Why do so many people take Accel instead of CoQ10 from the supermarket?

A human body generates and regenerates cells every now and then.  For it to be possible, a substance called the Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is present in every cell in the body. The body naturally produces CoQ10, which the cells use for the production of energy that the body needs for the growth and the maintenance of cells. CoQ10 is more commonly called ubiquinone.

Ubiquinone, in order to function for its production of cellular energy, must be converted by the body into ubiquinol, the active form of ubiquinone. Ubiquinol is the most active form of CoQ10. For a simpler explanation, ubiquinol is the converted form of ubiquinone that is needed by the body for continuous production of energy. But, as one ages, the body’s production of ubiquinone diminishes. Moreover, the capability of the body in converting it to ubiquinone also deflates. In this case, drug manufacturers have released a body supplement that will address this dilemma.

There are certain supplements available in the market that only contain CoQ10 or ubiquinone. This means that once consumed, the body should convert it to ubiquinol to serve its purpose. On the other hand, there are supplements that already provide ubiquinol in them. Therefore, no conversion is needed, as the body already absorbed the substance in its active form.

New and Improved Accel from Dr. Al Sears

Ubiquinol and ubiquinone are commonly confused as similar and are interchangeably used with CoQ10, but these two are different.

  • Ubiquinone, as mentioned earlier, is a form of CoQ10 that is not yet converted or the oxidized form, while ubiquinol is the reduced form of the enzyme.
  • Ubiquinol has a higher bioavailability than ubiquinone, meaning that the body can absorb it better or is more readily available for its physiological purposes.
  • Ubiquinol is a more powerful anti-oxidant due to its reduced form, being more effective than ubiquinone in inhibition of free radicals in the body.
  • People over 25 may find it harder to convert ubiquinone into ubiquinol so supplements that already contain the reduced form is generally more recommended for its superior health benefit to the body.
  • Absorption of Ubiquinol-containing supplements has a wider range of health benefits, including reducing signs of aging and reducing oxidative stress. Ubiquinol shows an efficiency in performing these functions.

Though ubiquinol and ubiquinone have differences, mainly the rate at which it can give benefits to the body’s health, both are still forms of CoQ10, which in itself is beneficial. Intake of supplements containing CoQ10 has shown various positive effects, such as:

  • It promotes improved eyesight
  • It serves as an energy booster
  • It helps in faster recovery from exercise
  • It helps in easier breathing
  • It improves gum health
  • It boosts the body’s immune system
  • It is beneficial to people who have heart disease or cancer
  • It helps in maintaining blood pressure levels within the normal range
  • It helps in preventing premature aging

There are other numerous benefits that CoQ10 can give to the body in whatever form it may be. The difference lies in the extent and how fast these benefits are experienced.
