Q-Gel solubilized CoQ10 is natural Japanese coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) derived from microbial (yeast) fermentation, resulting in the production of the desirable trans isomer. The trans isomer is the form identical in structure to CoQ10 made by the human body, allowing for optimal bioactivity. Q-Gel CoQ10 is unique in that it is both Hydrosoluble and Liposoluble.*
The patented Bio-Solv technology reduces the CoQ10 particle size to a sub-micron range of 100-400 nm. This increases the surface area of CoQ10, enhancing its interaction with bile salts, the body's natural emulsifiers. The result is optimal micellization and absorption.* Vitamin E is added to enhance solubilization.* Q-Gel is backed by five bioavailability studies.* Absorption is independent of composition of meals (does not require concurrent fat intake for absorption).*
Uses For Q-Gel CoQ10
Cardiovascular Support: A meta-analysis involving 8 studies indicated that CoQ10 supplementation promotes ventricular health. Additional research suggests its ability to maintain healthy ventricular wall thickness. A role in healthy systolic and diastolic function, heart rhythm, endothelial function, and glycemic control has also been indicated. In addition, several randomized double blind, placebo-controlled studies indicate that CoQ10 promotes healthy blood flow as well as healthy lipid metabolism. Furthermore, it may help enhance exercise tolerance and moderate muscle fatigue.*
Cognitive and Nerve Health: One multicenter randomized double blind placebo-controlled trial involving 80 participants revealed that CoQ10 promoted cognitive, nerve and motor health, particularly at the larger dosage amounts. Another similar trial indicated that CoQ10 supplementation supported functional capacity.*
Musculoskeletal Health: Two double blind trials, involving individuals ranging in age from 7 to 69 years of age, suggest that healthy plasma CoQ10 levels are important for muscle function. The three-month studies revealed that CoQ10 supplementation promoted muscle bioenergetics and physical performance.*
Cellular Health: A prospective study involving almost 250 people recently revealed that healthy plasma levels of CoQ10 may be related to cell health, particularly for the skin, breast, lung and pancreas. Numerous studies further suggest a relationship between plasma CoQ10 levels and cell health, attributed in large part to cell membrane antioxidant protection.*
Immune Health: Preliminary but encouraging evidence suggests that CoQ10 supplementation may promote immune function, supporting lymphocyte activity and healthy T4/T8 lymphocyte ratio.*
Oral Health: One double blind study revealed that CoQ10 promotes periodontal health, as indicated by calculus and plaque scores. Another study indicated that CoQ10 supported healthy gums and promoted gingival tissue recovery.*
Men's Health: Research reveals that CoQ10 may promote sperm cell health. CoQ10 supplementation for 6 months boosted CoQ10 levels in seminal plasma and sperm cells, as well as promoted sperm cell motility.*
