|What Is It?
Ubiquinol is the active antioxidant form of CoQ10. It has an
additional two hydrogen atoms and compromises the
majority of the ubiquinone/ubiquinol pool in the plasma of
healthy young subjects. In the body, the enzymatic
conversion of ubiquinone to ubiquinol in the mitochondria
is a key step in the electron transport chain and the
manufacture of ATP.*
Uses For Ubiquinol-QH
General Support: Ubiquinol makes up over 90% of the
CoQ10 found in the plasma of healthy young individuals,
typically up to the age of about 40-45 years. This makes
ubiquinol especially important for older individuals,
individuals who may be experiencing greater levels of
oxidative or physical stress, or individuals who appear not
to respond to regular CoQ10 supplementation (possibly
due to poor conversion of CoQ10 to ubiquinol in the body).
Research suggests that it may be more readily absorbed
than the ubiquinone form. The safety and bioavailability of
ubiquinol were evaluated after single oral dose and
4-week multiple dose studies. Significant gastrointestinal
absorption was observed and no clinically significant adverse
effects were noted.*
Cardiovascular Support: In a preliminary case report
involving an open clinical evaluation using ubiquinol, a
U.S. cardiologist reports that plasma CoQ10 levels doubled
for one 52 year-old woman after supplementation with
300 mg ubiquinol in divided doses for one month. It was
also noted that ubiquinol supported a healthy ratio of
CoQ10 to lipids. In a separate case, a 65 year-old male not
responding to CoQ10 supplementation experienced a
4-fold increase in plasma CoQ10 after supplementation
with the same dose of ubiquinol. In addition, ubiquinol
supported healthy ejection fraction and mitral valve
function while supporting overall physical activity and
quality of life.*
