Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is essential for converting the energy in fats and sugars into useable cellular energy. Ubiquinol is the bio-active form of CoQ10. Regular CoQ10 has to be processed by your body into ubiquinol before it can be used. As we get older, that process becomes less and less effective and our ubiquinol levels fall dramatically. Ubiquinol is approximately 8 times as effective as common CoQ10 at helping your body produce energy at the cellular level. As such, it supports the areas of your body that require the most energy – your heart and your brain. Ubiquinol is also a powerful antioxidant that protects mitochondrial DNA, the core of the microscopic ‘power plants’ inside every cell.
