Coenzyme Q10 - New Liposomal Formulation
Everything you need to know about it
Coenzyme Q10 (Co Q10) or else ubiquinone is a large molecule with lipid structure.
It is called coenzyme because it is necessary for the body to produce other enzymes that serve to convert glucose and oxygen into energy production in cells, especially in mitochondria and in the rest of the body.
It was first discovered in the USA in 1957, yet its chemical structure was determined a year later.
In 1978, chemist Peter Mitchell was awarded the Nobel Prize for his contribution to understanding bio-energy transport and the role of coenzyme in it.
It is an antioxidant that is mainly synthesized in the cells of the human body.
However, it is found in several foods of plant and animal origin, but in small quantities.
Growing up, the human body loses its ability to produce sufficient amounts of this coenzyme.
Other factors besides aging are environmental stress, taking certain drugs (for example, statins), are some of the factors that may lead to a deficiency of CoQ10, a necessary substance for proper functioning the entire organization.
When this happens, there is a decrease in energy levels, a feeling of fatigue and weakness.
Its deficiency is likely to lead to a number of pathological conditions such as cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, diabetes mellitus, muscular dystrophy, chronic fatigue syndrome, periodontitis, tinnitus and obesity.
More than 50 studies worldwide confirm the beneficial effect of Co Q10 is improving heart function. It has the capacity to regulate arrhythmias and hypertension and can contribute to the management of coronary heart disease.
