Co-Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
CoQ10 acts as an essential component in the production of energy within every cell. When the body is lacking in CoQ10, there is a lack of fuel to process food into energy. Without adequate energy, our cells are not able to function properly, and are vulnerable to attacks from free radicals, leading to premature ageing.
The heart has the highest concentration of CoQ10 in the body. CoQ10 keeps the heart healthy by:
– Improving energy production in the heart muscleIncreasing oxygen utilisation andActing as an antioxidant
Tissues and cells involved in immune function are highly energy-dependent and require an adequate supply of CoQ10 for optimal function. The function of our immune system tends to decline with age. With the decrease in cellular energy, our immune system becomes weak and susceptible to age-related illnesses.
