Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a nutrient or coenzyme found in the cells of the body. It plays the vital role of supporting cellular, assisting organs to perform at their best and help to protect cells and blood lipid from oxidation.
There are two forms of CoQ10:
1. Ubiquinone - the inactive form
2. Ubiquinol - the active form
Ubiquinol is the major form of CoQ10 that naturally occurs in the body - more than 95% of the total CoQ10 in plasma in a young, healthy body is in the Ubiquinol form.
Studies have shown that stabilised active Ubiquinol may be helpful in balancing oxidative stress, helping to protect against free radical damage and helping to maintain healthy LDL cholestrol levels.
CoQ10 and aging
The concentration of CoQ10 in the body may decrease year by year, indicating that it has a close relationship with aging.
CoQ10 also starts to decline rapidly when you are over 40 years old, poor diet, exposure to free radical and certain medication like cholesterol-lowering medication.
But studies also show that at around 30 years old, coq10 levels in the body may begin to decrease.
This is expected due to current lifestyle and not enough good nutrient from diet.
Older individuals may have decreased CoQ10 levels, as well as impaired ability to efficiently convert Ubiquinone to Ubiquinol due to:
- increased metabolic demand
- oxidative stress
- insufficient CoQ10 intake
- gene mutation
- statin (cholesterol lowering drug) intake
Ubiquinol is a powerful antioxidant, which occurs naturally in the body, as well as some foods.
Ubiquinone must be converted to ubiquinol before the body can utilise it.
So are you getting enough?
The standard recommended dosage to help build your body's Ubiquinol levels is 100 - 300mg a day.
In order to achieve just a 100mg dose, one would need to eat:
- 3.4 KG OF RED MEAT
- 5.7KG OF CHICKEN
- 1.6KG OF PEANUTS
- 50 CUPS OF SPINACH
- 120 CANS OF SARDINES
Ubiquinol or Ubiquinone?
Ubiquinol = "ready-to-use" CoQ10
- Ubiquinol is the active antioxidant form that is responsible for the benefits associated with CoQ10
- Ubiquinol has superior bioavailability to ordinary Ubiquinone
- Ubiquinol is 3-8 TIMES MORE ABSORBABLE than Ubiquinone
Obviously if you want to get CoQ10 supplement, you must get CoQ10 in Ubiquinol form.
