NuMedica CoQ-Clear 50 Ubiquinone 120 Softgels
In the body, CoQ10 exists either in its oxidized form, ubiquinone, or in its reduced form, ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ10 and may be better absorbed than ubiquinone in some individuals. When oxidized CoQ10 (ubiquinone) is used by the body, it transforms and becomes ubiquinol. In the same way, reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) becomes ubiquinone when it carries out its role in the body. Regardless of what form of CoQ10 you take as a supplement, the body is able to convert the consumed form to the other form as needed. In other words, if you take a reduced CoQ10 supplement (ubiquinol), the body can convert the reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) to the oxidized CoQ10 (ubiquinone) and vice versa. This conversion takes place to maintain a state of equilibrium between reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) and oxidized CoQ10 (ubiquinone).
