Ubiquinol CoQ10

Ubiquinol CoQ10

Cardiovascular Support

60 Softgels ( SKU: 9315, NPN: 80029020 )

Benefits

  • Increases plasma levels of CoQ10 significantly more per mg
    compared to ubiquinone
  • Allows for higher peak plasma levels of CoQ10, especially when
    higher plasma CoQ10 are required
  • Ubiquinol is a highly absorbable and bioavailable form of CoQ10
  • Kaneka Q+ brand for ubiquinol is naturally produced via yeast
    fermentation and is free of the impurities of synthetically
    processed CoQ10
  • Genetically modified organism (GMO) free, allergen free,
    and Kosher certified

Feature Summary

The only lipid-soluble endogenously synthesized antioxidant, CoQ10 (ubiquinone) has well established roles as a free
radical scavenger in both mitochondrial and lipid membranes, as an electron carrier essential to cellular respiration
and ATP production, and it has recently been shown to influence gene expression.1-4
Given the central role of CoQ10 in mitochondrial function and cellular antioxidant protection, its clinical applications are
extensive. Just a few of the many health conditions associated with requiring supplemental CoQ10 to boost levels
are: general antioxidant support, cardiovascular disease (high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy,
protection during cardiac surgery, high cholesterol being treated by drugs, especially statins), migraine headaches, male
infertility, Alzheimer’s (prevention) and Parkinson’s disease (prevention and treatment), and macular degeneration.9-13
The reduced form of CoQ10, ubiquinol, has emerged as a more effective therapy for increasing plasma levels of CoQ10
than most forms of ubiquinone, due to its increased solubility.14,15

Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are taking blood pressure medication or blood thinners, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Keep out of reach of children.

Drug Interactions

Although existing evidence has not found an interaction, CoQ10 resembles vitamin K structurally,
potentially interfering with the anticoagulant warfarin. Close monitoring of the INR is recommended with CoQ10 introduction
in these patients. No other negative drug interactions are known for CoQ10, though a number of medications are thought
to interfere with CoQ10 synthesis or function in the body, including statin medications, tricyclic antidepressants and oral
hypoglycemic agents.16
