation could therefore be useful.
Suggested use: 1 capsule daily, with a large glass of water.
