Ubiquinol: The Power Antioxidant
Ubiquinol is the active antioxidant form created by ubiquinone, also known as coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). When we are young, our bodies produce more than enough ubiquinol to fight off the free radicals caused by the oxidation process.
Because of its superior ability to fend off free radicals as a hydrophobic (fat soluble) antioxidant and maintain good general health, many people choose to turn to ubiquinol supplements for benefits.
People over 40 generally do not produce enough ubiquinol, and because of this many health care providers recommend a multivitamin or supplement regimen that contains ubiquinol or CoQ10 to help promote general health as we age.
