Our bodies are a miraculous thing and so it is natural that we would want to maintain its integrity. We look to find various ways to stay healthy especially when it comes to heart health. Our hearts are our life lines and when it doesn’t work properly we risk death. Cellular energy function is also an important part of the functionality of our bodies. If you walk down any vitamin aisle you will see an abundance of CoQ10 products on the shelf.
CoQ10 or Coenzyme Q10 is produced naturally within the human body. It is found in every part of the body but especially concentrated in the organs that need the most energy to function. These organs are the heart, kidney, liver and muscles. Our bodies usually produce a sufficient amount of this anti-oxidant compound. But sometimes the medicines we take and also age decreases the levels in our bodies. It is found in a variety of foods but it has higher levels in organ meats.
Ubiquinol, like CoQ10, occurs naturally in the body but is also found in a supplement form. It is one of the two forms that CoQ10 exists in. It has greater absorption and extra electrons which makes it the most absorbable in the intestine. This form is most preferred by the body for transport in the blood.
