CoQH-CF™ is a reduced form of coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinol). This is the actual antioxidant form of coenzyme Q10, and it also supports cellular energy production. A unique softgel delivery system protects and stabilizes the content, providing an efficient way to maintain adequate ubiquinol levels in those whose ability to produce or convert it has been hindered by oxidative stress or other causes.* Regular supplemental coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is oxidized and must be converted to the reduced form in the body (ubiquinol), for effective antioxidant activity. The many benefits of supplemental CoQ10 as ubiquinone are dampened by the fact that only a small percentage is utilized by the body, requiring large doses for maximum results. Those who are under increased oxidative stress, or are simply getting older, typically are even less able to convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol.

CoQ10 is essential for the health of our cells, tissues and organs.* It belongs to a family of lipid-soluble ubiquinones, present throughout the body, and it is the predominant CoQ form found in humans. It is most concentrated in cells of the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas. The body’s production of CoQ10 peaks around age 20 and then declines. For many decades, supplemental CoQ10 has been used throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States for its support of cellular energy, antioxidant function and cardiovascular health.* CoQ10 plays an essential role in the mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC), the major metabolic pathway for making energy in every cell of the body. CoQ10 functions as an electron carrier in the ETC, linking the various enzymes of the chain, and the production of ATP is dependent on sufficient levels of CoQ10 in the mitochondrial membrane. CoQ10 is also an important antioxidant, protecting the mitochondria from free radical damage. The process of electron transport produces oxygen free radicals, which are then trapped by CoQ10 and vitamin E. CoQ10 reduces the initiation and propagation of lipid peroxidation in cell membranes and in lipoprotein fractions, and it works synergistically with vitamin E, helping to spare it.
