Polyprenols are metabolized in the liver into dolichols.
Dolichols play a leading role in the dolicholphosphate cycle during formation of glycoproteins. They are involved in many physiological functions in our bodies and are found in all our cell membranes and connective tissues. They control interactions between our cells, support their immune status, ensure stability, production of enzymes and hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, insulin, adrenaline. They destroy viruses and heal wounds. Any of the diseases that occur from damage to our cell membranes are due to lose of dolichols. Stress, inflammation, infection, injury all can cause loss of dolichols. Coniferous polyprenols are natural precursors of human dolichols. By taking polyprenols regularly you replenish number of dolichols in your body.
