||When it comes to choosing a CoQ10 supplement, the primary factor is
how many swallowed milligrams actually make it into your bloodstream.
Coenzyme Q10 is a notoriously difficult nutrient to absorb. A recent
study showed that in seriously ill patients, conventional ubiquinone
CoQ10 was hardly detectable in the blood, whereas the new ubiquinol
resulted in significant blood level increases and subsequent clinical
Scientific studies show that ubiquinol absorbs up to 8
times greater than ubiquinone and that higher levels of ubiquinol remain
in the blood far longer than ubiquinone. In studies measuring
exercise-induced fatigue, ubiquinol was 90% more effective than
ubiquinone. In middle-aged mice, ubiquinol was shown to be 40% more
effective in slowing measurements of aging compared to ubiquinone.1
Japanese researchers have developed a novel ubiquinol delivery system
that has been shown to double-peak CoQ10 blood levels (i.e.,100% greater
peak absorption) in mice compared to the original ubiquinol formula.
This enhanced ubiquinol formula also achieved a 66% greater amount of
CoQ10 in blood over 24 hours compared to the original formula.2

More humans are supplementing with coenzyme Q10 than ever before. One
reason is the increased awareness that the "statin" drugs used to lower
LDL and cholesterol depletes the body of CoQ10. What most doctors don't
know, however, is that normal aging may result in a greater reduction in
CoQ10 than is caused by taking statin drugs. For example, while statin
drugs have been shown to reduce plasma CoQ10 by 40%,3
the aging process reduces CoQ10 levels in the heart muscle wall by 72%.4
What is particularly frightening is the thought of people taking statin
drugs who fail to supplement with CoQ10. The CoQ10 deficit caused by the
dual affects of aging5 and
statin drug use could result in severe depletion of cellular vitality.
