Commercial coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10, ubiquinone) formulations are often of poor intestinal absorption. [] Key Method Twenty healthy male and female subjects participated in a double-blind, comparative (parallel design), controlled, single-dose (120 mg) bioavailability study. Plasma concentration of CoQ10 was determined at baseline and at various intervals after administration over a 24-hour period.

Figures and Tables from this paper

The Plasma Bioavailability of Coenzyme Q10 Absorbed from the Gut and the Oral Mucosa
TLDR
It is concluded that the intestinal absorption of CoQ10 is highly variable and is independent of the molecular form administered, and liposomes are not an effective vehicle for the oral administration of Coq10, and as such did not improve the oral mucosal/sublingual absorption and bioavailability of the molecule.
Coenzyme Q10 oral bioavailability: effect of formulation type
TLDR
The different types of Q10 drug delivery systems (DDS) ranging from the simple oily dispersions to the nanotechnology-oriented systems such as nanocrystals, self-nanoemulsifiedDrug delivery systems, etc. to overcome the solubility issue were discussed.
Relative Bioavailability of Coenzyme Q10 in Emulsion and Liposome Formulations
TLDR
Clinicians and patients are suggested to consider bioavailability issue a primary concern when choosing a CoQ10 product, especially when very high plasma level is required such as in the treatment of heart failure and Parkinson's disease.
Bioavailability and Sustained Plasma Concentrations of CoQ10 in Healthy Volunteers by a Novel Oral Timed-Release Preparation
TLDR
Results show that Miniactives® technology can release CoQ10 to allow high constant blood concentrations without a sharp decrease, which may be the first step of evidence for a potential new antioxidative treatment in human chronic diseases deserving high Coq10 levels.
Coenzyme Q10: Clinical Update and Bioavailability
TLDR
A review of clinical efficacy trials using CoQ10 is provided and recent advances in formulation technology to improve the bioavailability of CoQ 10 are described to help clinicians and consumers make informed decisions.
Enhanced Oral Bioavailability of β-Caryophyllene in Healthy Subjects Using the VESIsorb® Formulation Technology, a Novel Self-Emulsifying Drug Delivery System (SEDDS)
TLDR
BCP-SEDDS offers a well-tolerated and effective oral delivery system to significantly enhance the oral bioavailability of BCP in humans and gender analysis revealed that there is no significant difference between men and women for both the investigated formulations and all investigated PK endpoints.
Strategies for oral delivery and mitochondrial targeting of CoQ10
TLDR
The review summaries the current research on CoQ10 bioavailability and highlights the headways to obtain a satisfactory intracellular and targeted mitochondrial delivery.
A Novel Self-Emulsifying Drug Delivery System (SEDDS) Based on VESIsorb® Formulation Technology Improving the Oral Bioavailability of Cannabidiol in Healthy Subjects
TLDR
Overall, SEDDS-CBD showed a significant improvement for all determined pharmacokinetic parameters: increased CBD plasma values (Cmax), favorably enhanced bioavailability (AUC) and fast absorption (Tmax).
The therapeutic efficacy of water-soluble coenzyme Q10 in an experimental model of tacrolimus-induced diabetes mellitus
TLDR
In vitro studies showed that Co Q10-L and CoQ10-W both improved cell viability and reduced ROS production in TAC-treated islet cells to a similar extent, and in vitro studies revealed that CoQ 10-W has better therapeutic efficacy than CoQ8-L in T AC-induced DM.
Therapeutic use of coenzyme Q10 and coenzyme Q10-related compounds and formulations
TLDR
Oral CoQ10 is a viable antioxidant strategy in many diseases, providing a significant to mild symptomatic benefit and Idebenone and MitoQ are promising substitutive Coq10-related drugs which are well tolerated and safe.

Comparison of the relative bioavailability of different coenzyme Q10 formulations with a novel solubilizate (Solu™ Q10)
TLDR
Solubilizates were clearly superior to oily dispersions and crystalline CoQ10 in their overall bioavailability, with the best absorption characteristics seen for the novel Solu™ Q10 solubilIZate.
Relative Bioavailability of Two Forms of a Novel Water-Soluble Coenzyme Q10
TLDR
The study revealed that the absorption and bioavailability of CoQ10 in the novel formulations are significantly increased, probably due to the enhanced water solubility.

TLDR
The data from both trials show that Q-Gel, the new solubilized form of CoQ10, is vastly superior to typical commercially available preparations of Co Q10, which means much lower doses of Q- Gel will be required to rapidly reach and maintain adequate blood CoQ 10 values than with any of the other currently available products.
Increase of bioavailability of coenzyme Q(10) and vitamin E.
TLDR
TheBioavailability of CoQ(10) increased fivefold after administration of the NanoSolve formulation, and the bioavailability of vitamin E was enhanced 10-fold both compared to the pure substances.
A new Coenzyme Q10 tablet-grade formulation (all-Q) is bioequivalent to Q-Gel and both have better bioavailability properties than Q-SorB.
TLDR
The kinetic profiles of all CoQ10 preparations revealed a one-peak plasma concentration-time course, and highest Cmax values were seen after Q-Gel application, whereas time to Cmax was nearly identical across all treatments.
Coenzyme Q10: Absorption, tissue uptake, metabolism and pharmacokinetics
TLDR
Animal data show that CoQ10 in large doses is taken up by all tissues including heart and brain mitochondria, which has implications for therapeutic applications in human diseases and there is evidence for its beneficial effect in cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases.
Comparison of uptake between PureSorb-Q40 and regular hydrophobic coenzyme Q10 in rats and humans after single oral intake.
TLDR
PureSorb-Q40 (P40) was developed to improve CoQ10 processability and absorption when taken without food, and the present study compared the effects of food on absorption between P40 and conventional lipid-soluble CoQ 10 in rats and humans.
