ActiQuinol 10™

A superiorly stable powder form of Ubiquinol CoQ10 that allows for improvements in manufacturing and oral bioavailability.

CoQ10 supplements are being purchased by 32%1 of US consumers and is projected for steady growth in sales at 5.1%2 for 2019. Known for its abilities to support essential cellular processes of energy production in the mitochondria, US based CoQ10 product launch positioning has centered around heart health with 5943 products launched with this focus over the past five years. Many of these supplement products however do not contain the most beneficial form of CoQ10, Ubiquinol. Only 8% of the products launched from 2013-2018 contained this potent form of CoQ10.3 This creates a prime market opportunity for new CoQ10 supplement innovation with the addition of ActiQuinol 10. Allowing you to simplify your manufacturing processes while providing your customers with the most optimized form of CoQ10.
