Functions of Ubiquinol CoQ10 in the body
- Supports heart and brain health
- Provides potent antioxidant support
- Ubiquinol is absorbed up to 8 times better than regular CoQ10 (ubiquinone) formulations
- Maintains higher CoQ10 blood levels for longer
- Assists a healthy production of energy at the cellular level
Kaneka Ubiquinol™ is the world’s first and only ubiquinol available as a nutritional ingredient, and which provides more activated coenzyme Q10 to the body than any other form of CoQ10. It is world’s most recognized and researched CoQ10 ingredient for 30 years. Kaneka Ubiquinol™ is a remarkably different product made by one of the most trusted companies in the nutritional ingredient industry.
Ubiquinol and ubiquinone (regular CoQ10) are vital nutrients that are produced naturally in the body. These two forms are the same essential nutrient but they function differently within the body. Ubiquinol CoQ10 is the reduced (or pre-converted) form allowing it to be more readily absorbed and used by the body than the conventional ubiquinone CoQ10, which has to be converted before it can contribute to the production of cellular energy and use in the body. As we age, this conversion process becomes less and less efficient, and therefore, your ubiquinol levels begin to fall dramatically.
Ubiquinol CoQ10, has been seen to enhance the regeneration of vitamin E. It is one of the most powerful lipid soluble antioxidants known to scientists. As an antioxidant it helps support antioxidant that helps support cardiovascular health and restore youthful cellular energy. It may help to lower blood pressure and reduce platelet stickiness, which can help to reduce the risk of potentially harmful blood clots. It is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods and is made in almost every tissue in the body. It plays a significant role in producing cellular energy and is essential for mitochondrial function.
