100 mg ubiquinol
In supplements containing Q10, the oxidized form of this nutrient, called ubiquinone, applied.
Oxidized Q10 is largely converted to ubiquinol, the reduced form of Q10, after oral intake. This conversion process, which can be laborious for a variety of reasons (such as advanced age), is not required when using ubiquinol.
Ubiquinol in a ready-to-use form has been available for use in supplements since 2006. Orally administered ubiquinol is better absorbed and leads to greater bioavailability than ubiquinone. In many situations, supplementation with ubiquinol will therefore be preferable to regular Q10.
In both animals and humans, studies have shown that administration of ubiquinol, compared to an equal amount of ubiquinone, results in higher Q10 levels in blood plasma. Research further indicates that the differences are more pronounced in the elderly than in young people. A study in which healthy elderly people were given 100 mg of ubiquinol or 100 mg of ubiquinone three times a day found that plasma Q10 levels were twice as high in those who had received ubiquinol. Furthermore, there is evidence that replacing ubiquinone with ubiquinol supplementation may lead to even greater differences in plasma Q10 levels in certain individuals.
Stable and high-quality coenzyme Q10 at ubiquinol form that is identical to the body's own coenzyme Q10 and thus can be used directly by the body.
