CoQ 10 (which stands for coenzyme q10) is present in every cell of the human body. A component of the electron transport chain, CoQ10 generates energy in the form of ATP
. 95% of the human body’s energy is generated thusly, and CoQ10 is the only molecule that can carry energy between the enzyme complexes that make up the different steps of this process.
Numerous scientific studies
have found CoQ10 beneficial in heart attack recovery, migraine prevention, parkinsons abatement,and radiation poisoning treatment. Additionally, studies indicate it lengthens lifespan. A Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami study showed that CoQ10 applied to cancer cells caused those cells to turn inward on themselves WITHOUT harming healthy cells. Traditional chemotherapy has a much more “baby with the bathwater” approach- healthy and cancerous cells are destroyed at the same time. Scientists are understandably optimistic about the unexplored uses of CoQ10 in treating cancer.
When used on the skin, multiple studies have found CoQ10 reduces fine lines such as crow’s feet without having negative side effects. University of Oregon’s Roland Stocker, Ph.D., writes that CoQ10 is “highly effective” in protecting your skin ultraviolet and free radical damage. Unlike many topical treatments CoQ10 is easily absorbed by the skin and stored: it builds up over time, and becomes more and more effective. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center this means it can offer long term protection and benefits.
