The facts behind Q10
The facts behind Q10 Coenzyme Q10 is naturally produced in the body and makes an important contribution to the function of all body’s cells. The coenzyme, similar to a vitamin, is present in the whole body and can support numerous processes essential to life. In particular, Q10 is necessary in cell energy production in the mitochondria. It also acts as an antioxidant to ward off free radicals both inside and outside the cells. Free radicals accelerate skin aging and damage the cells. In addition, Q10 is found in cell membranes and the lipids on the skin’s surface, where it also fulfils its important task as an antioxidant. Q10 can protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays.
