Jarrow Formulas Ubiquinol QH-Absorb, 100 mg, 120 Count

Jarrow Formulas Ubiquinol  QH-Absorb, 100 mg, 120 Count Lowest new price: $33.00
List price: $79.95
Brand: Jarrow
Model: JAR60253

Ubiquinol is the reduced (active antioxidant) state of Co-Q10, the form produced by our cells and is significantly better absorbed as a supplement, particularly as we age. Jarrow Formulas QH-absorb is a proprietary enhanced stability formula, which has been clinically shown in humans to increase Co-Q10 levels up to 777% (6.14x) over baseline at 300 mg per day intake.

Ubiquinones are a series of homologous molecules that possess a quinone active center and an unsaturated fatty tail. Ubiquinones are so named because they are widely distributed (i.e. ubiquitous) in nature and throughout the human body. Structurally they are very similar to the menaquinones, like vitamin K2. The quinone group is like a courier for protons and electrons, which is the critical property that allows ubiquinones to act as antioxidants and as important intermediates in energy generation. The fatty tail is composed of isoprenoid subunits, which are five carbon building blocks that help all living things biosynthesize critical components like immune modulators, essential oils and hormones. The number of isoprenoid units in the fatty tail is often denoted in the name of specific ubiquinones. For instance, ubiquinone-10 is made from ten isoprenoid units. Ubiquinone-10 (aka CoQ10, coenzyme Q10, Q) is more commonly referred to as just "ubiquinone." This is because it is the most prevalent ubiquinone in almost all mammals, including humans.

Sustainable

Concern about CoQ10 levels is especially important due to concern that cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) work by inhibiting an enzyme that is also responsible for CoQ10-ubiquinol biosynthesis. As a result, anyone taking statins may have reduced levels of CoQ10-ubiquinol.

What is Ubiquinol?

Ubiquinone and ubiquinol (aka ubiquinol-10, CoQ10-H2, QH, "reduced" CoQ10) are intimately related, as their names suggest. Inside the body, Q (ubiquinone) can only achieve its important functions in energy production , cardiovascular health and antioxidant protection with the help of ubiquinol (QH).* In fact, all of the benefits that have been attributed to CoQ10 necessitate QH involvement. The two do their work by shuttling electrons and protons back-and-forth, cyclically transforming from Q to QH and back again. In energy production, CoQ10 facilitates electron transfer within mitochondrial membranes to produce ATP, the body's energy currency.* For antioxidant protection, QH is the "active antioxidant" form of CoQ10. This means that Q that has not been converted to QH is inactive as an antioxidant. Perhaps this explains why circa 80-95 percent of total CoQ10 exists as QH in the blood and in healthy tissues that require its antioxidant function.*

Is Taking QH Better Than Taking Q?

CoQ10 is critically obtained from the diet, but it appears that absorption of Q may entail conversion to QH. This conversion occurs as early as in the enterocytes, the absorptive cells in the intestine, and may facilitate the absorption process. Also under normal conditions there are enzymes that help regenerate QH from Q, in the body. Unfortunately, aging and illness can lead to both a reduced ability to regenerate QH because of decreased enzyme activity and a decreased ability to absorb Q itself, possibly for the same reason.

After about age 45, total Q levels and QH levels tend to decline in various critical tissues. Some physicians have even started to use blood and tissue ratios of QH to Q as a biomarker for age- and health-related oxidative stress. So it may not come as a surprise that taking QH can provide benefits that surpass those obtained from taking standard Q. But where's the evidence?

QH-absorb Clinical Research

Eleven young, healthy adults ingested 100 mg of QH-absorb with food three times daily (100 mg, t.i.d.) for fourteen days. Blood levels of total CoQ10, oxidized CoQ10 (Q) and reduced CoQ10 (QH) were measured at baseline and after fourteen days. This regimen of QH-absorb consumption resulted in a 777 percent mean increase of total CoQ10 levels compared to baseline and a 100 percent increase in plasma QH levels, the "active antioxidant" form of CoQ10.

Two conclusions can be drawn from these study results. First, it appears that even young, healthy individuals can achieve benefits from taking ubiquinol (reduced CoQ10) from QH-absorb that surpass taking Q alone. Previously, it was presumed that only older individuals would benefit from taking QH-absorb as it is known that starting about the age of 40, QH levels begin to decrease in the body. Second, the 777 percent increase of total CoQ10 levels measured after taking QH-absorb is more than double the levels achieved by even the best Q supplements. This suggests QH-absorb is at least twice as efficient in raising blood CoQ10 levels.*

Ubiquinol (QH) is Safe

Scientists have understood the value of QH for decades. It has just taken that long to figure out a way to stabilize QH so it can be formulated into a nutritional supplement product. Toxicity studies have shown little concern with taking QH directly, even at high doses. Plasma QH levels appear to plateau after two to four weeks of daily ingestion and then return near to baseline two weeks after daily ingestion is discontinued. It also appears that supplementation with QH does not reduce CoQ10 biosynthesis in the body.

