Q10Vital® is a unique patented water-soluble form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) with clinically proven superior bioavailability. It offers numerous advantages over other forms of CoQ10. Q10Vital® is known for its efficiency, versatility and simplicity in the enrichment of various foods and beverages, cosmetics, food supplements and other products.
Its solubility and stability in diverse aqueous media, unchanged organoleptic properties of enriched products and superior bioavailability have all led to a breakthrough in Q10Vital® usage globally. It is extremely simple to handle, it can be added to a variety of aqueous and non-aqueous base products at various temperatures. It is available in liquid and powder forms to enable the best possible application.
Clinically proven superior absorption
The efficiency of orally-ingested products depends on their absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. The superior absorption of CoQ10 in Q10Vital® has been determined by two independent bioequivalence studies, showing about 400% bioavailability when compared to crystalline Q10.
Figure: The bioavailability of Q10 from Q10Vital® is significantly higher than in the case of crystalline Q10.
Proven effect on beauty
A recent study on 33 women volunteers has shown that long term oral intake of Q10Vital improves some skin conditions, particularly evenness, firmness and subsequently the skin microrelief. Effects are dose-related as a higher dose (150 mg CoQ10/day) proved more effective than a lower (50 mg/day) dose. The study was made in cooperation with Higher School of Applied Sciences, Slovenia and will be presented in 8th Conference of the International Coenzyme Q10 Assosiation in October 2015.
The difference between Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol
A lot of effort has been made in promoting both forms (names) in commercial purposes. To explain the “difference” from scientific point of view is very easy: Coenzyme Q10 is present in the human body in both: oxidized (ubiquinone) and reduced (ubiquinol) form. Ubiquinone is being reduced to ubiquinol during or following the absorption in the intestine, consequently its function is not affected by the form in which it is consumed. The key challenge is the initial CoQ10 absorption, which is highly improved with Valens Q10Vital.
The role of Coenzyme Q10 in human health
Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring fat-soluble substance and it is essential for the functioning of an organism. Present in every cell in the body, it is concentrated in organs that require the most energy — such as the heart, liver, muscles and kidneys. CoQ10 is concentrated in these organs because it is essential to the process of producing cellular energy.
Apart from its key role in energy metabolism CoQ10 has significant positive effect on:
- Releasing energy and fighting fatigue
- Fighting free radical as a very effective natural antioxidant
- Improving heart function, also as a therapy to hypertensive and angina patients
- Fighting side effects of using statins (drugs for lowering cholesterol)
- Treating patients with neurodegenerative and mitochondrial diseases (including Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and Friedreich’s ataxia)
- Reducing migraine attacks
- Supporting immune system
- Treating periodontal disease
- Treating male infertility and many other conditions.
