Ubiquinol Benefits for Heart
Ubiquinol studies suggest the nutrient’s most important role may be in the cardiovascular system, where it appears to enhance heart health and blood vessel health in a number of different ways.
- Promotes and maintains peak cardiac energy.
- Protects heart tissues from free radical damage.
- Fights oxidation of artery-clogging LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.
- Promotes clear, free-flowing circulation.
- Boosts heartbeat output and efficiency.
- Supports healthy blood pressure.
These Ubiquinol benefits all point to a stronger, healthier, and more energetic heart.
“I recommend Ubiquinol in my practice because it provides the optimal benefits of CoQ10 in a form more easily assimilated in the body. Many cholesterol-lowering drugs reduce CoQ10 levels in the body – which actually puts patients at higher risk! New research shows that Ubiquinol dramatically improves the heart’s pumping ability! I believe we’ve just touched the surface in terms of what Ubiquinol can do in cardiovascular health.”

Ubiquinol Restores what Statins Deplete
Over 20 million Americans take statin drugs for high cholesterol. While these drugs help many Americans, statin side effects create a health paradox:
Statin drugs block our bodies’ natural CoQ10 production and deplete both CoQ10 and Ubiquinol blood levels.
Some experts suggest this statin-induced nutrient depletion may actually put patients at higher risk for heart problems. Thankfully, Ubiquinol supplementation can replenish what Statin drugs deplete.
Did you know? CoQ10 many different benefits associated with heart health are actually delivered by CoQ10′s active form: Ubiquinol. CoQ10 side effects include reduced absorption in adults age 40+.
Ubiquinol Research: Heart Energizer
After the switch, patients’ CoQ10 blood levels increased 4X. Meanwhile, their EF (heart pumping ability) jumped from 22% to 39%. Sub-35% EF is considered a life-threatening crisis.
Researchers concluded that Ubiquinol has dramatically improved absorption in patients with severe heart failure, and is accompanied by an increase in CoQ10 plasma levels that is associated with clinical improvement.
“In 1999, I underwent an aortic valve replacement for a diagnosis of stenosis with congestive heart failure. The results of this procedure was excellent! In October 2007, I developed severe fatigue and noticed a pulse rate in the low 60s. I notified my cardiologist. During testing, I came across an ad for Ubiquinol describing how it may “help cardiovascular health and promote healthy circulation through myocardial tissue.” It was also pointed out that with aging, CoQ10 was not as effective as Ubiquinol. I immediately ordered 50 mg softgels. Within a week the change in my energy level and my heart rate were dramatically improved! I would describe Ubiquinol as a ‘gift from God!’ I continue to enjoy excellent energy and my resting pulse is 76. I play golf and drive a car as much as I want to. I will be 85 in 2010.”

Ubiquinol Benefits: Reduced LDL Cholesterol
German researchers recently found that supplementing with Ubiquinol appeared to reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in one study. (IUBMB Life. 2011 Jan;63(1):42-8. DOI: 10.1002/iub.413).
Researchers tested 53 men with an average age of 30, and observed how a 14 day period of supplementing with 150 mg/d of Ubiquinol affected each subject’s cholesterol plasma levels. At study’s end, subjects who took ubiquinol showed significant reductions (over 12%, in fact) of their LDL cholesterol level.
