Good question. I do not have an answer.
Another question is whether there are anti-oxidants which have
been proved to be incorporated into the mitochondrial membranes.
CoQ10 has been touted to be such an anti-oxidant, but I saw a
paper within the last year or two which showed that radio-
labelled CoQ10 was not absorbed by the mitochondria of the lab
animals used (probably mice).
