age, we make less CoQ10 and it becomes harder for our bodies to naturally
convert the basic ubiquinone form to ubiquinol, which research suggests is so
important for combating oxidative stress. LifeSource Vitamins contains CoQ10 in
the ubiquinol form, which provides advanced support for a healthy heart, brain,
nervous system, liver, and helps maintain blood pressure and blood sugar levels
already in the normal range.*
doctors have agreed that if you could take only one nutrient to support your
heart health, brain health and overall energy, it should be CoenzymeQ10
(CoQ10). CoQ10 is the key ingredient for making 95 percent of all of your
energy—most of it in your heart and brain.*
CoQ10 is the
world's most comprehensive cardiovascular support supplement. It is also the
best-selling cardiovascular prescription drug in Japan. It is widely
recommended to repair heart damage and to boost the function of the heart, as
well as in preventative use to safeguard against heart attacks and valve
damage. It has also been shown to be beneficial in breast and lung cancer, as
well as helping to maintain cognitive function.*

Multiple Benefits of taking a CoQ10 Supplement, CoQ10 has shown support of:
Ubiquinone is converted within our body into Ubiquinol, the potent anti-oxidant portion of CoQ10. Ubiquinol is already in its reduced form as a potent anti-oxidant. Ubiquinol inhibits protein and lipid oxidation in cell membranes, and helps to minimize oxidative injury to DNA. Keep in mind there is every indication that the Ubiquinone form has benefits other than those of Ubiquinol.
- Reduce many of the serious side effects of cholesterol and other prescription
drugs such as Adriamycin, Beta-Blockers and some psychiatric drugs.*
- Reduce the effects of aging*
- Aids in the recovery from a wide range of heart problems including angina
pectoris, congestive heart failure and mitral valve prolapse.*
- Can reduce blood pressure and blood lipids at just 30 mg day.*
- Assists chronic fatigue sufferers when administered at 90 to 300 mg per day.*
- Assists in weight loss by stimulating mitochondria and thermogenic activity*
- Treating chronic gum disease*
- Building a strong immune system*
- May normalize blood sugar levels*
- Helps in maintaining a healthy brain*
In addition to promoting heart health and aiding in energy
production, CoQ10 and ubiquinol have also been linked to other steps in the
aging process. LifeSource Vitamins Ubiquinol is a powerful antioxidant, similar
to Vitamin C, uric acid and carotene's. This means it helps cells “mop up”
harmful free radicals, which are released during certain chemical exchanges and
contribute to cell death. A regime of Ubiquinol has been shown to prevent cell
damage from oxidation and free radicals. CoQ10 and
ubiquinol also support the health of high-energy organs, such as the heart, brain,
kidneys and liver.*
Ubiquinol is so important for energy production and optimal
health, it's no wonder it works on so many parts of your body, including:
blood pressure: 12 clinical trials show it has the
potential to help maintain healthy blood pressure without significant side
better blood sugar levels. Research shows
people with high blood sugar often have up to 74% less Ubiquinol in their
systems. So supplementing with Ubiquinol can support your body's ability
to maintain normal blood sugar levels.*
healthy gums: In several double-blind clinical
trials, supplementing with CoQ10 significantly improved gum tissue.*
damaged cells and even your DNA: Ubiquinol helps
repair and restore healthy cells throughout your body. It also helps build
and repair the DNA you need for normal healing and growth.*
fosters younger-looking skin! Studies show Ubiquinol
may protect your skin against damage from harmful UV rays and the effects
Evidence shows Ubiquinol raises blood levels of CoQ10
better than straight CoQ10 can. It has been suggested this is because Ubiquinol
has greater bio-availability than Coenzyme Q10: The body simply absorbs more. In
the bloodstream and in the body’s tissues, Ubiquinol then expends its extra
electron, energizing all cells before converting into CoQ10.*
To take full advantage of the benefits of CoQ10, the dosage should include both forms (the traditional CoQ10 called Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol), and then according to age as to which one you take the most.
Who should take Ubiquinol?
Due to its established role in the body’s energy production process, Ubiquinol should increase energy, stamina and general wellness in most people, especially in those who cannot efficiently convert CoQ10 into Ubiquinol. It is believed that those who are 40 and older or are affected by age-related health conditions may benefit from this pre-converted form of CoQ10 more than those who are younger. Additionally, because Ubiquinol levels have been shown to be reduced in older individuals and those with cardiovascular, neurological and liver-related conditions.
