Q10 Ubiquinol is also known as Pharma Nord's BioActive Q10. BioActive Q10 contains coenzyme Q10 in the form of ubiquinol (“active” Q10), which may benefit elderly people or individuals with impaired digestion who are less able to absorb supplemental Q10 in its ubiquinone form (normal Q10).
BioActive Q10 contains vitamin C that contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Why Pharma Nord BioActive Q10 Ubiquinol:
Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring, vitamin-like substance that plays a key role in the body’s energy supply process.
Every cell within the body requires a constant supply of energy to survive and function - without this constant energy supply the cells die.
Different tissues within the body may have particular energy requirements to function optimally- a good example is muscle tissue, which has an extremely high-energy requirement during physical exertion. Without an adequate energy supply in such circumstances, individuals may feel tired and lacking motivation to undertake physical exercise. This can even affect how we feel when carrying out daily tasks.
Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is required to convert sugars and fats from food into energy, in the form of a specific molecule called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This process takes place in specialized structures within cells called mitochondria.
Some coenzyme Q10 is manufactured within the body, with the remainder being obtained from the diet. As individuals age, the body is less able to maintain optimal levels of coenzyme Q10. In addition, coenzyme Q10 levels are depleted by lifestyle factors such as alcohol consumption and smoking, as well as by physical exertion or by illness.
Dietary supplementation can help to maintain optimal levels of coenzyme Q10 within the body.
Coenzyme Q10 occurs in two forms;
Ubiquinone (oxidised form).
Q10 Ubiquinone is also known as Pharma Nord’s Bio-Quinone Q10. Most people are able to absorb supplemental Q10 in this form adequately.
Ubiquinol (reduced form).
Q10 Ubiquinol is also known as BioActive Q10. Certain categories of people may be less able to absorb the ubiquinone form. These include the elderly, as well as people with liver disease, pancreatic disease, digestive disorders such as IBS, and following digestive tract surgery. For such categories of people, Q10 is more easily absorbed in the reduced (ubiquinol) form, as BioActive Q10.
Ubiquinol is extremely sensitive to the effects of air and light. BioActive Q10 contains ubiquinol in a stabilised form, using specially developed lightproof and air-proof packaging to prevent oxidation via a unique patented process. The manufacturing process ensures complete dissolution of the Q10 crystals in an oil blend that is encapsulated in light-proof gelatine caps and blister-packed.
Pharma Nord is able to guarantee the stability of this product during the whole of the product shelf life.
Inferior brands of Q10 sold in tablet form and in jars cannot guarantee the bio-availability of the active ingredients within.
Pharma Nord recommends 1-3 capsules per day of Q10 ubiquinol supplements, or as directed by a physician. Preferably taken in split doses and best taken with food to enhance absorption.
Coenzyme Q10 has been subject to over 1000 clinical studies, with no contraindications reported. There are over 70 studies featuring Bio-Quinone Q10, which is a reference product for the International Q10 Association.
Pregnant or lactating women and those on medication should consult a doctor before using any product.
Pharma Nord manufacture all of their products to pharmaceutical standards and adhere to Good Manufacturing Practice. This is a guarantee of safety and efficacy.
The safety of ubiquinol has been demonstrated in a clinical study reported by Hosoe et al (2007): Study on the safety and bio-availability of ubiquinol after single and 4-week multiple oral administration to healthy volunteers. Regul Toxicol Pharmacol; 47(1): 19-28.

There are up to 8 million statin users in the UK. Research has shown that around 10% of these people could be suffering from side-effects, which can include muscle aches, joint pain and fatigue. In other parts of the world statin manufacturers are obliged to state that statin drugs may impact our natural coQ10 production.
In a recent survey (2011-2012) of over 1200 Pharma Nord Q10 customers, 29% stated they topped up their Q10 levels because they took cholesterol lowering drugs.
Statins are a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs that work by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the liver’s synthesis of cholesterol.
Randomized clinical trials (RCT) show that statins are most effective when given to patients who already suffer from cardiovascular disease (CVD). They are, however, also widely used without CVD but who suffer from elevated cholesterol levels and/or other risk factors like diabetes and hypertension. There are many different types of statins, some with a more potent LDL-lowering effect than others.
Statins inhibit the enzyme HGM-CoA reductase and its ability to produce mevalonate, which is an intermediate product in the multi-step synthesis of cholesterol. In what is often referred to as the mevalonate pathway, mevalonate would under normal circumstances undergo a number of biochemical transformations, eventually causing it to branch into several different compounds, including cholesterol and ubiquinone. Statins effectively block this process.
Since coenzyme Q10 and cholesterol are both synthesized from the same substance, mevalonate, this implies that if the body's production of cholesterol is reduced by a statin, the body's production of coenzyme Q10 is reduced accordingly.
Coenzyme Q10 has multiple effects on the body's cholesterol level. Coenzyme Q10 will lower the body's cholesterol levels marginally. In addition, the antioxidant effect of Q10 will prevent circulating cholesterol from oxidizing and becoming very harmful.
Multivits has an excellent choice of vitamins and minerals. I swear by Pharma Nord's Ubiquinol version of Co Enzyme Q10. It is the most expensive of the Q10 range but there is a school of thought that as we age we need a product with the best absorbency. I prefer to believe this to be true hence I continue to purchase the product and was so relieved it was on a recent offer. My husband used to be on Statins which I used to give him Q10 to put back the enzyme that product took out. Finally after years of many battles with the medical profession, doctor's are finally seeing the true light re that medication.
This will be my second month of taking COQ10, and the amount of benefit has been unsurpassable. Taking C0Q10 has really given me an added boost to my health and well being.
