CoQ10 soluble antioxidants protecting the skin from UV light


A nutrient and fat-soluble vitamin like substance that is found in every cell of the body. In addition to its role as an energy carrier for the mitochondria, CoQ10 plays an essential role in cellular function as an antioxidant located in the membranes in close proximity to the unsaturated lipids. It is a primary scavenger of free radicals, and acts in a synergistic way with Vitamin E (tocopherol) in cell membrane protection against oxidative stress. It may protect the skin cells against the photoaging process induced by free radicals. Synthesized by the body it starts out at low levels when we are young reaches its peak in young adulthood and shows a gradual decline after the age of 20. CoQ10 and Vitamin E are the only oil soluble antioxidants that are found in the epidermis and may assist in protecting the skin from UV light.
