Everything You Need To Know About Ubiquinol
Ubiquinone, often called co-enzyme Q10 or CoQ10, comes from the word "ubiquitous," meaning everywhere. It exists in nearly every cell of your body and in all forms of animal life. It is produced naturally by your body and is used to create ATP (energy) in the mitochondria of every cell of your body. Without CoQ10, your body would be unable to produce or sustain energy at all.
What is Ubiquinol?
CoQ10 exists in two primary states within the mitochondria of your cells. It transitions from one state to another as part of the oxidation/reduction process required for all energy production in your body. The first state is known as "fully oxidized" ubiquinone, or standard un-activated CoQ10, which has no free electrons to share. The second state is known as "fully reduced" Ubiquinol, or activated CoQ10, which has two free electrons to share. If your body cannot transform CoQ10 into Ubiquinol, energy production in your body cannot happen.
Why Your Body Needs Ubiquinol
As a healthy 20-year-old, your body readily produces all of the CoQ10 it needs and efficiently converts it into Ubiquinol. In fact, 95% of all CoQ10 in a healthy body exists in the reduced Ubiquinol form.* Unfortunately, clinical studies over the past 40 years confirm that beyond the age of 20 your body begins to lose its ability to create CoQ10 and convert it into Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol decreases from 100% concentration at age 20 to only 68.2% concentration in the heart and 72.6% concentration in the kidneys by the age of 40.* Past the age of 40, CoQ10 production and conversion to Ubiquinol progressively declines in all the organs and tissues throughout your body, a fact that scientists attribute as one of the causes of fatigue and the decline in stamina and energy often associated with aging.*
One Of The Most Powerful Antioxidants Known
In addition to its primary role in energy production, Ubiquinol also plays a critical role in maintaining overall health and reducing the signs of aging.* Considered by many scientists to be one of the most important functions in all cellular systems, Ubiquinol's inherent ability to give away its two free electrons also makes it one of the most powerful antioxidants known to man, neutralizing free radicals and oxidative stress more effectively than any other known antioxidants. It is so capable of performing this function that it even re-generates vitamin C, vitamin E, and many other antioxidants in your body.
A Defense Against Oxidative Stress Associated With Aging
Clinical studies confirm that Ubiquinol concentrations decline in response to the aging process as Ubiquinol acts as the first-line of defense against the oxidative stress associated with aging.* Luckily, numerous large-scale, clinical studies have successfully demonstrated that regular supplementation with Ubiquinol provides support for your immune and nervous systems, helps maintain normal blood sugar levels, boosts energy and stamina levels, and promotes optimum heart health.*
You may be thinking to yourself, "Is it possible to increase my Ubiquinol levels by eating the right foods?" Unfortunately, while Ubiquinol can be obtained by eating oily fish, organ meats, or whole grains, it is difficult to achieve the levels found in this supplement without eating excessive amounts of these foods. For example, sardines are one of the most Ubiquinol rich foods available, but you would need to eat 33 pounds of sardines to get 100 mg of Ubiqiuinol. The only available option to sufficiently raise your Ubiquinol levels is through regular Ubiquinol supplementation.
The NatureWise Difference
Since Ubiquinol is easily oxidized in air, it is difficult to supply a commercially viable form for supplementation. The Kaneka Corporation has spent over a decade of clinical research and development to create a pure and stable form of Ubiquinol. NatureWise Ubiquinol contains 100% Pure Kaneka QH Ubiquinol, the only commercially stable and active form of Ubiquinol available. We've taken special care to make NatureWise Ubiquinol soy free. We also include both organic extra virgin olive oil and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) for maximum Ubiquinol absorption.
If you wish to help slow the aging process, increase your stamina and energy levels, support muscle recovery from intensive workouts, help prevent free radical damage, promote optimum heart health, enhance the support of your immune and nervous systems, and help maintain normal blood sugar levels, feel younger, and reduce the normal signs of aging — not to mention enjoy the same unparalleled NatureWise Customer Service you have come to expect — we encourage you to try NatureWise Ubiquinol.*
