Ubiquinol is an electron-rich, or reduced form of coenzyme Q10. Co Q 10 has been marketed as a critical component of human metabolism and an active nutrient that moves between two states: the oxidized ubiquinone, and the reduced ubiquinol. When in the ubiquinol state, its ability to be integrated into the body is enhanced, while simultaneously developing its additional feature of being a first class antioxidant.*
The cycling action of Co Q 10 helps it achieve its metabolic goals. Ubiquinone picks up electrons, thus turning it into ubiquinol. Ubiquinol releases electrons and becomes ubiquinone, and the cycle continues with this pattern. The ability of Co Q 10 to move electrons around is a critical component in the production of energy, the regeneration of antioxidants in the membranes of cells, and in the construction of other imperative biological molecules. The electrons moved about by Co Q 10 facilitate the chemical reactions that permit broken down fats, sugars and amino acids acquired from food to be utilized as fuel in the mitochondria and to also produce ATP. Ubiquinol works with lycopene, Vitamin E and beta-carotene to prevent LDL oxidation by giving up electrons to other oxidized molecules in order to rejuvenate them. This process incorporates the transformation of ubiquinol back into ubiquinone, which must then be re-converted. Since ubiquinol is a form of Co Q 10 that can transform into ubiquinone, all the aids of Co Q 10 as ubiquinone are accessible with ubiquinol supplements.
