The Good Guru’s Ubiquinoll is Kaneka Q10 which is bio-identical to the coenzyme Q10 that naturally occurs in the body. To date it is the only manufacturer of Ubiquinol CoQ10 that carefully protects against oxidation. Kaneka Q10® is GMO free, allergen-free and Kosher certified. 100mg-300mg per day is the recommended dosage of Ubiquinol. And there are no reported side effects of CoQ10 supplementation.

Ubiquinol CoQ10is back on trend and mentioned in health bibles as the next big thing! I want to call attention to ubiquinol’s powerful anti-oxidant benefits and how this supplement can optimise the function of the cells in the body and improving overall health and potential longevity. The brain, heart and liver are the most active tissues in the body and require massive amounts of cellular energy to function at its best.

CoQ10 is found in the cell membranes in our body and levels gradually deplete from the age of 20 years. Certain medications such as lipid lowering statins and blood pressure pills can also lower levels. The ubiquinol form is the most absorbable form of CoQ10. Therefore a must have supplement for anyone over the age of 35 years. The benefits of taking a daily Ubiquinol supplement:

Increases energy levels by combating fatigue. Highly recommended for those with chronic fatigue. Ubiquinol supports this energy process in mitochondrial cells which is where most our energy is created.

 Supports fertility by improving both egg and sperm health which in turn improves embryo quality. Moreover, conditions such as endometriosis, PCOS, menstrual cycle irregularities, preterm labor, recurrent miscarriage can lead to infertility due to increased oxidative stress and supplementing ubiquinol reduces oxidative stress.

 Improving skin integrity and delaying the anti-ageing process by slowing down DNA and cell damage via its anti-oxidant and protective roles.

 Protects brain cells from oxidative damage and improving symptoms of brain fog, slow mental processing, and cognitive decline.

✓ Energises the heart muscle and keeps it pumping strong. Research shows an improvement in heart function for those with congestive heart failure, CHD, CVD and blood pressure.

Studies have shown ubiquinol to improve and reduce frequency of migraines and headaches.

Improves gum health. There is evidence to point that individuals with low CoQ10 levels are more prone to experiencing gum disease. Bacteria in the mouth can travel into the bloodstream and lead to inflammation in the blood vessels also linking CVD with gum disease.
