Features and benefits
• High-strength formula providing 150mg per capsule of ubiquinol – the active form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which is absorbed more effectively and utilised more readily by the body than regular CoQ10 supplements
• Contains Kaneka QH™ ubiquinol, which has been the subject of numerous clinical and experimental research studies
• Supports cardiovascular health, including healthy heart muscle and blood vessel function and helping healthy people maintain healthy cholesterol
• Supports cellular production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body’s primary energy source
• Supports healthy muscle function
• Antioxidant properties to help protect cells against potentially damaging free radical activity (including exercise-related oxidative damage)
How it works
Nearly all cells in the body require CoQ10 to function. It’s particularly important for the cellular production of ATP, which is the body’s primary fuel source. ATP is needed for almost all physiological activities – especially those involving organs and tissues with high energy demands and metabolic activity, like the heart, muscles and brain.
Since it plays such a central role in cellular energy production, low levels of CoQ10 can lead to fatigue and muscle aches and pains.
However, before cells are able to utilise CoQ10, it needs to be converted to its active form, ubiquinol.
Each capsule of Oriental Botanicals Ubiquinol 150 provides a high-strength 150mg dose of Kaneka QH™ ubiquinol, which has been the subject of numerous clinical trials and experimental research studies. It is absorbed more quickly and efficiently than CoQ10 from supplements that contain CoQ10 as ubiquinone or ubidecarenone.
Oriental Botanicals Ubiquinol 150 supports several aspects of cardiovascular health, including helping to maintain heart muscle function, supporting the healthy functioning of the inner lining of the blood vessels (endothelium), and helping healthy people keep their cholesterol levels within the healthy range.
As a potent antioxidant, ubiquinol also helps protect the body against the potentially damaging effects of free radicals, including the oxidative damage to muscle tissue that may be associated with exercise. In addition to possessing its own antioxidant activity, it also facilitates the recycling of other antioxidant molecules in the body (e.g. vitamins C and E), enabling them to be re-used.
