Puritan’s Pride® Ubiquinol 50 mg

Puritan’s Pride® Ubiquinol 50 mg is our most customizable formula available. With each rapid release softgel delivering 50 mg of Ubiquinol, you can take anywhere from two-to-six softgels per day depending on your specific needs. Just two daily softgels provides your body with antioxidant support in the form that is active and ready to fight free radicals.**

Regular Co Q-10 supplements must be converted to ubiquinol in the body to provide antioxidant support. In addition to its advanced antioxidant support, ubiquinol provides the heart and energy production support that Co Q-10 is most famous for.**

Individuals looking for more advanced heart support can increase their intake to up to six capsules per day to help maintain healthy blood pressure levels already within a normal range.** High daily dosages of ubiquinol can help to increase the levels of Co Q-10 in the body to support cardiovascular wellness and overall health benefits.** If you are unsure which dose is right for you, we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional.

Ubiquinol: The Advanced Co Q-10

You are probably familiar with coenzyme Q-10 (Co Q-10). But did you know that it exists in two forms?

Originally, Co Q-10 supplements were only available as Co Q-10 in its oxidized form, ubiquinone. Now the reduced form of Co Q-10, ubiquinol is also readily available in dietary supplements. Co Q-10 is recycled back and forth between these two forms depending on the demands of the body.

Ubiquinol is the most common form of Co Q-10 found in the body. In fact, it accounts for about 80% of the total Co Q-10 found in the plasma, intestines and liver.1 Ubiquinol is the active form that is ready to fight free radicals.** Free radicals are unstable compounds that can lead to oxidative stress which can cause damage to cells. When ubiquinol encounters a free radical, it neutralizes the free radical in a process that converts ubiquinol to ubiquinone.** To fight another free radical, ubiquinone must first be converted back to ubiquinol.**

Supplementing with either ubiquinol or ubiquinone is effective at restoring low blood levels of Co Q-10 to the population average.2 However, ubiquinol may be a better choice for older adults, those with high Co Q-10 needs, or anyone wanting to quickly replenish their Co Q-10 levels.** Ubiquinol supplements have been shown to increase levels of Co Q-10 in the blood by 110% more when compared to regular Co Q-10 supplements.**


JUST THE FACTS ON UBIQUINOL

Ubiquinol levels in the body reach their peak by age 20 and
decrease by up to 50% in different parts of the body by age 80.3

Ubiquinol Levels

Statins can lead to a 51%
decrease in Ubiquinol plasma levels
within 30 days of use.++


2

Dietary Intake

The average dietary intake of Ubiquinol is only about 3-5 milligrams per day.3 Not nearly enough to replenish levels lost due to age-related decline or prescription drugs.

How much do I need?

Depending on your needs, Ubiquinol supplementation recommendations can range anywhere from 60-600 milligrams per day to increase tissue concentrations.

++ Ubiquinol is not intended to serve as a replacement for statin therapy, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with Ubiquinol
Ubiquinol’s Role in Supporting Energy**

Ubiquinol acts as a key component in our mitochondrial machinery involved in making up a large percentage of the body’s energy.

This energy is produced via the electron transport chain in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) across the inner mitochondrial membrane.1

Ubiquinol for
Heart Health**

Ubiquinol is vital for the muscle of the heart.2

The reason is due to the heart’s requirement of a constant supply of ATP energy. While blood vessels transport blood, the heart provides the force to pump blood around the body.

As a result, Ubiquinol concentration is an important determination of heart function and cardiovascular health.5 Historically, scientific studies evaluating the effects of Ubiquinol have been mainly focused on its potential support to cardiovascular health.9**

Statins and Ubiquinol

Ubiquinol supplements can help replenish what is lost with age or what statin medications deplete.

However, Ubiquinol is not intended to serve as a replacement for statin therapy, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with Ubiquinol.

Ubiquinol supplementation recommendations can range
anywhere from 60-600 milligrams per day.

As you get older opt for a higher dose Ubiquinol supplement, but don’t forget to choose a highly purified Ubiquinol like Q-Sorb™ Ubiquinol.

Top FAQs About Ubiquinol

Why should I supplement with Ubiquinol?

As we get older, our natural Ubiquinol levels decline, especially in the heart, other organs and tissues with high-energy requirements, and in outer layers of the skin. A highly purified Ubiquinol supplement like Q-Sorb™ may assist in keeping these levels up, especially as we get older.**

Can I get Ubiquinol from my diet?

Although Ubiquinol can be found in foods like fish, pork, and beef, we may not obtain enough Ubiquinol in our daily diets, especially as cooking methods like frying reduces the natural Ubiquinol content in these foods. Following a plant-based diet may also mean lower Ubiquinol intake. By taking a Ubiquinol supplement, this gap in our diet may be filled.

How does Ubiquinol work?

Ubiquinol is needed for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the energy our body cells use to perform their daily activities optimally. Certain cells in the body are more metabolically active and have higher energy requirements. Ubiquinol levels are naturally higher in the heart and skeletal muscles for this reason.

I take a statin and my doctor recommended I take Ubiquinol, why?

Studies have found that statins deplete Ubiquinol levels in the body. A Ubiquinol supplement can help replenish what a statin medication might deplete. Please be aware that Ubiquinol is not intended as a replacement for statin therapy, nor should you discontinue any prescription medication while supplementing with Ubiquinol.

What is Q-Sorb™ Ubiquinol?

Puritan's Pride's own Q-Sorb™ Ubiquinol is a naturally fermented, highly purified form of Ubiquinol. We take the same form of Ubiquinol your body naturally produces and enrobe it in naturally sourced oils to improve absorption. Q-Sorb™ is available in rapid-release softgels in various dosages to suit your needs.


Top Ubiquinol Myths

Myth: Ubiquinol is an energy stimulant or will give you the "jitters"

Although Ubiquinol helps the body produce energy, this energy production is at a cellular level so Ubiquinol will not give you the sudden energy boost you may get from consuming caffeine or a sugary snack.

Myth: I take a multivitamin and mineral every day, so I don’t need Ubiquinol

Most multivitamin and mineral supplements contain no or very low quantities of Ubiquinol. Additionally to support absorption, Ubiquinol is best taken in a softgel along with a meal. Ubiquinol supplementation may be especially important as we age as our Ubiquinol levels naturally decline as we get older.

Myth: Ubiquinol is easily absorbed in tablets or in powder form

Efficient absorption of any ingredient is dependent on a variety of factors, but with Ubiquinol, delivery form is of particular importance. Taking Ubiquinol in a softgel rather than in a powder form makes Ubiquinol more absorbable. By choosing a high purity Ubiquinol like Q-Sorb™ Ubiquinol, you know you’re getting not only quality you can trust, but also that your body is going to absorb it more efficiently too.

Myth: I can stop my cholesterol-lowering medication if I use Ubiquinol

No. Ubiquinol is not intended to serve as a replacement for statin medication, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with Ubiquinol without consulting your doctor.

Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the size I will keeping buying this product. I like the results of my last test.
Date published: 2017-09-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with Ubiquinol I was taking Co q 10 from the pharmacy when I found Ubiquinol in my catalogue. It made sense to me that Co q 10 was activated by another agent. My diet is not great, so I don't know if I ingest what is needed. I have had no problems with side-effects. I believe that I am getting the necessary chemicals that my doctor tells me to take. The cost is a little more, but it evens out when I can buy 1 and get 2 more at no extra cost. I recommend this product (and company) to my family and friends.
