What is Ubiquinol?

Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) which has been reduced to make it more readily usable by your body. What is the difference between Ubiquinol and regular CoQ10?

Ubiquinol is the most readily absorbed form of CoQ10 and is one of the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidants in the body.

CoQ10 is a required nutrient found in every cell of your body and is vital for providing energy to your cells, helping your organs perform at their best and protecting your cells and blood from oxidation.



What is the Difference?

There are two forms of CoQ10:

  1. Ubiquinone
    • the inactive form (conventional Coenzyme Q10).
  2. Ubiquinol
    • the active form that is the most effectively absorbed.
    • only Ubiquinol has an anti-oxidative ability.


Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone are both forms of CoQ10

What’s the difference between Ubiquinol and CoQ10?

Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone are both forms of CoQ10, and both are necessary to produce cellular energy.

Ubiquinone – the inactive form

Ubiquinone is the oxidized form of CoQ10 and has been taken as a supplement and studied for more than 30 years. Over the past three decades, CoQ10 has been recognized for its benefits to general health and wellness as well cardiovascular and neurological health.

Ubiquinol – the active form

To generate cellular energy, the body must convert ubiquinone into ubiquinol.

Without this conversion, the body’s energy production process cannot be completed and energy levels cannot be sustained. Thus, both are critical to sustaining your body’s natural energy. The reduced form of Ubiquinol has only became available in supplement form in recent years and is now available in Australia and internationally.
