How Ubiquinol Can Improve Your Chances of Conception

How Ubiquinol Can Improve Your Chances of Conception

Happy, Healthy Mother and BabyAre you among the thousands of people told you have poor egg or poor sperm health? Perhaps you are over the age of 35 and trying to conceive. If this is you, you just came across crucial information that may greatly increase your chances of healthy conception and a healthy baby.

The most biologically-active form of coenzyme Q10, known as Ubiquinol, has been shown through several studies to improve both egg and sperm health, while playing a key role in protecting DNA at a cellular level.

CoQ10 is considered by many to be the miracle nutrient because almost every living cell relies on it for energy production. An important fact that you may not know is that the body requires certain levels of CoQ10 to function properly. If these blood levels drop, the body becomes more susceptible to disease and premature aging. This is why CoQ10 is so vital to the health of both the male and female reproductive system- most importantly egg and sperm health. But to truly understand why CoQ10 is so important to health, you must first learn what it is and why its most biologically active form, Ubiquinol, is a key player in improving egg and sperm health.

What is CoQ10 & How Does it Work?

CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that is produced naturally by the body, but it is also available as a nutritional supplement. It is present in the membrane of almost every cell in the body and is required for mitochondrial ATP synthesis, which is responsible for creating cellular energy.

There are two forms of CoQ10, ubiquinone and Ubiquinol. CoQ10 starts off as ubiquinone and then is converted within the cell to the more powerful Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants.

CoQ10 is a considered a “vitamin-like” nutrient because it is synthesized in the membrane of human cells, but it is also obtained in small amounts through dietary intake. It is most abundantly found in organ meats, but can also be found in dark leafy green vegetables like spinach, kale and broccoli, nuts, seafood, and meat, though the amounts of leafy greens a person would need to consume to obtain therapeutic amounts of CoQ10 would be high. That is why nutritional supplementation of CoQ10 and/or Ubiquinol is suggested. Most all CoQ10 supplements available are in the form of ubiquinone. Ubiquinol is different in that it is the most biologically active form of coenzyme Q10 and does not need to be converted by the body. Ubiquinol is eight times more potent than ubiquinone.

Studies have shown that the presence of the most biologically active form of coenzyme Q10 Ubiquinol in the cell membrane may help reduce cell and DNA damage caused by free radicals, which has been shown to reduce blood pressure and improve egg health, sperm health and, in turn, embryo quality.

Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cell structures. In normal everyday life free radicals are produced from the activity in our bodies (for example, free radicals are made during ATP synthesis for energy production) but chemicals in our surrounding environment can also create free radicals. It is said that each cell in our body is attacked about 10,000 times a day by free radicals, accelerating the aging process.

As we age, the ability of the body to produce and metabolize ubiquinone to Ubiquinol declines. In turn so do energy levels and cellular health. This may be due to increased metabolic demand as the body ages, poor nutritional intake, gene mutation, and oxidative stress. Some reports have stated that this decline becomes most apparent around the age of 40, but may begin as early as 20 years of age. So, what can be done now to increase levels of CoQ10? Supplement with Ubiquinol.

Why Ubiquinol is Superior to CoQ10 Alone

Remember how I mentioned that most all CoQ10 supplements are made of the inactive form known as ubiquinone? Well, by supplementing with the most biologically active form of coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinol), you are able to bypasses the body having to use energy to convert the ubiquinone to Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol provides a strong first-stage antioxidant effect against cellular oxidative damage.

Ubiquinol needs to be replenished regularly to maintain cellular health and proper function of the entire body. Ubiquinol is readily and easily absorbed in the intestinal tract, making it more “bioavailable” than ubiquinone. Studies have shown that Ubiquinol is eight times more potent than ubiquinone.

For people under the age of 30, the body may be able to easily convert CoQ10 supplements from ubiquinone to Ubiquinol. But for those who are older, suffering from chronic disease or exposed to excessive oxidative stress, Ubiquinol may be a superior choice of supplementation because it can readily replenish Ubiquinol stores.

