Rapid-action VESIsorb® Ubiquinol-QH is the most advanced coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) supplement available. Its fast-track patented VESIsorb® delivery system ‘pre-digests’ ubiquinol for unprecedented absorption, higher blood plasma levels and up to 6x longer-lasting action. VESIsorb® Ubiquinol-QH is ideal for restoring or boosting energy, managing heart health, boosting brain function, supporting active lifestyles and for adults over the age of 40 whose ability to produce ubiquinol in the body significantly declines with age.
Understanding the difference between ubiquinol and ubiquinone is important if you want to obtain the key benefits associated with coenzyme Q10. There are still absorption issues, however, even when supplementing with standard ubiquinol. As a fat-soluble nutrient, absorption and bioavailability of ubiquinol are generally poor. The gut’s water layer barrier makes it difficult for large fat-soluble nutrients to get past; unassimilated particles are left unabsorbed and excreted by the body. VESIsorb® overcomes absorption issues associated with standard oil-based forms of ubiquinol by mimicking the natural transport system of the intestine. Patented technology converts ubiquinol into a water-soluble nutrient, in effect pre-digesting it into tiny water-soluble particles that pass easily through the gut wall and into the bloodstream for rapid tissue distribution throughout the cells of the body. Enhanced absorption, longer-lasting action and superior tissue distribution lead to superior health benefits over standard oil-based ubiquinol supplements of the same dose.
Directions for use
- Adults and children aged twelve years and over should take 1 capsule daily.
For optimal results, take ubiquinol coenzyme Q10 with food. It is not advisable to exceed the above dose unless advised by a healthcare practitioner.
Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring compound, found in low quantities in certain foods and also produced naturally within the body. There are two types of CoQ10 used in supplements: ubiquinone and ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is bio-identical to over 95%, which means the body doesn’t have to convert it into a usable form - it is already 'body-ready'. Ubiquinone has to be converted to ubiquinol in order for it to be of use to the body and our ability to do this reduces with age. With a dual role as both a coenzyme in the body's energy production processes and as an antioxidant, ubiquinol offers benefits for cardiovascular health, energy production within the heart, brain & muscles and protection from free radicals. Ubiquinol is altogether therapeutically superior to standard CoQ10 supplements containing the oxidised form, ubiquinone.
CoQ10 may be able to help with carbohydrate metabolism. Animal studies suggest that animals with diabetes are deficient in CoQ10. Scientific studies using coenzyme Q10 suggest that supplementation may positively influence blood sugar levels. Coenzyme Q10 also supports healthy circulation and aids oxygen transport to the muscles.
Approximately 96% of total CoQ10 in healthy individuals is in the form of ubiquinol. In conditions associated with high levels of oxidative stress, ubiquinol levels are significantly lower. Ubiquinone can be converted by the body to ubiquinol via a multi-step process, but a deficiency in any of the co-factor nutrients (vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6, B12 & C) can reduce the conversion.
Ubiquinol is ideal for people whose natural ability to convert it from ubiquinone may be compromised. Ubiquinol production declines in adults after the age of 20 and is significantly compromised after the age of 40. Certain medications such as cholesterol-lowering drugs are also known to reduce ubiquinol levels in the body. Supplementing with ‘body-ready’ ubiquinol bypasses the chemical conversion and reliably delivers higher blood levels of CoQ10.
