While there are plenty of anti-aging products on the market today, many of them don’t come from a vitamin or supplement point of view, as most of them are in the form of creams, serums, and lotions. Idenbenone is a supplement designed to improve the skin and fight the signs of aging, but is it worth it? We will take a closer look to find out more.
Idebenone is a synthetic compound made to imitate one of the most important biochemicals, Coenzyme Q10. It is thought to be one of the safest antioxidants known to man, and since it is a cerebral stimulant rejuvenates the whole body. There are several benefits to using this product, including: anti-aging, increased energy, cognition enhancement, organ protection, and protection against excitatory amino acid neurotoxicity. It works on the mitochrondrial level to improve circulation and work against free radical damage. When circulation improves, and free radical damage slows down or stops, one can have more than just healthy skin, but healthy internal organs, as well.
- The product offers more than just anti-aging benefits.
- This product is relatively inexpensive and available from many different vendors.
- Even though the product is considered one of the safest antioxidants and is a synthetic version of an important biochemical, there are some potential side effects users should be aware of, including: dizziness, headaches, anxiety, difficulty sleeping or changes in sleep patterns, and gastrointestinal disturbances. Though these should be mild and lessen over time, this could be a major deterrent in using the product.
- As a result of the potential side effects mentioned above, this supplement should not be taken during the first trimester of pregnancy or at any point while nursing.
The Bottom Line
While this product may induce side effects, it is clear that these side effects are not considered harmful in most cases. With the additional benefits besides the anti-aging effects, there are many other reasons why a person may consider using this supplement. While it sounds great, we do not have the scientific proof we need to see in order to verify the claims this product makes. Since it is made and marketed by several different companies, it is hard to say which, if any, will provide the best results. While we are not trying to discourage you from trying this product, we believe their may be better ones out there on the market which will provide the results, and the proof of those results.
