Coenzyme Q10 is a lipid found naturally in our body that is depleted with age.
Natural coenzyme Q10 contributes to:
CoQ10 was discovered by Fred L. Crane of the "Madison Institue", Wisconsin, more than half a century ago and has been identified as an electron transport in the mitochondria. The chemical structure of this liposoluble substance look like vitamin E and is therefore able to act in the lipid portion of the cell. There are 10 coenzyme "Q" (a letter referring to the quinone group), but coenzyme Q10 is the only coenzyme encountered in human tissues. It can be synthesized in the body from phenylalanine, tyrosine and vitamins B1, B6, E and folic acid.
However, the liver's ability to synthesize coenzyme Q10 decreases with age. The reference value for the blood level of Co Q10 is 0.6 to 1.8 μg / ml.
