What is Coenzyme Q10 Derived From?
Vitamins and Supplements FAQs • June 25, 2013

Question: What is Coenzyme Q10 derived from? I have read the label ingredients but want to know about the coenzyme itself. If it's from animal, what kind. I'm considering taking this product but always want to know what I'm taking.

Thanks, Dean

Well this is an easy one! Our CoQ10 (coenzyme Q10) is an all-natural trans isomer derived from yeast fermentation.

Follow-up Question: You don't say if this is Ubiquinol or Ubiquinone? As we know, the former is clearly the best, as it does not require converting to ubiquinol, as the latter does. so which one is this?

The CoQ10 in this product is in the form of ubiquinone. While ubiquinol (the reduced form of CoQ10) can be a more desirable form for some people, especially for people that are above the age of 40, we do have our customers covered with whatever form they would prefer! If you would like ubiquinol may we suggest that you take a peek at the following wonderful products…the item numbers are SWU393, SWU377 and SWU460! Once again, thank you so much for your interest in our products!
