I have read (but not in any scientific journal) that Ubiquinol is superior to CoQ 10 because it is better absorbed. Dr T, do you have any information on Ubiquinol? Would it appear to make a good topical ingredient?
Thanks!
Mike

Ubiquinone and ubiquinol are two forms of the same coenzyme and convert into each other in the body at a certain limited rate. There were no studies to compare their topical effect. So far, positive studies have been with ubiquinone. The other form may turn out less effective even if absorbed better.
