Ubiquinol 100mg, the active form of Coenzyme Q10
AgingQ is a Coenzyme Q10 food supplement in a form identical to that present in the body, 100% fermented by yeast, enriched with Vitamin B1, B3 and Zinc. The patented production process of Ubiquinol Kaneka ™, keeps it oxidized and ready to perform its physiological functions without requiring further metabolic processing.
AgingQ is stored in OceanCaps® latest generation high protection capsules, to protect the ingredient from oxidation linked to external factors.
Why ubiquinol is better than CoQ10
Despite being present in most of the supplements on the market, the Coenzyme Q10 is hardly absorbed because it is a large molecule. For this reason, Ubiquinol supplements (such as AgingQ), or Q10 in a reduced form, are much more suitable than classic supplements.
Furthermore ubiquinol is in non-oxidized form, that is, it can carry out its antioxidant action. If it oxidized, in contact with air or other agents, it would lose much of its distinctive functionality. For more information, see the article that compares Ubiquinol and Coenzyme Q10.
Benefits for the body
Q10 is present in the cells of all living things, including bacteria and plants, animals and humans. Its role is to support the vital cell functions. As the internal production decreases the age it often becomes essential to integrate this nutrient through a high quality product. Taking Coenzyme Q10 as a supplement brings multiple benefits to our body:
- restores the physiological levels of CoQ10 in cells
- promotes cellular energy production (ATP)
- protect the heart from oxidative damage
- makes heart cells more efficient at producing energy
- is a powerful antioxidant
- helps regenerate vitamin E
- promotes the regulation of blood pressure
- promotes cognitive and neurological functions
Properties of Coenzyme Q10
The properties of Coenzyme Q10 in reduced form are demonstrated and supported by an ever increasing number of scientific publications, it is possible to read the specific articles for each of these at the links provided.
Benefits for the cardiovascular system
Numerous studies show that Coenzyme Q10 counteracts the damage caused by hypertension and the formation of atherosclerotic plaque: by reducing the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (LDL), it reduces their accumulation in the lumen of the coronary arteries. More information on the subject is available in the article covering i benefits of Coenzyme Q10 for the cardiovascular system.
Coenzyme Q10 and Statins
Dr. Langsjoen published his studies on the link between statins and Coenzyme Q1990 deficiency in Rome in 10. Statins inhibit the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase and in this way reduce the endogenous production of cholesterol by intervening on the mevalonate pathway. This same route is also responsible for the production of Coenzyme Q10. Therefore all patients taking these drugs undergo one reduction of coenzyme levels.
For this reason, subjects who take statins are always recommended to use a Coenzyme supplement as an adjuvant for deficiency. For more information see also the article on benefits of Coenzyme Q10 when taking statins.
Coenzyme Q10 in male and female fertility
Q10 plays a fundamental role in the intracellular production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), it is therefore necessary to produce the necessary cellular energy throughout our body. These cells also include sperm and oocytes.
Since coenzyme levels decrease after age 21, supplementation is certainly useful for bringing its values back to the ideal threshold. For more information, you can read the specific article on the importance of Coenzyme Q10 in male and female fertility.
