What is CoQ10?

CoQ10 or Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance that is naturally found in every cell of our body. It is a natural antioxidant that fights off free radicals which contributes to the aging process. It also assists in producing needed energy in order to help the heart, kidneys and liver. However, CoQ10 depletes with age. If you have noticed your skin is young and glowing when you are in your 20’s that is because the CoQ10 in your body is in its peak. But once you’ve reached the age of 30, the level of CoQ10 in the body starts reducing.  Stress and other medication can also contribute in reducing CoQ10 in the body. That’s why CoQ10 supplements are recommended.

Benefits on our skin

As we all know, free radicals are unstable molecules that damage our skin as a result dryness and wrinkles appear. Environmental factors like too much exposure to the sun, pollution, smoking, etc. can increase the formation of free radicals. This is where CoQ10 comes in. The antioxidant property of CoQ10 helps overcome free radicals. And CoQ10 also helps increase the level of collagen and elastin in the body, which are responsible for maintaining the elasticity and flexibility of our skin.

Make sure to help your skin get the proper nutrition by staying fit and healthy and at the same time use skin care products that has CoQ10 as their main ingredient.
