50 mg Reduced Form Coenzyme Q10
Superior Form for Rapid Assimilation and Use in the Body
Stabilized Bio-Identical Ubiquinol Up to Eight Times More Effective at Increasing CoQ10 Levels
UBIQUINOL-50 is a coenzyme Q10 product offering superior uptake, assimilation, and use in the body when compared to standard oxidized forms of CoQ10 (i.e., ubiquinone).
Ubiquinol-50 provides 50 mg of the stabilized reduced form of coenzyme Q10 (Kaneka Ubquinol QH) in a softgel capsule. In order to enhance absorbtion and stability (e.g., to prevent crystallization and oxidation), Ubiquinol-50 includes D-limonene oil (emulsifier), caprylic acid, capric acid, and alpha-lipoic acid.
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND APPLICATIONS
In the human body, the primary function of CoQ10 is to allow the mitochondria to convert food metabolites from the digestive process into cellular energy. This coenzyme is normally produced by the body and it is found in all of the body’s cells. However, it is most abundant in heart, liver, and immune system cells.
Reduced form CoQ10 (ubiquinol) has been shown to be an important fat-soluble antioxidant with the ability to protect and regenerate Vitamin E in cell membranes. In addition, CoQ10 has been shown to stimulate the body’s immune defenses. Research indicates that approximately 90% of the body’s CoQ10 levels are in the form of ubiquinol in healthy individuals. Studies show that when levels of CoQ10 are allowed to decline, the body’s vital organs and systems may not meet their energy requirements. When this occurs, the inevitable results are major ill health and disease states.
With advancing age (around 40 years) and/or with conditions of poor health, the body begins to lose its innate ability to produce CoQ10 and to convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol. Improper nutrition and/or maldigestion can also have the effect of reducing the body’s ability to provide the needed amounts of CoQ10. Dosages in the range of 50–300 mg have been reported to be effective in cases of heart disease, fatigue, and immune deficiency. Numerous studies have indicated that supplemental CoQ10 in the amounts of 30–100 mg can be helpful when gums need to be strengthened. No toxicity has been noted at levels many times greater than these amounts.
An independent study on individuals over the age of 60 (published in Journal of Functional Foods 1 (2009): 65–73) found that the increase per 100 mg value of the reduced formulation contained in Ubiquinol-50 (CoQH-CF) was remarkably high when offered with oil. It is notable that supplementation with a single dose of CoQH-CF resulted in a statistically significant increase in the bioavailability of CoQH-CF compared to the oxidized Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) preparation. Furthermore, a 3.5-fold higher total CoQ10 (Cmax) was achieved in the blood when subjects were supplemented with the CoQH-CF compared to the ubiquinone.