Jarrow Formulas QH-absorb is made with ubiquinol (QH) the more bioavailable, active-antioxidant form of CoQ10. It utilizes the Q-absorb natural, proliposomal delivery system for enhanced absorption beyond that of QH alone.

Jarrow Formulas Lutein, 20 mg, 60 Count Lowest new price: $7.70
List price: $17.95
Brand: Jarrow
Model: JAR20254

Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature with zeaxanthin, a closely related carotenoid. Lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eye’s macula and lens, as well as in the skin, breast and cervical tissues.* Both lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula from degradation normally associated with aging and oxidative stress.* The macula is responsible for focus and color differentiation. Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in dark green, leafy vegetables. While the average American intake of lutein is only 2 mg per day, other population groups consume up to 20 to 25 mg per day.* Jarrow Formulas Lutein is extracted from marigold petals. Each softgel contains 20 mg lutein (net yield) from lutein esters, which are naturally occurring, more stable and are well absorbed.

Two "Minor" Carotenoids Provide Major Protection

Jarrow Formulas Lutein is a blend of lutein and zeaxanthin extracted from marigold petals and then purified into crystalline form. These carotenoids (a family of brightly colored pigments in plant foods) are less common than their better-known relative, beta-carotene, but they appear to offer more and greater benefits to the body. In particular, lutein and zeaxanthin have been shown clinically to support visual function and to protect the health of eye tissues as we age.* In addition, preliminary research suggests that lutein and zeaxanthin may support the cardiovascular system and help to maintain normal cell differentiation in the tissues of the breast, cervix, colon and skin.*

What are Lutein and Zeaxanthin?

Lutein and zeaxanthin are important antioxidants used by the body for a number of physiological functions.* Lutein is a carotenoid which does not supply vitamin A activity to the body. It is chemically distinctive in that it lacks part of the terminal "ring" structure of the other carotenoids. Like its close relative zeaxanthin, lutein is what is termed a xanthophyll carotenoid. Both of these related carotenoids are better antioxidants than is beta-carotene under normal oxygen conditions. Lutein can be metabolized into zeaxanthin and is therefore the more essential carotenoid. Zeaxanthin has been shown to be present in the center of the macula. Lutein and zeaxanthin are usually found together in leafy green vegetables, such as kale, broccoli, spinach and mustard greens.

One of the primary functions of lutein and zeaxanthin is to provide protection against oxidative and free radical damage.* These yellow-colored carotenoids are found in high concentrations within the macula lutea (the yellow spot in the center of the retina) and in smaller amounts throughout the retina and the eye lens. They are also present in the skin, breast and cervical tissues. These stores, however, appear to diminish with age if not regularly replenished through dietary means.*

Healthy Vision

Scientists believe that lutein and zeaxanthin contribute to the density of macular pigment--the component of the eye which typically absorbs and filters out 40 to 60 percent of damaging near-ultraviolet blue light (near-UV blue light) which strikes the retina. The denser the pigment, the more the inner retina is protected from light-induced damage. Lutein/zeaxanthin also helps limit blue light damage to the inner retina by protecting against lipid peroxidation and by neutralizing free radicals.*

Considerable evidence shows the importance of lutein and zeaxanthin in supporting the health of the eye lens as we age.* The results of a study published in the British Medical Journal showed that the consumption of spinach maintained eye lens health better than other vegetables, such as carrots, sweet potatoes and winter squash, which contain primarily beta-carotene and very little lutein. Similarly, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, people who eat foods rich in lutein--particularly kale and spinach--are more likely to maintain optimal vision.* Protection most likely comes from the scavenging of free radicals. Lutein/zeaxanthin helps to guard against peroxidation in the lens, thus limiting damage to this tissue.*

Cardiovascular Health

As is true of vitamin E, but not of other carotenoids, lutein is found in blood plasma at levels correlated with the amount of cholesterol. Tests suggest that although lutein is a relatively minor component of LDL cholesterol in comparison with vitamin E, its antioxidant protective effects may be ten times greater if compared on a one-to-one basis.*

Regulated Cell Growth

Several studies have indicated that lutein and zeaxanthin may be helpful in protecting cells in various tissues of the body, such as the skin, breast, cervix and large intestine.* A 1999 Harvard epidemiological study indicated that lutein is one of the nutrients which is associated with better breast health.* Likewise, a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found a similar positive association between the consumption of lutein and colon health.* Lutein, like lycopene and a number of other carotenoids, would appear to influence the regulation of cell growth and repair.*
