Why is Ubiquinol essential to the human organism?
This substance, which acts like a vitamin, is found in every human cell and affects the activity of all the body's organs. In addition, it protects cells from the harmful effects of free radicals and has an effective cellular anti-ageing property. This explains why Ubiquinol is so beneficial and in numerous areas - physical and mental capacity, the health of our hearts, our immune systems, resistance to stress, the state of our skin and even, for men, the quality of their sperm.
What is the difference between Coenzyme Q10 and Ubiquinol?
In simple terms - their different biological forms. Ubiquinol has no need to be transformed as it exists in a non-oxidised and already active form. It is therefore better and more easily assimilated and thus will be able to act more quickly.
How does one supply the body with sufficient Ubiquinol and can the body's needs be satisfied by what we eat?
Several foods contain this 'cellular vitamin' but it would require eating an extraordinary volume of them to provide the necessary quantity- for example some 3 kg of really fresh red meat or 60 avocado pears per day. Thus, a Ubiquinol-based food supplement is a convenient alternative.
For whom should such food supplements be recommended?
A young healthy person with a healthy diet produces naturally sufficient Ubiquinol or can convert Coenzyme Q10 into Ubiquinol in sufficient quantities. But with advancing years, natural production of Ubiquinol diminishes significantly. For example, at 40 there is already 30% less Ubiquinol in the muscles of the heart than at age 20. A lack of Ubiquinol may also arise as a result of certain diseases, such as diabetes, or following heart failure, or from taking certain drugs, such as statins. Those involved in sports use up more Ubiquinol during training and they need a daily supplemental dose of this quite vital substance. Ubiquinol-based supplements are clearly recommended for people in all the above categories. This 'cellular vitamin' is also an excellent antidote to problems engendered by an unbalanced diet or by permanent stress, or for looking after the health of one's heart. It has been observed, in addition, that there is an unsatisfactory level of Ubiquinol in people who are obese or depressive.
What is the correct dose for the best results?
This largely depends on individual circumstances. However, studies have shown that a daily dose of between 50 and 100 mg of Ubiquinol has a notable effect on vitality and energy. At the same time it is important to understand that Ubiquinol is an entirely natural substance which is obtained by the fermentation of yeast. And that, as a food supplement, it has no side effects and has no effect on the natural production of the substance by the human body.
