CoQ10; Ubidecarenone; Ubiquinone-10; Q-10
Water soluble coenzyme Q10 is a good fluidity powder. Due to its good solubility in water, it has a higher bioavailability than the standard form of Coenzyme Q10, and is therefore suitable for making beverages, foods, tablets and capsules.
The water-soluble coenzyme Q10 is prepared by including the coenzyme Q10 solid in a microcrystalline fiber material such as water-soluble starch or cyclodextrin, and adding an antioxidant such as vitamin E or the like, and a stabilizer such as triglyceride.
Coenzyme Q10 is an anthraquinone compound with an orange-yellow crystal at room temperature and a melting point of 49 ° C. It is odorless and tasteless. Soluble in chloroform, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, soluble in acetone, petroleum ether and ether, slightly soluble in ethanol, insoluble in water and methanol. It is easily decomposed under light and is reddish, which is stable to temperature and humidity. Coenzyme Q10 has physical properties that are easily soluble in oil and poorly soluble in water, and therefore have a wide range of applications in medicines and cosmetics. But it is difficult to add to a variety of foods and beverages.
Coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient synthesized by the human body. The amount of its synthesis will continue to decrease after we are 20 years old. By the age of 50, the amount of coenzyme Q10 in the body will be reduced by 50% compared to 20 years old. Coenzyme Q10 is relatively high in foods such as organs, beef, soybean oil, sardines, mackerel and peanuts.
Local experiments show that with the increase of age, the ability of skin collagen to resist the damage of oxidative stimuli such as ultraviolet rays is reduced, and long-term use of Coenzyme Q10 can effectively prevent skin photoaging and reduce wrinkles around the eyes, because Coenzyme Q10 penetrates into skin growth. After the layer, the photon oxidation reaction can be weakened, and the specific phosphorylated tyrosine kinase can be activated with the help of tocopherol to prevent oxidative damage of DNA and inhibit the damage of human skin collagen and elastic fiber by ultraviolet light irradiation.
Water-soluble coenzyme Q10 generally has two varieties: the content of coenzyme Q10 is 10% and 20%, respectively. The active ingredient of water-soluble coenzyme Q10 is coenzyme Q10, and its structural form is completely consistent with that of coenzyme Q10.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a nutrient that occurs naturally in the body. CoQ10 is also in many foods we eat. CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant, which protects cells from damage and plays an important part in the metabolism.
Why do people take CoQ10?
Although CoQ10 plays a key role in the body, most healthy people have enough CoQ10 naturally. There is some evidence that adding more — in the form of CoQ10 supplements — may be beneficial. Increasing age and some medical conditions are associated with dropping levels of CoQ10. But in these cases, it’s uncertain that adding CoQ10 will have an effect.
CoQ10 has been used to treat many different conditions. There’s evidence that CoQ10 supplements can lower blood pressure slightly. CoQ10 is also used to treat heart failure and other heart conditions, possibly helping to improve some symptoms and lessen future cardiac risks when combined with regular medications, but the evidence is conflicting.
How much CoQ10 should you take?
There is no established ideal dose of CoQ10. Studies have used doses of CoQ10 ranging from 50 milligrams to 1,200 milligrams in adults, sometimes split into several doses over the course of a day. A typical daily dose is 100 milligrams to 200 milligrams. Follow the instructions on the bottle or get advice from your doctor or a dietitian. Keep in mind that different supplement brands might have different ingredients and strengths.
