I love this nutrient for the results it brings to my skin & I’ve seen first hand what it does to energy levels. It’s one of the best for anti-aging. I’m talking about a co-enzyme called Ubidecarenone, also known as Coenzyme Q10 and Ubiquinone. We like to call it CoQ10.
Understanding CoQ10’s extraordinary anti-ageing effect
CoQ10 is a natural nutrient that works as an anti oxidant in the body & is therefore important for the health of virtually all human tissues and organs. It plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells & is an essential element for many daily functions. As an antioxidant it soaks up the damage caused by free radicals, which in turn are caused by stress, pollution, too much of the wrong foods and life in general.
In scientific trials, I have seen the significant difference CoQ10 can make to the heart. Coenzyme Q10 affects your body at all levels by re-energising the mitochondria – the cell’s’ energy source. In just six weeks they looked energised, brighter – younger.
Why add it to skincare:
Internally and externally 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. In fact as we age the levels of Coq10 in the body lessens and that effects our energy levels. CoQ10 is key for energy production and applying CoQ10 onto the skin helps boost the levels of this ingredient so it can prevent anti-aging, fight fine lines and wrinkles.
So many companies include it in their skin care products, and we certainly have done that with our CELL INFUSE natural & organic skincare. One of our most loved products is our CoQ10 Complex, which helps lock in products on the skin and protects it whilst adding moisture and nourishment at the same time.
