With healthy cells – a healthy body
Ubiquinol – the cell vitamin

The active form of Coenzyme Q10 can bring numerous benefits for the health of the older generation

 

Older generation? People are happy to belong to the older generation, but no-one wants to be 'old'. The challenge is to remain healthy well into old age. Key elements for this are a balanced diet combined with regular physical and intellectual activity. And the vital substance Ubiquinol can also play an important role.

Many people are aware of the presence of Coenzyme Q10 in anti-ageing creams. However, what most people do not know is that this substance is not useful only in the area of cosmetics. It is also a vital element in our bodies, essential for energy production and for protecting human cells. The active form, and the most easily assimilated by the human organism, is called Ubiquinol.

Ubiquinol is present in almost all the body's cells and the muscles of the heart, in particular, contain very large quantities. This is why Ubiquinol is called "the heart's vitamin".

 

Our heart is a quite exceptional organ. It beats some 60 to 90 times a minute for a healthy adult. And in that time it pumps around 5 litres of blood. When the heart is permanently weakened, for example after a heart attack or disease, it is incapable of powering sufficient blood throughout the body. This results in exhaustion, breathlessness and tiredness even in accomplishing the most trivial tasks.

Food supplements to combat side effects

Many people take drugs that are called statins in order to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood. These 'fat reducers' can inhibit the formation of 'bad' cholesterol in the liver by preventing the enzyme necessary for cholesterol production from working. This enables the liver to absorb and metabolise more cholesterol in the blood. Too high a level of LDL, the 'bad cholesterol' in the blood is a risk factor for cardiovascular disorders such as arteriosclerosis.
