Idebenone is a man-made product similar to coenzyme Q-10.
Idebenone is a synthetic analogue of ubiquinone (also known as Coenzyme Q10), a vital cell antioxidant and essential component of the Electron Transport Chain (ETC). It has been proposed that by interacting with the ETC, idebenone increases ATP production required for mitochondrial function, reduces free radicals, inhibits lipid peroxidation, and consequently protects the lipid membrane and mitochondria from oxidative damage. More specifically, idebenone is thought to transfer electrons directly to complex III of the mitochondrial ETC, thereby circumventing complex I and restoring cellular energy (ATP) generation. Due to its ability to reduce oxidative damage and improve ATP production, idebenone was originally investigated for its potential use in Alzheimer's Disease and other cognitivie disorders. Lack of improvement in cognitive function halted its production for these conditions, however it continues to be investigated for use in other conditions associated with mitochondrial damage. Idebenone is currently only indicated for use by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of visual impairment in adolescent and adult patients with Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy (LHON). LHON is a mitochondrially inherited degeneration of retinal ganglion cells, resulting in acute central vision loss. Due to its biochemical mode of action, it's thought that idebenone may re-activate viable-but-inactive retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in LHON patients.
Idebenone is used for Alzheimer's disease, liver disease, and heart disease; as well as a number of inherited disorders including Leber's disease (an eye condition), mitochondrial encephalomyopathies (nerve and muscle disorders), and Friedreich's ataxia (a nervous system disorder that worsens over time, producing gait and speech problems, and eventually leading toward heart disease and diabetes).
How does it work?
Idebenone seems to have antioxidant activity, and appears to protect a wide variety of cells from oxidative damage.
Idebenone is an antioxidant that protects cells from environmental damage, improves the appearance of fine lines, reduces dryness, and smooths skin texture. Studies show that Idebenone is more powerful in preventing cell damage than Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10, Kinetin, and Alpha Lipoic Acid (Source). Although it is very similar to CoQ10, it's more water soluble and has a slightly different anti-oxidant profile.
Idebenone, one of the most cutting edge anti-aging antioxidants on the market today, shields skin from environmental damage, improves the appearance of fine lines, reduces dryness, and smoothes the texture of the skin. Based on tests comparing it to other antioxidants like vitamins C and E, Idebenone is being called "the most potent and effective antioxidant" known and tested in skin care today. Idebenone is especially potent at preventing sun damage; when applied to the skin before exposure, it reduces the number of sun-damaged cells by 38 percent.
Best for: Anti-aging, wrinkle reduction, sun damage prevention, dull or dry skin.
