Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10 for short) is a potent antioxidant naturally present in your body that supports cardiovascular health and is absolutely essential for healthy mitochondrial function. Ubiquinone, the other CoQ10 form, is difficult for your body to absorb — but the antioxidant form ubiquinol, like that in Super Ubiquinol CoQ10, absorbs up to eight times better! Benefits at a Glance: Potent cardiovascular health support Promotes healthy energy production at the cellular level Vital to workhorse organs like the heart, brain, and kidneys Absorbs up to eight times better than ubiquinone CoQ10 Provides powerful antioxidant support More facts about Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 Mitochondria are tiny cellular structures that turn the foods you eat into usable energy by converting them into a compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP) with the help of CoQ10. ATP gives your cells the power they need to do their jobs. And CoQ10 is essential for healthy mitochondrial function in tissues and organs throughout your body. Cardiovascular health, antioxidant defense, and more The highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in your heart. CoQ10 promotes optimal heart health and function by supporting healthy cellular energy production. As a potent antioxidant, CoQ10 supports heart health by inhibiting free radical formation, oxidation of proteins, lipids, and DNA, and modulating the expression of genes important for heart cells. CoQ10 helps maintain blood vessel health by inhibiting oxidation to endothelial cells. Healthy CoQ10 levels in your brain also encourages healthy cognitive function, as well as immune system and muscle health. Unfortunately, CoQ10 levels naturally decline over time. Superior bioavailability of ubiquinol CoQ10 In contrast with ubiquinone CoQ10 (which is difficult for your body to absorb), ubiquinol CoQ10 absorbs much better, with people taking ubiquinol achieving plasma CoQ10 levels almost twice as high as those who took the same dose of ubiquinone. In one study, plasma CoQ10 levels were four times higher in patients who switched from ubiquinone to ubiquinol, and in other studies, ubiquinol improved CoQ10 levels up to eight times better than ubiquinone. Ubiquinol CoQ10 stays in your blood longer, too: In a pre-clinical study, ubiquinol was present in the blood at a concentration over three times higher than ubiquinone 8 hours after ingestion. That is why we only use ultra-absorbable ubiquinol CoQ10 in our Super Ubiquinol CoQ10 softgels.
