A: BioQ10-SA is a new form of CoQ10 that was developed for superior absorption through a proprietary emulsification process. In order to be absorbed by the body, fat-soluble nutrients such as CoQ10 must first undergo emulsification in the digestive system. This process converts large fat droplets to be broken down into much smaller particles. These particles must then be dispersed in water for absorption through the small intestine. Because our digestive systems are not perfect, much of CoQ10 does not get absorbed. As we get older, this becomes even more of a problem because our digestive systems become less efficient as we age.
BioQ10-SA compensates for digestive inefficiencies and allows much more CoQ10 to be absorbed into the blood system.*
A: CoQ10 is processed with a specific protein structure from soy. This protein has both hydrophobic (water-fearing) and hydrophilic (water-loving) properties within each molecule. In the presence of the emulsifier, water-insoluble materials, like CoQ10, are surrounded by the both the hydrophobic element and the hydrophilic element. As a result, water-insoluble materials are dispersed with the emulsifier in water and easily absorbed in the small intestine.
A: With regards to your body being able to absorb and therefore utilize CoQ10, it compares extremely well. Laboratory studies clearly show that it has equal to or better absorption properties. The variance being what excipients are used in the capsule manufacture, and what other food types are in the digestive tract at the same time.
From the cost perspective, you will find that BioQ10 is significantly more economical than Ubiquinol.
A: The synergistic action of combining L-Carnitine and CoQ10 are significant. These 2 nutrients simply work better together. L-Carnitine shuttles fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are burned for energy production. CoQ10 is the spark that makes this conversion possible. L-Carnitine helps prevent cellular oxidation and removes toxic metabolites which improves mitochondria functioning. With L-Carnitine present, CoQ10 works with greater cellular ease and improves energy production, contributes to weight reduction, and extends the life of the cell contributing to healthful longevity.
