Ubiquinol Supplementation Enhances Peak Power Production in Trained Athletes

Researchers investigated the effect of Ubiquinol supplementation on physical performance measured as maximum power output in young and healthy elite trained athletes.

The study demonstrates that daily supplementation of 300 mg Ubiquinol for 6 weeks significantly enhanced physical performance measured as maximum power output by +0.08 W/kg bw (+2.5%) versus placebo in young healthy trained German Olympic athletes. While adherence to a training regimen itself resulted in an improvement in peak power output, as observed by improvement in placebo, the effect of Ubiquinol supplementation significantly enhanced peak power production in comparison to placebo.
