Bio-Ubiquinol Active QH contains the reduced form of coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinol) in a specially stabilised form.
It also contains vitamin C, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system, the normal function of the immune system and a normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Coenzyme Q10 Roles in the Body
Coenzyme Q10 has two major roles within the body, namely energy production and antioxidant performance. Ubiquinol Active is an essential cofactor of enzymes that convert sugars and fats into energy within specialised sub-cellular organelles called mitochondria.
Both of the roles that coenzyme Q10 plays are of equal importance in this process.
Coenzyme`s Antioxidant Properties
Coenzyme Q10 is important as an antioxidant because it protects cell membranes (particularly mitochondrial membranes) from radicals. The reduced form of coenzyme Q10 is more important as an antioxidant than the oxidised form.
Thus, it 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.
