OBSOLETE Q-Avail VS 100mg (Formally Q-Avail Nano) - Our highest potency CoQ10 product, delivering 100mg of ubiquinone in a single softgel.
Q-Avail™ VS utilizes a patented, nano-emulsion delivery system that allows us to pack 100mg of CoQ10 in an easy- to-swallow softgel.
How does nano-emulsion technology work?
This technology takes an insoluble, poorly-absorbed lipophilic (fat-dissolving) ingredient like CoQ10 and water solubilizes it. Once exposed to the aqueous environment in the stomach, the material self-assembles into tiny fluid droplets. These droplets are very similar to the nano-sized fluid droplets or micelles that the body normally manages to create when digesting high-fat foods in order to make them easier to absorb.
The softgels in Q-Avail™ VS are composed of millions of these tiny nano-sized colloidal droplets of solubilized CoQ10 that are easily absorbed in the GI tract, resulting in enhanced bioavailability.
Each softgel delivers 100mg of Coenyzme Q10 (ubiquinone) and provides the same research-driven superior absorption and bioavailability found with our current line of CoQ10 products.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a fat-soluble, high molecular weight compound produced by the body for the basic functioning of cells. It plays a central role in cellular energy metabolism that produces adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency for muscle contraction and other cellular processes. CoQ10 gets its name from the word ubiquitous because it is present everywhere in the human body.
CoQ10 Demystified... CoQ10 exists in both ubiquinone and ubiquinol forms. In mitochondrial electron transport system CoQ10 undergoes continuous reversible oxidation and reduction. It is converted to ubiquinol (reduced form) when it accepts electrons and to ubiquinone (oxidized form) when it donates electrons. In its ubiquinol form, CoQ10 functions as a potent antioxidant due to its ability to donate electrons, thus serving as a primary scavenger of free radicals.Ubiquinol is the only known lipid-soluble antioxidant present in all membranes that can be synthesized endogenously by animal and human cells with an enzymatic mechanism for regeneration from ubiquinone. Research indicates that ubiquinol is more efficient in inhibiting lipid peroxidation than alpha tocopherol, lycopene or beta-carotene.As an antioxidant, CoQ10 regulates membrane fluidity, recycles radical forms of vitamin C and E and protects membrane phospholipids against peroxidation (the process whereby free radicals "steal" electrons from the lipids in cell membranes which can result in cell damage).
Ubiquinone or Ubiquinol? Most healthy individuals are able to convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol. It has been shown that 80-95% of circulating CoQ10 following oral ingestion of a ubiquinone supplement is in the form of ubiquinol.
Why is CoQ10 Important? Low levels of CoQ10 (ubiquinone) have been documented in people experiencing various disease states including congestive heart failure, angina pectoris, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Parkinson's disease, cancer, periodontal disease, asthma, age-related macular degeneration, hyperthyroidism, HIV/AIDS, cerebellar ataxia. Plasma ubiquinol is decreased in patients with hyperlipidemia and liver disease.
Medications and CoQ10 Depletion CoQ10 is synthesized in the same pathway as cholesterol, and therefore also involves the HMG CoA reductase enzyme. CoQ10 production is negatively affected by use of statin drugs because they interfere with this enzyme by design. Research suggests that some cholesterol-lowering statin drugs decrease serum CoQ10 levels by as much as 40%. Other drugs (gemfibrozil, Adriamycin, beta blockers) have been found to decrease serum CoQ10.
Who Should Take CoQ10? Supplementation with CoQ10 has been shown in research studies to provide a wide range of health benefits and may help support the following:

Replaced a competitors product with this one. I am happy with the product. My husband and I both take 200 mg a day. I used to take statins and wanted to replace my CoQ10. Now I take for maintenance. CoQ10 is also supposed to help with blood pressure. I no longer need BP medication and want to maintain that.
