CAVAQ10® I WACKER CoQ10 Complex
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), also known as “ubiquinone,” is a fat-soluble vitamin-like substance that is found in almost all living cells. It is well known as a redox carrier in the mamallian respiratory transport chain, where it helps to efficiently convert the energy in the food we eat into fuel for the body. With its multiple biofunctionalities it addresses contemporary consumer demands, such as anti-aging, energy-supply and heart health. As a fat-soluble nutrient, however, CoQ10 is poorly absorbed. Supplying the body with beneficial amounts of CoQ10 can therefore be difficult. Thanks to CAVAQ10®, WACKER now offers a highly bioavailable CoQ10 powder. A human clinical trial has shown that bioavailability of this gamma-cyclodextrin complex is 18-fold higher than uncomplexed CoQ10 (Terao et al., 2006).
CAVAQ10® is a free-flowing, yellow powder that allows our customers to develop supplements in various dosage forms, such as tablets, capsules, nutrition bars and drinks.
