All of our Q-Gel® CoQ10 is produced via the fermentation process using a 100% natural yeast food source. All CoQ10 is obtained either by 100% fermentation thereby guaranteeing 100% Natural CoQ10 (the type we use in Q-Gel®) -- or the cheaper synthetic alternative which involves partial fermentation and then synthesis using "solanesol" a chemical extracted from the tobacco leaf, (we do NOT use this type!).
Active Q is the most readily available form of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Until recently the only formulation of CoQ10 available was ubiquinone, the oxidized form of CoQ10. However, most of the CoQ10 in our bodies is in the form of ubiquinol, the “active” antioxidant form of CoQ10. Now that the problems of stability associated with the production of the ubiquinol form of CoQ10 have been solved, ubiquinol in soft gels is as available. This highly absorbable ubiquinol is now available in the new Bio-Sorb® ActiveQ® softgels from Tishcon Corporation.
Tishcon's Bioenhanced Liposomal Liquid Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) has a high bioavailability and is particularly useful to people who have trouble swallowing pills.
