Many people probably never heard of Coenzyme Q10 before, here are two little stories to get you know about it:
Most Energetic Professor
Coenzyme Q10 is discovered in 1957. In 1958, Professor Karl Folkers who has been doing research on Coenzyme Q10 is awarded with prestige chemical award – Priestly Medal. During his forty years of research on Coenzyme Q10 he insisted to take it consistently and he lived to the age of 91, which is extremely rare thing back in that era and hence the most energetic professor.
1978 Noble Chemical Award
As mentioned above that Professor Karl Folkers discovered Coenzyme Q10 and identified its chemical structure, but he didn’t fully understand the functions that Coenzyme Q10 can offer. It’s the Professor Peter D. Mitchell who has done series of research and established the use of Coenzyme Q10 in the field of health and beauty. He was awarded with the Noble chemical award in 1978.
What’s Co-enzyme Q10?
Basically speaking, Coenzyme Q10 is the substance that can stimulate the human cells and allow their energy to be fully released.
Normally Coenzyme Q10 will stop to generate inside human body from certain age of time due to the free radical effect. Therefore when Coenzyme Q10 starts to decrease in certain age, the metabolic capability of heart cells will dramatically decrease and make us feel body isn’t as healthy as it used to be.
Generally speaking, Coenzyme Q10 can stimulate various parts of our cells and generates energy which might have already stopped. Experiment has also approved that taking Coenzyme Q10 consistently has significant effect on curing Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and euro degenerative diseases. In terms of skin, by taking Coenzyme Q10 consistently can prevent skins from aging. It also allows to prevent sudden heart attack, acute myocardial infarction and angina pectoris.
Furthermore, studies have revealed that Coenzyme Q10 has apparent effect of antineoplastic along with curing peptic ulcer, Angina and relieving high blood pressure.
Coenzyme Q10 is also essential in terms of muscle function. Coenzyme Q10 allows human body to increase metabolic capacity which supply sufficient energy to body and brain. And since it increases the metabolic function, it is useful for diet.
