- Promotes antioxidant defense
MicroActive® CoQ10 is a water-soluble, submicron particle-sized CoQ10 generated through a patented process that complexes each CoQ10 molecule with a beta-cyclodextrin molecule. CoQ10 is bound to the lipophilic end of the molecule, while the other end is hydrophilic, facilitating dispersion and transport. At the cellular surface, the complex dissociates, liberating a single CoQ10 molecule for efficient absorption. Clinical research indicates superior absorption compared to solubilized and crystalline CoQ10, with low inter-subject variance. The actions of CoQ10 are particularly supportive of tissues that require a lot of energy, such as the heart muscle. CoQ10 provides multifunctional support for cardiovascular health through different mechanisms, including mitochondrial and antioxidant support. Research indicates that CoQ10 supports heart muscle function and healthy cellular oxygen utilization by promoting energy production as a core component of cellular respiration. Furthermore, it acts as an antioxidant, providing protection from free radicals and helping to maintain the integrity of cellular membranes. PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a novel redox cofactor naturally present in vegetables and in the human body, including breast milk. BioPQQ® is manufactured in Japan using a patented natural fermentation process, and has been studied in numerous mechanistic investigations as well as a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
