Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) 300mg provides a high strength COQ10 (ubiquinone) supplement derived using 100% fermentation processed from natural food sources only.
Fermentation of CoQ10 results in a pure “trans” form of Q10 which is the form which naturally occurs in the body and is therefor more easily recognised and processed internally. The CoQ10 is carried in specific orange coloured capsules which prevent light from going causing CoQ10 oxidation – important for maintaining quality and stability of the supplement.
Although manufacture of natural CoQ10 is a difficult and more costly process compared to synthetic processes, safety and efficacy of CoQ10 cannot be guaranteed without 100% fermentation. For that reason Troo Health CoQ10 is 100% naturally fermented.
Co-Q10 is a vitamin like substance which plays a central role in the body’s energy supply process, acting alongside enzymes (thus the name coenzyme Q10) to convert sugars and fat into energy. Coenzyme Q10 is also has an important role as an antioxidant within the body. Coenzyme quinones occur in several chemical forms, with coenzyme Q10 being the only form found in human tissues.
Ubiquinol or Ubiquinone?
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is also referred to as ubiquinol or ubiquinone, names of different forms of CoQ10 found within the body.
There is a common myth about CoQ10 that ubiquinol is more effective than ubiquinone. There is no valid research to support this.
The truth is that 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 oxidised CoQ10 (ubiquinone) and vice versa. This conversion takes place to maintain a state of equilibrium between reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) and oxidised CoQ10 (ubiquinone).
Unquestionably, both forms—ubiquinone and ubiquinol—are effective and essential to important pathways in the body, and in states of need, either form can be reduced or oxidised to form the other.
Under normal circumstances, the body is able to maintain adequate levels of coenzyme Q10. However, coenzyme Q10 levels decrease with age, and are depleted by intense physical exercise or illness.
