Coenzyme Q10 is a natural substance from our food, which is also in the body
can be made by yourself. Particularly high concentrations of coenzyme Q10
are found in organs where a lot of energy is needed, such as in
Heart, brain, kidney, liver and muscles.
Ubiquinol : the body active coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10 exists in two forms, as ubiquinone and ubiquinol. Coenzyme Q10 in form
of ubiquinone must first be converted in the body into the active form ubiquinol.
In Sanutrition Ubiquinol, coenzyme Q10 is available to the body in the immediately available
bioactive ubiquinol form available.

Occurrence in food Coenzyme Q10 is a fat-soluble endogenous substance that can be supplied through the diet or produced by the body itself. In the course of physiological changes, the endogenous synthesis rate can be restricted or the demand increased and an additional exogenous supply can become necessary. About 5 – 10 mg of coenzyme Q10 are supplied daily via the diet. Although the fat-soluble substance is found in many foods, its concentration in the food is usually low. The best suppliers of coenzyme Q10 are considered to be meat and certain types of fish (e.g. sardines, mackerel), and in vegetable terms wheat germ, soybeans, walnuts and almonds.
Physiological effects Energy metabolism: Is essential for electron transfer of the mitochondrial respiratory chain for energy production (ATP) Antioxidant: Participation as redox partner in antioxidative processes Reduce lipid peroxidation and increase oxidation resistance of lipids such as LDL cholesterol. Cell membranes: stabilization of cell membranes by controlling ion channels. Increase of membrane fluidity and vitality Immune system: increase of phagocytosis activity of macrophages and stimulation of proliferation of granulocytes.
Increased demand Persons over 40 years of age, low-fat diets, reduction diets, bronchial asthma, burnout, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes mellitus, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular diseases, statin therapy, migraine, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, malabsorption due to disturbances in bile function and in gastrointestinal disorders.
The physiological importance of coenzyme Q10 Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is an endogenous substance similar to vitamin E. Its roles are in two main areas: electron transfer in the mitochondrial respiratory chain and participation as a redox partner in antioxidant processes. Coenzyme Q10 is thus involved in ATP synthesis and thus fundamentally in energy production in the cells. Suboptimal processes in the mitochondrial citrate cycle lead to an insufficient supply of biochemical forms of energy, which manifests symptomatically in the tissue and at the organ level. Skeletal muscle and cardiac muscle are primarily affected (1). Due to its central role in the antioxidant protection of biological membranes, coenzyme Q10 contributes to the strengthening of immune defenses, promotes the integrity and stabilization of cell membranes, and prevents radical-induced aging processes of cellular organs.
Coenzyme Q10 – a conditionally essential nutrient Coenzyme Q10 is an endogenous substance that can be synthesized by the organism itself as well as taken in with food. In healthy people, coenzyme Q10 is not an essential compound. In the course of physiological changes, where the synthesis rate is limited or the demand is increased, an exogenous supply may become necessary. Coenzyme Q10 is therefore classified as a conditionally essential nutrient (2), the supplementation of which becomes necessary in the case of certain diseases and increased requirements. These include heart disease, diabetes mellitus, neurodegenerative diseases and tumor diseases, as well as aging processes and competitive sports and increased oxidative stress (3).
Ubiquinone – Ubiquinol Coenzyme Q10 exists in two biochemical forms, as ubiquinone and as reduced ubiquinol. Both compounds are ingested with food and both exist in the body. The reduced (non-oxidized) ubiquinol is the more active form of coenzyme Q10. Coenzyme Q10 as ubiquinone must first be converted into the active ubiquinol form in the body via several enzymatic steps, a process that is influenced by selenium and zinc status and can be limited with increasing age or in the case of illness.
Higher bioavailability and better mitochondrial presence of ubiquinol. Ubiquinol has two additional hydrogen groups compared to ubiquinone, which increases the polarity of the benzoquinone ring. This fact could be responsible for the observed better bioavailability of ubiquinol. In a study with Biogena Coenzyme Q10 active Gold Ubiquinol, the active reduced form showed a greatly improved absorption rate. After only one month, plasma Q10 levels of participants supplemented with 50 mg/d ubiquinol were nearly twice those of participants receiving 120 mg/d ubiquinone (4).
The results of the performance tests showed that the higher plasma levels also lead to a better mitochondrial presence and thus to an increased energy supply. Again, the ubiquinol group was far superior to the ubiquinone group in all parameters (5).
Further studies show that in cardiac patients who respond inadequately to ubiquinone supplementation and show unsatisfactory clinical improvements, substitution with the active ubiquinol can achieve both a significant increase in plasma levels and an increase in cardiac function and a favorable clinical outcome (5).
Bioidentical, 100% natural all-trans coenzyme Q10 Coenzyme Q10 is available on the market in different qualities, which is why reputable suppliers pay attention to a high-quality and safe source of the coenzyme Q10 used. The Japanese company Kaneka has been one of the world’s leading coenzyme Q10 producers for 25 years and has further consolidated its position as an innovative and reputable Q10 supplier with a new, hitherto unique manufacturing process. Kaneka coenzyme Q10 is formed in biosynthesis processes by special yeast cells, from which a bioidentical coenzyme Q10 is obtained in the extraction process. As a result, Kaneka Coenzyme Q10 is completely similar to the natural all-trans Coenzyme Q10 found in foods and is free of synthetic cis-isomers. All steps of the manufacturing process meet pharmaceutical GMP standards, ensure reliable and consistent substrate quality and are certified kosher. Kaneka coenzyme Q10 has also been tested for toxicological safety and found to be safe and well tolerated at doses up to 900 mg/day in healthy volunteers (28).
