What is Bio-Active Q10 Uniquinol?
BioActive Q10 is a new product containing coenzyme Q10 in the reduced form, ubiquinol. Coenzyme Q10 occurs within the body in two closely related chemical forms, oxidised (ubiquinone) and reduced (ubiquinol). Until recently, coenzyme Q10 supplements were only available in the oxidised form as ubiquinone.
What does Bio-Active Q10 Uniquinol do?
Coenzyme Q10 has two major roles within the body, namely in energy production and as an antioxidant.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential cofactor of enzymes that convert sugars and fats into energy, within specialised sub-cellular organelles called mitochondria. Both forms of coenzyme Q10 are of equal importance in this process.
Coenzyme Q10 is also important as an antioxidant, protecting cell membranes (particularly mitochondrial membranes) from free radicals. The reduced form of coenzyme Q10 is more important as an antioxidant than the oxidised form. Thus BioActive Q10 helps to maintain a healthy heart, muscles and immune system, all of which have a high-energy requirement, as well as a high antioxidant requirement.
