Max CoQ10 is an all-natural, proprietary, patent-pending, crystal/solvent-free, lipid-stabilized CoQ10 shown in recent clinical trials to be more than eight times as absorbable as powdered forms of CoQ10 and more than twice as bioavailable as oil-based or “nano” formulas. Max CoQ10’s proprietary monoglyceride carrier is a patent-pending formulation unmatched for optimal utilization in the support of cardiovascular, CNS, immune, and energy-based health needs.

Coenzyme Q10 is a biologically active, natural vitamin-like substance belonging to a group of compounds called ubiquinones. Structurally similar to vitamin K, it is present in animal protein and can be synthesized in the body. However, a variety of factors, including aging, may cause a CoQ10 deficiency.
Despite its poor absorption (0.6-1.0%), pure crystalline (powdered) CoQ10 was the industry standard from the 1970’s to the mid-1990’s. A variety of forms and delivery systems offering somewhat improved absorption (2.3-5%) have entered the market since 1995; however, these forms have been unstable and crystallized, making them difficult or impossible for the body to absorb.
Max CoQ10 represents a new generation of CoQ10 supplements. Unlike many others in today’s market place, it is crystal-free when examined by a light microscope. This patent-pending formulation contains three lipids to aid in dissolving CoQ10 crystals into single molecules, stabilizing the formula to prevent re-crystallization, and facilitating passive diffusion to enhance absorption.
A full double-blind, randomized clinical trial in twenty normal human volunteers with a relatively controlled diet was performed to determine the absorption and steady-state bioavailability characteristics. Absorption involves several phases in the movement of CoQ10 through a portion of the digestive tract, into the lymphatics, and into general circulation, where it becomes bioavailable. Absorption is reflected by the time base changes in the amount of CoQ10 appearing in the blood plasma after the ingestion of a single known dose. Bioavailability refers to the amount of CoQ10 accumulated in the blood plasma over an extended time after taking a known constant daily dose.
Within the trial, a 36-hour absorption study showed that Max CoQ10 had a total absorption 783% greater than powdered CoQ10 (11.65% vs 1.32%). The bioavailability study measured blood accumulation (mg) of CoQ10 over 28 days. The 28-day steady-state bioavailability for Max CoQ10 was 8.86 mg, compared to 1.64 mg for the dry powder standard. The relative bioavailability showed that Max CoQ10 was 541% more bioavailable than the standard product. The AUC (0-28 day) was 680 mg/day compared to 120 mg/day or 463% more bioavailable
than the dry powder standard.
Max CoQ10 is titanium dioxide-free, making the softgel transparent and permitting verification of the crystal-free claim.

Excellent way to build up your aspects of your entire vascular system and neurovascular system. This combination is clean and pure since all the research out on CoQ10 in the past years show the vast benefits. This is the most bio available on the market.
