CoQ10 facilitates the transformation of fats and sugars into energy inside the mitochondria.

Having the Best Life Boils Down to Having Enough Energy to Do The Things You Want To Do!

 Your energy levels will match your CoQ10 levels!  

Energy is made in our cellular mitochondria as fuel is burned in the presence of oxygen!

If we compared our cellular mitochondria to a car engine, CoQ10 would be the fuel injector (or carburetor and spark blugs for older cars) that increases the efficiency of fuel burning.

Since nothing is more basic to life than burning of fuel to make energy it follows that when CoQ10 levels diminish, basic cell metabolic functions are impaired, and the ability to live a productive life must necessarily diminish.

It is interesting that by the time someone reaches 80 years of age, 80% of the CoQ10 molecules that were in a person’s cells at age 25 are gone. By age 80, the pancreas which is responsible for digestive enzymes has lost 83% of its youthful CoQ10 levels. With less enzymes, no wonder we cannot digest our foods well as we used to. So, for people with poor digestion, CoQ10 supplementation is a must!

If you're over the age of 30, one of your first tactics for improving energy and preserving future health and longevity is supplementing with CoQ10.

CoQ10 Decreases in Human Tissues as We Age

Looking at the above charts/graphs... No wonder we have less energy when we are older .

  • No wonder that there are hundreds of CoQ10 products on the market... since CoQ10 supplementation really has an impact on the energy inside one’s cells.
  • No wonder that every cell functions better when we supplement with CoQ10.
  • No wonder our skin is dry and wrinkly.
  • No wonder our digestive enzymes (made in pancreas) are inadequate.
  • No wonder that most first heart attacks occur between the age of 56 and 76 (the average is 65.5 years of age).

It Doesn’t Matter Which Kind of CoQ10 We Eat

Some manufacturers claim that reduced CoQ10 (ubiquinol) is better than standard CoQ10 (ubiquinone). However, this is not true (it’s just marketing tactics with no basis in reality). The reality is that CoQ10 enters the body better in the presence of oils and spices (like black pepper/Bioperine).

However What is Eaten With CoQ10 Does Matter

CoQ10 absorbs better when it is present with one or more of the following: Vitamin E, Bioperine, or oils. Having one or more of these present in the stomach at the same helps increase the amount of CoQ10 that goes into the blood and to the cells, as shown in the following graphs. That's why CoQ10 Plus E includes them in their formulation.


This graph shows the amount of CoQ10 going to the blood after a single oral intake of 90 mg CoQ10 and 5 mg of Bioperine.

And the following graph shows the absolute change in serum CoQ10 after 14 days of supplementation with CoQ10 (90 mg daily) and Bioperine (5mg daily).

Finally, this graph shows the serum levels after a 21 day trial in terms of sustained CoQ10 increase.

Summary of CoQ10 Benefits:

  1. Helps reduce mitochondrial damage and enhances energy output, which is why CoQ10 supplementation is well known to support cardiovascular function.
  2. Scientists are now discovering that CoQ10 contributes to a longer life, the result of the supplement's augmentation of mitochondrial function in brain structure and function, lung defense mechanisms, and disorders related to poor glycemic control and the metabolic syndrome.
  3. Total body health depends heavily on maintaining mitochondrial integrity.
  4. CoQ10 represents an efficient way to optimize mitochondrial output by maintaining co-enzyme Q10 blood levels in youthful ranges.

CoQ10 - Frequently Asked Questions

How Much CoQ10 Should a Person Take?

  • As a general rule, the older a person is or the less healthy a person is, the more CoQ10 one should take. 100 or 200 mg of CoQ10 per day is sufficient for a 40 year old in good health.
  • As one approaches 60 years of age, 300 or 400 mg daily would be better.
  • Athletes and body builders, who demand more energy out of their mitochondria, often take 1,200 mg per day to minimize the free radical damage from their intense workouts.
  • Up to 3,000 mg per day has only been beneficial.
  • Since CoQ10 is expensive, most people supplement at levels far less than these large amounts. See our optimal dosing by age table.

If you’ve tried or researched CoQ10, you may be wondering: What’s the difference between ubiquinol and ubiquinone CoQ10? Is one better than the other? Read on to understand ubiquinol vs. ubiquinone.

The difference between ubiquinol and ubiquinone

Both ubiquinol and ubiquinone are forms of CoQ10 (co-enzyme Q10), an antioxidant and mitochondrial enzyme (chemical reaction enabler) often used to support increased energy, heart health, fertility, and overall wellness. Enzymes enable biological function and antioxidants are crucial for protecting the body’s cells against free radicals and oxidative stress, which can lead to chronic diseases. CoQ10 is both!

From a chemistry standpoint, the primary difference between ubiquinol and ubiquinone is that ubiquinol is the reduced form of CoQ10, whereas ubiquinone is the oxidized form. That means that ubiquinone has more electrons than ubiquinol. Inside the body, they change from one form to another as a part of normal function.

CoQ10 is produced naturally in the body, as well as comes from the diet. It helps to generate energy in all cells; the highest levels of CoQ10 are found in organs with high rates of metabolism such as the heart, kidney, spleen, and liver. In the body, CoQ10 molecules actually convert back and forth from the oxidized form to the reduced form and back again over and over.

Is ubiquinol better than ubiquinone?

Some researchers have hypothesized that ubiquinol is more “bio-available”. Bio-availability is a term that refers to the ability of a substance to be absorbed and used by the body. But, recent study data doesn't bear this hypothesis out in reality. A 2020 study found that there is no statistically significant difference in bio-availability between ubiquinol and ubiquinone. When consumed as ubiquinone, CoQ10 still appears in the blood almost exclusively as ubiquinol, indicating that the body is capable of easily converting the co-enzyme into its active form.

Benefits of ubiquinone or ubiquinol CoQ10

One notable thing about ubiquinone CoQ10 is its history there have been thousands of clinical trials conducted with CoQ10 (ubiquinone) — and very few with ubiquinol. (This is not to imply that ubiquinol would be less effective — it's just more expensive and therefore used less in studies.)

Ubiquinone appears to be more stable when compared to ubiquinol, and is less expensive to manufacture.

The benefits of taking ubiquinone CoQ10 include:

Using ubiquinone CoQ10 for fertility

As mentioned above, CoQ10 is an antioxidant, a compound that protects the human body’s cells against free radicals and oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress has been linked to male infertility, and is found in 30–80% of infertility cases. A man’s sperm quality often decreases as he ages; CoQ10 levels also decline with age, making high-energy functions like sperm development less efficient and more difficult. (CoQ10 levels also dip in women, affecting female fertility as well.)

As early as 1997, researchers have studied the correlation between CoQ10 and sperm health. Research has indicated that ubquinone CoQ10 supplementation can enhance fertility, possibly improving sperm concentration, motility (ability to swim), and morphology (size and shape of sperm) when taken as part of a healthy lifestyle. This research includes:

  • A 2009 study, in which patients with reduced sperm motility were treated with 200mg of CoQ10 per day for six months. Patients experienced increased antioxidant levels in semen and improved sperm motility during the course of the study.
  • A 2013 study, in which men with low sperm count and poor motility/morphology also received 200mg of CoQ10 daily, but for three months. Compared to the placebo group, the supplement group was associated with significant improvement in sperm morphology.
  • A 2020 study that pooled data from three clinical trials on CoQ10, in which researchers found that supplementation had a profound effect on sperm motility over a course of 3-6 months.
