Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like compound synthesized in the body from tyrosine and fatty acids, also supplied with food. It is an indispensable participant in the process of energy production, responsible for the mitochondrial transport of electrons in the respiratory chain. In addition, it has powerful antioxidant potential – it protects against oxidative modifications of lipids, proteins, and DNA and promotes the regeneration of other antioxidants.
Coenzyme Q10 is often referred to as the "elixir of youth". Supplementing its deficit may delay aging of the body, promote fatigue reduction, promote youthful vigor. It is worth to note that the endogenous production of coenzyme Q10 decreases with age, as a result of which the process of supplying the necessary energy to cells becomes complicated, neutralization of free radicals gets hindered and the efficiency of organs gets reduced.
There are two forms of coenzyme Q10: oxidized (so-called ubiquinone) and reduced (ubiquinol). The latter is considered to be active and more available. It supports faster and more effective restoration of the optimal level of coenzyme Q10, especially in the elderly or those with severe deficiencies. Our offer includes a wide range of preparations with Q10 coenzyme. We also offer access to supplements containing the coenzyme Q10 of the latest generation, labeled with the Kaneka Ubiquinol ™ mark.
