Ubiquinol is an enzyme naturally produced by your body. It is vital for your health. It is used by every cell in your body. It boosts their function and helps to prevent damage. While your body can produce Ubiquinol on its own, there are some people out there who may need to supplement for it. For example, if you are taking a statin then it is vital that you take Ubiquinol supplements as your body will be unable to replenish the enzyme at the speed that it is being depleted. In addition to this, some people may take the supplement to help combat the anti-ageing process.
You may see Ubiquinol commonly referred to as Coenzyme Q10 when you purchase it in supplement form (in most cases). Try not to worry about this too much. Coenzyme Q10 will be converted to Ubiquinol inside of your body. However, it is worth noting that Ubiquinol can also be purchased just as Ubiquinol, not in the coenzyme form. It is preferable to take it like this as you will get more benefit from it, particularly if you are over the age of 25. It will cost a little bit more, but it will have so much more benefit on your body.
There are several different health benefits to Ubiquinol. It would be impossible to cover them all, particularly as there are still several studies being carried out. However, we do want to highlight the most important of the benefits. These are the ones which spur most people on to purchase Ubiquinol supplements. As mentioned previously, the supplement does need to be used in combination with some medications and your doctor will prescribe it to you, but it can also be used for the following.
As mentioned at the start, Ubiquinol helps to reduce the speed at which your cells age. Without going into the science behind everything, which can be complicated, Ubiquinol can act as a sort of protective barrier for your cells. It prevents them from being damaged and breaking down so easily. This can help to slow down the ‘ageing’ process. Not by a lot, but studies have shown that it really does help. There are very few supplements on the market which have the same amount of backing as Ubiquinol, which is really saying something when it comes to the quality of the supplement.
Heart disease and high blood pressure
Several studies have indicated that Ubiquinol can be used to treat high blood pressure and heart disease. In many cases, your doctor may opt to prescribe you with Ubiquinol supplements for these conditions. If you are looking to treat either of these conditions with the supplement, then talk to your doctor first. This way you can be sure that there is no conflict with any other medication you may be taking.
There is plenty of research going on into how Ubiquinol can benefit those suffering from genetic conditions. Studies have shown that it can have a positive impact with the following:
Improving recovery after a heart attack or stroke.
Helping to recover from septic shock.
Reducing inflammation in the body.
Dealing with some ‘mouth diseases’ such as gingivitis and dry mouth.
