CoQ10 & Ubiquinol - What They Are and What They Do

Is CoQ10 useful as a supplement?

It is expensive and our bodies make some, so why take it?


As I get older, my health concerns have changed.

I'm researching longevity, energy, brain fog, blissful states of mind and stress and I'm not alone.


Currently, the biggest concerns of people over 50 are:

#1 Cardiovascular health with millions affected by conditions nationally

#2 Lower quality of life resulting from reduced energy & vitality


Diet and exercise play a vital role in maintenance of cardiovascular health.

In recent years medical professionals have looked to antioxidants to neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress.

Free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which in turn may contribute to cell damage.*

All of our body’s systems require constant energy on a cellular level to function properly and these levels may fall as we age.


WHAT IS COENZYME Q10?

A fat-soluble, essential molecule found in nearly every cell in the body that plays two vital roles in cellular and bodily health:


#1 Supports Production of Energy*

#2 Helps Fight Free Radicals*


Found in small amounts in the diet, CoQ10 is mostly synthesized by the body.

Age and other factors can hinder the body’s ability to produce and metabolize CoQ10.


Decline in CoQ10 levels produced by the body may start around 40 years old, although it can begin as early as 20.


THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UBIQUINONE AND UBIQUINOL


UBIQUINONE: the oxidized form of CoQ10 which is converted into ubiquinol in the body.

It has been taken as a supplement and studied for more than 40 years.


UBIQUINOL: the reduced form of CoQ10 considered one of the strongest fat-soluble antioxidants due to an additional electron.


Until recently ubiquinol was not available in supplemental form because of its sensitivity to air and light which convert it back into ubiquinone.


Both forms are critical to sustaining your body’s natural energy, cellular health and for many biochemical reactions.*


Ubiquinol is the predominant form of CoQ10 in the blood.


Ubiquinol and ubiquinone are converted back and forth during the cellular energy production process.*



If you are young and healthy, you may meet your needs with ubiquinone.

With advanced age or excessive oxidative stress, ubiquinol may more readily replenish this important cellular antioxidant.*


• Better absorbed than regular CoQ10^

• Increases serum levels of CoQ10 110% more than regular CoQ10

• Most absorbable form of CoQ10^

• Ubiquinol form of CoQ10 has the ability to help fight free radicals*
