Where Can I Find Ubiquinol?
Ubiquinol is available at most leading pharmacies, vitamin shops and supermarkets. Ubiquinol is also available from many online retailers. Check with your preferred online retailer for availability.
What Should I Look For on The Label?
Ubiquinol is the active, antioxidant form of CoQ10. Sometimes Ubiquinol supplements are labelled “CoQ10 Ubiquinol” to take advantage of the more familiar CoQ10 name.
Look for the word “Ubiquinol” or “Reduced CoQ10” on the label or the Supplement Facts panel to ensure you are getting the more absorbable form of CoQ10.
Which Ubiquinol Supplement Brand Should I Choose?
The brand or type of supplement you decide to go with is a personal choice. Read the labels as they will describe what is included in a product so you can make an informed decision about buying it. To identify a supplement containing Ubiquinol, look for the active ingredient “Ubiquinol” on the label. This is how you can identify supplements that contain active Ubiquinol, especially in cases where Ubiquinol and CoQ10 are stacked next to each other on store shelves or for products that are labelled both CoQ10 and Ubiquinol.
In What Dosage Are Ubiquinol Supplements Available?
Ubiquinol supplements come in a variety of doses, typically ranging from 50 mg to 300 mg. Consult your healthcare practitioner to determine what dose might be suitable for you.

Why Are Ubiquinol Supplements All Softgel Capsules?
When exposed to air, Ubiquinol naturally oxidises, becoming Ubiquinone, the more stable but less active form that is included in conventional CoQ10 supplements. In order for the Ubiquinol in supplements to remain in the active form, it has to be emulsified in oil and put into a soft gel capsule to protect it from the air and prevent it from oxidising and becoming inactive. This is why all Ubiquinol supplements come in soft gel capsules and are not available in multivitamins.
I Have Dietary Restrictions – Can I Take Ubiquinol?
Whether or not you can take a Ubiquinol supplement will depend on your own particular dietary restrictions or concerns. The active ingredient in Ubiquinol supplements is naturally cultivated from yeast. It contains no GMO ingredients, no animal products, and no soy, nut or gluten allergens. However, because Ubiquinol is always combined with inactive ingredients in order to be formed into supplements, it is important to check the label to determine if there are any potential dietary or allergy issues with a given supplement. Some brands use gelatine or beeswax, which may be an issue for vegans or those who follow kosher diets, while other ingredients, such as soybean oil or sunflower oil, may be a concern for people with allergies.

Look for Quality Ubiquinol
Today, Kaneka is the only manufacturer of Ubiquinol CoQ10, produced in a way that carefully protects against oxidation.
Look for the Kaneka Quality Seal on the bottle (or sometimes listed in the Supplement Facts panel) to know you’re getting genuine Kaneka UbiquinolTM made in the USA or Japan. If this is not shown, ensure “Ubiquinol” is listed as the active ingredient on the label.
