NADH+Ubiquinol

The combination of NADH and ubiquinol provides antioxidant protection and sparks energy production at the cellular level.

Low energy? The real causes of fatigue usually lay deep within the cells-- in the energy-generation department. NADH and Ubiquinol are a synergistic combination of activated co-enzymes vital to energy production in the brain and body.

About NADH + Ubiquinol

Ubiquinol is the biologically active form of coenzyme Q10. Ubiquinol is essential for the health of practically all tissues and organs because of its role in the production of energy in each cell. It also protects fats from oxidative damage. The organs that work biochemically the hardest for us-- the heart, the kidneys, and the liver--- contain the highest concentrations of ubiquinol.

Deficiency in CoEnzyme Q10 has been noted in many chronic disease conditions, especially cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Individuals using a statin drug for cholesterol reduction typically develop a drug-induced CoQ10 deficiency. Their production of CoQ10 is reduced and blocked by these medications, so they’re good candidates for supplementation.

NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is the main nutrient vital to creating cellular energy. It’s the activated co-enzyme form of NAD+, made in our bodies from vitamin B3 (niacin).

NADH functions like a spark plug for cellular energy production. Without NADH, the basic energy source for all cells could not be created. This energy—ATP—is created by the mitochondria: the tiny but mighty power-plants found in each cell.

Since the highest concentrations of NADH are ordinarily found in the brain, this suggests that NADH is most important to the brain’s energy supply. Think about this: each neuron—or brain cell—contains over 2 million mitochondria. NADH is the precursor to ATP, making it of great importance to our cognitive function. It’s no wonder lower levels of NADH are associated with decreased energy, mental fatigue, and brain fog. These symptoms are common experiences of those with established Parkinson’s disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Long-COVID Syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease.

Even if you aren’t dealing with a diagnosed health condition, supplementing NADH becomes a good idea the older we get. That’s because as we age, our mitochondria can become less efficient and aren’t replaced at the same rate as when we were younger. This means lower NADH levels, lower ATP production, and lower ENERGY levels.

So when stress, advanced age and/or medical diagnoses are present, it makes sense to offer safe and effective supplementary NADH where backed by clinical application.