How Does Ubiquinol CoQ10 Work?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a natural nutrient that's found in the mitochondria. Called a “coenzyme” because of its unique ability to participate in chemical reactions and remain unchanged, CoQ10 assists in two vital cellular activities: ATP production and free radical scavenging. To carry out these activities, mitochondrial CoQ10 continuously cycles from Ubiquinone, its ATP production state, to Ubiquinol, its antioxidant free radical scavenging state.
Each step results in the building up of energy. Ubiquinone contributes to ATP production by the shuttling or transporting of electrons. Similar to people in a bucket brigade passing buckets of water to one another, Ubiquinone passes electrons from one enzyme complex to another. To meet the considerable energy needs of cellular activities, the electron transport chain makes considerable quantities of ATP.
The electron transport chain also creates an enormous amount of free radicals – about 1 trillion oxygen radicals per cell every day. Most of these oxygen radicals are contained within the membrane folds of the mitochondria; however, about two percent are able to free themselves, generating toxins that present a significant danger to the entire cell. The antioxidant form of CoQ10, Ubiquinol, scavenges free radicals within the mitochondria and cell membranes.
While free radical formation is harmful to all cells, it is especially dangerous to cells with high biologic activity, such as heart and brain cells. The highest concentration of CoQ10 is found in cardiovascular (heart) and nervous system (brain) cells to protect their vital functions. Ubiquinol is such an important antioxidant, primarily because it is present at sites where free radicals inflict significant damage.
While more than 90 percent of the CoQ10 found in a healthy person's plasma is in its reduced form, Ubiquinol is highly unstable and reverts back to CoQ10 when it is exposed to air and light. This is why, until very recently, only Ubiquinone has been available in supplement form. The process of stabilizing Ubiquinol outside of the body took several years to test and perfect.

Highest CoQ10 blood levels ever recorded!
Ubiquinol is so much more bio-available that in one study, it raised plasma levels from .59 to .91 in young people, and from .82 to 1.33 in older patients. That's a 62% lift in CoQ10 blood levels. And that's just the beginning…
- Another study showed 300mg of Ubiquinol for 4 weeks caused a "markedly high" serum level of 8.413umol/L - an 11-fold increase over baseline.8
- The highest net increase in blood levels of any research study to date occurred using Ubiquinol at a dose of 600 milligrams daily. Blood levels reached 10.7 umol/L - higher than in any previous study of CoQ10!
- And get this: healthy volunteers in their 50s took conventional CoQ10 for a year. They still couldn't match the CoQ10 plasma levels achieved by volunteers taking Ubiquinol for just 3 months.9
This shows that you can take smaller doses of Ubiquinol and achieve the same or better results than with standard CoQ10.
This is great news for people who can't efficiently convert CoQ10 to Ubiquinol — either due to age or illness. Now, supplementing with ubiquinol can restore healthy levels of CoQ10 in your bloodstream and organs faster than anything you've experienced before.
Promotes youthful stamina and energy levels
Improving your CoQ10 to healthy levels can give you back the youthful energy you had years ago.
In one animal study, researchers measured the effect Ubiquinol had on mice and exercise. The mice taking Ubiquinol were able to run continuously 2.5 times longer than mice taking conventional CoQ10.
Other studies show that Ubiquinol reduces exercise-related fatigue 90% better than conventional CoQ10. Supplementing with Ubiquinol is the ideal way to restore and sustain your natural, youthful energy.
Shields your heart, brain and organs from deadly free radicals
Ubiquinol is also one of the most powerful fat-soluble antioxidants known to science. It has a special advantage that protects your body from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals.
The advantage comes from having 2 extra electrons compared to the conventional CoQ10 molecule. This makes a huge difference. Ubiquinol donates these 2 extra electrons to unstable free radicals like peroxides-and neutralizes them.
And because it's fat-soluble, Ubiquinol can penetrate deep inside your cell membranes, into the very hub of your cells. It protects the mitochondria of your cells and even your DNA. Its potent free radical scavenging extends to brain tissue, where it protects neurons from the ravages of oxidative damage.
Ubiquinol also "recharges" other antioxidants in your body, such as vitamins A, C and E.
And in the blood, Ubiquinol protects against the oxidation of cholesterol more powerfully than other major antioxidants. Better than lycopene, beta-carotene, and tocopherols.
Can boost memory and brain function
We also like Ubiquinol for neurological support. Since your brain is extremely metabolically active, CoQ10 helps your neurons make more energy. And when your neurons make more energy, you get better brain function.
