Life Extension's new Super Absorbable CoQ10™ with d-Limonene is a super-emulsified formulation that significantly increases the amount of CoQ10 absorbed. D-limonene is a natural compound in orange oil that disperses and breaks down the CoQ10 particles, which reduces their size and makes CoQ10 more absorbable by the body.
Unlike other supplements that contain micronized CoQ10 particles, Super Absorbable CoQ10 with d-Limonene contains smaller, nano-sized CoQ10 particles that enhance this absorption. Research shows that people taking this formula have higher blood levels of CoQ10 than those taking other formulas.
The patent-pending emulsifying system breaks down the fat-soluble CoQ10 particles into millons of microscopic droplets, allowing the body to absorb the CoQ10 much more effectively. Life Extension uses only naturally extracted, cold-pressed orange oil to yield d-limonene, which has been shown in clinical studies to promote healthy cell division.*
The mitochondria are the cell's energy powerhouses, and coenzyme Q10 is an essential component of healthy mitochondrial function. 2 *
CoQ10 is required to convert fats and sugars into cellular energy, yet the natural production of CoQ10 declines precipitously with advancing age. 3 When the body has an ample amount of CoQ10 the mitochondria can work most efficiently throughout the entire body, in cells everywhere, including the most densely populated area, the heart. 4
When coenzyme Q10 is orally ingested, only a certain percentage is actually absorbed into the bloodstream. Findings in human subjects indicate that higher doses of CoQ10 provide significantly better effects than the doses that supplement users typically take. Since CoQ10 is such an expensive nutrient, an alternative to taking higher doses is to increase the amount of CoQ10 that is absorbed.
Life Extension is pleased to announce the availability of an emulsified formulation that significantly increases the amount of CoQ10 absorbed into the bloodstream compared to previous versions. By delivering so much more CoQ10 into the blood, Super-Absorbable CoQ10™ with d-Limonene drastically reduces the cost per milligram for consumers. By taking just one 100 milligram capsule per day of this formulation, people obtain the benefit of taking higher amounts of regular CoQ10 supplements.
For those who want to take very high doses of CoQ10, a 200-milligram softgel capsule of the Super Absorbable CoQ10™ with d-Limonene is available. By taking just two of these 200 milligram capsules per day, one would obtain CoQ10 blood levels equivalent to ingesting about 697 milligrams of conventional CoQ10 supplements.
