CoQ10, The Miracle Co-enzyme

Understanding CoQ10’s extraordinary anti-ageing effect

I can’t tell you how excited I get about this nutrient, having seen firsthand the powerful change it brings to skin, body, energy levels and mental clarity. It is, without a doubt, the Number 1 anti-ageing nutrient. I’m talking about a co-enzyme called Ubidecarenone, which is also known as Coenzyme Q10 and Ubiquinone. We like to call it CoQ10.

CoQ10 for energy and staminaCoQ10 is important for the health of virtually all human tissues and organs as it plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells. It is an antioxidant that mops up the damage caused by free radicals, which in turn are caused by stress, pollution, too much of the wrong foods, alcohol and life in general.

But from the age of 30 onward, our body’s production of CoQ10 and other antioxidants slows down. Older adults have been found to have less than half the naturally occurring levels of CoQ10 than our younger counterparts. This is believed to be a significant contributor to the typical loss of energy, stamina, and mental acuity associated with growing older.

Why does my body need CoQ10?

CoQ10 benefits for face and skinIn scientific trials, I have seen the difference CoQ10 can make. In just six weeks, people look energised, brighter – younger. Coenzyme Q10 affects your body at all levels by re-energising the mitochondria – the cell’s’ energy source.

It fights off the environmental threats that accelerate aging, making your skin dull, sagging, and wrinkled. It can create a youthful glow from the inside out, keeping the cells in your skin younger, longer for longer. But the magic doesn’t stop there.

Your body needs this nutrient at every level

CoQ10 for mental clarityCoQ10 works at all levels. Most organs function better with optimum levels: skin, brain, eye, heart, gums, immune system, and muscles. By taking good quality CoQ10 supplements you can increase your energy levels, improve cholesterol and blood pressure and even slow or reverse aging or disease.  My preferred supplement would be Bioceuticals Ubiquinol 150mg.

Research and clinical studies show that CoQ10 has a wide range of additional important health benefits, including:

  • Greater focus and clarity in thinking
  • Decreasing your risk of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s
  • Relief for migraine headaches
  • Improving performance for endurance athletes
  • Preventing skeletal decline
  • Speeding up the metabolism of fats in our bodies
  • The Number 1 anti-ageing nutrient you’ve may never heard of

After extensive research, I have learned that Ubiquinol is the most active and absorbable form of CoQ10 available, keeping your levels of CoQ10 high up to eight times longer.

Our CELL Infuse CoQ10 Complex,  locks in and protects all those exceptional ingredients.

Did you know that CoQ10 is one of the most promising tools in the anti-aging arsenal; could you use some in your life?

To your health, naturally!

Is Water the Secret to Healthy, Youthful Skin?

glass of waterHow many times have you heard a celebrity “reveal” that the secret to their youthful, radiant skin is drinking plenty of water?

Well guess what? They were wrong…

The secret to their flawless skin is more likely to be genetics and making the health of their largest organ a priority.

That’s not to say that water isn’t important – let’s not forget that water is the most essential nutrient for all our cells. Without it, we simply cannot survive. But to say that water is the answer to youthful skin is simplistic. It is essential that we keep our bodies hydrated in order to maintain healthy bodily functions such as digestion and toxin-removal, and this will certainly contribute to a healthy-looking complexion.

hydrated cellsHydrated cells are also essential for balancing the oil secretions of your skin, and dehydration can make our skin dry, flaky and even itchy. (Tip: to find out if you’re dehydrated, pinch the skin on your hand and see how quickly it springs back – thirsty skin will be slower to resettle.)

Tempting as it is, the idea that drinking two litres of water will “fix” tired, dull and dry skin is only half the solution. When you consume plenty of water – which you definitely should, every day – your other organs benefit the most, while your hard-working skin gets whatever is left over.

water laden vegetablesThe solution is to support your skin cells both inside and out.

A healthy, low-toxin diet full of water-laden fruits and vegetables, plenty of water, herbal tea and even coconut water forms the foundation for high-functioning skin cells. The next step is to add naturally occurring compounds that will help your skin maintain moisture.

Hyaluronic acid is a must in anti ageing skincare. It is a humectant, which can hold up to ten times its own weight in water, holding it in your skin cells.

hyaluronic acidWhen I created the Cell Infuse range, I set out to combine nourishment and hydration to ensure the best anti ageing products.

Cell Infuse Anti-Ageing Spritz combines hyaluronic acid with anti-oxidising vitamins C and E, plus aloe vera, olive leaf and licorice root extract to nourish, hydrate and rejuvenate your skin.

So yes, please, drink plenty of clean, filtered water but, remember, it is only part of the solution to vibrant, healthy skin.

Here’s to youthful, hydrated skin!
