In its reduced, ubiquinol form, CoQ10 acts as a potent antioxidant in mitochondria and lipid membranes. While ubiquinol is the most common form in the body, sufficient amounts of both ubiquinol and ubiquinone are needed for efficient ATP production. Ubiquinone is the traditional supplemental form of CoQ10. Until recently, the ubiquinol form was not available as a dietary supplement.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) exists in two beneficial forms, ubiquinone and ubiquinol, that are continually recycled in the body through an oxidation-reduction reaction within cellular mitochondria.
Normally, efficient reduction of ubiquinone to ubiquinol occurs either during absorption or shortly after entering the bloodstream. As the reduced ubiquinol form of CoQ10 can be directly utilized by the body, Seeking Health now offers ubiquinol as an option for those who may have difficulty reducing ubiquinone.
While most people can benefit considerably from supplementing with ubiquinone, ubiquinol may be more effective during significant oxidative stress or chronic health conditions. Studies now show that the body’s ability to reduce the ubiquinone form of CoQ10 to the powerful antioxidant ubiquinol declines with age and is markedly compromised in certain chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus.
Initial studies suggest ubiquinol has approximately twice the bioavailability of ubiquinone, however, further studies are needed to compare differences between these forms. CoQH™ is the newly available, stabilized, reduced ubiquinol form of CoQ10. CoQH™ is a good alternative for individuals who may have difficulty in converting ubiquinone to ubiquinol. Pure ubiquinol is formulated in a vegetable oil healthygoods with a natural emulsifying and stabilizing agent. Provided in 50 mg softgels.
