Ubiquinol is the natural active antioxidant form of CoQ-10 that is generally associated with the many powerful and preventive health benefits associated with CoQ-10. While supplemental CoQ-10 is converted to ubiquinol in the body, supplemental ubiquinol is especially valuable for people who may have a particularly strong need for CoQ-10 or who have difficulty with the body's natural conversion process, which tends to deteriorate with age often leading to lower levels of ubiquinol in the body (this typically begins in one's 40s or 50s).
Ubiquinol has also been identified as a potent lipophilic antioxidant that is capable of regenerating other antioxidants such as tocopherol (Vitamin E) and ascorbate (Vitamin C). Recent studies also show that ubiquinol plays a key function in gene expression involved in human cell signaling, metabolism and transport.
The antioxidant power of Ubiquinol is particularly important with large muscles like the human heart. Studies also indicate that Ubiquinol also assists the body in maintaining healthy cardiovascular system and blood circulation as well as renal health.
Ubiquinol, a vital component in the body's energy production, is a lipid soluble benzoquinol that is found in all cellular systems and in nearly every cell, tissue, and organ in the human body (and in all mammals). Typically, the body acquires ubiquinol through biosynthesis, in small amounts from the diet, or by way of supplementation.
The mitochondria are the energy producing organelles that exist in every human cell. While they typically produce 95% of the energy required for healthy cell growth and development and for a healthy metabolism, the mitochondria can be damaged by free radicals due to oxidation and toxicity and diminished by age over time. The antioxidant action of Ubiquinol (which is believed to neutralize free radicals) is now considered to be on of the most important functions in cellular systems.
- Statin drugs can deplete ubiquinol in the body.
- Ubiquinol is not intended to be a replacement for statin therapy and you should not discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with ubiquinol, without first consulting your healthcare professional.
