Dr. Stephen Sinatra (AKA: America's #1 Integrative Cardiologist) is highly respected and sought-after for his approach to cardiovascular health.
And, here's what he has to say about the nutrient CoQ10 and your heart...
"CoQ10 molecules perform a vital role in the production of the body's basic cellular fuel, adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This is the key reason a CoQ10 supplement is probably the single best nutrient you can take for your heart."
Dr. Sinatra uses CoQ10 supplementation as one of the key ingredients in his nutritional program for cardiovascular health. In fact, he says "I simply would not practice cardiology without it." (1).
Your body naturally produces CoQ10, however, this production declines substantially with age -- beginning as early as age 20 (2).
And, that's why we provide a convenient solution, Jigsaw CoQ10 w/SRT®.
Jigsaw CoQ10 w/SRT® utilizes MicroActive® CoQ10, which has been clinically tested in 6 human studies.
These studies show this unique form of CoQ10 offers 3 major advantages:
- Superior bioavailability*
- 24-hour time release*
- Universally enhanced absorption in all users*
Jigsaw CoQ10 w/SRT® uses non-GMO potato starch converted to ß-cyclodextrin. The ß-cyclodextrin is what encapsulates the CoQ10, allowing the CoQ10 to become water-dispersible. This ensures better, more efficient absorption in the body.*
CoQ10 has poor bioavailability in the body because the molecule size is too large to pass through the intestinal wall for absorption and because it's fat-soluble, making it more difficult to get through the digestive system.
Jigsaw CoQ10 w/SRT® solves these issues by using cyclodextrins in the manufacturing process.
Each molecule of CoQ10 is joined with two cyclodextrin molecules, forming a complex. In the process of forming the complex, CoQ10 is reduced to it's molecular size so it can pass through the intestinal wall more easily.
This unique complex also allows the CoQ10 molecule to become water-dispersible. This happens because the CoQ10 is encapsulated by cyclodextrin, which is water-dispersible. Thus, the complex of the two becomes water-soluble and more easily transported to the absorption site in the small intestines.*
