This is a substance that is similar to vitamins and present in every cell of our organism in varying amounts. It is directly responsible for energy production, regulates oxygen consumption, and slows down the aging process. The largest amount of Q10 is concentrated in the heart and liver. Coenzyme Q10 is ingested with food and also produced in our body; it has a powerful antioxidant effect. Antioxidants prevent the harmful impact of free oxygen, which according to scientists is one of the major causes of aging, and such conditions as heart diseases and cancer, as suggested by the free-radical theory of aging. It is known that at a young age a healthy human organism produces around 300 mg of Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) daily; however, after 30 years its production gradually wanes. Thirty years is the age of maturity, but unfortunately it’s also the age when we develop our first wrinkles, problems with the heart and other organs and start visiting the doctor more frequently. Besides, our body begins to accumulate fat, and simple physical activity – like going upstairs – becomes more and more difficult. Why does it happen? How did we lose the energy that we took for granted just a while ago? The reason is simple – not enough Q10!
