Cyto-Q delivers CoQ10 in its reduced form of Ubiquinol, which is more easily absorbed and utilized. The most common form is Ubiquinone, but it needs to be converted to Ubiquinol in the body before being absorbed. Persons with compromised mitochondrial systems have been shown to be inefficient at this conversion.
