Ubiquinol has powerful antioxidant actions in target cells
Although ubiquinone (oxidized coenzyme Q10) and ubiquinol (reduced coenzyme Q10) are kept at a constant ratio within the body, the majority of the total coenzyme Q10 pool is made up of ubiquinol. In fact, when ubiquinone is taken orally, much of it appears to be rapidly converted into ubiquinol. Ubiquinol functions as a potent antioxidant in humans, including in the bloodstream. The coenzyme Q10 molecule can be found in all membranes throughout cells. It appears to works in conjunction with both vitamin E and vitamin C to provide antioxidant actions throughout the body.
Coenzyme Q10 supports mitochondria to enhance cellular energy production
Coenzyme Q10, with its widespread distribution throughout the body, plays a crucial role in mitochondrial physiology as a critical member of the electron transport chain. This transport chain, which is part of cellular respiration, leads to the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), our body’s primary energy source. Levels of this key nutrient may decline as a healthy person ages. Animal studies have found that supplementation can restore normal levels in certain tissues, and human studies suggest that supplementing with this enzyme may have increased benefits when a person has depleted levels.
Coenzyme Q10 supports healthy heart function
Concentrations of coenzyme Q10 are understandably high in the heart as these muscle cells require high levels of energy to constantly function optimally. A number of studies (both animal and human) strongly suggest that coenzyme Q10 supplementation is supportive for healthy heart functioning and for maintaining cardiovascular system health.

Why Choose Ubiquinol Over CoQ10?
Ubiquinol offers unprecedented bioavailability; it is better absorbed and increases human blood levels of Ubiquinol by an average of four times compared to conventional CoQ10. Ubiquinol is produced less by biosynthesis as we age, and supplementation is the best option. Ageing reduces the body’s ability to convert CoQ10 to Ubiquinol. Until recently, the only way to produce Ubiquinol was to convert it from CoQ10 within the body. Because it was so easily oxidized outside the body, it took scientists and researchers more than a decade to stabilize Ubiquinol for use in supplements.
Why do statin drugs reduce CoQ10 levels?
Statins are a class of drugs used to lower cholesterol levels, but in doing so they may deplete CoQ10 levels in the body. Statins work by inhibiting an enzyme which regulates production of both cholesterol and CoQ10. Therefore, statins may reduce serum concentrations of CoQ10.
What is KanekaQH Ubiquinol?
Aciea Ubiquinol contains KanekaQH Ubiquinol, manufactured exculsively by the Kaneka Corporation, the world's largest manufacturer of CoQ10 and Ubiquinol. Kaneka has been the leader in CoQ10 and Ubiquinol research over the last 40 years and Kaneka is considered the gold-standard by university researchers for its exceptionally pure CoQ10 and Ubiquinol. The existence and importance of the Ubiquinol form of CoQ10 has been well known within the scientific community since the 1950's, however, it was only first made available by Kaneka in 2006 after years of extensive research and safety studies.
What is Ubiquinol made from?
Aciea's Ubiquinol is a 100% natural, all-trans form sourced from fermented yeast.
What is the difference between Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol?
CoQ10 exists in 2 forms – Ubiquinone (regular CoQ10) and Ubiquinol. They are considered 2 forms of the same molecule but play different roles in the body. Ubiquinone (regular CoQ10) is converted, in the body, to Ubiquinol by the addition of 2 electrons. This is called a reduction/oxidation reaction. Ubiquinol is thus the reduced,active form of CoQ10.
Although both forms of CoQ10 are kept at a constant ratio within the body, the majority of the total CoQ10 pool is made up of Ubiquinol. More than 90% exists in the Ubiquinol form. Ubiquinol is already in the active state your body needs.
