Co Q-10 is naturally found in the energy producing cells of the heart. Each heart beat not only pumps nutrient-rich blood to the extremities, but it delivers blood to the tissues of the heart as well. Levels of Co Q-10 in the heart decline approximately 30% from our early 20s to early 40s, and by more than 50% in our late 70s. Supplementing your natural levels of Co Q-10 can support heart health as those levels decline over time.**
Lutein is a type of pigment called carotenoids that are found in many fruits and vegetables. It cannot be produced in the body, but Lutein from the diet is stored in the eyes, particularly in the macula. The macula is the area of the retina with a high concentration of specialized photoreceptor cells and is responsible for sharp focus on objects straight in front of you. With so much light entering the eye, the retina is an area of high oxidative stress. Lutein helps filter out high energy blue light from the sun and artificial light before it reaches those important photoreceptor cells.** Blue light may otherwise induce oxidative stress and possible free-radical damage to the eyes.**
As with Co Q-10, the body’s stores of Lutein can decrease as we age. Our supplement uses a specialized form of Lutein and Zeaxanthin that has specific benefits in addition to supporting healthy vision, including helping to alleviate occasional eye strain from digital device use and promoting skin elasticity.** Both Co Q-10 and Lutein also have antioxidant properties, which helps to neutralize free radicals that can cause oxidative stress and damage cells.**
There are many factors that affect how we age but choosing the right supplement can give you the nutritional support you need to live life to the fullest.
