Naqu is an innovative supplement belonging to the category of “sulphurised” antioxidants.
The NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) is an amino acid that promotes the synthesis of glutathione and forms the glutathione-peroxidase enzyme, which has an important protective function towards numerous cytotoxic substances.
Selenium, a trace element, is an integral and essential component of this enzyme.
Alpha-lipoic acid is an essential enzymatic cofactor present in the tissues, where it has an antioxidant function both in its oxidised and reduced form.
It is involved in the synthesis of glutathione and promotes the functionality of vitamin E.
Glutathione is the most important antioxidant available to our cells; it is widespread in all tissues and especially concentrated in the liver, on which it exercises an important protective action.
The NAC also contributes to reducing the plasmatic levels of homocysteine, which is considered a dangerous cardiovascular risk factor.
It is traditionally known and used for its mucolytic and expectorant properties, thanks to which it is employed in the form of syrup.
Coenzyme Q10, in the form of water-soluble ubiquinol, is an essential element in the cells’ respiratory chain; it is a compound with high antioxidant action, especially so in the muscle and heart tissues, where its function is vital.
It is designed for its potential benefit on the brain (Parkinson’s disease - stroke) and in cancer.
Its supplementation has shown specific benefits in subjects affected by cardiovascular diseases such as angina pectoris and hypertension, in sportspeople, and in the elderly, to prevent neurovegetative symptoms.
People who take statins to lower cholesterol risk having a coenzyme Q10 deficiency.
Naqu is therefore indicated as a specific antioxidant supplement for athletes and people affected by cardiovascular diseases.
It substantially reduces the production of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs), thus boosting a strong anti-ageing action and fighting premature ageing.
People who use “statin” drugs can benefit from regular intake of the product.
People with chronic bronchitis and respiratory tract hypersecretions can use Naqu regularly, especially during the cold season.
Take 1 tablet a day, with a meal.
It can also be taken before prolonged physical activity.
