Ubiquinol CoQH-CF contains the reduced form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) called CoQH, which has been shown in scientific studies to be a more bioavailable and more active antioxidant form of CoQ10. Ubiquinol is the primary form of the compound in circulation, whereas supplemental ubiquinone (CoQ10) first must be reduced to ubiquinol before its antioxidant benefits can be realized. Reduction of ubiquinone to ubiquinol may be markedly less efficient in some individuals due to age, general health and/or genetics. Overall production of CoQ10 by the body typically falls with advancing age. Coenzyme Q10 is present in almost all cells where, as ubiquinone, it is necessary for mitochondrial energy production as a component of the respiratory chain. The body's highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in the heart, where constant chemical energy availability is imperative.
CoQH functions as a powerful fat-soluble antioxidant, providing protection against free radical attack for vascular structures, as well as for other tissues including the brain and neurons. Ubiquinol protects membrane phospholipids and serum low-density lipoprotein from lipid peroxidation, and protects mitochondrial membrane proteins and DNA from free radical-induced oxidative damage. Furthermore, ubiquinol regenerates oxidized vitamin E, returning it to a reduced state. Recent findings linking CoQ10 to support for healthy blood pressure levels already in the normal range do not appear to be related to the compound's antioxidant functions. The addition of d-Limonene to this product naturally improves its solubility, which further enhances intestinal absorption, and thereby provides superior overall biological value. Health Functions:
