Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol Review
Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol is a nutritional supplement designed to support a healthy lifestyle, energize the body and the mind and reduce the typical signs of aging. The formula is offered under the brand of Dr. Mercola, developed by Dr. Joseph Mercola, a licensed osteopathic physician trained in both traditional and natural medicine. He is the one who funds a website especially designed to inform people about products available on the market which bring the most benefits to their users and about some wrongfully advertised formulas.
The formula is based on a substance called Ubiquinol, which is converted from the enzyme CoQ10. It is the active form of the CoQ10 nutrient and is believed to have beneficial effects on the energy levels, heart, circulation and blood pressure, immune and nervous system. Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol also acts as an antioxidant helping the body to fight against oxidation stress and to recharge other antioxidant nutrients.
Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol Ingredients
Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol contains the following ingredients: Ubiquinol (Kaneka-QH, reduced form of CoQ10), fish gelatin capsule (from tilapia), citrus extract, and medium chain triglycerides.
Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol is advertised as a multi-benefit formula based on a single active ingredient which is the active form of coenzyme CoQ10, Ubiquinol.
Ubiquinol is the fully reduced form of Coenzyme Q10 and can be found in nearly every human cell, tissue and organ (and generally in all mammals). Its main function is to transport electrons resulting in ATP synthesis which takes place in the mitochondria of cells. Mitochondria are known as the source of the largest quantity of energy needed for cellular development and growth and healthy metabolism. This is why Ubiquinol is now considered one of the most important antioxidants for the cellular system.
A large variety of studies involving this nutrient have been conducted. The neuronal benefits shown through clinical trials include reducing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, memory loss, mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease, depression and dementia. Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol is recommended as a dietary supplement in a dose of one capsule daily or as suggested by a healthcare professional. It is highly recommended for individuals under statin drugs (used to reduce cholesterol levels).
The formula is not recommended for people under 25 years old as CoQ10 should be absorbed naturally by the body. Mild side effects of CoQ10 intakes commonly reported are nausea, headache, gastrointestinal upset or loss of appetite, but it is considered a safe supplement. The recommended daily capsule of Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol is one capsule.
- Researched ingredient
- Relatively low price for a month supply (less than $20)
- Discount offered when choosing the auto ship option with certain retailers
- Reduced number and severity of side-effects
- Lack of reviews from consumers
- Insufficient evidence of the effectiveness for some ailments claims
Dr. Mercola Ubiquinol is a nutritional supplement advertised as the necessary antioxidant protection for a healthy functioning of several systems and for reducing the negative effects of aging. The formula is not different from those of competitors’ and is not an FDA approved supplement. The formula’s effectiveness hasn’t been supported by any online testimonial or scientific research. Also, conclusive reviews from consumers are missing. The research made on the active ingredient is the only thing supporting the advertised benefits of Dr. Mercola’ s formula. This is why, in case of insufficiently researched or unapproved supplements, we always recommended you to consult a healthcare professional before starting using them.
