One of the most common questions I get is: Which form of CoQ10 should be taken, ubiqunon or ubiqunol?

As I said all over my blog blog, CoQ10 is the essential part of the energy-producing system in each and every cell, eggs included. (What personally amazes me is that eggs contain by far more mitochondria, than just about any other cell in the body. Only the heart cells come close to eggs in the number of mitochondria, showing the intensity of their energy demand.) This energy is finally utilized in the electron-rich, reduced form of ubiqunol-CoQ10.

That’s why is I would strongly recommend to take the dose which was published to actually give the results – 600mg per day and to take it in the form of ubiquinol.

Many supplement producers claim the ubiquinol form of CoQ10 is five to eight times more potent in reaching the therapeutic effects of CoQ10 concentration in blood that is needed for improving egg quality and health. But is that true?

I don’t know. My gut feeling is that ubiqinol is definitely more potent but some of the effects may be pushed by the supplements industry and may have to do more with positioning a product on the market than real differences in terms of affecting egg quality.
