CoQ10 Ubiquinol 400mg is the Natural Form of Co-Enzyme 10
Coenzyme Q10 or Co-Q10 is a vitamin-like compound also called ubiquinol. It is an essential component of cells and is necessary for mitochondrial energy production. Years of research has shown that coenzyme q10 supplements support healthy cardiovascular and immune system functions in addition to improving energy production.

Your Body and Co-Q10
In the human body, CoQ-10 is found concentrated in the heart and liver tissue, where it functions in the respiratory electron transport system in mitochondria. Consequently, its toxicity to the human body is extremely low. It has ten isoprene units forming a side chain attached to benzoquinone ring and all the ten double bonds in the side chain should be ''trans'' form to be physiologically effective in medicinal applications.
Two manufacturing processes are currently being used in Japan to commercially produce CoQ-10:
1. Chemical synthesis process
2. Microbial fermentation process
In the case of chemical synthesis, relatively higher rates of ''cis''-isomers in the side chain (pharmacologically less active form) and Coenzyme Q-9 which has only 9 isoprene units in the side chain are formed as byproducts which must be eliminated from the final product through a purification process. On the other hand, the natural fermentation process yields the ''all-trans'' form Q-10 (pharmacologically active form), resulting in scarcely a trace of Coenzyme Q-9.
From 1969 to 1978, our Japanese vendor had expanded its efforts in the research and development of Single Cell Proteins (microbial protein). They have established a unique continuous fermentation process utilizing these single microbial cells, which does not allow contamination by undesirable organisms.
Based on this technology, they have developed their own proprietary process for the production of CoQ-10. The process uses a selected kind of Non-Genetically Modified Microorganism that is cultivated in a continuous fermentor. The fermentation broth is extracted, then further purified by a column chromatographic process to yield pure CoQ-10 which is then used in our Q 10 supplement. The whole process is controlled under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) providing you with the best CoQ10 supplement on the market.