Ubiquinol to Improve Reproductive Health and Boost Fertility

Several diseases associated with infertility and reproductive dysfunction are linked to oxidative stress including endometriosis, unexplained infertility, PCOS, POF, menstrual cycle irregularities, preterm labor, recurrent miscarriage, egg health, sperm health, and motility. Several studies show that antioxidant supplementation can reduce oxidative stress, which positively affects the outcome of each of these issues.

Start With Egg and Sperm Health!

In order to have a healthy pregnancy and baby, both the ova and sperm must be healthy! The cells of a developing embryo just after conception cannot divide properly if either ova or sperm health is poor, resulting in miscarriage. If the ova and sperm are very poor in health, conception may not be able to occur, even through IVF.

Researchers think that CoQ10 supplementation may help cells function more normally and divide more normally by restoring normal energy to the mitochondria in each cell. This is very important when considering conception and how the first stages of life are dependent on proper cell division.

Ova (Egg) Health
For women over the age of 35, ovum (egg) health begins to dramatically decline. Once a woman is over 40 years old, ovum health continues to decline and at a quickening pace. Each ovum is but a single cell, the health of each ovum matters greatly. Within each ovum is the blueprint of a future child; DNA is the genetic code inherent to the healthy life of a human being yet to be. Ubiquinol has been shown to inhibit DNA oxidation (damage from free radicals), thus protecting the genetic code.

A study published in Fertility and Sterility showed that supplementation of 600 mg of CoQ10 daily by older women improved both egg quality and fertilization rates. Other studies published in Fertility and Sterility also showed the same improvements in the ova of older mice.

A preliminary study of mice by Dr. Robert Casper and colleagues at Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, showed that CoQ10 supplementation on mid-aged female mice resulted in more pregnancies and more babies per litter. “They found that when CoQ10 was given to 52-week-old mice – about mid-age for a mouse – their eggs appeared to rejuvenate. There were significantly more egg follicles in the old mice treated with the CoQ10…”

Sperm Count & Health
Just as each ovum contains DNA, so does each sperm, the other vital half to the creation of a child. CoQ10 deficiency may lead to not only damaged DNA within the sperm, but low levels affect the ability of sperm to swim, known as motility. Ubiquinol supplementation has a twofold support system for sperm health, one it is protective and second it supports motility by increasing cellular energy.

CoQ10 is found in the highest concentrations inside the mitochondria of all cells. For sperm, this is located in the midsection, the area where energy production occurs that powers the tail whip. The higher the blood levels of CoQ10, the greater the sperm’s ability to be strong swimmers. A study in 2009 showed that low levels of CoQ10 in the seminal fluid impacts sperm motility, but supplementation with CoQ10 greatly improved and restored sperm motility in men with very low levels of sperm motility.

One study showed that healthy sperm, with normal morphology (shape), incubated with 50 mg of CoQ10 had a significant increase in sperm motility. That same study also showed that 17 patients with low fertilization rates who supplemented with 60 mg of CoQ10 daily for 103 days had a significant improvement in fertilization rates.

Defective sperm function in infertile men has been shown to be directly associated with increased free radical stress. This is where Ubiquinol supplementation may greatly help to protect sperm health, as well as the health of all the cells that make up the reproductive organs, and the entire body.

Note from Kimberly Langdon M.D., OB/GYN:

While mice studies are not always indicative of human response, CoQ10 as an antioxidant alone would be protective of eggs in general as described in the 2018 study out if China in the journal Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology below.

“CoQ10 pretreatment resulted in significantly lower gonadotrophin requirements and higher peak E2 levels. Women in CoQ10 group had increased number of retrieved oocytes (4, IQR 2–5), higher fertilization rate (67.49%) and more high-quality embryos (1, IQR 0–2); p < 0.05. Significantly less women treated with CoQ10 had cancelled embryo transfer because of poor embryo development than controls (8.33% vs. 22.89%, p = 0.04) and more women from treatment group had available cryopreserved embryos (18.42% vs. 4.3%, p = 0.012). The clinical pregnancy and live birth rates per embryo transfer and per one complete stimulation cycle tended to be higher in CoQ10 group but did not achieve statistical significance.”

