The process of aging involves a variety of factors and processes. One of the most broadly recognized perspectives is "The Mitochondrial Theory of Aging."
This theory suggests that damage to mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA contributes to the aging process in humans. (1)
Your mitochondria are tiny compartments found within your cells, known as the "cell power house." These are responsible for generating energy in the body.
Unfortunately, mitochondrial damage is inevitable...And oxidative damage is perhaps the biggest contributor.
Oxidative damage occurs when there is an imbalance between free radicals and your body's ability to neutralize their damaging effects through antioxidant support.
However... One of your body's strongest defenses against this damage is Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10.
When we are young, CoQ10 is produced naturally by the body. And this antioxidant safeguards the mitochondria by protecting cells from oxidative damage and neutralizing the harmful effects of free radicals.*
But... CoQ10 production declines as you age, beginning as early as age 20. (2)
Increase the level of CoQ10 in your body using Jigsaw CoQ10 Ultra, as active Ubiquinol. *
