Quvital® CoQ10 capsules 100 mg contains 100 mg of Q10Vital®, an innovative form of water-soluble CoQ10 with clinically proven 4-times better bioavailability. Several clinical studies proved that Q1oVital® offers superior absorption compared to standard CoQ10, even in older adults. The products also contains vitamin B1 and vitamin B2. We recommend Quvital® CoQ10 capsules 100 mg to everyone after the age of 50, physically active people and athletes, statin (drugs to lower cholesterol levels in the blood) users and everyone with risk factors.
About Coenzyme Q10 and its deficiency
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a vitamin-like nutrient, naturally found in the human body. The highest levels of CoQ10 are found in the organs with high-energy requirements, such as heart, liver and kidney. Endogenous production of CoQ10 decreases rapidly after the age of 25. Smoking, stress, inadequate nutrition, statin therapy* and several other factors additionally effect CoQ10 levels in the human body. CoQ10 deficiency is associated with degenerative changes of aging, lack of energy and various health problems. CoQ10 supplementation is often recommended after the age of 30.
*Statins were shown to reduce the biosynthesis of CoQ10 and cause CoQ10 deficiency.
Clinically proven 4-times better absorption
Basic (crystalline) CoQ10 is a fat-soluble molecule and will only disperse in oils, which means it is very poorly absorbed, as the human body is mostly made of water. As an answer to this challenge, Valens developed a highly active water-soluble complex, with 4-times better absorption compared to basic CoQ10. This form, known as Q10Vital®, has been proven to be effective in several clinical studies. Superior absorption of Q10Vital® was proven even in adults over 65. Additionally, results of a clinical study show that Q10Vital® (as ubiquinone) is normally reduced to ubiquinol form during the absorption in the intestine – even in older adults*.
*The difference between Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol
CoQ10 is present in the human body in both, oxidized (ubiquinone) and reduced (ubiquinol) form. Its function is not affected by the form in which it is consumed, because ubiquinol shifts to ubiquinone during the absorption in the intestine. It was clinically proven (see Chart 2) that such conversion happens normally, even in older adults.
