Ubiquinol

Background:

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a coenzyme present in most cell bodies of animals and is located primarily in the mitochondria. Ubiquinol is a derivative of CoQ10 that is fully reduced and saturated with extra electrons to assist in bodily absorbance. Because humans can synthesize ubiquinol, it is not classed as a vitamin.

Purpose:

CoQ10 and ubiquinol are key components in the electron transport chain, facilitating the production of ATP in redox reactions.

Why Supplement?

CoQ10 might make anti-coagulants (blood-thinning drugs), such as warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven), less effective. This could increase the risk of a blood clot.

Side effects are possible, especially if the patient is allergic to the supplement ubiquinol.

  •    Upset Stomach
  •    Diarrhea
  •    Nausea
  •    Loss of appetite
  •    Mild insomnia
  •    Rash

Potential interactions:

Before using this product, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription medications you may use, especially of: drugs for high blood pressure, “blood thinners” (e.g., warfarin), drugs for diabetes, drugs for high cholesterol (e.g., atorvastatin, lovastatin).

From SelfHacked:

  • Ubiquinol doses vary based on the type of medication taken and the reason for taking it.
  • In order to maintain healthy blood levels, consumers should take approximately 25-50 mg per day.
  • If consumers are looking to improve brain function, 150-200 mg should be taken per day.
  • When purchasing Coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinol for supplementation, the two ingredients needed for successful
    absorption are either BioQ10 or Ubiquinol, both in a soft gel capsule. They are sold as either 100 mg capsules or 300 mg capsules.

Side Effects / Adverse Events:

Side effects are possible, especially if the patient is allergic to the supplement ubiquinol.

From Mayo Clinic

  • Levels of CoQ10 in your body decrease as you age. CoQ10 levels have also been found to be lower in
    people with certain conditions, such as heart disease.
  • CoQ10 is found in meat, fish and whole grains. The amount of CoQ10 found in these dietary sources, however, isn’t enough to significantly increase CoQ10 levels in your body.
