CoQ10 exists in two interchangeable forms in the human body, ubiquinone and ubiquinol, with over 95% of it being the ubiquinol or active form of CoQ10. Now that ubiquinol is available as a dietary supplement, it is emerging as the preferred choice of doctors, nutritionists, and consumers, especially in health conditions where higher dosages are required. The chief reason is an improved absorption profile. Ubiquinone is a crystalline powder that is insoluble in water and has poor absorption characteristics; as a result, ubiquinol has greater solubility and has been shown to be better absorbed than the ubiquinone form.
CoQ10 is an important vitamin-like nutrient found in every cell in the human body. Each cell contains hundreds of little “engines” called mitochondria that convert sugars and fats into energy for the cell. These mitochondria need CoQ10 to generate that energy. A good analogy for CoQ10’s role is similar to the role of a spark plug in a car engine. Just as the car cannot function without that spark, the human body cannot function without CoQ10. Mitochondria also need CoQ10 as an antioxidant to prevent damage caused by free radicals during the energy production process.
Though CoQ10 is a vital nutrient for cellular energy, only trace amounts are present in food – a tiny fraction of the quantity needed each day. When we are young, the body can produce plenty of its own CoQ10, thus providing abundant, youthful energy. But as we grow older, less CoQ10 is produced. By age 40, the drop in CoQ10 production accelerates, and by age 50 the brain is less sharp, the muscles less strong, and the body tires more quickly.
Suggested Use: An antioxidant for the maintenance of good health. Helps maintain and/or support cardiovascular health. Source of omega-3 fatty acids and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) for the maintenance of good health.
Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ10, which is produced by our cells and is significantly better absorbed, particularly as we age. The superior form of CoQ10 offers you the same broad-ranging benefits, but with enhanced absorption which yields higher concentrations of CoQ10 in the blood.
Directions (Adults): Take 1 softgel 1-3 times daily or as directed by a health care practitioner.
