Ubiquinol CoQ10: Powerful Support for Heart Health
What better time to think about your cardiovascular health than February for Heart Health Month! There are many great supplements for heart health, but a key one is CoQ10.
CoQ10 is a unique substance – it plays a dual role in your body by not only supporting mitochondrial function to generate energy but also functioning as a powerful antioxidant. CoQ10’s been dubbed nature’s “spark plug” – the human body simply can’t function without its spark plug!
Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone
There are two forms of CoQ10: ubiquinol and ubiquinone. (Fun fact: the names stem from the word “ubiquitous,” reflecting the fact that these nutrients can be found in almost all cells and are used for many bodily functions). Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ10; 95% of the circulating CoQ10 in the body is in this form. While common forms of ubiquinone have poor solubility in water and poor absorption, peer-reviewed studies show ubiquinol has superior solubility and absorption rates. The higher the CoQ10 blood levels, the greater the benefits!
We offer Natural Factors Ubiquinol and regular CoQ10 in 100 mg and 200 mg strengths.

How the CoQ10 Cycle Works
CoQ10 is an important catalyst in the energy generation system inside cells. Within each cell are hundreds of mitochondria, little factories that convert sugars and fats into ATP energy. ATP is necessary for all cells but particularly important for those with high energy demands, such as heart and brain cells. In the mitochondria, CoQ10 serves as an electron transporter and continuously cycles between its two stable states, ubiquinone and ubiquinol.
When food is “burned” as fuel inside the mitochondria, electrons are released and picked up by ubiquinone, reducing it to the ubiquinol form. Ubiquinol is then able to function as an antioxidant, using these surplus electrons to help neutralize free radicals. This process oxidizes ubiquinol back to the ubiquinone form. This important CoQ10 cycle not only supports energy production but also provides powerful antioxidant support.
