Ubiquinol (100mg) Overview
Now Foods Ubiquinol contains pure Kaneka QH Ubiquinol, the active antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10. Ubiquinol is an incredibly potent antioxidant that works in energy production at the cellular level. High concentrations of Ubiquinol are found in the heart and mitochondria, and without it, the body cannot sustain normal energy production. Now Foods provides a highly bioavailable form of CoQ10 with their Ubiquinol suspended in a special MCT formula shown to improve absorption in the digestive system.
Although it is produced naturally in the body, concentrations of Ubiquinol decline with age and supplementation may become highly beneficial. For particular interest to athletes, supportive but inconclusive evidence suggests that supplementing with super-physiological levels of CoQ10 around 300mg per day may provide improvements in endurance, athletic performance and energy production.
Ubiquinol (100mg) Description from Now
-Superior Antioxidant Form of CoQ10
NOW Ubiquinol contains the reduced form of CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) which has been shown in some scientific studies to be a highly bioavailable and active antioxidant form of CoQ10. The addition of MCT Oil (medium chain triglycerides) to this product naturally improves its solubility, which further enhances intestinal absorption, and thereby provides superior overall biological value. Coenzyme Q10 is present in almost all cells, where it is necessary for mitochondrial energy production. The body’s highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in the heart, where constant chemical energy availability is imperative. In addition to its benefits for cardiac function through energy production, CoQ10 also functioins as a powerful fat soluble antioxidant, providing protection against free radical attack for vascular structures, as well as for other tissues, including the brain and neurons.
