COQ10 has helped me maintain healthy blood pressure levels.
CoQ10 complex in crystalline form supports uniform absorption and time release claims. In addition, if taken at higher doses, claims for heart and circulatory health benefits can be made, and can provide assurance of doubling CoQ10 levels in three weeks.*
CoQ10 w/SRT® uses the clinically shown MicroActive® CoQ10. MicroActive® CoQ10 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. 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. In the process of forming the complex, CoQ10 is reduced to its molecular size. The CoQ10 molecules are then prevented from reaggregating 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 in 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.
The video below does a great job explaining this process and why it's important for bioavailability of the CoQ10.
CoQ10 plays a vital role in energy production, and as such, also plays and important role in providing cellular energy for your heart.*
CoQ10 is the most powerful lipid soluble antioxidant. Therefore, it supports the body's systems for addressing the day-to-day effects of free radicals and oxidative stress. This support helps to promote and enhance your heart's health.*
CoQ10's role in energy production and antioxidant support can also help promote the health of other vital organs in your body, such as your brain.*
Many adults use statins to balance their cholesterol levels. After prolonged use, however, statins can affect CoQ10 levels. Since it's important to maintain these stores, physicians often recommend supplementing with CoQ10 alongside statins.*
Unlike caffeine or sugar which boost energy levels quickly and can cause a “crash” later, CoQ10 is not a quick fix for those looking for increased energy. Rather, it offers sustained natural energy as CoQ10 levels are restored within the body.*
Although each individual is different, it generally takes two to three weeks to restore optimal CoQ10 levels in blood plasma and tissues. Most people will begin feeling the effects as their individual plasma levels start to increase, which is generally around the 5th day.*
