What is Q10?
Coenzyme Q10 (also known as ubiquinone) is a vitamin-like substance which plays a vital role in the body’s energy metabolism. Coenzyme Q10 works in conjunction with enzymes (hence the name) to convert protein, carbohydrate and fat into energy. Tissues with a high energy requirement are particularly dependent on an adequate supply of coenzyme Q10. Coenzyme Q10 is also an important antioxidant within the body, protecting cell membranes from free radicals attack in a complementary manner to vitamin E.
Why you should take Q10 Pharma Nord
Q10 Pharma Nord may help increase energy levels, providing relief for people with fatigue problems. Q10 may also help to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Natural Q10 levels decrease with age and are also depleted by intense physical exercise or illness. In addition, coenzyme Q10 levels are depleted in patients taking cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins). Although statins can be very effective in lowering blood levels of potentially harmful LDL cholesterol, these drugs also interfere with the natural processing of coenzyme Q10 within the body.
How energy is created
Coenzyme Q10 exists in the mitochondria (“powerhouses”) of the cells. Those cells which require a great deal of energy have a higher density of mitochondria. This is the case with cells in vital organs. Inside the mitochondria, coenzyme Q10 ensures that energy produced from the combustion of nutrients is transferred to ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a molecule that stores energy in the cells. ATP is then used by the cell for all activities that require energy, e.g. muscle activity, digestion, brain activity, immune activity etc.
