Kaneka Ubiquinol Information Center
Ubiquinol is an enzyme that is naturally produced by your body.
Ubiquinol is required for 95 percent of your cellular energy production and is found in every cell in your body. The highest concentration of this essential nutrient is in your heart. It exists in two forms: CoQ10 (the inactive form) and ubiquinol (the active, antioxidant form). In a healthy adult, 95 percent or more of the total coenzyme Q10 in the body is in the ubiquinol form.
Kaneka Ubiquinol® promotes optimum heart heath and helps maintain cardiovascular health. Until recently, supplements were available only in the CoQ10 form, which your body must first convert to ubiquinol in order to use. In 2007, Kaneka Nutrients developed Kaneka Ubiquinol, making ubiquinol available in supplement form for the first time. Studies suggest that Kaneka Ubiquinol has superior absorption and can replenish the normal CoQ10 plasma concentration. In several studies, Kaneka Ubiquinol was shown to increase ubiquinol levels in the blood by an average of four times among healthy people taking 150-300 mg per day.