In addition Langdon shares, “Since fertilization depends on good eggs being retrieved, by default one would argue that the eggs were better in the treated group compared to placebo because more were fertilized and produced better embryos. Furthermore, more cyropreserved embryos are dependent on good eggs.”

I spite of inconclusive studies with human or animal subjects, Ubiquinol is a safe supplement with so many proven benefits as an anti-oxidant that when faced with egg health or advanced maternal age, supplementing is worth considering. In any case, all people should be on it for all of its benefits to other body systems including the heart, etc.

Supplementing with Ubiquinol

Ubiquinol is easily altered by both light and air. Once it is exposed to light and air, it converts back to the oxidized form of CoQ10, ubiquinone. Because of this, development of a bulk Ubiquinol supplement for consumers proved to be difficult. Today, through advanced technology, scientists have developed a process that has perfected stabilization of Ubiquinol, keeping intact its active electron-rich benefits through a specialized softgel that protects it from oxidation.

The general suggested daily dose of Ubiquinol for the average person is 100 mg per day. For those who are older or suspect decreased levels of CoQ10 due to health issues, supplementation may be started at 200-300 mg per day for two weeks. After two weeks, blood plasma levels plateau and dosage may be lowered to 100 mg per day, as maintenance.

The Importance of Diet
Supplementation of Ubiquinol alone cannot serve its purpose if healthy diet and lifestyle are not in place. The role of diet in cellular health and fertility is truly the foundation for proper reproductive function. We find that without eating a whole food Fertility Diet, Ubiquinol cannot be as effective. Learn all about the Fertility Diet here…

Supplementing with Other Antioxidants
For those who want to improve reproductive function, learning how supplementing with “sister” (other types) antioxidants is also important. Ubiquinol is not the only antioxidant that is important to fertility, so are Lipoic acid, vitamin E, vitamin C, and Glutathione. Antioxidants rely on one another to revive each other, so each one can continue on protecting cellular health and function. While Ubiquinol is considered the most powerful of all antioxidants, these other antioxidants play their own important key role in proper function of the body, including egg and sperm health. Learn more about each of these important antioxidants here…

Reduce Exposure to Free Radicals
The human body is bombarded by free radicals daily. Not only can Ubiquinol, antioxidants and diet help improve cellular health and energy, but so can reducing exposure to free radicals. Avoid car exhaust, chemical pollution, smoking, alcohol, excessive exercise, and hydrogenated oils.

    You write: “Ubiquinol is …the most biologically active form …and does not need to be converted by the body. Ubiquinol is eight times more potent than ubiquinone.”
    My girlfriend and I will try to get pregnant around the new year. She is currently detoxing and I am researching supplements. I found absorption research by Dr. William Judy showing that it does not matter which form you initially take because ubiquinol actually oxidizes in the stomach. Besides, they are each other’s byproduct. Ubiquione is used for ATP production and in Oocyte meiosis. The ubiquinol byproduct then protects against free radicals. Why are you so much in favor of the more expensive ubiquinol when it’s the same?

    • Dear Davis,

      We suggest Ubiquinol as it more closely aligns with the needs of the women we work with most, women who are later in their fertile years, perhaps feel they have little time to make an impact before starting a fertility procedure or trying to conceive, and because of the research we’ve found and shared in our guide New Research on the Benefits of Ubiquinol for Egg Health.

      My best as you and your girlfriend choose what’s right for her needs!

    • Avatar

      I’ve done thorough research on the differences between the two forms as one form is much more expensive. According to one of the leading CoQ10 researchers the form simply doesn’t matter – actually only formulation matters.
      There’s a tremendous amount of research on ubiquinone showing great effects on dosing as small as 200mg/day. I don’t think we should glorify ubiquinol as it oxidizes in the gut and becomes ubiquinone before absorption.

