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.


The essential spark for producing the energy in our cells
This vitamin-like substance is present in every cell of the human body and regulates how they perform. More than 95% of our energy is produced with the help of Ubiquinol. The heart, the brain, the muscles, etc. - all depend on this energy to perform their essential functions. The body of a young healthy person with a healthy balanced diet will, in principle, create sufficient Ubiquinol or convert Coenzyme Q10 into its active form, Ubiquinol. But with advancing years, this natural production diminishes. A forty-year old person has some 30% less Ubiquinol in the muscles of the heart than a 20 year-old. A food supplement is thus clearly a suitable booster. Not only do our bodies absorb Ubiquinol better and more easily than conventional Coenzyme Q10, but Ubiquinol also acts much quicker. Finally, whereas conventional Coenzyme Q10 requires activation, Ubiquinol requires none.


Natural protection for cells
As Ubiquinol is a powerful anti-oxidant it protects the body's cells from the action of free radicals. These result from the body's metabolic operations under the influence of oxygen. And there is a significant increase in the number of free radicals as we grow older. They accelerate the ageing process of the skin and favour the appearance of new diseases. Ubiquinol acts against the appearance of pigmentation spots on the skin and several age-related pathologies, and ensures that the cell's membranes remain elastic and flexible.


Acts against the signs of ageing
Over one hundred scientific studies have shown beneficial results from Ubiquinol-based food supplements in areas as diverse as intellectual performance, the health of our hearts, the body's immune systems, the metabolism of fats and in attenuating tendencies to inflammation within the body.


The memory, the eyes and the central nervous system    
It has been proved that Ubiquinol improves man's capacity for learning and memorising and could even be able to retard the progress of certain neurological afflictions when these are diagnosed very early. Alzheimer's disease could be one of these. Ubiquinol is also important for the eyes. The retina is very vulnerable to free radicals. To fight against them, it needs plenty of anti-oxidants such as vitamins C and E and the Coenzyme Q10. Ubiquinol, the vital and active substance from Coenzyme Q10, regenerates the vitamins, protects the retina against oxidation and prevents the formation of black spots in the eye.


Blood pressure and a healthy heart
Large numbers of studies have shown that hypertension and heart failure are frequently associated with a lack of Ubiquinol. In addition, patients treated with statins suffer from a lack of this vital substance because such drugs, prescribed to lower cholesterol levels, also retard the natural production of Ubiquinol in the cells. Taken on a regular basis in the form of a food supplement, Ubiquinol can help to reduce hypertension and to improve the rhythm of the heart.  It can also help to reduce the undesirable side effects inherent in the taking of statins - cramp, trembling and muscular pains.

 

Protecting the skin
Anyone who uses anti-ageing cosmetic creams knows about Coenzyme Q10. The vitamin completes the energy reserves in the skin's cells and protects the cell membranes from the actions of free radicals. Ubiquinol penetrates deep into the lower regions of the dermis and thus protects the skin from the damaging actions of the sun's ultra-violet rays.
