CoQ10, otherwise known as Co-enzyme Q10 is a small molecule that our bodies make to generate energy in our cells. It also acts as an antioxidant, protecting our cells from oxidative damage (which leads to many health conditions). As we age however, our bodies produce less and less. This is one of the reasons why supplementation with CoQ10 is more popular with the elderly.
CoQ10 has been shown to lower blood pressure when taken in even relatively small amounts, and is a great alternative to conventional blood pressure-lowering methods. In addition, it can help regulate blood sugar levels in diabetics by increasing insulin sensitivity. When added to creams directly applied to the skin, CoQ10 has been shown to reduce damage caused by exposure to UV rays, and even helps to reduce wrinkles. Studies have shown that it may also help with protect agains certain brain and lung diseases.
Our own Arteria 100 contains CoQ10 and has been proven to neutralize free radicals and protects the heart from damage occurring from the natural aging process.