    • That’s great Davis and you are welcome to take whichever form you wish.

    Hello, I’ve been told by many women that it’s wise to take Ubiquinol. However, I’ve read loads of other articles that have spoken about the pros of other holistic pills for the older 40 and TTC set, that I’m currently taking (Agnus Castus, N-Acetyl-Cysteine and Evening Primrose). I wonder if all these pills work with each other or I stand a chance of an adverse reaction by taking too much of a variety of pills? Should I drop the others and add Ubiquinol? Would Ubiquinol aid in my attempts to become pregnant while on my current selection?

    • Dear Valerie,

      Vitex agnus-castus, N-Acetyl-Cysteine and Evening Primrose Oil can all be combined with no known adverse affects. They can also all be combined with Ubiqionol with no known adverse effects. As we share in this giude, Ubiquinol is a nutrient that the aging body can need. I can not be certain how Ubiqionol will aid your attempts to become pregnant, but given what I know, it is a nutrient worth learning more about so you can decide if it’s right for you.

    In this part of your article, it states “A study published in Fertility and Sterility showed that supplementation of 600 mg of CoQ10 daily by older women improved both egg quality and fertilization rates.”

    But in this other part, it states “The suggested daily dose of Ubiquinol for the average person is 100 mg per day.”

    So is it 600mg or 100mg of ubiquinol?

    Looking forward to your reply. Thank so u much!

    • Dear Julie,

      Yes, that is data from one study. If you learn through testing your CoQ10 levels are low, your doctor may guide you to take more than the general suggested daily dose of Ubiquinol for the average person of 100 mg per day for a short time. 100mg is what one could take without knowing their levels or testing, or being “older”.

    Can you continue to take Ubiquinol if you are pregnant? And if so what are the benefits? After 8 months of trying and 1 chemical pregnancy 2 months ago, I started taking 100 mg Ubiquinol for 2 months and we just found out we are expecting.

    • Dear Cathleen,

      Congratulations on your pregnancy! What exciting news!

      Please talk to your healthcare provider about continuing this supplement in pregnancy or while nursing. There is limited research done to prove that CoQ10 ubiquinol supplementation is safe for pregnancy or lactation in the general population of pregnant women. He/she should guide and support you in taking products in pregnancy and/or know all you choose to take.

      Moving forward, a healthy diet and lifestyle are still key, perhaps more now than ever. I hope the following guides are helpful as you continue in your pregnancy…

    Recently started taking Ubiquinol but it gave me bad nausea and upset stomach (lasting 24 hours). Should I continue taking it to see if the side effects reduce or stop all together? I am also taking heparin and wondering how it interacts with this supplement.

    • Dear Fleur,

      May I know if it was FertilicaTM CoQ10 Ubiquinol that you took, how many each day for how many days, and if you took them with food that contained a healthy fat?

      It is up to you if you want to continue taking them. I would suggest considering the lowest suggested dose though for a few days/weeks to see how things go. You will need to talk to your doctor or pharmacist about any possible interaction with Heparin.

      Take care!

    Hello! I’ve just recently started researching supplements to take while naturally TTC. I’m 37 and my husband is 41. We’ve been trying for a year with a chemical pregnant halfway thru. I’m not looking to do medicated cycles yet, instead adding supplements to our already healthy lifestyle. My OB isn’t helpful when I ask about supplements so I’ve done my own research. Do you think 200mg would be enough dosage for the both of us?

    Curious question. Since independent research (not sponsored by ubiquinol raw material provider) has proven that ubiquinol has been oxidized and transformed to ubiquinone at the point of absorption in the small intestines – then completely reverted back to ubiquinol in the thoracic duct – does the issue at hand then not become a high quality product rather than which form (ubiquinone or ubiquinol) to take? It almost seems that we get tricked into paying more for a product form that the body converts back and forth to/from continuously. Just curious why the heavy emphasis on ubiquinol -we probably ought to save $$ and buy the oxidized form when our body swtiches to ubiquinol after absorption

    • Hello Sara!

