Is water-soluble ubiquinol really a preferred form?
As a supplement, CoQ10 can be found in the marketplace as oxidized ubiquinone or reduced ubiquinol (in an assortment of liposmal, micelle and nanoparticle forms). These forms are converted from the oxidized to the reduced form of CoQ10 and vice versa as needed by the body. Since reduced
ubiquinol is highly unstable, it is readily converted to oxidized ubiquinone in the presence of oxygen, light and an acid media such as hydrochloric acid produced by the stomach. Further, reducing CoQ10 to a nanoparticle such as CoQ9, 8 or 7 by cutting off its lipophilic tail, is not a natural process. Although it does become more water soluble, the natural CoQ10 molecule has been
lost. Ubiquinol products in the liposomal, micelle or nanoparticle form are water-soluble microspheres that can rapidly disperse in water, but this does
not enhance the absorption of this altered form of CoQ10 in the intestines. For best performance, the CoQ10 molecule must be absorbed by the intestines in its complete lipid form, its true fat-soluble form, for optimal nutrition.
Thus, the preferred form of CoQ10 is one that is in its natural, original form. Premier CoQ10 offers live-source CoQ10 (ubiquinone) that is derived from natural fermentation which is in its natural, original form. ¬In contrast, the more expensive, water-soluble form of CoQ10 as ubiquinol has been altered to make it more water soluble. When this unnatural form of CoQ10 hits the acid media of the stomach, it becomes oxidized into the ubiquinone form. But it is the lipid-soluble form of CoQ10 that is needed to be absorbed by the intestines. Unaltered, natural ubiquinone as in Premier CoQ10 is preferred because it is in its original, fat-soluble state. Premier CoQ10 offers your clients a wise choice in the selection of CoQ10 present in its natural form to deliver the wide range of its famous benefits, including cardiovascular, nerve, brain and immune support.
