SOLAL UBIQUINOL NOW IN STOCK
Has Your Co-enzyme Q10 Become Obsolete?
are 2 forms of Co enzyme Q10: Ubiquinol and Ubiquinone. All co-enzyme Q10
products on the South African market, except for Solal’s Ubiquinol, contain
the less absorbable, less effective and less protective ubiquinone form.
co-enzyme Q10 is more effective than the ordinary ubiquinone form of
co-enzyme Q10 because:
ü it is already in the
body’s ‘ready-to-use’ form. The ubiquinone form must first to be converted into the
active ubiquinol form before the body can use it. This conversion
process is slow, and slows down even more with aging. This makes it especially
important to use the ubiquinol form as one gets older.
ü it is absorbed up to
8X better7-11. Poor absorption of
ubiquinone co-enzyme Q10 has historically been one of main barriers to
obtaining the high blood levels required to slow aging and protect the
ü it is 40% better at
slowing down the aging process than ordinary ubiquinone co-enzyme Q1034.
ü it maintains CoQ10
blood levels 66% better12. These sustained levels are essential
for heart protection.
ü it ensures the
correct ratio of ubiquinol:ubiquinone in the blood (above 90%)1.
ü it enters cells
more easily and it therefore more able to keep cells alive by supplying
energy to the mitochondria within the cell48.
ü it reduces
fatigue 90% more effectively.38

is Ubiquinol so important?
ensures the cells have the energy that they need to stay alive
and function properly. When the levels of ubiquinol in your bloodstream are
low, your cells and organs (especially the ones that need a lot of energy
such as your heart and brain) struggle to keep up with energy
demands. This causes cell starvation and oxidative damage. Cellular
energy production can be maintained at youthful levels, by supplementing
with SOLAL’s Ubiquinol. This helps prevent many of the harmful effects
of aging, and offers particular protection to the heart and brain.
is the reduced form of ubiquinone which means that, unlike ordinary ubiquinone co-q 10, it more
effectively donates electrons to neutralise free radicals that
damage the cells’ energy producing mitochondria4.
helps prevent many age related disorders1,37
such as heart disease, brain/neurological disorders, cancers, kidney
disease, liver disease, pancreas disorders, adrenal imbalances and
causes low levels of CoQ10?
Q10 synthesis decreases as one ages and has been positively correlated with
increased risk of various degenerative diseases13-33.
are 3 main causes of drastic drops in blood-ubiquinol levels:
Age43-45, Diseased states
(e.g. diabetes, heart disease) and Cholesterol medicines (known as
“statins”)39-42. The irony is that at the time that you need to protect your
heart the most (when you are getting older, have a disease such as
diabetes, or are taking cholesterol lowering medicine), you have the least
available heart-protecting ubiquinol in the blood.
taking statin cholesterol medications, without supplementing with
ubiquinol, can cause severe heart damage49-51.
If you areaging, suffer from any disease, or are taking
statincholesterol medicines, it is imperative that yousupplement with