      We cover why we feel and have learned it’s important to consider a ubiqionol supplement versus ubiquinone under the heading Why Ubiquinol is Superior to CoQ10 Alone. Ultimately the choice is the consumer’s though, we know this. Yet, when you can help the body do some of the work of utilizing a nutrient, the benefits may be reaped faster and the nutrient better used. We also know that as we age the conversion of ubiquinone to ubiquinol by the body isn’t as easy as it sounds in type.

    • Avatar

      Hi Sara, I just bought more Ubiquinol this weekend and while comparing the 300mg of COQ10 to the 100mg of Ubiquinol, the difference was only .10 a pill, so for me it’s worth it to pay an extra dime a day to be taking a more potent, easily absorbed form. The other thing that surprised me in my fertility workup is that I’m vitamin D deficient (I live in Arizona so I didn’t think that was possible) which also can affect egg quality, so be sure to get that checked too. Good luck!

    We wish to try naturally for 6 months after our first cycle of IVF (we lost the pregnancy at 5 weeks) but hubby has poor sperm quality so need a boost. When in your cycle would you recommend taking Ubiquinol? Can we both take it as I have problems with recurrent miscarriage? Would you recommend anything to go along side the Ubiquinol as Id like to also look at trying to thicken the lining of my uterus? Many thanks for your help.

      This would be best asked of your healthcare provider. 600mg daily is more than the general suggested use which we are allowed to share. That’s not to say there aren’t persons who may benefit from more though. We recognize that, yet it is best to work with a doctor if wanting to take more than a general suggested dose especially when preparing for IVF.

    Max antioxidents,
    Should I quit any of these after ovulation? I’m finding it really hard to obtain info on this. Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

    • Dear Nicola,

      Fertilica Royal Jelly, Maca, Co-Q10 Ubiquinol and L-Arginine can be taken all cycle long when trying to conceive and then discontinued upon first determination of pregnancy. I am not familiar with the product Max Antioxidants so it would be best to reach out to the maker of this product for their guidance.

    • Dear Romit,

      Fertilica CoQ10 Ubiqionol is the most biologically active form of coenzyme Q10. Ubiqionol has been shown through several studies to improve both egg and sperm health, while playing a key role in protecting DNA at a cellular level. Fertilica CoQ10 Ubiqionol is classified as a nutritional supplement, not a medicine, is of the highest quality which we stand by and is available in the Natural Fertility Shop.

      As shared in this article, the suggested daily dose of Ubiquinol for the average person is 100 mg per day. For those who are older, or suspect decreased levels of CoQ10 due to health issues, supplementation may be started at 200-300 mg per day for two weeks.

      Dear Jasmine,

      Fertilica CoQ10 Ubiquinol can be taken with a prenatal multivitamin.

      What is the recommended dosage?

    • Dear Jasmine,

      Suggested use of Ubiquinol for the most is 100 mg per day. Those who are older, or suspect decreased levels of CoQ10 due to health issues, may start at a dose of 200-300 mg per day for two weeks. We have learned that after two weeks, blood plasma levels of Ubiquinol plateau and the dosage may then be lowered to 100 mg per day, as maintenance.

      It is best to follow the suggested use on the product you purchase.

      Dear Germain,

      Fertilica CoQ10 Uniquinol has been shown through several studies to improve both egg and sperm health, while playing a key role in protecting DNA at a cellular level. While it is an important component of our egg and sperm health programs, there are also dietary and lifestyle components, as well as other herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies you might consider as well.

      Hi Germain, I’m not sure if I am too late in replying (a month later) but I just thought I would let you know. I am 41 and going for my 3rd try of IVF. This cycle my doctor has told me to go on CoQ10 at 300mg for 8 weeks before my cycle month. Along with Elevit, DHEA and Melatonin, all for 8 weeks before my cycle. You may want to check with your doctor for what they suggest for you.
