Boost Your Energy. Fuel Your Cells.
Power On with Natural Cellular Energy
Ubiquinol is the active form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). It is an antioxidant produced naturally by the body, and is found in every cell. Ubiquinol is responsible for 95% of the body’s cellular energy production, allowing organs like your heart, liver and kidney to perform. It is critical for supporting the body when it is experiencing high oxidative stress caused by environmental pollutants, stress, and even the natural aging process.
American scientists first discovered Ubiquinol back in the 1950’s. Not only did they discover the key to unleashing hidden energy reserves in the human body, they also found that it could help to promote a healthy aging process. Today, after 40 years and numerous clinical studies, ubiquinol has gained recognition in the medical community for its ability to support heart function cellular health, and deliver complete vitality from within.
Our body’s natural ability to produce ubiquinol decreases as we age. Peaking at around age 21, the CoQ10 levels in most adults will drop over time, lowering by as much as 65% by the time we are 80. Other external factors, such as stress, may contribute to the accelerated depletion of your normal CoQ10 levels. Unfortunately, the amount of ubiquinol we typically get from our regular dietary intake may not be enough to compensate for even our normal age-related decline in CoQ10 levels.
Research shows that poor absorption is usually the cause of a lack of performance in CoQ10 supplementation. That’s why BalanceGenics found it crucial to offer Ubiquinol, having the highest CoQ10 absorption bioavailability. Our superior quality ubiquinol is manufactured by the trusted Kaneka Ubiquinol, the only genuinely patented ubiquinol available.
Understanding CoQ10: Ubiquinol vs. Ubiquinone
The ubiquinol form of CoQ10 is essential in the production of cellular energy, which supports the optimal vital functions of your heart and liver. It is also known as one of the most powerful antioxidants available.
Your body naturally produces traditional CoQ10, also known as ubiquinone, which has to be converted by the body into ubiquinol. However, as you age, the body has a harder time converting ubiquinone to ubiquinol, which can result in decreased production of ubiquinol.
Ubiquinol supplementation is up to eight times more absorbable than ubiquinone, and has shown to be more effective in supporting heart and brain health. Ubiquinone is fat-soluble and not very absorbable on its own, so to aid in absorption, many supplement companies add extra ingredients to serve as an emulsifier.
Ubiquinol supplementation can help replenish the ubiquinol in your body more effectively than traditional CoQ10 because it is more bioavailable and already in the form required to aid in the production of cellular energy.
This Energy Boost is Like a High Five to Your Cells.
Promote Cellular Energy
Did you know our bodies contain trillions of cells, and each one of these cells need energy in order to keep our body functioning? Cellular energy is the very foundation of good health and our body’s natural energy levels. But where does cellular energy come from? Our cells have an organelle (a cell organ) inside of them called the mitochondria. The mitochondria converts the food we eat and the air we breathe into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is a special type of fuel that powers our cells. Sometimes, continuous lack of energy could be related to your cells ATP production. Low levels of ATP can make you less mentally and physically active, and impact your cognitive function.
ATP cannot be produced without ubiquinol. It is ubiquinol that transports the necessary electrons that are responsible for ATP production. Simply put, ATP is the energy your cells use to function, much like the gasoline you put into your car for it to run. Using this same analogy, ubiquinol is the pump that gets the gas into your car’s tank. While it’s not the fuel itself, it plays a major role in getting fuel to your cells in a form they can utilize.
Optimal cellular energy production helps us think better, feel better, move better, look better and perform better. This is because our cells are responsible for everything our bodies do. Healthier cells mean great vitality, mental clarity, weight management and physical performance.
Reduce Free Radical Impact
Have you ever left an apple out on the counter, and came back to find that it turned brown? That is an example of the natural oxidation process. In the same way, our bodies are subject to oxidative stress caused by free radicals. While smoking is one of the easiest ways to introduce free radicals into your system, the very environment that we live in is also a huge contributor. Pollution, UV rays, preservatives and chemicals are all common outside sources of free radicals. Internal sources of free radicals can come from a poor diet, lack of sleep, stress, and aging.
Although we can’t see it like we can with the apple, oxidative stress is slowly affecting our bodies. Oxidative stress appears in many forms including fatigue, occasional headaches, suboptimal cognitive function and brain fog, wrinkles, and suboptimal immune function.
Antioxidants are our body’s natural solution for free radicals. Just like putting lemon juice on a sliced apple prevents it from immediately activating with the oxygen and turning brown, antioxidants slow down the chain reaction caused by free radicals. Ubiquinol is one of the most powerful antioxidants that helps support the balance of free radicals that your body needs. This is especially important as you age, when oxidative stress begins to increase.
Support Healthy Vital Organs
The heart, liver and kidneys are the vital organs in our body that use the most energy. It is in these organs that ubiquinol is the most concentrated.
For example, the energy demands of the heart are among the highest in the body. It takes energy for the ventricles of the heart to contract as they pump blood to the arteries, and it takes even more energy to relax the contracted muscle. The heart, beating roughly 100,000 times each day, uses the most energy of any muscle, therefore cellular energy is crucial for cardiovascular health.
When we think about health and wellbeing, we often focus on what we can see, like our weight or physical appearance. We don’t always consider what is happening on the inside unless something goes wrong. Our internal organs keep us alive. They are the body’s engine and ensure that all vital functions are working efficiently. Ubiquinol promotes healthy vital organs by helping to provide the cellular energy needed to power them. This energy is what keeps vital organs working at their optimal levels to protect our overall health.
Ubiquinol and Statin Drugs: What You Need to Know
Statin medications are the number-one-selling medication in the world. While statin medications are reported to help with cardiovascular conditions like heart attacks by lowering LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol, they have also been shown to lower the levels of natural ubiquinol in the body.
A study that appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that patients using the statin Zocor (simvastatin) had a 22% decrease in their ubiquinol levels, while other studies have shown that levels of the antioxidant can be reduced by as much as 40 percent.
Research has found that ubiquinol supplementation could support healthy muscle function. In one study, after supplementing with ubiquinol over a six-month period, they noticed an improvement in muscle and CQ10 levels within the body also increased by more than 194%.
If you are taking statin drugs or any other medication, we recommend you consult your healthcare practitioner about ubiquinol and its possible benefits for your specific needs.
How To Take
As a dietary supplement take one (1) softgel once or twice daily, preferably with meals or as directed by your healthcare professional.
