A coenzyme is a compound that is necessary for the function of an enzyme. Coenzyme Q10 is a substance generated by the liver.
Coenzyme Q10 is present in the mitochondria (the cell’s energy centre) and it plays a role in the conversion of energy from food into ATP. This process provides us with the energy we need to perform exercise, along with other things. Cells that need a lot of energy such as heart, kidneys, liver and muscles contain quite a lot of mitochondria and therefore also a lot of coenzyme Q10. It is not uncommon for the production of coenzyme Q10 to reduce with age starting around age 20 1,2.
Coenzyme Q10 is also an antioxidant. When we use oxygen in the body, a by-product called free radicals are produced. During exercise, there is an increase in the amount of oxygen that circulates our body and therefore there is an increase in free radical production. Free radicals can attack muscles and connective tissue. To cope with these free radicals, the body uses antioxidants. Antioxidants is a collective name for vitamins and minerals that are capable of neutralizing and minimizing the effect that free radicals have in the body and Coenzyme Q10 is one of these.
The Etixx Coenzyme Q10 100 also contains iron. This helps to maintain normal energy metabolism and contributes to the normal transport of oxygen in the body. It also contains selenium which helps to protect cells from oxidative stress.
Who can benefit from taking the Etixx Coenzyme Q10 100?
The Etixx Coenzyme Q10 100 is recommended for endurance athletes due to its role in energy production and also for older athletes as Q10 production decreases with age 1,2.
