Ubiquinol – CoQ10′s biologically active form; is there a difference?

At Hadley Wood Healthcare we are keen on spreading the word… Our colleagues in America have just published a great resource describing the difference between regular CoQ10 and its biologically active form known as ubiquinol.

Here is a taster, you can read the rest at Intergrative Interventions web site;

Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is a fat-soluble, essential quinine molecule found throughout the body. In fact, CoQ10 is so prevalent that it was given the name ubiquinone, from the word “ubiquitous”—found everywhere. Coenzyme Q10 is a natural nutrient that’s found in the mitochondria, the energy-producing organelles present in every cell of the body. Called a “coenzyme” because of its unique ability to participate in chemical reactions yet remain unchanged, CoQ10 assists in two vital cellular activities: adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production and free radical scavenging. To carry out these activities, mitochondrial CoQ10 continuously cycles from ubiquinone, its ATP production state, to ubiquinol, its reduced and active state.
