Douglas Laboratories - Ubiquinol-QH - 30 Caplique Capsules
Douglas Laboratories Ubiquinol-QH is a Caplique containing natural ubiquinol in a patented, naturally self-assembling nano-colloid system for enhanced absorption. Ubiquinol-QH provides 100 mg of natural CoQ10 ubiquinol in easy to swallow liquid filled capsules. Ubiquinol-QH may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support antioxidant, cellular energy, and cardiovascular function.
Ubiquinol is the biologically reduced form of ubiquinone, also known as coenzyme Q10. Ubiquinone can be converted by the body into ubiquinol. While supplemental ubiquinone plays a valuable role in health and can be utilized by the body, recent studies indicate that as people age, the body's ability to convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol begins to decline. Since this nutrient plays critical roles in antioxidant, cellular energy and cardiovascular function, ubiquinol may be of special importance for older adults looking to support normal aging and cardiovascular function. In one study, older adults with suboptimal cardiovascular function were found to be able to support and maintain their cardiovascular function with supplementation of ubiquinol.
Ubiquinol-QH is unique among other ubiquinol products as it utilizes the patented VESIsorb technology to deliver ubiquinol. When mixed with an aqueous system, this patented technology results in the formation of a nano-colloid containing solubilized ubiquinol. This association colloid delivery system contains a highly uniform distribution of droplets that are less than 100 nm in diameter. The size and structure of these droplets allow for enhanced solubility and absorption of ubiquinol (Figure 1). Figure 1 represents the structure of a nano-colloid droplet which consists of a monolayer with the ubiquinol contained within the core. The formation of the colloidal system upon contact with an aqueous environment (such as the lumen of the intestine) enables the solubilized ubiquinol to more easily diffuse across the unstirred water layer that is present between the enterocyte and the lumen of the intestine. One can demonstrate the enhanced solubility of the ubiquinol contained in Ubiquinol-QH by placing a capsule in warm water. Once the capsule opens, the contents can be easily mixed with the water, resulting in the formation of the association colloid. There is no separation of oil and water phases as is typical with more traditional delivery systems.
The bioavailability of VESIsorb CoQ10 formulation was clinically investigated with 3 other commercially available CoQ10 products, an oil-based formulation and 2 solubilizates. VESIsorb demonstrated a 696% increase in peak blood levels (Cmax) and a 485% increase in relative bioavailability (AUC(0-24 hr). This clinical study suggests that VESIsorb colloidal-Q10 improves the enteral absorption and the bioavailability of CoQ10 in humans.
