Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a naturally-occurring and critical nutrient for energy production. However, many of us don’t produce an optimal amount of this powerful compound despite its necessity.
What Is CoQ10 Ubiquinol
CoQ10 – better known as its active form: Ubiquinol (“you-bik-win-oll”) – helps produce over 95% of the energy in the cell. CoQ10 is responsible for synthesizing adenosine triphosphate, a molecule that acts as an energy source for each cell. The compound also promotes ATP production in the inner membrane of the mitochondria.
CoQ10 decreases as we age, with levels dropping in people as young as 30. Though it is naturally found in the body, bacteria, and food groups like cruciferous vegetables and organ meats, taking Coenzyme Q10 powder is the best way.
CoQ10 Ubiquinol vs. Ubiquinone
There are two types of CoQ10:
- Ubiquinone (CoQ10)
- Ubiquinol (‘active’ CoQ10)
Both of these forms naturally occur in the body. The main difference is that our bodies need to convert CoQ10 into Ubiquinol before it can be used to support energy creation. Ubiquinol is the only fat-soluble antioxidant made in the body. It requires no conversion, allowing for immediate absorption.
