How you get it naturally

CoQ10 Recipe

It is a natural occurring substance that is present in many of our cells. It helps in the aerobic cellular respiration to help generate energy and good health in our organs. It also acts as a powerful antioxidant protecting our cells from free radicals and over exposure to oxygen.

As we age (starting around 20 years old) this substance decreases in production and can lead to problems with larger organs like the heart, liver and skin.
