Why must coenzyme Q10 be supplemented? What are the benefits of coenzyme Q10?
What kind of nutrient is coenzyme Q10, which is very popular recently, what are the functions of coenzyme Q10, and who should take it?
Coenzyme Q10 is an enzyme substance. The human body produces coenzyme Q10 every day, participates in various biochemical processes of the human body, and maintains the normal physiological activities of the human body. If the human body lacks coenzyme Q10, the normal physiological activities of the human body will be affected, which will lead to the occurrence of various chronic diseases.
1. Free radical scavenging and antioxidant
Coenzyme Q10 can strengthen the intracellular membrane to resist the damage of external oxidative factors through the transformation of redox structure.
2. Resist apoptosis and protect the nervous system
Exogenous coenzyme Q10 can improve the lack of coenzyme Q10 in diseased tissues. Coenzyme Q10 can cross the blood-brain barrier and reduce apoptosis caused by cell lipid peroxidation damage.
3. Protect the cell membrane
Coenzyme Q10 is the cell's own natural antioxidant, an activator of cell metabolism, and has the function of protecting and restoring biofilm structure.
4. Delay skin aging
Coenzyme Q10 can improve the bioavailability of the skin, improve the antioxidant capacity of skin cells, and inhibit skin aging.
