Puritan’s Pride Ubiquinol 100 mg
Puritan’s Pride Ubiquinol 100 mg is the ideal choice for individuals looking for comprehensive heart, antioxidant, and energy support.** Simply take one softgel three times a day with each major meal for a daily dose of 300 mg of this next generation Co Q-10.
Regular versions of Co Q-10 do not come ready to provide antioxidant support, they must first be converted to ubiquinol in the body. By supplementing directly with ubiquinol, you are providing your body with the active form that is ready to fight free radicals.** This next-generation Co Q-10 delivers advanced antioxidant support.
Just like regular Co Q-10, ubiquinol contributes to cardiovascular wellness and energy production within the heart.** Organs with high-energy requirements such as the heart need Co Q-10 for optimal functioning. However, Co Q-10 levels may decrease with age and the heart may be especially prone to this reduction. Statin medications have also been shown to reduce Co Q-10 levels within the body. Ubiquinol is ideal for restoring Co Q-10 to optimal levels as it has been shown to be better absorbed than regular Co Q-10. Please note, ubiquinol is not intended to serve as a replacement for Statin therapy, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with ubiquinol.

Ubiquinol: The Advanced Co Q-10
You are probably familiar with coenzyme Q-10 (Co Q-10). But did you know that it exists in two forms?
Originally, Co Q-10 supplements were only available as Co Q-10 in its oxidized form, ubiquinone. Now the reduced form of Co Q-10, ubiquinol is also readily available in dietary supplements. Co Q-10 is recycled back and forth between these two forms depending on the demands of the body.
Ubiquinol is the most common form of Co Q-10 found in the body. In fact, it accounts for about 80% of the total Co Q-10 found in the plasma, intestines and liver.1 Ubiquinol is the active form that is ready to fight free radicals.** Free radicals are unstable compounds that can lead to oxidative stress which can cause damage to cells. When ubiquinol encounters a free radical, it neutralizes the free radical in a process that converts ubiquinol to ubiquinone.** To fight another free radical, ubiquinone must first be converted back to ubiquinol.
Supplementing with either ubiquinol or ubiquinone is effective at restoring low blood levels of Co Q-10 to the population average. However, ubiquinol may be a better choice for older adults, those with high Co Q-10 needs, or anyone wanting to quickly replenish their Co Q-10 levels.** Ubiquinol supplements have been shown to increase levels of Co Q-10 in the blood by 110% more when compared to regular Co Q-10 supplements.
JUST THE FACTS ON UBIQUINOL
Ubiquinol levels in the body reach their peak by age 20 and
decrease by up to 50% in different parts of the body by age 80.
Statins can lead to a 51%
decrease in Ubiquinol plasma levels
within 30 days of use.
The average dietary intake of Ubiquinol is only about 3-5 milligrams per day. Not nearly enough to replenish levels lost due to age-related decline or prescription drugs.
How much do I need?
Depending on your needs, Ubiquinol supplementation recommendations can range anywhere from 60-600 milligrams per day to increase tissue concentrations.
