- What is ubiquinol?
It is the active form of the popular antioxidant CoQ10, important for heart health, brain health and energy.
- How is it different from CoQ10?
CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone, needs to be converted into ubiquinol in order to be used as an antioxidant by the body. As we age, our ability to make this conversion declines. Supplementing directly with ubiquinol provides the body with this powerful and important antioxidant.
- What are ubiquinol’s main functions?
First, as a tremendously powerful antioxidant, it benefits all cells from the harmful effects of free radicals. Next, by its function as part of the Krebs cycle, it aids in the synthesis of mitochondrial ATP for cellular energy and metabolism. As a support for energy production, it benefits high energy-demanding organs like the liver, brain and heart.
