Coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinol and helps to generate energy in your cells. Though endogenous, meaning it’s produced naturally in our body, its level in the body decreases with age, or when other external factors reduce our ability to produce it, such as statins, nutritional deficiencies, increased demands, or oxidative stress.
CoQ10’s primary function is to generate adenosine triphosphate or ATP, which helps with sirtuin control and ensures correct energy transfer within cells.
There is a huge amount of clinical research on the benefits of using CoQ10 including:
Heart Health, CoQ10 supports a healthy heart by increasing ATP production and helping to limit oxidative damage.
Skin Health, being the largest organ in the body, it is exposed daily to oxidative stress and free radical damage. CoQ10 has been shown to reduce the oxidative damage caused by UV rays.
Brain Health, with mitochondria being the main energy generators in the brain, we need to support its function as we age. When mitochondria begin to function incorrectly it can lead to the death of brain cells, which can be seen with memory loss, brain fog or attention deficit. With the brain being highly susceptible to oxidative damage, due to its high demand for oxygen it’s important to ensure there is adequate CoQ10 to support memory, cognition and physical functions.
CoQ10 supplements can be taken in CoQ10 capsules or CoQ10 tablets and purchased online. Simply Nootropcis Elevate includes a daily active of 50mg.
