Ubiquinol – A Breakthrough for People With Heart Disease, Liver Damage and Concerns about Cancer

The most commonly recognized supplemental for of CoQ10 has been known as “ubiquinone” or “coenzyme Q10” Now, Japan’s largest producer of CoQ10, Kaneka has found a way to stabilize a pure and BIO-IDENTICAL form of the nutrient. It is called ubiquinol, and it’s the downline metabolite of CoQ10. In other words, it’s the biologically ACTIVE version of CoQ10 so it’s stronger, and it slips right into your cells.  There is no need to worry about whether or not your body (and your gut) can convert the CoQ10 to it’s active form (ubiquinol). This is REALLY IMPORTANT:

As you age, not only do you produce less CoQ10, but your body becomes less efficient at converting CoQ10 to the active form – Ubiquinol

Certain people have a real hard time converting the CoQ10 to ubiquinol, especially people with diabetes, GI problems, autoimmune disorders, and those with heart disease. So ubiquinol would be ideal for people who fit in this group. But because you get higher plasma concentrations with ubiquinol, I recommend it for everyone. It’s definitely new and improved and worth it becuase ubiquinol is a powerful antioxidant that nourishes your muscle cells.  It can help you with leg cramps, especially those related to the drug mugging effect of your medications (see below). It can improve the look of your skin, it can improve liver function and detoxification. It can increase ATP in the cells, so it’s an energizing molecule…it’s great for fatigue and low thyroid!!!

There are hundreds of medications which could be slowly stealing the life out of you. In fact, I wrote a book on the subject, called “Drug Muggers” and consider myself an expert on drug-nutrient depletion. I believe that when a drug steals a nutrient, you will develop a new symptom. You may not realize that your new symptom is related to a drug-nutrient depletion and so Drug Muggers could really save you money, save your health and extend the quality of your life. Please consider all the reasons why you might not be feeling as good as you used to, it’s not always black and white, and based on some lab result. If you are weak and tired, it may be your blood pressure medicine, or your statin, or your hormones, you’ll see these drugs on the list below.

There Are Absurdly Inexpensive Way to Feel Better

When it comes to your health, go with your intuition, and research the best you can. I have many free articles posted on this website, and you can share them with your friends, print them for your doctor, or post them to your website (just credit me please). My book(s) can help you too and when you buy them off my website, your support goes to helping me learn more and write more free articles and terrific health books to help everyone.

The subject of vitamins, minerals and nutrients is explored in-depth in Drug Muggers, which explains to you how to feel better when you develop a symptom (so you don’t have to start yet another new drug!!!) Wouldn’t that be wonderful? If you knew what medicines were depleting a nutrient, you could quickly fix that deficiency and hopefully erase the symptoms that plague you (without having to resort to more and more pills). The following list of medications are those that can interfere with your heart-healthy nutrient, CoQ10 and therefore ubiquinol. Read the list and see if you’re medicine is on it. I’ve tried to include as many international brand names as possible, but it helps if you know the “generic” name of your medicine.

With many wishes for great health, here is the BIG LIST of:
