Best Dose Of Ubiquinol
For the most part, everyone over 40 should be taking 100mg of Coenzyme Q. People on Statin drugs should take 200mg, as statin drugs decrease the body's production of Coenzyme Q.

Depends: On why you are taking it. If you believe it will keep you young and healthy forever, then no, it's not effective. If you are taking it because of side effects of statin drugs, then perhaps yes. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
I'm pessimistic: Coenzyme q is extremely effective against one rare cardiomyopathy. But it's being promoted heavily right now to help with almost everything and without any good studies / reproducible results. I'm waiting these but can't recommend it now. The psychology is "what's a hundred dollars if it does work? " you decide but I'm not optimistic. ...Read more
Dear sir, What is difference between Ubiquinol and MitoQ and are you agree that MitoQ is stronger than Ubiquinol?
Ubiquinol: Is the more bio-available form of CoQ10. Our body transforms the original Ubiquinone into Ubiquinol and when we are somewhere in our 30s it does not do that very well so we take the "transformed" form. I could not find the ingredients listed for the MitoQ you mention and think simply the Ubiquinol form of CoQ10 would do fine. Peace and good health. ...Read more
CoQ10 is actually an: Enzyme, i.e., something that helps other biochemical processes to work. Please read the label. If under 35 or so you can use the ubiquinone form.

Coq10 is coenzyme q10 and helps the mitochondria produce ATP (energy in the cells): it is very beneficial and it is mandatory to take it if one is on cholesterol lowing medications like statins. It helps prevent heart disease as well. There are no adverse side effects. It is obtained from oily meats and whole grains in our diets.

Yes: I'm assuming this is for fitness / bodybuilding. Creatine is excellent for gaining muscle and if you want mass, probably you want to use this. Coenzyme q is less likely to do anything for you as an athlete; it's heavily promoted and has some interesting effects but i'd urge you not to get your expectations up. ...Read more

Not to my knowledge: In fact, the whole history of supplements -- even antioxidants and omega 3's -- preventing cancer, prolonging life, or improving it quality is almost without exception, over the past forty years, a history of tremendous disappointment. You won't hear about this if you get all your information from "health" internet sites. If you're interested in this, get with an evidence-based holistic doctor. ...Read more
Which is better to take on a regular basis, ubiquinol that is water-soluable or non-water soluble? Thanks!
CoQ10: Some people have less effective fat digestion and absorption. Ubiquinone is therefore less well absorbed. Because it is effectively water soluble, ubiquinol is expected to be better digested and absorbed. There are some studies looking at blood levels that suggest this is accurate. Typically dose is lower using ubiquinol, partly for this reason. ...Read more
Is 100mg ubiquinone (normal Coenzyme Q10) equivalent to 100mg ubiquinol (active form of Coenzyme Q10)? Thank you
Not as well absorbed:
Studies suggest that the blood level of CoQ10 from taking ubiquinol is 1.5 to 8 times greater than taking the same amount of ubiquinone. Thus, one might need to take 150-300 mg of Ubiquinone to get the same benefits of 100 mg of Ubiquinol. See http://www. Lef. Org/magazine/mag2007/jan2007_report_coq10_01.htm

Confused if labelled COQ10 and has Ubiquinol on ingredients should I really be looking for Supplements labelled Ubiquinol as main heading?
Ubiquinol/Ubiquinone: After 30-35 y.o., the human body does not transform Ubiquinone well into Ubiquinone, which is needed for absorption. If you are that age, the Ubiquinone form of coq10 is best for you. Look at the ingredients and make sure that this is the most abundant ingredient if you are taking a formula containing several ingredients. Peace and good health. ...Read more
