Coenzyme Q10, also known as ubiquinone, is an important part of human cell metabolism and is gaining increasing relevance as a natural antioxidant. In its molecular structure, the coenzyme is related to vitamin E and vitamin K and is very popular as an ingredient in skin creams and care products.Q10 is a body own substance that is produced independently by the organism. The highest concentration is found in the mitochondria, which are also described as the power centres of the human cells.
In the mitochondria themselves, coenzyme Q10 is essential for cellular respiration. In addition, around 90 to 95% of all adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is formed there. Since ATP is the universal energy carrier of our cells, the human organism obtains all its energy from it. This is why organs with a high energy requirement, such as the heart, lungs, liver and nerve tissue, also have the highest concentration of Q10.
Body’s own production decreases with aging
Since the coenzyme is a fat-soluble substance, it can only be absorbed by the human organism to a limited extent when it is unprocessed. And even in food, the substance is only available in small amounts, such as in broccoli with about 0.9 mg per 100 g.
It should be taken into account that the body’s own production of the substance steadily decreases from the age of about 20. Therefore, experts recommend taking food supplements in addition to a balanced diet.
The special feature of ActiNovo Q10
ActiNovo has succeeded in encapsulating the body’s own substance in liposomes with the help of liposomal technology, thus ensuring reliable absorption in the human body. With the intake of just 5 ml daily, you already consume 100 mg of Q10!
The Q10 used by ActiNovo is obtained from fermentation. This ensures that only the nature-identical tras version is provided. The coenzyme Q10 itself is available in two forms: Ubiquinone (oxidised form) and Ubiquinol (reduced form). For the production of our liposomal Q10, we have purposely chosen the ubiquinone form, as this results in a stable and, above all, reliable product with a high absorption.
Ideal for use in smoothies and juices for that extra boost.
