CoQ10 Ubiquinol from Progressive Labs is a softgel that contains 100 mg per softgel of the active form of CoQ10 – ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is the reduced, active antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).‡
Produced naturally within the body, ubiquinol is used in cellular energy production. In addition to its critical role in energy production, it is one of the most powerful known lipid soluble antioxidants available, protecting the body’s cells from damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals.‡
Supplementing with ubiquinol is ideal for those with an impaired ability to convert ubiquinone into ubiquinol, since it is reduced and ready for use in the body’s cellular energy production process.‡
KanekaQH™ is ubiquinol, the reduced, active antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10. Introduced in 2006, KanekaQH™ is the first supplemental form of bioidentical ubiquinol ever developed and is manufactured exclusively by Kaneka Corporation.‡
Kaneka ubiquinol and Kaneka ubiquinone are produced via the same production method: a fermentation process using a food grade yeast. Ubiquinol is quite unstable and easily oxidized to the ubiquinone, even by simple exposure to the air. Kaneka is now able to obtain and keep ubiquinol stable for a long period of time. The Kaneka ubiquinol is transported under appropriate conditions under nitrogen gas to avoid oxidation. Also, at the encapsulation process, appropriate conditions can avoid oxidation and will guarantee high content of reduced CoQ10 in the capsules.‡
Because ubiquinol is one of the strongest lipid-soluble antioxidants available, KanekaQH™ provides defense against oxidative damage to the body’s cells, including lipids, proteins and DNA. It also plays an essential role in cellular ATP (energy) production.‡
