Ubiquinol is an extremely important supplement for overall good health. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a nucleoside triphosphate that is essential in the production of cellular energy. Without ATP there would not be enough energy to drive the human machine’s most basic functions. CoenzymeQ10 is necessary for the production of ATP. Without CoenzymeQ10, it is impossible to efficiently produce ATP. Ubiquinone is the oxidized form of COQ10 and until recently, it was the only choice available. Ubiquinol is the antioxidant form of ubiquinone, it offers increased cell protection and is readily synthesized by the body. Ubiquinol is not as popular as some nootropics like noopept or Onnit’s Alpha Brain.
Why You Need It
COQ10 aids in converting carbohydrates and fats to energy in the form of ATP which is the form needed to energize cells. Every day the heart beats an average of 100,000 times. In your life time it will deliver an astonishing 2.5 billion rhythms. Your heart requires a huge supply of ATP. Ubiquinol (COQ10) is proven to be the essential fuel for providing the energy that cells require for meeting the heart’s massive demands. Patients in Japan suffering from congestive heart failure have been prescribed therapeutic doses of Ubiquinone, and more recently Ubiquinol, since the early 1960′s thus increasing their chances of recovery. It has also shown to have mark able effect on slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease. Ubiquinol occurs and is produced naturally by the body. It is the only fat soluble antioxidant your body produces. It is responsible for the health of every organ in the body. What is now very clear is that by age forty our bodies do not produce adequate amounts. Ubiquinol is readily absorbed by the body and is many times more effective than Ubiquinone because it is the exact antioxidant form that is produced and stored naturally by the body. Oral health and Renal function are also proven to benefit from this supplement. Studies focused on aging indicate that low levels of Ubiquinol may be directly associated as a responsible agent.
I don’t like throwing big words around that no one outside of the medical, scientific community understands and I have to struggle with to put into context. So here is the bottom line. In studying this particular supplement, one thing is paramount. It is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the cells and their subsequent ability to supply energy vital to survival. Every organ in the body uses it and while other supplements and herbs are clouded in uncertainty and folklore, Ubiquinol has substantiated studies that prove it’s value to the human body. No. I don’t think it is the fountain of youth nor will it cure everything that ails you. I don’t think you will be throwing away your cane soon, but I do think supplementing your diet with Ubiquinol will help you give the Reaper a run for his money.
The Dangers Of Taking Ubiquinol
Improved overall health. There are few known problems, although improved blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and heart strenghth are all potential benefits that require oversight if you are taking drugs to treat them. The greatest danger is that you choose not too. This amazing supplement shows promise of being one of the best preventive medicines you can take for good health and longevity. The best food sources of Ubiquinol are fish, red meat, grains, fruits and dairy products. The ability to convert these foods degenerate as we age and while there may be “adequate” amounts of COQ10 in these foods your body is less likely to convert it. There is not a recommended daily allowance for Ubiquinol, however doses of 50-100 milligrams for maintenance is generally considered adequate. If you are targeting a specific condition consult your doctor as he or she will define what is the best amount based on current research. As with all changes to your vitamin, supplement, herb routine make certain a health care professional is in your circle. Research, use care, and always start with small doses.
