Ubiquinol is the active form of Coenzyme Q10, which is 800% more bioavailable than conventional CoQ10. Scientific studies show that blood levels rise immediately with ubiquinol and remain high over a longer period.
The body naturally produces coenzyme Q10 in every cell in the body. Coenzyme Q10 is the key to energy production and provides 95% of our total body energy. A lack of coenzyme Q10 can, therefore, have a major negative impact on health. At the same time, coenzyme Q10 is the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidant and protects the cells against damage by free radicals.
The fact is that the body cannot exist without CoQ10. As the CoQ10 level falls, health deteriorates. Scientists have thoroughly investigated the role of CoQ10 in the biochemistry of the human body.
For a long time, only coenzyme Q10 was available as a dietary supplement. After 10 years of research, scientists have succeeded in producing high-quality stable Ubiquinol. With Ubiquinol older people can now reach an optimal Ubiquinol blood level in a short amount of time and fully benefit from the health benefits of CoQ10.
Unfortunately, Q10 naturally has extremely low bioavailability (intake). In addition, from the age of 40, the body's ability to form coenzyme Q10 and convert it to the active form Ubiquinol Q10 decreases.
The Ubiquinol level has been shown to be reduced in the elderly, as well as those who have problems with the cardiovascular system, nerves, liver, and blood sugar-related diseases.
Studies show that Ubiquinol is much better absorbed by the body than coenzyme Q10, Ubiquinol keeps blood levels high much longer and so, it is more effective. One study shows that the Ubiquinol level in the blood increased by more than 90% after just one dose and this high level was maintained for the entire study period of eight hours. This long-term effect of Ubiquinol could also explain the strong anti-aging and energy-increasing effects of Ubiquinol observed by scientists.
Over 25 years of coenzyme Q10 research have shown that a lack of coenzyme Q10 affects heart health. After all, the heart is the organ in the body that needs the most energy and, therefore, is directly dependent on coenzyme Q10.
In fact, 75% of all patients with heart problems have a CoQ10 deficiency at the same time. In contrast, healthy people have a sufficiently high level of coenzyme Q10. Taking Ubiquinol can quickly replenish coenzyme Q10 in the body. This strengthens the heart and it can pump more vigorously.
In more than 25 years, coenzyme Q10 has proven in scientific studies and in practice that an adequate supply of coenzyme Q10 is crucial for a healthy heart. Especially in the second half of life, Q10 is particularly important as a dietary supplement since it is no longer produced by the body in sufficient quantities nor is it converted into the active Ubiquinol form.
The intake of cholesterol-lowering substances (statins), unfortunately, also reduces the coenzyme Q10 and Ubiquinol levels in the cells and consequently leads to heart and muscle weakness, as well as muscle pain and lack of energy.
Taking Ubiquinol can quickly replenish stores and reduce the side effects of statins. Gastric acid blockers, blood thinners, blood pressure medication, ACE inhibitors, diuretics, antidepressants, etc. can also reduce the coenzyme Q10 level.
Low sperm count is a common cause of male infertility. A recent study showed that Ubiquinol can significantly increase sperm count.
60 men between the ages of 20 and 40 received 150 mg of Ubiquinol per day for 6 months. The study showed that sperm count increased by 53% and sperm motility increased by 26%. The number of rapidly motile sperm increased up to 41%, the number of slow motile sperm decreased by about 29% and the number of non-motile sperm decreased by 55%.
Ubiquinol is not a quick fix for those looking for a quick boost of energy. In contrast to caffeine or sugar, which quickly raise the energy level, but can subsequently lead to a 'crash', Ubiquinol leads to a sustained natural increase in energy.
It generally takes 2 to 3 weeks to achieve optimal plasma and tissue CoQ10 levels with Ubiquinol. However, most people feel the first positive effects due to the constantly rising CoQ10 level around the fifth day of use.
What happens in the body biochemically is like a sponge that absorbs water: the drier the sponge, the more moisture it absorbs.
Healthy people up to the age of 20 or 30 can easily produce coenzyme Q10 themselves and convert it into the ubiquinol form. Therefore, conventional Q10 (ubiquinone) is suitable as a food supplement for them. However, people over 40 should preferably take Ubiquinol Q10.
Because from this age the body produces less and less Ubiquinol from coenzyme Q10. A sufficient supply of Ubiquinol is important to keep the Q10 level high enough to stay healthy and energetic. Since Ubiquinol is the active form of Q10 and no longer needs to be converted, it can be used directly by the body.
Q10 is a natural food ingredient and has been consumed by millions of people for many years. No side effects have been observed in studies on thousands of people, no matter how high the dose of Q10 was. And this includes long-term studies over many years.
Ubiquinol has a similar structure to vitamin K2 and could reduce the effects of vitamin K-dependent anticoagulants. Experience has shown that taking ubiquinol does not interact with everyone equally.
In a current placebo-controlled double-blind study, coenzyme Q10 and ginkgo biloba were tested in combination with a blood thinner. No impairment of blood coagulation (measured as an INR value) was found. 
If you want to take ubiquinol in parallel with blood thinners, you should check your INR value (a parameter for determining blood coagulation) closely until you can determine whether and to what extent this blood value is influenced by the intake of ubiquinol. Or talk to your doctor so that they can prescribe another anticoagulant for you. These are called Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOAK).

Researchers suggest taking 200 to 300mg Ubiquinol CoQ10 every day during the first two weeks to optimally recharge the CoQ10 levels. To achieve that, take 1 capsule daily with a meal.
To maintain the CoQ10 level afterwards, take 1 capsule daily with a meal or as recommended by your doctor.
At the recommendation of your doctor, 200 to 300 mg (1 capsule 2 to 3 times a day) can be taken over a longer period to support heart functions.
If you want to take full advantage of the anti-aging effect of Ubiquinol, you should take 200mg (1 capsule twice a day).
Important Note: Ubiquinol has a similar structure to vitamin K2 and can reduce the effects of vitamin K-dependent oral blood thinners.
