Ubiquinol

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SUPPORT YOUR HEALTHY HEART TODAY?

Essential Nutrition Ubiquinol 100mg contains Ubiquinol-10, the reduced form of Coenzyme Q10. Coenzyme Q10 is made naturally by the body and is found in virtually all the cell membranes. The name “ubiquinones” was given to this group of naturally occurring compounds because of their ubiquitous presence in living organisms. Coenzyme Q10 has a number of roles in the body, including in energy production and protection of the cells as an antioxidant. Coenzyme Q10 is probably best known for its role in supporting a healthy heart by acting to improve the energy production in cardiac cells, protecting it against free radicals and oxidative damage. However, the amount of Coenzyme Q10 reduces in the body with age. Strenuous exercise can also result in reduced levels of Coenzyme Q10.

COENZYME Q10 – WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES?

Coenzyme Q10 is similar in structure to vitamin K and vitamin E. Coenzyme Q10 is contains a quinone ring with 10 repeating isoprene units attached as side chains. Coenzyme Q10 can exist as an oxidized form or reduced form and this relates to its ability to accept or donate electrons. The oxidized form is the ubidecarenone or ubiquinone, most commonly known as CoQ10. Ubiquinol, in contrast is the reduced form. While both forms are used within in the body and are interconverted when needed, the ability of the body to create the reduced form ubiquinol may be more impaired with age.
