January this year seemed to be super busy for me. Not only it’s when I had properly started my London Marathon training, but there were quite a few events/shows I was delighted to be invited to.
One of these was the National Running Show at the NEC Birmingham. What can be better for a runner than being surrounded by thousands of other passionate runners?
After wading through masses of runners, I was very excited to meet the Kaneka team. I couldn’t wait to find out more about the Kaneka Ubiquinol, the latest innovation in sports nutrition which boosts energy before, during and after exercise.
This was the best timing for me as any marathon training is no walk in a rose garden. It’s about hard work, pushing yourself, improving endurance and good recovery.
CoQ10 is a required nutrient found in every cell of your
There are two forms of CoQ10:
- Ubiquinone – the oxidized form (conventional Coenzyme Q10).
- Ubiquinol – the active form that is the most effectively absorbed. Only Ubiquinol has an anti-oxidative ability.
Kaneka has developed the only naturally produced quality Ubiquinol ingredient available on the market which is available to buy as a food supplement from Revive Active.
Exercise and training can put a strain on the body and reduce energising levels of Ubiquinol.
Lower Ubiquinol levels mean that the body’s natural energy levels can drop, which can make it harder to bounce back from a tough workout.
Unlike quick energy fixes such as caffeine, Ubiquinol provides sustained, long-term energy and can help improve physical performance.
It also helps to delay fatigue during high-intensity exercise and aids muscle recovery. Each capsule is vegetarian friendly and gluten free

oost with Kaneka Ubiquinol
Some people don’t like taking supplements, and I believe that making sure you eat a well-balanced diet is vital. On the other hand, getting everything we need from food isn’t always the best option, often it’s actually impossible.
Ubiquinol is found in many foods (oily fish, meats, whole grains). However, it is difficult to achieve the daily recommended dose (100 – 150mg) without consuming excessive amounts of these foods.
For example, can you imagine eating 1.5kg of peanuts or 34 chicken breasts daily? I LOVE avocados, but can never picture myself eating 60 avocados every day. That would probably put me off.
The Ubiquinol that occurs naturally in foods also oxidises very quickly and is easily converted to Ubiquinone, the inactive form of CoQ10 when it is cooked.
These were all the reasons why I was very keen on trying the Kaneka Ubiquinol for the past few weeks.
Not only I have felt more energetic since then, but I have also found my recovery after long runs faster than before. This is great news especially for my marathon training.
I will keep on powering my workouts with Kaneka Ubiquinol. Give it a go and let me know your thoughts on Ubiquinol too.
