What is CoQ10?
Found everywhere throughout the body, Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10 for short, is a vitamin like nutrient that plays the role of both an antioxidant and a cellular energizer. Given the scientific name Ubiquinone after its discovery in 1958, CoQ10 plays a key role in every single biological function of the body.
What is Ubiquinol CoQ10?
More than 90% of the circulating CoQ10 in our body is present as Ubiquinol -- the “active” antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10. Research has shown the Ubiquinol form of CoQ10 to be absorbed better than the Ubiquinone form. However, not ALL Ubiquinol is created equal. See below!

What is Annatto Suspension?
Why is it added to the supplement?
Annatto Suspension is a natural coloring pigment extracted from annatto seeds that is suspended in either soy or sunower oil. We use sunower to avoid the more common soy and any potential soy allergies that it may cause. This is the same ingredient that is used as a food-coloring agent found in margarine, dairy products and baked goods but obviously in much smaller amounts!
Where is the product made?
This product has been manufactured in a certified cGMP U.S. facility in either New York or Maryland.
Do You Perform Product and Raw Material Testing?
Absolutely YES! Prior to manufacture, we test every single raw material active and inactive, to confirm the identity of each batch of raw material to be used in the finished product. This verified raw material is then lab tested for potency, microbiology, heavy metals, and residual solvents before any use in manufacturing. Finally, all finished products are tested to ensure that the potency is at least 100% of label claim, along with a second round of heavy metal and microbiological testing to make sure that the product is safe for human consumption.
Are there any allergens in this product?
There are NO allergens in this product. Is the capsule made from animal gelatin? Yes, these softgels are made with kosher & halal certified bovine (beef ) gelatin in order to ensure stability from the time of manufacture to the time they reach our customers.
What are Medium Chain Triglycerides?
Why are they added to the supplement?
Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are partially man-made fats, usually derived from coconut and/or palm kernel oils. Contrary to the notion that this ingredient may be bad for your health, medium chain triglyceride (MCT) consumption may, in fact, have a beneficial impact on weight management.
Clinical trial results suggest that MCT oil can be incorporated into a weight loss program without fear of adversely affecting metabolic risk factors. While, the amount of MCT’s found in this product are too small to help in any weight loss regimen, it is just enough to help absorb the ubiquinol CoQ10 your body needs.
What is Sunflower Lecithin?
Why is it added to the supplement?
Lecithin is a fat that is essential in the cells of the body. It is found naturally in many foods, including cauliflower, beans, most leafy veggies, egg yolks and soybeans. In this supplement it is used as an emulsifier / lubricant. We use sunflower lecithin to avoid the more common soy lecithin and any potential soy allergies that it may cause.
