After years of development, a breakthrough technology solution has finally arrived. MicroActive Q10® is a new patented form of CoQ10 that has been shown in clinical trials to solve the uneven CoQ10 absorption problem and assure uniform enhanced absorption for everyone. The first CoQ10 product in the market to utilize the new technology is CoQ10-SR from Quality of Life Labs.
Here is how CoQ10-SR works. Each molecule of fat-soluble CoQ10 is 'bonded' with a molecule of water-soluble beta-cyclodextrin (a natural derivative of starch). This process allows easy transport to the cells, as the beta-cyclodextrin 'taxi' transports the CoQ10 easily through the digestive system to the cells and is not dependent upon the amount of fats in the diet. (This is particularly important for people on low-fat diets.) The MicroActive technology featured in CoQ10-SR also reduces the particle size significantly so it easily penetrates the cells and, in addition, the betacyclodextrin CoQ10 combination produces a sustained release so that even if the efficiency of the digestive system varies, CoQ10 is still absorbed.
Four clinical studies have concluded that CoQ10-SR is three times better absorbed than regular (crystalline) CoQ10, two times better absorbed than solubilized ('improved bioavailability') CoQ10 soft gels, and delivers sustained release over 24 hours. Uniform absorption was found in both 24-hour and three week studies. For example, 100 percent of a group taking the MicroActive® form doubled their CoQ10 levels after three weeks, while only 43 percent of the group taking the 'more bioavailable' solubilized form show the same result. Providing such uniform absorption in everyone, CoQ10-SR is the only product of its kind in the market. So when you reflect on the fact that 'you are what you absorb,' you should be using products with guaranteed absorption. And when it comes to Coenzyme Q10, CoQ10-SR clearly stands out from the rest of the pack.
