Choosing the best CoQ10 supplement
CoQ10, Coenzyme Q, Coenzyme Q10, Q10, ubiquinone, ubidecarenone—the list goes on. Coenzyme Q10 goes by quite a few different names, but each one represents the same supplement and to keep things simple we’ll stick with CoQ10 from here on out. CoQ10 is receiving praise in the nutrition industry at the same level as omega-3 fish oil and multivitamins. Basically, if you’re not taking it, you’re missing out on a lot of functional health benefits. CoQ10 is similar to fish oil in it’s ability to affect so many functions in the body such as energy production, heart health, blood pressure, brain function and more.
The Various Types of Coenzyme Q10 Supplements
- Ubiquinol: This version is the reduced (active) form of CoQ10 and is a more expensive but superior form of the coenzyme. This blend typically contains phosphatidylcholine, medium chain triglycerides, beeswax, rosmarinic acid and ascorbyl palmitate to further increase absorption.
- CoQ10 with Lecithin & Vitamin E: Contains soy lecithin and vitamin E to improve absorption. Studies have shown that CoQ10 absorbs more fully when suspended in an oil solution such as the one provided by this type of supplement.
- High Bioavailability CoQ10: This type of CoQ10 contains Bioperine (black pepper extract) which has been shown to improve the bioavailability and absorption of CoQ10.
- CoQ10 with Flax: Contains Coenzyme Q10 suspended in a flax oil softgel, providing a stable environment for CoQ10 to be delivered.
