Many Coenzyme Q10 products have labels that indicate that their product is better absorbed due to longtime beliefs surrounding ubiquinol (reduced Coenzyme Q10) being hard for the body to absorb. Many brands instead market ubiquinone, which is redox Coenzyme Q10 instead, since studies have been more supportive about this form being easier for the body to absorb. New research, however, is concluding that both of these forms are equal when it comes to the ability to be absorbed through the body.
- According to Coenzyme Q10 expert Dr. William Judy, there is very little difference in the absorption rates of ubiquinol and ubiquinone.
- Both forms of CoQ10 contain antioxidants and are critical for overall mitochondrial health.
- CoQ10 can be beneficial for those suffering from Parkinson's disease and has been shown to provide headache relief in adolescent and pediatric populations.
"Marketing terms such as “better absorbed” should be questioned unless the absorption or bioavailability is actually stated. Only when the actual absorption has been verified can the better absorbed product be determined."
