Active Coenzyme Q10 - the cells natural catalyst for energy release from food. Coenzyme Q10 is an important antioxidant. Q10 - the body's own energy provider. After more than 30 years of scientific research we have found the key to our hidden energy potential. It is a vitamin-like substance called Co-enzyme Q10. Co-enzyme Q10 is vital to the process that takes place inside our cells - a process most commonly known as the energy metabolism. Nutrients from the food we eat are converted into pure energy, which is necessary for the functioning of virtually all the body's systems. Apart from the Co-enzyme Q10 we naturally get from our diet, our liver is able to synthesize only small amounts of the substance. Under normal conditions, our body is able to maintain adequate Co-enzyme Q10 levels, but as we age these levels drop, which is why many of us tire more easily. In order to counteract this reduction, we can take a Co-enzyme Q10 supplement like Bio-Quinone Q10. In fact more than two million people in the northern part of Europe already do. Nutrients are converted into energy inside our mitochondria. Co-enzyme Q10 deficiency is often the reason why our cells are not able to produce sufficient amounts of energy. This weakens the body's natural defence against disease and ageing. The substance is completely natural and present in the body as well as in food. Co-enzyme Q10 is stored in the mitochondria, a group of bean shaped structures inside our cells. Some cells contain larger amounts of mitochondria than others because they need more energy. This goes for the cells in the heart, liver and muscles. Co-enzyme Q10 converts fat, carbohydrate and protein and stores the energy in a molecule called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Whenever the cell needs to generate energy for muscle activity, protein synthesis and other energy demanding processes, it gets the energy from ATP. Therefore ATP is a very important molecule.
