Ubiquinol is produced naturally within the body, it is converted from CoQ10 into a substance which is essential for energy production and is found in every cell of the body, with the highest concentrations found in the heart. Not only required for energy, it is also heralded as one of the most powerful known antioxidants available, protecting the body’s cells from oxidative stress and free radical damage. To give you a little more insight into this remarkable nutrient; the two main forms of CoQ10 are:- Ubiquinone or CoQ10- Ubiquinol or 'active' CoQ10 - this is the form we use in Ubiquinol 100mgThe two forms of CoQ10 are naturally present in the blood, however, our body needs to convert CoQ10 into ubiquinol before it can be used to create energy. This is Herculean work! – and it can get harder with age, as the body’s ability to produce CoQ10 and convert it into ubiquinol declines as we get older. This is why ubiquinol is a popular choice for people over the age of 50 and/or taking cholesterol-lowering medicines. As the preferred form of CoQ10, ubiquinol is better absorbed in the body. An added bonus is ubiquinol is the only known fat-soluble antioxidant made naturally in the body, a unique property not shared by the ubiquinone form of CoQ10.Ubiquinol can be obtained from dietary sources:- chicken breasts, avocados and olive oil to name a few. However, you'd have to eat the equivalent of 34 chicken breasts (6oz each) or 60 avocados or 133 tablespoons of olive oil to reach the level present in just one Ubiquinol 100mg capsule!Each one-a-day capsules contains 100mg of the 'active' compounds, which is the equivalent to 280mg of CoQ10, suspended in sunflower seed oil for maximum absorption We'd recommend this nutrient for those looking to support cardiac function and energy levels.
