KONZIM Q10 I STANIČNA ENERGIJA
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. Each of the 75 trillion human cells works as a small individual micro-entity and has its own organelles, just as an organism has its organs.
ATP is used as cell energy. At the same time, the nutrients that are oxidized in the cell release energy for production of new ATP, referred to as the body's “molecular unit of currency” because it is continually spent and gained (by means of nutrients entering the cell and used to produce ATP).
Cell energy is employed for 3 important groups of cell functions:
Coenzyme Q10 is a substance similar to vitamins and it is soluble in fat. It is present every cell of oxygen-dependent organisms and for this reason it is also referred to as ubiquinone (all-present quinone). For example, plants contain plastoquinone, bacteria contain menaquinone, while animals and people have ubiquinone or Coenzyme Q10.
A STRONG ANTIOXIDANT
Along with the well-known antioxidant vitamins and minerals – Vitamins A, C and E and minerals such as magnesium, zinc and selenium – Q10 also plays an important role as a powerful fighter against free radicals, unstable molecules formed by oxidation processes in the cells. If the amount of free radicals exceeds the amount of antioxidants, this can lead to the development of a number of disorders such as cardiovascular and malignant diseases, accelerated aging process etc.
The heart muscle is particularly sensitive to intense physical strain and higher energy expenditures. For example, climbing stairs expends 17 times more energy than lying in bed. CoQ10 helps maintain energy in the mitochondria of the heart muscle for longer periods of time, ensuring better blood perfusion and oxygen supply. As a result, CoQ10 has found wide application as supplemental cardiovascular therapy, especially in Japan and the USA, where it is already being manufactured in 400 mg doses.
Scientific research confirms that if Coenzyme Q10 is taken in quantities larger than 100 mg per day, it helps reduce migraine occurrence, improves sperm motility (asthenospermia) and retards the progress of Parkinson's disease. Other research has shown that it has beneficial effect on degenerative diseases of the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease.
Locally, Coenzyme Q10 is used for skincare and retardation of the skin's aging process (revitalizes, reduces wrinkles). It stimulates blood perfusion and it is one of the indispensable ingredients in mature skin care. It has also found wide application in gum protection products and especially in treating advanced periodontosis.
HOW TO USE COENZYME Q10
The best way to use it is to combine it with other strong antioxidants, which secures optimum synergistic effect.

|Coenzyme Q10 – the Modern Panacea*|
|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).|
|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.|
