BodyBio CoQ10 provides CoQ10 as Q-Gel®, a unique form of CoQ10 that is quickly absorbed and utilized by the body.
Many CoQ10 products on the market today are oil soluble, making them difficult to absorb. Achieving the optimal benefits of CoQ10 is not a matter of how much you take, but of how much CoQ10 is absorbed.
BodyBio CoQ10 is 100% hydrosoluble for higher sustained CoQ10 blood levels and proven via several bioavailability studies in human subjects, to be a highly bioavailable CoQ10 supplement.
Absorption of CoQ10 is relatively low, especially if a supplement is taken on an empty stomach. For that reason, it is best taken with food, preferably containing some fat. Normally, it takes several weeks of CoQ10 supplementation to reach maximal serum concentrations. Thereafter, daily dosing will maintain the plateau.
CoQ10 belongs to a family of fat-soluble substances called ubiquinones, all of which are known as coenzymes Q. It is synthesized in humans, where it is used to manufacture ATP, a major form of energy available for immediate use by the body. It also functions as an endogenous (made inside the body) antioxidant, protecting mitochondria from free radical damage.
