Ubiquinol is a soy-free, non-GMO dietary supplement consisting of Ubiquinol, the active antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10. The formula is manufactured by Healthy Origins, a company originated from Pittsburg, United States.

Founded in 1996, the company provides top quality dietary supplements under the strict regulations set forth by the FDA and enforced through cGMP guidelines. The company’s product range includes condition specific formulations designed to assist with a wide variety of problems starting from brain health and the nervous system to joints and liver protection.

Adults over the age of 40, people suffering from specific oxidative stress-related conditions and those who may have troubles converting CoQ10 into Ubiquinol may most benefit from the formula. However, Ubiquinol can successfully be used by any individual who wishes to support overall health and wellness.


1) Quick Overview

Ubiquinol is a dietary supplement which features the health benefits of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10).

CoQ10 is an oil soluble vitamin like substance extensively researched over the past decades. Its increased popularity made its adoption as a key element in a large variety of products, from dietary supplements to skin care formulas. CoQ10 seems to be part of the electron transport chain, which makes it unique as no other molecule in the body is able to perform this role.

CoQ10 has powerful antioxidant properties. Unlike most antioxidants, the Coenzyme is able to inhibit both the initiation and the propagation of protein and lipid oxidation processes, making it highly effective. It also helps regenerate Vitamin E, another potent antioxidant. The coenzyme has been touted beneficial against oxidative stress related conditions, including mild cognitive impairment, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and Huntington’s disease.


2) Details on Ubiquinol Ingredients and Uses

Ubiquinol includes the following ingredients: Ubiquinol (Kaneka QH), Medium Chain Triglycerides, gelatin, glycerin, ascorbyl, palmitate, beeswax, sunflower Lecithin, purified water, and Annatto extract.

3) Does Ubiquinol Work?

Ubiquinol contains Ubiquinol derived from the Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is a vitamin-like molecule with an essential role in electron transport process throughout the body.

This is a unique feature of Coenzyme Q10. Besides its energy production role, CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant. The exact way Ubiquinol is produced from CoQ10 is not entirely understood. Ubiquinol uses the Ubiquinol form developed by Kaneka, one of the leaders in manufacturing Coenzyme Q10 supplements. As a free radical scavenger, Ubiquinol has been linked to benefits against conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, dementia or mild cognitive impairment. Also, it encourages an active and healthy mind. Coenzyme Q10 production decreases with age. Hence supplementation becomes necessary. It is most present in the organs which require increased amounts of energy, particularly the heart, liver, pancreas and the kidneys.

The manufacturer recommends taking one capsule daily.

There are testimonials posted online about Ubiquinol:

  • The formula helps me with my depression and hunger sensation

  • I am pleased with the formula

  • I have more energy and feel better overall


4) Ubiquinol Claims

  • Non-GMO formulation
  • The core benefits are backed up by scientific research
  • The formula is free of sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, barley, soy, fish and other allergens, as well as preservatives, artificial
    Flavors and colors

5) Ubiquinol Warnings and Precautions

  • Limited number of consumer reviews
  • The product is expensive – purchase price of roughly $40 a month

6) How Much Does Ubiquinol Cost?

The formula is available in 30, 60 and 150 capsules bottles. A bottle of 30 capsules, accounting for a month’s supply costs roughly $40, a price which decreases if you purchase the larger quantities. For instance, the 150 capsules bottles cost $160, amounting to roughly $32 for a month’s supply. The price is rather elevated but similar to other Ubiquinol based formulas of this quality.

How To Take

7) How to Take Ubiquinol

The recommended daily dosage is one capsule. No side effects are mentioned for Ubiquinol; however sometimes gastro-intestinal problems have been reported (especially in case of excess doses). There are several consumer testimonials available, most of which report the product is high quality and effective.


8) Our Verdict on Ubiquinol

Ubiquinol and Coenzyme Q10 has received a lot of attention from researchers all over the world. Ubiquinol is non-GMO, and free of most common allergens, artificial colors, and preservatives. It seems that the product is a high quality formulation, and the limited number of consumer reviews available confirms that. Ubiquinol supplementation has rarely been associated to side effects, making this formula a good alternative. We are hence inclined to believe this product works to help consumers and merely advise that you carefully read the label before using it.

I have been taking Healthy Origins 400mg capsules four times a day at my doctors insistence. I have a rare neurological disorder and the genomics team at my university tested me for over 4 years and finally discovered that this would solve most of my problems. AND IT DOES !!! Other brands make me nauseated or I have to take so many to get to 1200mg a day. A nice surprise was how much energy I now have and that my brain has returned to being able to think clearly again.

Title for your comment
A GREAT formula
Have you tried this product?

It took forever for these to be delivered and once I received them I noticed that they were stuck together. Probably poorly stored or something. Otherwise, I think they work, although the effect is subtle.

Both my husband and I take these capsules for over 6 months and we feel great. We’re more energized and alert than before. We’re in our 50’s and take these on doctor’s orders.
