In a healthy human body, the required amount Q10 is ensured by the own synthesis. At the age as well when taking statins, the content of Q10 decreases in serum and tissues naturally diminish.Do you know which form of coenzyme Q10 you are or should be taking? If you've ever taken CoQ10 as a supplement , you may have noticed that different names are used: sometimes the label says ubiquinone, other times it says ubiquinol. A lot of times it simply says coenzyme Q10, which can make things even more confusing. So what is the difference between the three? Well, in actuality there are only two real choices: ubiquinone and ubiquinol.
Both are forms of coenzyme Q10, which is a general term that encompasses both ubiquinone and ubiquinol (the name "ubiquinone" means "the ubiquitous quinone", by the way). Ubiquinone is the oxidized form of CoQ10 and is the more common form of commercially available CoQ10.
It has been around for ages, and if you've ever bought one of the cheaper CoQ10 supplements, it has most likely been in the oxidized form. If the label doesn't specifically mention which form of CoQ10 the product contains, it's very probably ubiquinone. This form of CoQ10 is the antioxidant form which neutralizes free radicals and decreases cellular damage. Ubiquinone does not have this antioxidant effect.Since the body converts ubiquinone into ubiquinol, there is an extra step involved, and not all of the ingested ubiquinone gets converted into ubiquinol. In healthy people, over 90% of the CoQ10 in the blood is in the form of ubiquinol, but as you get older, both the total level of coenzyme Q10 and the body's ability to turn it into ubiquinol decline. Note that this doesn't mean that taking ubiquinone is ineffective; all it means is that taking ubiquinol is more effective. If, on the other hand, you are over forty or concerned about your heart health, it may be worthwhile to go for the ubiquinol.
