The human body is miraculous in countless ways, but perhaps the most compelling is its ability to create from within itself much of what it needs to survive and flourish. A case in point is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a substance made at the cellular level that aids in the conversion of food to energy. In addition, it is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals. These damaging particles destroy the membranes of cells, disrupt DNA and could even contribute to cell death. Many researchers also believe that free radicals are partially responsible for the effects of aging, including the lack of elasticity and the wrinkles found in the faces of older people.
You may have heard all of the buzz about free radicals, yet you may be a little vague about what they are. Simply put, free radicals are unstable molecules that are missing an electron. So focused are they on reclaiming an electron and becoming whole that they will steal what they need from a neighboring molecule, rendering it unable to function and starting a chain of destruction. Unlike most molecules that cannot withstand the onslaught of these marauding free radicals, antioxidant molecules stop them in their tracks by donating one of their electrons and sacrificing themselves in the process. By doing so, they bring the destructive chain to a screeching halt.
Our CoQ10 Supply & The Law of Diminishing Returns
Considering the vital work that antioxidants such as CoQ10 constantly do to thwart free radicals, it is not surprising to learn that scientists and skin-care specialists are focusing on the power of this vital CoQ10 enzyme to help reverse some of the damage to skin wrought by time and environmental factors. Under ideal conditions, your body can generate as much CoQ10 as it needs in order to make biological energy (ATP) within your cells and to fight destructive free radicals. However, certain factors such as stress, aging and some medications can hamper the CoQ10 manufacturing process. As a result, your cells’ ability to endure stress and to regenerate is curtailed.
This diminishment manifests itself in numerous ways throughout your body. Inflammation levels may rise to dangerous heights; a person’s ability to fight viruses and combat cancer and other diseases can be reduced. Vital organs such as the heart may not be able to regenerate and repair themselves as they once did. Your skin, the largest organ in your body, also feels the effects of CoQ10 depletion. Most people over 30 have less than optimal levels of this enzyme. Ultimately, this lack results in a reduced ability to make collagen, elastin and other molecules that help your skin to remain supple, smooth and wrinkle-free. Furthermore, lower CoQ10 concentrations mean that there are fewer “soldiers” on the front lines battling free radicals and working to repair damage to the skin.
Regain The Skin You Deserve
Once CoQ10’s qualities and benefits became known to skin-care experts, the race was on to include this enzyme in over-the-counter offerings that could be easily purchased by consumers. Products such as Lurevo’s CoQ10 Antioxidant Toner are designed to harness the age-defying qualities of this antioxidant enzyme and put them to work to transform wrinkled, sagging and tired-looking skin. In order to deliver the regenerating CoQ10 deep into your pores, Lurevo’s antioxidant toner is brimming with soothing and enriching Papaya, Cucumber, Sage, Chamomile and Aloe Leaf that work synergistically to moisturize, reduce redness and undo years of free radical damage at the cellular level.
Aging presents a wide array of challenges to the majority of us. Perhaps one of the most daunting is that it often forces people to accept assistance in doing tasks that they were able to carry out on their own not so long ago. Wearing glasses, taking medications for conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes, walking with the aid of a cane and hiring someone to do tasks that have become too difficult are just a few examples of the compromises that getting older can force upon even the most reluctant. With time, however, most of us accept that these small surrenders of autonomy are simply inevitable parts of getting older.
Like it or not, your skin needs the same consideration. Because its ability to produce collagen and elastin is reduced over the years, your facial skin is finding it increasingly difficult to withstand the onslaughts of time, weather, stress and other environmental factors as you age. Simply by applying a premium CoQ10 toner on a daily basis, you can give your face the best possible gift: extra reinforcements in the constant fight against damaging free radicals. The small investment you make in a high-quality product will pay for itself many times over as you watch your depleted, exhausted skin become supple and glowing with health once again. Give your skin the jump-start it needs, and your body will soon show you just how miraculous its powers of repair and regeneration can be.
