Forest Vitamin – Coenzyme Q10 Powder + Measuring scoop
Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance that is called the “elixir of youth”, as it is responsible for the production of energy in the body’s cells. The highest amounts of coenzyme Q10 are found in the cells that use the most energy, including the heart, muscles, liver and kidneys. Q10 performs important functions in respiratory chain processes, while inactivating its by-products. This helps to maintain the normal energy output of muscle cells.
Coenzyme Q10 has two essential functions. Firstly, it is involved in the conversion of food into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide that provides a readily available source of energy used in many metabolic processes. This transformation takes place in the mitochondria, which are the ‘little energy factories’. Mitochondria are able to produce 95% of the ATP in our body. Secondly, coenzyme Q10 protects the heart and arteries from oxidative stress and inflammation by cleansing the circulatory system of harmful free radicals.
Coenzyme Q10 also prevents sluggish thinking, weakness, fatigue and premature ageing.
It has been found that Q10 levels in many organs decline significantly with age. In the heart muscle, its levels in the elderly are halved compared to the heart of young people. The preparation replenishes coenzyme Q10 reserves in the cells of the heart muscle, skeletal muscle and vascular musculature.
