Is 100mg ubiquinone (normal Coenzyme Q10) equivalent to 100mg ubiquinol ( active form of Coenzyme Q10 )? Thank you

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 for more info. ...Read more
