Ubiquinol is the bioactive form of Coenzyme Q10, a coenzyme required for converting dietary nutrients into energy, also known as ATP. CoQ10 is acquired via food we eat and also generated by the mitochondria of our cells. This production slows as we age, believed to be a primary contributor to lowered energy and impaired cardiovascular function as we age. CoQ10 exists as both Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone in the body, and both are useful. Ubiquinol is the reduced form, serving as a bioactive antioxidant that prevents free radicals from damaging cells and DNA.
CoQ10 is associated with heart health because the slowed production as we age results in buildup of oxidative damage and stress, slowing energy and regeneration of heart and other tissues. Incorporating CoQ10 in many studies shows improvement in many if not all bodily systems, revealing the profound effect that energy production has on signs of what we consider aging. However, COq10 affects every cell in the body, not just the heart
Sourcing of CoQ10 is typically associated with dietary intake that is becoming increasingly toxic and contaminated in civilized society including whole grains, fish, and organ meats. Chemicals and low nutrient quality in these foods may be why so many are suffering from effects of deficiency in CoQ10. Deficiency of CoQ10 in the body influences many diseases including obesity, allergies, high blood pressure, CVD, cancer, Parkinson’s, AIDS, ulcers, radiation damage, aging, muscular dystrophy, and more
Kaneka Ubiquinol™ is found in Cymbiotika’s D3 K2 CoQ10 for its antioxidant role in heart health as well as production of energy and protection from oxidative damage in all bodily cells. We chose ubiquinol to save the body from having to convert the conventional form of ubiquinone for available use. CoQ10 is a fat-soluble vitamin that contributes to the utilization of synergistic A, D, and K, increasing the benefits of these naturally fat-soluble vitamins in active form. This makes our D3 K2 CoQ10 the most comprehensive formula, offeried in our signature micelle delivery system for maximum absorption.
