Usually the most recommended form of CoQ10 would be the ubiquinol but either of them can be used successfully as a supplement.

When it comes to coenzyme Q10 there are generally two main different types: ubiquinol and ubiquinone. Ubiquinol is the active form, so this is absorbed more readily so it is thought to be the more effective of the two. However it might be the more expensive one so it is not to say that ubiquinone cannot help, it is likely to help. If you are going between the two and you want to know which is more effective. It is probably likely to be ubiquinol.
