Citrus Solu-Q™, provided by Douglas Laboratories®,
is a Caplique™ containing natural coenzyme Q10 in
a patented, naturally self-assembling nano-colloid
system for enhanced absorption.
Coenzyme Q10 is a fat soluble nutrient that is poorly
soluble in water and is not well absorbed when taken
orally. Coenzyme Q10 is an important rate-limiting
nutrient that is a cofactor in the mitochondrial
electron transport chain, the biochemical pathway in
cellular respiration from which adenosine
triphosphate (ATP) and metabolic energy is derived.
Since nearly all cellular activities are dependent upon
energy, coenzyme Q10 is essential for the health of
all human tissues and organs.
Given the strength of the science that has been emerging
for the use of supplemental CoQ10, it is important to
ensure that optimal CoQ10 levels are achieved in the
blood following supplementation. Citrus Solu-Q™ is
unique among coenzyme Q10 products as it utilizes the
patented VESIsorb® technology to deliver coenzyme
Q10. When mixed with an aqueous system, this
patented technology results in the formation of a nanocolloid
containing solubilized CoQ10. This association
colloid delivery system contains a highly uniform
distribution of droplets that are less than 100 nm in
diameter. The size and structure of these droplets allow
for enhanced solubility and absorption of coenzyme
Q10. This image represents the structure of a
nano-colloid droplet which consists of a monolayer with
the coenzyme Q10 contained within the core. The
formation of the colloidal system upon contact with an
(such as the lumen of
the intestine) enables
the solubilized CoQ10 to
more easily diffuse
unstirred water layer that is present between the
enterocyte and the lumen of the intestine. One
can demonstrate the enhanced solubility of the CoQ10
contained in Citrus Solu-Q™ by placing a capsule in
warm water. Once the capsule opens, the contents can
be easily mixed with the water, resulting in the
formation of the association colloid. There is no
separation of oil and water phases as is typical with
more traditional CoQ10 delivery systems.
In a clinical study in humans, supplementation
with CoQ10 utilizing the patented VESIsorb®
technology resulted in greater absorption compared
with other CoQ10 products.
Citrus Solu-Q™ may be a useful dietary adjunct for
individuals wishing to supplement their diets with a
highly absorbable form of CoQ10.
