Peter Mitchell, Nobel Prize, University Of Wisconsin discussed on Overnight Talk


Step back for a moment. I know you've been working with purity products for several years on their co Q formulas. But now they feature coenzyme q ten which you say is just as important as resveratrol, especially for your heart health, and you also say in some ways that it's got even more evidence behind it. So let me ask you this who needs coq ten what exactly is it? Good for. Well, first of all, let's take a quick peek, a water coenzyme is a coenzyme is any substance in the body that speeds up the rate at which a chemical reaction takes place. It's like a vitamin in many respects. Well, coq ten is the nutrient that. Is responsible for the energy? That's the key word the energy that supplies, your brain, your heart, your liver, your kidneys. In fact, we need coq ten to literally convert all the food we eat into energy. Wow. That's amazing. Yeah. Well, that's what it's all about not only that. But it's a very powerful antioxidant. And I remember Mark let's go back to nineteen sixty three that's a while ago. Well, I was teaching for the first time physiology and nutrition, and I remember speaking about coq ten at that point. And at that point it had only been discovered six years before nineteen fifty seven at the university of Wisconsin where they were looking for what makes the heartbeat. Well, they found out that was co Q ten and that coenzyme q ten supplies that energy. In fact, by nineteen seventy eight a British biochemist named Peter Mitchell wins himself a Nobel prize for describing what he called a bio energetic energy. Created by co Q ten so we could say.
