CoQ10 is a very powerful antioxidant, capable of preventing, neutralizing, and even repairing damage done by free radicals. A by product of the natural process of cellular oxidation, free radicals are unstable molecules that scavange and damage the cells with which they interact. Free radical damage is known to be the basis of many health problems, particularly those most associated with aging. Topical application of this anti-oxidant promotes a healthier, more vital and younger appearance to the skin.
