For the patient with heart health concerns, consider Ubiquinol

Possible Recommendations:

  • Continue to monitor diabetes and treat appropriately
  • Try to quit smoking
  • Introduce regular, light exercise
  • Reevaluate diet and choose healthy foods
  • Consider Ubiquinol to support optimal heart health1-3

Ubiquinol plays a role in heart health through multiple mechanisms

  • Ubiquinol helps to protect against lipid peroxidation4-6
  • Ubiquinol is more effective than lipid-soluble vitamin E in protecting against lipid peroxidation7,8
  • Ubiquinol can improve markers associated with heart health, including reduction of GGT (gamma-glutamyltransferase), a marker of oxidative health9-12
    • Ubiquinol acts as an antioxidant and provides cellular defense against oxidative damage7,13

"Can't I just get Ubiquinol through what I eat?"

A typical daily serving of Ubiquinol is 100 milligrams

  • Ubiquinol is found in some foods (cabbage, broccoli, oysters, liver, avocados, oranges), but only in very small amounts14
  • For example, you would have to eat 60 avocados to get the same amount of Ubiquinol in one 100 mg Kaneka Ubiquinol capsule15
