There are essential anti-aging supplements on the market that deliver important antioxidant properties, but when it comes to maximum protection against aging, make sure to add nutrient Coenzyme Q10, also referred to as CoQ10. Coenzyme Q10 is an important antioxidant that's in every cell of the body. It's found in the cell's mitochondria and is in charge of cell growth and maintenance by regulating oxidation of fats and sugars. As an antioxidant it's also responsible for reducing cellular damage by removing free radicals which contributes to the skin's overall health and appearance. In addition to its anti-aging properties, CoQ10 keeps cells healthier and less likely to constrict and therefore can lessen pressure inside blood vessels and is consumed as an over the counter remedy to reduce blood pressure. CoQ10 levels dramatically decrease as we age making it important to add to the diet.

There are two forms of CoQ10, ubiquinone, and ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is an electron donor and ubiquinone is an electron acceptor. It's called a coenzyme because of its ability to rotate back and forth between the two types while remaining steady when energy is metabolized. Ubiquinol is what's found in the body naturally and therefore studies have shown it's absorbed better into the bloodstream over ubiquinone. Natural sources of CoQ10 are found in organ meet such as liver, kidney and heart as well as in beef. Vegetarians or Vegans can still get CoQ10 from vegetable sources including green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli. Supplements will label the sources used to be mindful of dietary restrictions.
