CoQ10 has poor bioavailability within the body because the molecule size is too large to pass through the intestinal wall for absorption. Jigsaw's CoQ10 w/SRT® solves this issue by using cyclodextrins in the manufacturing process.
Each molecule of CoQ10 is joined with two cyclodextrin molecules, forming a complex. The CoQ10 molecules are then prevented from re-aggregating because the cyclodextrin in the complex keeps them separated, making the MicroActive® CoQ10 micronized.*
The second benefit derived from cyclodextrins is that they render the hydrophobic CoQ10 molecule water-dispersible. This happens because the CoQ10 enters the hydrophobic cavity within the cyclodextrin molecule. The outer surface of the cyclodextrin is hydrophilic, which makes the molecule water-soluble/dispersible. Thus, the complex of the two becomes water-soluble and more easily transported to the absorption site in the small intestines.*
