Udo's Cardio Support
Flora Udo's Choice Udo's Cardio Support Ubiquinol 50mg. Most people know co enzyme Q10 as a powerful cardiovascular antioxidant. What many don't realise, is that in the body, CoQ10 must be converted into its active form called coenzyme QH, also known as Ubiquinol, which requires energy. Most people have trouble converting CoQ10 due to lifestyle factors that cause liver congestion and free radical damage, or hereditary factors that predispose then to certain cardiovascular disease. 50mg. 60 Softgel capsules
Was called Udo's QH Plus
What can Udo's Cardio Support help with?
- Along with Q10, QH maintains and supports cardiovascular health
- Along with Q10, QH fuels cellular energy (ATP) production
- Unlike Q10, QH functions as a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant, acting as a protector from free-radical damage and aging, especially in the brain, heart and muscle cells
Adults: Take 1 capsule 2 times daily, ideal in the morning, rather than the evening, as COQ10 is involved with energy production in the cells of the body.
We ask Udo Erasmus, Is there an easy way to understand the difference between CoQ10 and the Ubiquinol in Udo's QH Plus and how it may help?
What is Udo's Choice Cardio Support?
QH is a highly active form of Coenzyme Q10. Specifically, QH is the high energy, antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10. QH has great advantages over Q10 for athletes, for people over 40, for people with cardiovascular, neuro-degenerative, and diabetic diseases, and for anyone of any age who is under oxidative stress. Who is under oxidative stress? These days, it’s just about everybody.
Can you put Q10 and QH into context?
First: Coenzyme Q10 and QH are a tag team cycle in energy production within the energy factories (furnaces, mitochondria) of our cells. That’s where 90-95% of the energy (ATP) for every cell in our body—and especially important in the heart, muscle, brain, immune, and intestinal cells—is made.
Both coenzyme Q10 and QH are part of the electron transport chain—the molecular mechanism responsible for energy (ATP) production. Q10 is the oxidized (spent) form. QH is the reduced (high energy) form.
Second: QH is one of the most powerful oil-soluble antioxidants in the human body. It can prevent damage done to the energy factories in our cells. While both Q10 and QH are important in energy production, only QH can act as an antioxidant.
He goes on to say
In terms of antioxidant activity:
QH is like a fresh plant. Q10 is like a cooked plant.
QH is like a sun-charged whole food. Q10 is like a stored, tired, wilted food that has lost its charge.
QH is like a fresh, crunchy, juicy carrot. Q10 is like an old, limp, dehydrated carrot.
QH is like a high-energy oil blend. Q10 is like low-energy, used oil.
QH is like youth. Q10 is like age.
QH is alert and active. Q10 is tired and spent.
QH is the more organized form. Q10 is the less organized (disorganized) form.
QH gives energy to the body. Q10 takes energy from the body to be converted back into QH.
QH is basic (or alkaline) in comparison to Q10, which is relatively more acidic. Our body constantly takes in alkaline and gets rid of acidic molecules.
QH is more like plant energy, and Q10 is more like animal energy. Plants buy (store) sunlight energy. They do this through photosynthesis, which involves capturing hydrogen and releasing oxygen. Oxygen is alkaline. Oxygen, which is our breath, is essential for us. Animals and human beings spend (release) sunlight energy. They do this through respiration, which involves the burning (oxidation) of molecules into water and carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is acidic. Carbon dioxide uses up oxygen. Carbon dioxide also produces climate change and global warming.
What makes Udo's Cardio Support unique?
There are hundreds of antioxidants. All have their own unique roles. Some, like vitamin C, are water-soluble. Others, like vitamin D, are fat-soluble. QH is a fat-soluble antioxidant that prevents free-radical damage in the brain, muscle, heart, and all cells.
QH helps prevents damage to cell membranes. QH helps prevents damage to the energy productions system (mitochondria) in our cells. QH is able to do work that other antioxidants (like bioflavonoids and vitamin E) cannot do. Without enough QH in the body, oxidative effects can speed aging and can lead to degenerative diseases.
