Ubiquinol CoQ10, 100 mg, 60 Caps
The ‘Anti-Aging’ Benefits of Ubiquinol
Ubiquinol is a critical component for the production of energy in every aerobic cellular system, and if you take that away, you considerably compromise mitochondrial function. This affects more than just your heart. In addition to cardiovascular disease, mitochondrial dysfunction has become increasingly recognized as being directly associated with the aging process itself, including many age-related diseases.
Many anti-aging experts believe optimizing your mitochondria is one of the most powerful strategies you can have to extend your life, and there is certainly overwhelming animal studies that support this view.
Ubiquinol is also important for cellular protection. As mentioned earlier, Ubiquinol is one of the strongest lipid-soluble antioxidants known that is produced within your own body. A number of studies published over the past decade have shown that our oxidative state significantly rises with age, even in healthy individuals. Metabolism is a complex affair, and there are few if any magic bullets to address the degeneration that comes with aging. That said, one very important component of that is Ubiquinol, as it’s required for the production of cellular energy, and serves an important role in cellular protection.
Ubiquinol for Other Chronic Diseases
Ubiquinol is also being studied for a number of other chronic and even genetic diseases such as Down Syndrome. A hallmark of Down Syndrome is a high oxidative state. Studies conducted at a children’s hospital in Cincinnati found that ubiquinol was able to bring 80 percent of children with Down’s back to normal oxidative levels within a month or so. This did not occur with conventional CoQ10, nor any other therapeutic antioxidant supplements.
According to Dr. Robert Barry, head of scientific affairs at Kaneka Nutrients – the sole producer of ubiquinol in the world, and the major supplier of the world’s CoQ10 supply for the last three decades – they’re now conducting a formal clinical phase 2 trial to evaluate the clinical benefits of normalizing the oxidative state of children with Down’s. Still, regardless of the outcome of such studies, the initial finding is a testament to the sheer effectiveness of ubiquinol in comparison to CoQ10, in terms of repairing heavy oxidative states. Other studies have shown ubiquinol has a positive effect on:
- Inflammatory processes
- Septic shock (which is also associated with mitochondrial dysfunction)
- Cardiac arrest recovery
- Stroke recovery
- Periodontal disease (including gingivitis and dry mouth)
Dosing Recommendations and Safety Questions
A common concern by producers of ubiquinol, scientists, and consumers alike, is whether or not supplementing with ubiquinol may negatively affect your body’s own production of it. Fortunately, several studies have shown that this is not the case. Even at very high levels of ubiquinol – upwards of thousands of milligrams a day for a considerable period of time – natural production has remained unaffected. The safety profile for ubiquinol is enviable indeed. Even at very large doses, no adverse effects or drug interactions have ever been found or reported.
These considerations – its profound, well-documented health benefits, along with its safety profile – makes supplementing with ubiquinol a no-brainer. Clearly, diet and exercise are the cornerstones of optimal health, but there’s overwhelming evidence that ubiquinol can go a long way toward optimizing energy levels, quality of life, and longevity, even if you eat right and stay fit. In fact, one of the most dramatic benefits of ubiquinol lies in its potential to slow down the aging process.
