Ubiquinol 100mg | Dr Mercola
Did you know your mitochondrial function is at the heart of everything that happens in your body? No matter your age, it’s never too early – or late – to start giving your mitochondria the protection and support they may need.
One of your body’s best protective mechanisms is a super-antioxidant called Co-enzyme Q10 or CoQ10. Ubiquinol is the active, useful form of CoQ10.
Dr Mercola's Ubiquinol plays an important role in providing the proper foundation to help you:
- Helps boost your energy and stamina levels
- Can protect your mitochondria from free radical and oxidative assault
- Supports the health of your brain and cardiovascular system
- Can help to reduce the normal signs of ageing
- Contributes to the normal function of the immune systems
- Support your CoQ10 levels if you're taking a statin drug
Just one word of caution: Ubiquinol isn’t a stimulant, so please don’t expect a dramatic “surge” in energy immediately after you start taking it.
Rather, as your blood, tissue and organ levels of ubiquinol gradually rise to healthy normal levels, you’ll likely see an increase in your overall energy levels and stamina.
However, Dr Mercola does recommend a "loading dose" of 300mg per day (3 x 100mg tablets) for 2-3 weeks, if you feel you are deficient in Ubiquinol to quickly help normalise your ubiquinol levels.
How Ubiquinol Transformed Ageing Mice Into ‘Teenagers’
Dr Mercola references Japanese researchers at a major medical centre who decided to take a closer look at ubiquinol’s potential to slow down the mouse ageing process.
They chose specially bred mice that age very rapidly to study how CoQ10 and ubiquinol affect ageing, compared to a control group of mice that received no supplementation during their lifetimes.
When the mice in all the groups reached the equivalent human age of 90 to 100, the differences between the control group and the ubiquinol groups were dramatic.
While the control mice were near death (as they all should have been), the mice that had received the reduced version of CoQ10, or ubiquinol, over their lifetime were still scampering around like teenage mice!
The only difference between the groups was ubiquinol. Only the mice that received ubiquinol over their entire lifespan showed these slowed ageing effects.
This revealing study both surprised and confirmed researchers’ suspicions: Ubiquinol was indeed in a class of its own for its potential benefits against the typical signs of ageing.
Why is Mitochondrial Health Important?
Most of your cells each contain several hundred mitochondria, or little energy factories that supply the majority of the fuel and energy your body produces. However, this massive energy production produces byproducts that can damage your cells and mitochondrial DNA and make your body age faster.
CoQ10 and its reduced, active form, Ubiquinol, are rare, lipid-soluble antioxidants that can help protect against cellular damage from free radical byproducts in the lipid portions of your body, including your cell membranes. Guarding against cell and mitochondrial damage helps ensure your body receives the energy it needs for the healthy function of your heart, brain, muscles, kidneys and other fuel-hungry tissues.
When your heart, brain and other organs receive the fuel they need for proper functioning, you help support your total body health and wellness.
Ubiquinol or CoQ10?
While younger people can utilise CoQ10 without difficulty, we recommend those over the age of 30 use the active, more readily absorbable form of CoQ10, Ubiquinol.
Dr Mercola's Ubiquinol:
- Contains Kaneka Ubiquinol as the active ingredient – the only genuine, patented ubiquinol, meticulously produced to protect against oxidation
- Is made by an exclusive manufacturing process that utilises biological fermentation to deliver a high-quality stabilised and high-absorption formula for reliable support
- Comes packaged in hard capsules, rather than air-permeable soft gels, to help protect contents from oxidation
Adults, as a dietary supplement take one (1) capsule daily with a meal.
