" Studies showed that coenzyme Q10 protects skin cells from UV-induced damage and ageing."
What is Coenzyme Q10?
Discovered by Professor Fredrick L. Crane at University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1957, coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance naturally present in our body particularly in the heart, brain, kidney and liver. Also known as ubiquinone, it plays a key role in generating energy and protecting our body from free radicals. Without coenzyme Q10, there won't be enough energy generated for the vital organs in our body to function properly.
Our body's ability to make its own coenzyme Q10 declines with age. The natural sources of coenzyme Q10 include beef, fish, chicken, soybean oil, canola oil, nuts, sesame seeds, broccoli, cauliflower, orange, strawberry and egg. Frying reduces the coenzyme Q10 content in foods by 32%, while boiling helps preserve it.
“ I created Bio-Collagen Serum as a birthday present to my mum. This supreme anti-ageing serum is now the heart of my own daily skincare routine.”

The Health Benefits of Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 Improves The Condition of Heart
The human heart beats about 60 to 100 times a minute or 100,000 times a day, pumping blood to all the vital organs. Our heart needs a constant supply of energy to function. Studies in the United States, Japan and Italy showed that coenzyme Q10 improves the condition of heart.
Coenzyme Q10 Improves The Condition of Gums
Coenzyme Q10 have been used successfully for the treatment of gum disease for many years. A daily supplement of coenzyme Q10 improves the condition of gums. The recommended daily dose of coenzyme Q10 is 30 to 50 milligrams. It is a fat-soluble substance, best taken with foods containing fat.
Coenzyme Q10 Protects Skin Cells From Various Ageing Factors
Topical application of coenzyme Q10 prevents skin ageing caused by UV radiation, free radicals, pollution and oxidative stress. It also provides energy for cellular repair, increases the skin's ability to regenerate and replace the damaged cells. Studies showed that coenzyme Q10 works synergistically with vitamin E to protect the skin from UV damage and ageing while also reduce the risk for skin cancer. UV radiation is one of the major causes of wrinkles, dark pigmentation spots and other signs of ageing.
