The antioxidant that supports your cardiovascular health

It has a host of health benefits – and here is how ubiquinol can support your cardiovascular system health.

Beating on average around 72 times each minute, the heart is a hardworking muscular organ that pumps nutrient-rich blood around our bodies 24/7, delivering oxygen to every single organ and cell.

It goes without saying a healthy heart is important and is one of your most precious commodities, particularly as you get older, when it has to work harder.

This where you might like to get acquainted with ubiquinol – an antioxidant that has many health benefits, including supporting your cardiovascular system health.

Keen to know more about ubiquinol?

Stay with us as we get a little technical.

Ubiquinol is the active and more easily absorbed form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a naturally occurring antioxidant, which provides our cells with energy.

Ubiquinol is the only form of CoQ10 that also functions as an antioxidant, helping counter the effects of increased oxidative stress that occurs naturally as we age.

Science has found that not only can ubiquinol help to support a healthy cardiovascular system, it also helps in maintaining healthy levels of LDL (low-density lipoprotein, also known as the “bad” cholesterol because it collects in the walls of our blood vessels).

Our bodies have to convert the conventional (oxidised) form of CoQ10 (ubiquinone) into ubiquinol before it can be used to create cellular energy and be utilised for its benefits.

This conversion gets harder to do as we age, and from about the age of 30 this process becomes less efficient.

But, in good news, it’s available in supplement form.

Which makes the thought of a daily supplement an easy way to up your “U” factor and support your cardiovascular health and general health and wellbeing.
