Key Benefits At A Glance:

  • Reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease.
  • Boost energy levels.
  • Provide antioxidant protection.
  • Formulated with a highly absorbable and stable form of L-carnitine,  a substance that helps the body turn fat into energy.
  • Clinically studied formulation that has shown to provide significant improvements in cardiovascular health.

Product Description:

While every cell in the body requires Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) to produce energy, the cells in the heart require some of the most significant amounts.  This precise formula from Innovite Health has been clinically studied in a group of patients with congestive heart failure and was shown to provide significant improvements in cardiovascular health. INNO-Q-NOL Carnitine with Ubiquinol CoQ10 restores these antioxidant levels to support cardiovascular health but also includes L-carnitine, an amino acid (a building block for proteins), that is naturally produced in the body and  helps the body turn fat into energy.


Carnitine has a similar structure to the other amino acids but differs in its functioning. It is not used for protein metabolism or building neurotransmitters. Carnitine is a fat shuttle that moves long chain fatty acids into the “furnace” of the cell, the mitochondrion. Fat provides a valuable source of energy for muscles, including the hardest working muscle in the body, the heart.

Carnitine prevents fatty build up in the vessels, liver and muscles. It decreases cholesterol levels, supports weight loss, increases sperm motility and improves muscle strength. It is an anti-aging nutrient because it makes the antioxidants vitamins C and E work more effectively. L-carnitine is sometimes added to infant formulas to enhance energy production and stimulate growth. L-carnitine is recommended by natural health practitioners for heart disease, heart failure, high cholesterol, improved athletic performance, weight loss and male infertility.

Acetyl-L-carnitine is a derivative of carnitine that is produced by the body. It is used for protein and carbohydrate metabolism, in addition to its role in fat transportation. Acetyl-L-carnitine is well studied for its anti-aging effects. Daily supplementation slows the progression of Alzheimer’s disease by improving memory, attention, language and spatial abilities. Other health benefits of acetyl-L-carnitine are improved immune functioning, protection of the nerves and improved circulation.

The biologically active form of carnitine is L-carnitine or acetyl-L-carnitine. It is commonly found as a powder or in capsules. It may be found in formulas for heart health. It is used with coenzyme Q10 for supporting the heart. Because of their greater muscle mass, men require more carnitine than women. Vegetarians also tend to lack carnitine because food sources are animal based. Take amino acid supplements at least 1/2 hour before or after a meal to maximize their absorption. If you take an individual amino acid supplement for longer than one month, take it with an amino acid complex to prevent the deficiency of other amino acids.

Do not use supplements of D-carnitine or DL-carnitine. Do not use carnitine if you have decreased liver functioning. Carnitine can be depleted by medications like valproic acid and anti-virals.

Increased Need For CoQ10

Our bodies actually product CoQ10, but as we age – especially after the age 40 – its production begins to decline to such a level that by the time we are in our sixties our CoQ10 levels are only about 10% of what they were when we were in our thirties. Supplementing with a good quality coenzyme Q10 can help to replenish this shortfall and produce significant benefits for our health, at a time in people’s lives when they can need it most. Some studies have shown that as many as 75% of people are deficient in coenzyme Q10.

However, aging is not the only reason people can need to take a CoQ10 supplement. Exposure to toxins and pollutants result in severe oxidative stress from free radicals which deplete coenzyme Q10 and create a great need for more. Illnesses that put stress on the immune system will also deplete your coenzyme Q10 resources as it enhances tissue oxygenation.

How CoQ10 Ubiquinol Can Help

Heart Health – If you have any kind of heart health concern – or even a family history of it, CoQ10 ubiquinol should be one of the supplements in your daily regimen; the clinical evidence supporting CoQ10’s effectiveness in most cardiovascular concerns is vast. Study after study links CoQ10 deficiency to heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and more.

High Cholesterol is one of the major risk factors for heart attacks and stroke. The “bad” cholesterol is harmful because it is far more prone to oxidative damage from free radicals than the “good” HDL cholesterol. Once oxidized, LDL cholesterol then damages arteries, causing lesions to form, eventually causing the arterial blockages that can lead to a heart attack or stroke. CoQ10 can prevent this. As a fat soluble antioxidant, CoQ10 ubiquinol/ubiquinone can protect the bad LDL cholesterol from free radicals, as it too is a fat. Water soluble antioxidants such as vitamin C or selenium are unable to do this to the same extent, which makes CoQ10 the ideal nutritional supplement.

High Blood Pressure is sometimes called a “silent killer” as it often goes unnoticed until a major cardiac event. It can occur for a variety of different reasons, including high viscosity of the blood, narrowing of the arteries, and weak heart muscle. CoQ10 can help support healthy blood pressure by addressing each of these concerns. It helps the blood to be less viscous, thus making flow through arteries and veins with less force being exerted on blood vessel walls. By reducing the oxidation of cholesterol, CoQ10 reduces the progress of the narrowing of the arteries. In addition, as the most important muscle in the body, the heart requires Q10 more than any other. The heart is always pumping and needs a steady supply of ubiquinone / ubiquinol to continue its thousands of beats per day. Since CoQ10 is the spark plug for all muscular contractions, it is crucial for the heart to pump blood effectively. Without enough CoQ10, the beating of the heart can be erratic or even causing palpitations, causing blood pressure to rise. The preferred form in treating high blood pressure is the ubiquinol form; it has been clinically proven to reduce high blood pressure quicker and more effectively than standard ubiquinol.

CoQ10 and Energy

When people take ubiquinone or ubiquinol CoQ10 they will usually notice a substantial increase in energy, both mental and physical. As you read above, Coenzyme Q10 is needed by every muscle in the body. Muscles use a type of energy called ATP; it’s what each individual muscle cell uses to perform the contractions that result in any type of movement, whether its simply the diaphragm making the lungs inhale, or whether it’s running a marathon. CoQ10 is needed to make ATP; without enough, the muscles will fatigue sooner and to a greater degree. Many athletes take CoQ10 supplements, especially the ubiquinol form, to enhance their ATP production. Naturopathic doctors often recommend their patients with Fibromyalgia, (who have chronic muscle weakness) take CoQ10 for this same reason.


It has anti-aging properties because as an antioxidant it protects the body against environmental pollutants other substances that and lead to aging. The free radical theory of aging is generally accepted as one of the major external causes of the aging process. With CoQ10’s ability to stabilize free radicals, it can make a dramatic difference in reducing the DNA damage free radicals cause that can lead to the premature aging of tissues and the individual cells of which they are made. In addition, Coenzyme Q10 helps to improve circulation, which improves the flow of nutrients and oxygen to tissues, thus keeping them healthier longer.

Healthy Tidbits

In this century, the world will have more people living into their 80s and 90s than ever before, with the number of people 80+ set to quadruple between 2000 and 2050.


Increased life expectancy is largely due to improvements in public health, and healthy ageing is linked directly to health in earlier stages of life.


Although it is natural for biological processes to decline with age, the rate at which our body’s decline is impacted by many controllable lifestyle factors such as how we eat, how we move, and how many toxic substances we are exposed to.
