Co-enzyme Q10, naturally produced in our body and contributes to the activity of each cell in our body. It also acts as an antioxidant, Co-Q10 is found in the cell membrane and lipids on the skin surface and protects against free radicals inside and outside our cells. Free radicals damage cells and accelerate the aging process. Co-Q10 also protects the skin from the damage caused by UV sunlight.
The two most important roles of Co-Q10 in the human body are energy production and cellular protection.
American scientist Frederick L. Cran discovered Co-Q10 in 1957.