I have started to take co q10 for a month and i am beginning to feel better not so anxious. I knew nothing about co q10 until my son went to the opticians and was told co q10 is good for eyesight.
Taken for 1 month. Felt improvements in energy on some days but may be because of being only 30mg!
I've been taking Q10 Ubiquinol for 6 months or more and I felt I had a spring in my step from the moment I started using this product; I feel I have more energy and the fact that it protects my heart is a definite bonus. Its amazing and I'd recommend it to anyone.
I suffered from muscle and back pain for many years. I was then prescribed statins, which caused muscle paralysis and muscle waste. Doctors advice was continue with the statins, thinking perhaps the doctor knew best I took one more tablet, I was horrendously ill and then had months of pain. My friend is a Treger practitioner recommended CO Q 10 Ubiquinol, I didn't fully believe the claims but I trusted my friend. Four and a half days later a lot of the pain lifted, and I slept through the nights.
Another friend had serious back pain and took CO Q 10 Ubiquinol, she is over the moon as four and a half days later most pain has gone. I was dubious as I saw many claims for wonder remedies,but I feel extremely lucky that I now have a future without the terrible pain I experienced for some three years or more. I am grateful to Treger and Pharma Nord. Pain curtails any enjoyment of life..........but now I have a lot of restored energy and hope......that's the best and least expected benefit ever. I recommend Both Treger and Pharma Nord CO Q 10 unreservedly.
This is certainly the most superior product to be found on the market. The delivery was prompt and well presented. I always order my vitamins from Pharma Nord because it is so dependable
Finding a noticable improvement in reduction of joint pain after being on Q10 for the last 3 months
Ubiquinol Q10 is just fantastic. I am over fifty and find that it has quickly restored my energy levels and reduced my blood pressure that was beginning to climb a little above normal. I ran out of them recently and was without any for three days and noticed my energy levels fall right back to where they were before - I would highly recommend them - especially with the selenium to ensure continued cardiovascular health. Expensive but really well worth it in the end.
i'm 66 yrs old and i've got to say q10 as certainly increased my energy levels enabling me to go the gym daily and enjoy walking
Over 50 & on statins the tiredness, aches & pains were inevitable but 2 100mg Q10 Ubiquinol per day and the energy levels are back where they should be. Pharma Nord's Bioactive Q10 is not the cheapest but in my view the best I have tried, Quality costs & my health is priceless to me.
I started taking 100mg Bio Active Q10 ubiquinol about 4 months ago i noticed after about 2 weeks my energy had improved so much. I then noticed that a vein in my leg which was causing me alot of discomfort and fluid retention was no longer painful and fluid retention was no longer a problem. I am def. going keep taking this product it is truly amazing.
I have read many good reports praising BioActive Q10 Ubiquinol and can confirm that I am feeling the benefits along with reduced blood pressure results that are now more acceptable for a 74 year old.
as an aging builder energy levels were declining so i tried 100mg Ubiquinol and have been pleased with the results,good for your heart too
I've taken Q10 for a while now and, when I forgot to reorder, I do notice.
I am 58 and do a lot of hill walking but last year suddenly found my energy just collasped. I tried several things but the only one that worked was bioActive Q10 Ubiquinol. After taking it for 3 weeks I found the energy and stamina returned to normal but it is taking a while to rebuild confidence. Will keep taking it from now on. The effect seems subtle but very powerful.
I am 54 and a few years ago a virus affected my heart muscle and I collapsed during a hospital exercise test at heart rate 130 bpm and was told by a consultant cardiologist not to exercise. I am now recovered and have been taking 100mg Q10 Ubiquinol daily for 18 months which gives me the energy to walk long distances, run competively, and play tennis. I also now row competively and the Concept 2 ergos (rowing machines), which don't lie, tell me that my energy and fitness levels compare with club members 20 years younger! I know that the extra energy comes from the daily 100mg Ubiquinol Q10, and it also lowers my blood pressure. I can't rate this product highly enough. With many supplements you can't feel the difference - with Ubiquinol Q10 you really can. I ran 4.5 miles this morning at 70% of my max heart rate and am just off to the rowing club for UT1 ergo training! I would not be without Ubiquinol Q10.
I was recommended ubiquinol BioActive Q10 by a health professional for my heart. I can't tell if its doing anything great for my heart but I was shocked when my gums stopped bleeding (they have bled all my adult life). When I went to see my dentist they were amazed how good my gums were looking too. On top of all that I have more energy and am not as fatigued as I used to be. So all in all I say go for it and give them a try - you owe it to yourself to at least try them and see.
I have been taking Q10 and subsequently Ubiquinol for approximately 18 months. I found that it actually appears to have stablised my blood pressure which was high even though I was taking medication.
I also feel I have more energy when taking Ubiquinol as if I stop taking the tablets for a week or more I feel tired more quickly.
My parents about 86 years old ,they take 2 capsules of 100 mg BioActive Q10 everyday for their hearts and energy. They look well, happy and have a good mood. I considered that they should take the capsules continually.
I am absolutely thrilled with Ubiquinol. I have had chronic fatigue for several years now and it has given me back my energy to live my life, and a side effect is that my migraines have much reduced in frequency and intensity
I take 2 30mg Ubiquinol per day as I understand that q10 production diminishes as we get older. I lead an active life and hope to continue for as long as possible. I cannot say that I feel any different but I treat it as insurance for my heart.
I started taking 100mg of BioActive Q10 Ubiquinol some months ago and right from the first capsule it worked for me. The best way I can describe It is, it was like a switch been turned on with the lovely feeling I got of calm and serinity. So I would not be without my Ubiquinol every day.
