  • Contributes to cardiovascular and cognitive health
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • General health and wellness
  • Potent antioxidant benefits and regenerates other antioxidants Vitamin C & Vitamin E
  • Helps to compensate for the age-related reduction in the body’s ability to convert CoQ10 into Ubiquinol
  • Protects cells from free radical damage

What is Ubiquinol?

Ubiquinone is converted within our body into Ubiquinol, the potent anti-oxidant portion of CoQ10.
Ubiquinol is already in its reduced form as a potent anti-oxidant. Ubiquinol inhibits protein and lipid oxidation in cell membranes, and helps to minimize oxidative injury to DNA.  Keep in mind there is every indication that the Ubiquinone form has benefits other than those of Ubiquinol.

To take full advantage of the benefits of CoQ10, the dosage should include both forms (the traditional CoQ10 called Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol), and then according to age as to which one you take the most.

Who should take Ubiquinol?

Due to its established role in the body’s energy production process, Ubiquinol should increase energy, stamina and general wellness in most people, especially in those who cannot efficiently convert CoQ10 into Ubiquinol.  It is believed that those who are 40 and older or are affected by age-related health conditions may benefit from this pre-converted form of CoQ10 more than those who are younger.  Additionally, because Ubiquinol levels have been shown to be reduced in older individuals and those with cardiovascular, neurological and liver-related conditions.

How Does Ubiquinol CoQ10 Work?

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a natural nutrient that's found in the mitochondria. Called a “coenzyme” because of its unique ability to participate in chemical reactions and remain unchanged, CoQ10 assists in two vital cellular activities: ATP production and free radical scavenging.  To carry out these activities, mitochondrial CoQ10 continuously cycles from Ubiquinone, its ATP production state, to Ubiquinol, its antioxidant free radical scavenging state.
Each step results in the building up of energy. Ubiquinone contributes to ATP production by the shuttling or transporting of electrons.  Similar to people in a bucket brigade passing buckets of water to one another, Ubiquinone passes electrons from one enzyme complex to another. To meet the considerable energy needs of cellular activities, the electron transport chain makes considerable quantities of ATP.

The electron transport chain also creates an enormous amount of free radicals – about 1 trillion oxygen radicals per cell every day.  Most of these oxygen radicals are contained within the membrane folds of the mitochondria; however, about two percent are able to free themselves, generating toxins that present a significant danger to the entire cell.  The antioxidant form of CoQ10, Ubiquinol, scavenges free radicals within the mitochondria and cell membranes.
While free radical formation is harmful to all cells, it is especially dangerous to cells with high biologic activity, such as heart and brain cells.  The highest concentration of CoQ10 is found in cardiovascular (heart) and nervous system (brain) cells to protect their vital functions.  Ubiquinol is such an important antioxidant, primarily because it is present at sites where free radicals inflict significant damage.

While more than 90 percent of the CoQ10 found in a healthy person's plasma is in its reduced form, Ubiquinol is highly unstable and reverts back to CoQ10 when it is exposed to air and light. This is why, until very recently, only Ubiquinone has been available in supplement form. The process of stabilizing Ubiquinol outside of the body took several years to test and perfect.
