The role of ubiquinol

March 2020 Print

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) plays a vital role in keeping cell energy production at its peak and is essential for a healthy heart.  Now there’s a form that delivers the power of CoQ10 more efficiently and is also one of the most power antioxidants available. Ubiquinol is the “reduced” form of CoQ10 which makes it more easily absorbed and utilised by the body.

Researchers at Christian Albrechts University found that ubiquinol, the reduced (active) form Coenzyme Q10, is highest in healthy hearts.[i] The study investigated the link between levels of CoQ10 and C-reactive protein (CRP) which is linked to inflammation. Researchers found people who had lower levels of ubiquinol in the blood also had high levels of this CRP. The large study with more than 1300 people, showed supplementation with ubiquinol for just 14 days could significantly increase levels in people who were deficient.  The study found supplementation with 150mg of ubiquinol for just two weeks showed increased serum levels of ubiquinol.
