CoQ10 is a potent antioxidant and plays a critical role in metabolism and energy production and an important nutrient to support heart and cardiovascular health. ‡
More and more people need CoQ10 supplements now than ever before. One reason is the recognition that many statins (cholesterol-lowering drugs) deplete CoQ10 – and a lot of us are on statins! In addition, many other drugs that are common also deplete CoQ10 such as: antidepressants, antidiabetic medications, beta-blockers, diuretics, etc.
CoQ10 is an essential element for many daily functions and is required by every single cell in the body to provide cellular energy –
– especially in the heart. CoQ10 is also a potent antioxidant which provides anti-aging benefits. ‡
CoQ10 deficiency is believed to be associated with conditions like declining cognition, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, heart disease and muscle conditions. ‡
CoQ10 Ubiquinol from Progressive Consumer contains 100 mg per softgel of the active form of CoQ10 – ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is the reduced, active antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and most easily absorbed and utilized in the body.‡
CoQ10 Ubiquinol is non-GMO, suitable for vegetarians, gluten free, Kosher and Halal, and is ideal for those with an impaired ability to convert ubiquinone into ubiquinol, since it is reduced and ready for use in the body’s cellular energy production process.‡

KanekaQH™ is ubiquinol, the reduced, active antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10. Introduced in 2006, KanekaQH™ is the first supplemental form of bioidentical ubiquinol ever developed and is manufactured exclusively by Kaneka Corporation.‡
Kaneka ubiquinol and Kaneka ubiquinone are produced via the same production method: a fermentation process using a food grade yeast. Ubiquinol is quite unstable and easily oxidized to the ubiquinone, even by simple exposure to the air. Kaneka is now able to obtain and keep ubiquinol stable for a long period of time.
The Kaneka ubiquinol is transported under appropriate conditions under nitrogen gas to avoid oxidation. Also, at the encapsulation process, appropriate conditions can avoid oxidation and will guarantee high content of reduced CoQ10 in the capsules.‡
Because ubiquinol is one of the strongest lipid-soluble antioxidants available, KanekaQH™ provides defense against oxidative damage to the body’s cells, including lipids, proteins and DNA. It also plays an essential role in cellular ATP (energy) production.‡
