Coenzyme Q10 (also known as CoQ10 & ubiquinone) is a naturally produced bodily enzyme and one of the most fundamental, potent antioxidants that is present in all cells.
It helps to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals - these are substances which seek to stabilise themselves by damaging and stealing tiny parts of our cells.
Products that utilise CoQ10 act as energisers and antioxidants for the skin, helping to reduce fine line & wrinkles. CoQ10 is vital in energy production in cells.
As we get older, the CoQ10 creation process slows down significantly, and our supplies diminish.
Kids - low levels of CoQ10
Teens - High levels of CoQ10 (the peak)
20 years and older - CoQ10 starts to decline at a rapid rate
Interesting fact - Professional athletes incorporate CoQ10 in their daily routine due to its assistance with energy-making in cells. Cells prized by athletes are muscle cells. CoQ10 is great for endurance sports such as cycling, running, swimming and triathlon.
Being a potent antioxidant, It acts as a shield to combat ageing.
Some Key Benefits of CoQ10 :
Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines - CoQ10 is great at using energy and nutrients to eliminate toxins. It gives older skin a more youthful, glowing look and feel.
Evens out skin tone - CoQ10 works to block tyrosinase (an enzyme needed to produce pigment) which helps with the production of melanin. CoQ10 fades & prevents dark spots.
Stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis - CoQ10 helps skin ‘bounce back’ and supports the bodies ability to produce collagen and elastin.
Reduces sun damage - The powerful antioxidant function of CoQ10 helps it to protect the skin at the molecular level from the damaging effects of the sun and from damage by free radicals.
Replenishes skin cells - Adding CoQ10 to skincare allows cells to better utilise other nutrients, leading to healthier skin overall.
More energised skin cells = healthier skin cells.
Helps reduce damage of free radicals - Since CoQ10 plays a huge rule in cell activity, it also means that the cells are more efficient in flushing out toxins such as free radicals. CoQ10 heals the damage caused by free radicals.
By adding CoQ10 to your daily topical skincare preparations, you can help to fight off the damaging effects of free radicals and maintain the beautiful, youthful radiance of your skin.
