10 Best CoQ10 Supplements

best ubiquinol

CoQ10, also know as Coenzyme Q10, is an essential antioxidant produced naturally in the body. It is essential for healthy cell function – cell energy, production, and maintenance. As you age or experience physical exertion, your Coq10 levels diminish. Fortunately, supplementation can help reinvigorate your levels of CoQ10 in a safe and healthy manner.

NOTE: CoQ10 converts to Ubiquinol in the body. For simplicity sake, we will use CoQ10 and Ubiquinol interchangeably. Studies show that there is no significant difference between supplementing with CoQ10 and Uiquinol. Both in affect, and absorption, studies show no difference.

Benefits of Healthy CoQ10 Levels

Maintaining healthy levels of CoQ10 will benefit oxygen utilization and energy production. Supplementation of CoQ10 has been shown to be effective in reducing the deterioration of the brain. Additional studies have shown a reduction in oxidative stress, aiding in long term brain preservation and disease prevention.

Noticeable benefits of CoQ10 supplementation is increased energy or reduced fatigue. [1]

CoQ10 has been listed as one of the top supplements available for managing migraines and reducing symptoms of depression. Certain diseases have been shown to lower natural levels of CoQ10 such as, Prader-Willi syndrome, male infertility, Peyronie’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease. Supplementation may help regulate these lowered levels, and aid in reducing negative disease symptoms.

New research is showing CoQ10 supplementation to be highly affective in reducing symptoms of fibromyalgia. According to research done at the University of Sevilla (Spain), patience taking 300mg a day of CoQ10 noticed reduction of pain, tiredness in the morning, and fatigue to a p-value of .001 (which means the chance the findings were do to coincidence is only 1% – clinical standard is 5%). [2]

Safety and Dosing

CoQ10 is believed to be relatively safe for long term use. Clinical studies have been tested for as long as 18 months up to 1200 mg a day. Recommended daily dosage is usually between 50-200 mg/day, although many clinical studies dosed up to 300mg daily with little to no negative side effects. .

Simply order a bag and mix the powders into a drink of your choice (or into capsules). The only downside is you have to measure and mix/encapsulate yourself. Not always convenient.

Comments

  1. Is CoQ10 good for younger people? I can’t find much documentation on supplementing CoQ10 or Ubiquinol for people under 40.

    • The under40 crowd have nothing inside their heads to comprehend what CoQ10 really does in their dumb bodies.

    • Coq10 is for everyone to take it does give energy but people who take statins drugs normally should take this as it will help them maintain coq10 as the statins drug deplits it. There are two different kinds so you might want to do research on which is best to buy.

  2. People under 40 should have normal levels of CoQ10 naturally. It isn’t until later in life (generally) that peoples CoQ10 levels start to dip. Or health conditions as stated above.

    However, the studies that have been done have shown it to be safe with limited side effects.

  3. I take Genceutic naturals 24hr CoQ10 in 100 mg. I was hoping to see it on your list. It claims 40% more consistent absorption than ubiquinol, and other benefits. I’m very happy with it, and it’s in veggie capsules.

  4. I used to use this CoEnzyme Q10 cream, but recently I switched to the Made from Earth Vitamin Firming Serum and I am seeing amazing results. In addition to the CoQ10, it has all these other vitamins that my face is really responding well to. Getting alot of compliments at work lately !

    Hello SupplementHQ Team,

    In 2008, despite being a female aged 60, slim and fit, I had a myocardial infarction and needed a triple by pass – which has been amazingly successful!

    Post operatively I was commenced on a statin. After taking the stain for approx 6 months my body rebelled. My blood pressure was about 160/110 (it is usually around 110/70). Also my creatinine kinase level was elevated to 1060 (from skeletal muscle breakdown) ((levels should be under 160)) and my liver function tests were very elevated. My GP was unable to bring my blood pressure down with medications. My naturopath commenced me on Co Q 10. 48 hrs later my blood pressure was back to normal.

    Bioceuticals brand was used. I continue to use them. You have not mentioned them in your appraisal. Have you checked them – they are usually practitioner prescribed.

    Thanks

    Lorri Sheldon

  6. Dena Wiltse says:

    My doctor wants me on 1200-1600mg of CO Q10 q/day and said one Ubiquinol tablet would equal 1200mg of CO Q10. I haven’t been able to find Ubiquinol that equals 1200mg of CO Q10 – any suggestions?

  7. Luz stella arias says:

    Thanks for your advice. What is your opinion about the brand Reserveage Nutrition?

  8. Ana Herrera says:

    What do you know about MAX-Q10? They claim to be the best C0-Q10 in the market.

    • pam boatwright says:

      I would like to also know about Max -Q10. It has specific ingredients that you have not mentioned

  9. How about Myoqinon CoQ10 which is the only registered medicine for adjuvant heart therapy? It has been used in more than 75 human clinical trials
