Idebenone – the antioxidant star
Combining the power of energy supplements. If you are looking to increase brain power and combat free radical damage, Idebenone is a simple and effective to rejuvenate both body and mind.
It’s a fact that not all energy supplements and cognitive enhancers are alike. The source of Idebenone’s potency to increase brain power and combat free radical damage (a key factor behind the aging process) lies in its ‘life enhancing’ ingredient. Idebenone is a synthetic variant of what’s been hailed as ‘one of life’s essential bio chemicals - the antioxidant busting compound known as Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10.
There is nothing synthetic about the CoQ10 found in our bodies. It occurs naturally and features in every single cell. CoQ10 is an energy powerhouse found in many of our vital organs, including the heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas – and the cells that make up our immune system.
CoQ10’s antioxidant properties are vital to the body’s health and well-being, as antioxidants play a vital role in fighting harmful free radical molecules. Free radicals damage cells and proteins - and accelerate the whole aging process - through the natural cycle known as oxidisation.
Looking at CoQ10’s properties in more detail, we see it forms the antioxidant element of the lipid – or fatty – membranes that surround every cell. Delving even deeper, we find that CoQ10 is also a component of our cells’ organelles (also termed ‘little organs’), including mitochondria and microsomes.
Mitochondria is a power producer in cells, with CoQ10 acting as a major force behind a process known as the Electron Transport Chain (ETC) within the mitochondria. Underlying the importance of this process, most of the oxygen we breathe is actively used as part of the ETC to produce a fundamental energy source known as Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bio-energy. It’s ATP bio-energy that drives our body and mind, as the energy source for almost everything we do in our daily lives.
Idebenone – much more than just a powerful anti-oxidant
Idebenone is an enhanced version of the crucial anti-ageing compound CoQ10, which fights damaging free radicals and helps build healthy cells by boosting mitochondria development. It's said to have 100 times the anti-oxidant power of Vitamin E.
PRECAUTIONS: Typical Idebenone dosage is 30mg two or three times daily. If this level induces side effects such as gastrointestinal irritation, dizziness or headaches, simply lower the dosage and build up to the requisite amount gradually.
Directions: Take 2 capsules, one to three times a day.
Description: Idebenone is a synthetic variant of Coenzyme Q10, having all its protective qualities and more. Idebenone is also a powerful anti-oxidant, and known to be 30 to 100 times more potent than vitamin E or vinpocetine.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for use by pregnant or lactating women.
Serving Size: 1 capsule
Other ingredients: Talcum, Magnesium Stearate, Micro Crystalline Cellulose-Phosphate, Aerosol, Starch, Sodium Starch Glycolate.
Antiaging and wider benefits
The importance of Idebenone’s CoQ10 and mitochondrial enhancing properties, in relation to antiaging, have been underlined in studies comparing the heart tissues of the young and old. While not surprisingly, the younger hearts were found to have little or no mitochondrial dysfunction, older hearts were shown to have the exact opposite and severe dysfunction. This resonates with the fact that, as we grow older, our cells and organs become more and more susceptible to mitochondrial energy depletion.
