The coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance, which is produced by our bodies. Q10 is responsible for the metabolism of all the cells in our body and supplies our skin cells with energy.
Q10 serves as our body’s own radical scavenger. It neutralises the aggressive oxygen compounds that attack our connective tissue and make our skin slacken more quickly.
Nutrition for the skin
Q10 is contained in many foods: for example, foods such as meat, (beef, poultry), sea fish (especially in sardines), eggs, vegetable oil, nuts, almonds, soya, potatoes, green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, and pulses, are especially rich in Q10.
