CoQ10 is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like substance found in the mitochondria of almost all cells in the body. It is used in the electron transport chain, the process of aerobic cellular respiration that generates 90-95% of the energy used by the body.* It is also a powerful antioxidant.*
As a food supplement, crystalline CoQ10 is poorly absorbed. In fact, on average, only 3% of the dose taken is absorbed. As a result, many forms of CoQ10 have been introduced on the market, claiming greater bioavailability. How well they are absorbed varies greatly from person to person. Some subjects will absorb these improved forms well, while others will absorb only small amounts – uniform bioavailability is not guaranteed.
MicroActive® CoQ10 specifically targets this problem. Backed by four human clinical studies, 24-hour MicroActive CoQ10 has consistently improved bioavailability.
- It is up to 4 times better absorbed than regular (crystalline) CoQ10.
- Absorbs 2 times better than solubilised (improved bioavailability) CoQ10 soft gels
- Doubles CoQ10 levels from baseline after 3 weeks in 100% of users.
