The Nobel Prize for an Epochal Discovery
In 1957, Dr Frederick Crane from the University of Wisconsin discovered the miraculous coenzyme from the mitochondrion of the beef heart and sent its discovery to the pharmaceutical company Merck, where it was isolated and named Q10 due to its chemical composition (quinone and 10 isoprene). It is also called ubiquinone, which means all-present, present in all body cells. Dr Peter Mitchell from Glynn Research Laboratories, Bodmin, Cornwall, UK, discovered its vital role in the production of cellular energy and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1978 for that epochal discovery. Why epochal? Dr Mitchell's discovery refers primarily to the transfer of energy among the cells of living organisms. That is, Q10 is a catalysator in the metabolic process of turning food into energy, which takes place in cellular mitochondria. Coenzyme Q10 is normally produced in all cells but it is most represented in heart and liver cells, as well as in cells of the immune system. Naturally, the aging process reduces the ability of producing coenzyme Q10, which also happens in case of bad nutrition or digestion disorders. Therefore it is today commonly used in slowing down the process of aging. It also restores energy and protects the cellular tissue in many diseases and misbalanced conditions.
How does Q10 work?
Why does our skin get wrinkled?
Dr Peter Mitchell receives the Nobel Prize in 1978 for his discovery of biochemical transfer of energy among living creatures' cells by means of Q10. Today, this miraculous substance, which can be used as a dietary supplement, enables an extension of life span, a better physical appearance and an improved capabilities in all efforts.EM>
The consequences include more frequent infections, quick tiring, cardiovascular disorders, reduction of capabilities and strength, and the process of aging is accelerated. The wrinkled skin as a consequence is only an external manifestation of those processes. The seamen used to bring that miraculous coenzyme from America, which was much in demand by ladies who wanted to preserve their good looks and smooth skin. This especially holds true for coastal areas, in which ladies noticed that their skin lost its smoothness and got wrinkled. With excessive exposure to sunlight, a fair part of Q10 is lost and the skin ages at a faster pace. Q10 compensates that and in combination with vitamin E protects the skin and functions as a powerful antioxidant against free radicals that affect the cellular membranes. Therefore, if you want to slow down the process of aging, to extend your life span and your vital functions, you should start taking Q10 as of the age of 35, as reasonably recommended today.
Who should take Q10?
From the media
|The Effect of Rizolip on Increased Lipids in Blood|
|It has been scientifically confirmed that red yeast rice reduces cholesterol and triglycerides in blood and has been an efficient dietary supplement in the traditional Chinese medicine for more than 1,100 years.|
|COENZYME Q10 AND CELL ENERGY|
|Proper nourishment, along with regular physical activity and avoiding harmful habits, is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. We know that food is, in a manner of speaking, our fuel: it ensures our survival, enables us to move, enables the functioning of the organs and provides energy for the organism as a whole. Everything we consume, after it is absorbed, ends up as energy inside the cell.|

|Dietary Supplements and Modern Way of Life|
|Nutritionists recommend that for an optimum balance it would be necessary to take five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables a day, which is difficult to achieve in continuity. This caused a boom of dietary supplements facilitating an overall balance of the organism, which bring vitality and the harmony of body and spirit.|
