Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble vitamin-like benzoquinone compound, which exists in various cells of the body and is responsible for converting nutrients into energy, which can fight free radicals, accelerate metabolism and slow down cell aging. In terms of function, it has a certain similarity with NMN currently popular abroad.
In June this year, "Coenzyme Q10 and other Five kinds of health food raw materials Catalogue" was officially implemented, and the filing of coenzyme Q10 and other five kinds of health food raw materials began nationwide. Up to now, only Zhejiang Province has successfully filed 4 products related to the second batch of raw material catalogue, all of which are Coenzyme Q10 soft capsules.
1. Reduce all kinds of fatigue
Modern people because of the pressure of work and life, often lead to abnormal work and rest, lack of sleep, suffer from fatigue problems, most of the temporary fatigue can be relieved after full rest, but with the growth of age, metabolism and eliminate free radical speed decline, resulting in slow recovery of fatigue.
Low blood coenzyme Q10 concentration may be associated with fatigue and autonomic neurocognitive symptoms in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, an observational study has found. Another small double-blind controlled trial showed that higher doses of coenzyme Q10 improved fatigue and physical performance after physical training.
2. Maintain cardiovascular health
Clinically, it has been found that cardiac muscle cells of patients with heart failure usually have too low concentration of Q10 compared with healthy people. Many studies have found that coenzyme Q10 supplementation can significantly improve heart failure.
3. Promote brain health
The brain is particularly vulnerable to oxidative damage due to its high fatty acid content and high demand for oxygen, which increases the production of harmful compounds that may affect memory and cognition. Coenzyme Q10 has been shown to protect brain cells from oxidative damage and reduce harmful compounds that can cause brain disease.
Coenzyme Q10 has excellent antioxidant effect. It has been found in studies that it can effectively neutralize free radicals, improve cell vitality, prevent skin aging, reduce wrinkles and repair collagen cells to a certain extent, and reduce the damage caused by ultraviolet rays to skin.
5. Sports nutrition
In the same way that oxidative stress affects muscle function and thus athletic performance, mitochondrial dysfunction also reduces muscle energy, making it difficult for muscles to contract effectively and maintain movement. Coenzyme Q10 may aid exercise performance by reducing oxidative stress in cells and improving mitochondrial function to increase muscle strength during exercise and improve fatigue after exercise.
6. Assisted reproduction
Coenzyme Q10 is directly involved in the process of female fertility declining with age due to a decline in egg quantity and quality, and supplementation helps reduce this age-related decline in egg quality and quantity. Similarly, male sperm are susceptible to oxidative damage, which can lead to reduced sperm count, poor sperm quality and infertility.
7. Vision health
Coenzyme Q10 plays an important role in promoting energy generation in human body. Mitochondria in retinal cells are very sensitive to toxic by-products produced by cell metabolism, so supplementation of Coenzyme Q10 can also help retinal health to a certain extent.
