Traditional CoQ10 supplements are made using the oxidized form of CoQ10 known as ubiquinone. Once absorbed, ubiquinone needs to be converted by the body to ubiquinol, the active form of CoQ10.
About 90% of the CoQ10 used by the body is the ubiquinol form. However, the ubiquinone to ubiquinol conversion process involves 17 different steps – and gets progressively more difficult for your body to do efficiently once you’re past the age of 20.
Until the last decade, ubiquinol wasn’t available for use in supplements because it is easily oxidized (causing it to revert to ubiquinone). That changed with the introduction of a stabilized ubiquinol called Kaneka QH™ – which is used in TrueCoQ10™.
TrueCoQ10™ is also made with the CoQH-CF™ technology which helps in both the absorption and stabilization of the Kaneka QH™ ubiquinol.
CoQ10 used in supplements tends to crystallize at normal temperatures. These crystals make it very difficult for your body to absorb CoQ10. CoQH-CF™ eliminates this concern and keeps the ubiquinol fully solubilized – allowing TrueCoQ10™ to be readily and quickly absorbed.
The combined CoQH-CF™ and 100mg of Kaneka QH™ ubiquinol may raise blood CoQ10 levels 4.3x better than regular CoQ10.
As important, CoQH-CF™ uses alpha-lipoic acid and other nutritional compounds to make sure Kaneka QH™ ubiquinol stays as ubiquinol in the bottle and doesn’t oxidize.
Together, Kaneka QH™ ubiquinol and CoQH-CF™ help maximize the benefits of supplementing with TrueCoQ10™.
