Ubiquinol is the active form of coenzyme Q10, has superior absorption and increased bioavailability compared to other forms of CoQ10.

What Role Does it Play in the Body?
It’s found in EVERY cell of the body and it is involved in the process of regenerating other antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E.  

It plays an imperative role in producing energy within the cell, as part of the mitochondrial transport chain.

Deficiency of CoQ10 may result from:

  • Nutritional deficiencies,
  • Prescription medicine usage, such as, Statins,
  • Increased age as part of the natural ageing process,
  • Inadequate intake or production resulting from illness,
  • Excess physical exertion or exercise output.

Studies have shown Ubiquinol is effective for:

  • Mitochondrial disorders, such as, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
  • Increasing energy levels – (it’s also one of our favourites for severe fatigue which is a common symptom we see in coVID)),
  • Infertility,
  • Cardioprotective as it lowers blood pressure, prevents myocardial infarction (heart attack), 
  • Reduces blood thickness and strengthen the heart muscle, 
  • Improves immune system activity,
  • Reduces inflammation, and
  • Migraines.

Dosage & Supportive Nutrition

A typical therapeutic dose is around 100-200mg/day. However, in some instances, doses may be MUCH higher. Always see a qualified clinician who will dose accordingly.
