The relative bioavailability of typical commercially available forms of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) was compared with that of Q-Gel, a new solubilized form of CoQ10, in human subjects in two separate trials. In the first, standard softgel capsules containing CoQ10 suspension in oil, powder-filled hardshell capsules and powder-based tablets were tested along with Q-Gel using a daily dosage of 120 mg for three weeks. The baseline plasma CoQ10 values were all very tight (0.50-0.52 microgram/mL) and after… 

Bioavailability Assessment of Oral Coenzyme Q10 Formulations in Dogs

The present investigation demonstrates that soft gelatin capsules containing water-miscible CoQ10 formulations B (Q-Gel®) and C (Nol™) are superior to powder-filled formulations with regard to their biopharmaceutical characteristics.

Relative bioavailability comparison of different coenzyme Q10 formulations with a novel delivery system.

The data presented suggests that colloidal-Q10 improves the enteral absorption and the bioavailability of CoQ10 in humans.

Relative Bioavailability of Two Forms of a Novel Water-Soluble Coenzyme Q10

The study revealed that the absorption and bioavailability of CoQ10 in the novel formulations are significantly increased, probably due to the enhanced water solubility.

Relative Bioavailability and Antioxidant Potential of Two Coenzyme Q10 Preparations

The enhanced bioavailability of the BT product might be due to its predominantly reduced, hydrophilic membrane-complex form.

Similar therapeutic serum levels attained with emulsified and oil-based preparations of coenzyme Q10.

Administration of either a soy oil suspension or a complex emulsion of CoQ10 increases serum levels to the therapeutic range within 1 week, and there was no change in any of the serum lipids following the 7 days treatment.

Coenzyme Q10 oral bioavailability: effect of formulation type

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.

Pharmacokinetic Comparison of a Generic Coenzyme Q10 Solubilizate and a Formulation with Soybean Phytosterols

The combined CoQ10 and phytosterol formulation, SterolQ10, showed bioequivalence to the generic Coq10 following a single CoQ 10 dose, and demonstrated comparable bioavailability following multiple dose administration.
