Higher Absorption with WIN-CFT
Coenzyme Q10 exists in both ubiquinol and ubiquinone forms, and both are necessary to produce cellular energy. Ubiquinone is the oxidized form of CoQ10 that consumers are most familiar with; it has been taken as a supplement and studied for more than 40 years. Over the past three decades, CoQ10 has been recognized for its benefits to general health and wellness as well cardiovascular and neurological health.
In order to generate cellular energy, the body must convert ubiquinone into ubiquinol. The body is dependent on this conversion; otherwise energy levels cannot be sustained. Thus, both are critical to sustaining your body’s natural energy. Ubiquinol, however, is in reduced form allowing easier absorption within the body, providing a strong first-stage defense against cellular oxidative stress.*
For example, a recent peer-reviewed study measured the absorption
in humans supplementing with 150 mg and 300 mg of this new ubiquinol
form of coenzyme Q10. As shown in the chart above, far lower amounts
of ubiquinol produce about the same blood (plasma) levels, compared
with much higher amounts of ubiquinone. This chart shows that it takes
8-times more ubiquinone to increase CoQ10 blood levels to what can
be achieved with much lower amounts of ubiquinol.†
WIN CoQ10 includes a new, patent-pending crystal free technology, WIN-CFT, which provides a clearer appearance and improves CoQ10’s absorption rate within the body. The solution featuring D-Limonene oil helps better protect ubiquinol from oxidization. When oxidization does occur, ubiquinol crystallizes — resulting in a cloudy, opaque appearance. By keeping the CoQ10 solubilized, the soft-gel looks much clearer and the required amount of oil solution is halved, providing us with a smaller soft gel, all while improving CoQ10 bioavailability within the body.
