Redox Status of Coenzyme Q10 is Associated With Chronological Age

Research has continued to uncover the association between oxidative stress and aging, and recent work done at Kyorin University in Japan demonstrates that Ubiquinol is involved. The blood levels of the both forms of CoQ10 in subjects in different ages were examined.

They found that aged subjects not only have reduced CoQ10 biosynthesis, but their ability to convert Ubiquinone to Ubiquinol is also diminished.
