Supports cardiovascular health
1.2 million (6%) Australians adults over 18 years of age have one or more conditions related to cardiovascular disease2. There are many causes for cardiovascular disease, but plaque formation inside the arteries due to high cholesterol levels is one of them. Studies show Ubiquinol can help reduce the risk on plaque formation, and that it therefore can be beneficial to support cardiovascular health3.
Research shows that taking Coenzyme Q10 supplements can also can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels by significantly increasing HDL levels (‘good cholesterol’), even in those already taking statin drugs to manage their cholesterol levels4.
Statin drugs help manage cholesterol levels by blocking cholesterol production in the body. Unfortunately, they also block the production of Ubiquinol inside the body5. This can result in fatigue and muscle or bone pain for those taking statin medications. Studies show that 15 – 25% of those on statin medication experience muscle pain as a side-effect, and that up to 60% of statin users who experience these side effects stop statin therapy. This is associated with worse cardiovascular outcomes for the patient6.
Research shows that supplementing with Ubiquinol may help reduce muscle pain and fatigue as a result of statin use. This might stop patients from discontinuing statin use, and help them achieve better health outcomes7-9. Additionally, Ubiquinol may also significantly increase HDL levels to further improve cardiovascular health4.
Ubiquinol plays a role in the energy production in the mitochondria (‘power houses’) inside each single cell in the body. Unfortunately, the production of ubiquinol in the body starts to decline from the age of 20 onward, with a sharp drop after 40 years of age. At the same time, the body’s ability to convert the inactive form ubidecarenone into the active form ubiquinol reduces.
This may result in low levels of ubiquinol in the body, and can lead to feeling increasingly tired or fatigued as we grow older10.
Maintains muscle function
Muscles can feel sore after a bout of strenuous exercise. This is because strenuous exercise causes oxidative stress and muscle damage, as well as mild inflammation in the muscles.
Clinical research has shown that supplementing with Ubiquinol prior to strenuous exercise can help reduce muscle damage during exercise, improve performance and improve muscle repair after exercise, thus helping reduce muscle pain and improving recovery after strenuous exercise11-14. This makes Microgenics Ubiquinol Active a good product to recommend to those browsing for sports nutrition and supplements.