Plus, since Ubiquinol is up to 8 times more bio-available, it can achieve the same effect with much smaller doses. It can protect neurons from oxidative damage and potentially ward off cognitive decline.
Limits the effects of aging!
Because of its energy-rich, antioxidant ability, there can hardly be a more significant nutrient than Ubiquinol on aging and health.
In one astonishing study, researchers took mice that were bred to age quickly. By the time middle age set in (around 9 months in mice), Ubiquinol had slowed the aging process by 51% better than the control mice. And 40% better than conventional CoQ10!
By "old age" — 12 months — the difference was shocking. The control mice could barely move and were unresponsive, due to advanced aging. The mice on conventional CoQ10 were only slightly better.
But the mice taking Ubiquinol were alert, responsive and energetic. They had no physical lesions or deformities. Their coat was the glossy type of a healthy young mouse!
Remember, these mice were specially bred to get old fast. Yet Ubiquinol dramatically postponed their symptoms of aging.
What is Coenzyme Q10 and Why is it so Important?
Coenzyme Q10 (also known as CoQ10) is a compound that is made naturally in the body. The Q and the 10 in coenzyme Q10 refer to parts of the compound's chemical structure. CoQ10 is found in most body tissues. The highest amounts are found in the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas. Coenzyme Q10 is used by cells to produce energy needed for cell growth and maintenance. CoQ10 is also used by the body as an antioxidant. An antioxidant is a substance that protects the cells from chemicals called free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive chemicals that can damage important parts of cells, including cell DNA. This damage may play a role in the development of cancer. Tissue levels of coenzyme Q10 decrease as we get older.
An Energy Producer
Coenzyme Q10's function can be compared to a spark plug in a car engine. Just as the spark plug provides an initial spark to start the engine, CoQ10 jump starts energy production within cells. The body uses the generated energy to operate all of its vital processes, including muscle contraction and digestion.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin first discovered CoQ10 in 1957. Examining how the cell produces energy, Professor F.L. Crane and his colleagues came across CoQ10. Since then, scientists have found evidence that CoQ10 supplements may provide significant assistance in the prevention and treatment of a number of health disorders, especially cardiovascular disease and cancer.
What is the link between Coenzyme Q10 and Statins?
Coenzyme Q10 research has shown that cholesterol lowering drugs, known as Statins, can actually decrease the body's supply of CoQ10. These drugs act to inhibit the enzymes that are involved in cholesterol production, which takes place in the liver. However, they also inhibit the production of our body's natural CoQ10 in the process! While these drugs (examples: Lipitor, Pravachol, etc.) can help decrease cholesterol in the body, they are also depleting the important supply of CoQ10 that our bodies need.
Preventing Heart Disease
In one of the first steps in the development of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, free-floating oxygen molecules attack LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol) in the blood. The result is a reactive type of LDL cholesterol that can damage the lining of arteries. As an antioxidant, CoQ10 prevents LDL cholesterol from being attacked. CoQ10 has also been found to work in conjunction with vitamin E to prevent the damage that leads to heart disease.
May Ease Symptoms of Early-Stage Parkinson's Disease
Results of the first placebo-controlled, clinical trial of the compound CoQ10 suggest that it can slow disease progression in patients with early-stage Parkinson's Disease. While the results must be confirmed in a larger study they provide hope that this compound may ultimately provide a new way to treat Parkinson's Disease. "This trial suggested that coenzyme Q10 can slow the deterioration in Parkinson's Disease," says Dr. Clifford Shults, M.D., of the University of California , San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine .*
May aid in Conventional Cancer Therapy
Other studies have been conducted using coenzyme Q10 as a dietary supplement in patients undergoing conventional cancer treatment. In these studies, the researchers explored the potential use of coenzyme Q10 as an additional therapy for cancer. There have also been anecdotal reports that coenzyme Q10 has increased the survival of patients with cancers of the pancreas, lung, colon, rectum and prostate.*
CoQ10 may also help to improve the symptoms of diabetes, periodontal disease, immune deficiency, cancer and muscular dystrophy. Some people use CoQ10 as a weight-loss aid while some athletes use the supplement as a performance-enhancer.*
response of CoQ10 can take time, getting results may take more than eight
weeks. With all supplements like this, you are trying to reverse of slow
something down in your body that has been a lifetime in the making, but when
you stick to your regimen, results will happen!
So it may take some time but so worth it!
