FERTIL PRO® UBIQis the reduced form of CoQ 10, Ubiquinol. CoQ10 is a vitamin-like substance that serves as an energy source. CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that is produced naturally by the body, but it is also available as a nutritional supplement. It is present in the membrane of almost every cell in the body and is required for mitochondrial ATP synthesis, which is responsible for creating cellular energy. There is a gradual, age-related decline in the tissue levels of CoQ10.
The most biologically active form of coenzyme Q10, known as Ubiquinol, has been shown through several studies to improve both egg and sperm health, while playing a key role in protecting DNA at a cellular level. There are two forms of CoQ10, ubiquinone and Ubiquinol. CoQ10 starts off as ubiquinone and then is converted within the cell to the more powerful Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants.
FERTIL PRO® UBIQ is UBIQUINOL.
