Still Searching For The Best
Let's get one thing straight, there is no one best CoQ10 supplement that will suit everyone.
Some may stick to ubiquinone (the oxidized form of CoQ10); others may prefer to switch over to ubiquinol (the reduced form).
Another group may find the nanoparticle CoQ10 delivery system best; but the 'followers' of the liposome system would attest that 'theirs' is second to none.
And what if you are a vegetarian? You seem to be at a loss as you couldn't find a 100% vegetarian CoQ10 supplement.
Fret not. I've listed the best CoQ10 products on this page to save you precious time looking for the needles in the Internet haystack!
Two Important CoQ10 Facts
One, the genuine natural "trans-isomer" CoQ10 is a very expensive nutrient; and two, CoQ10 is poorly absorbed by the body.
The key for bioavailability is in the delivery system (what is combined with it to maximize absorption). Thus the real issue is to improve the bioavailability of CoQ10 and this is a critical component when choosing an effective or the best CoQ10 supplementation.
Simply put, the higher the body's absorption of CoQ10, the lower the dosage you take.
The Best CoQ10 Ubiquinone for Vegetarian
Doctor's Best, High Absorption CoQ10, with BioPerine.
Some information about BioPerine …
BioPerine is a patented standardized extract containing 95% piperine, an extract obtained from the black pepper fruits.
Black pepper plants are cultivated in the damp, nutrient-rich soil regions of southern India. Harvested just prior to ripening, the delicate pepper berries are then sun dried to assure optimum maturity and quality.
BioPerine, clinically tested in the United States, has shown to significantly enhance the bioavailability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption (view graph below).
The Best CoQ10 Delivery Systems
NovaSOL micelle CoQ10 product is manufactured through AQUANOVA's patented advanced nano-technology. A study indicated that NovaSOL is absorbed up to four times faster than market leading products and un-micellized CoQ10. Solgar's Nutri-Nano CoQ10 3.1x (Ubiquinone) makes use of this nano-technology.
Jarrow QH Absorb is Kaneka QH Ubiquinol CoQ10 supplement that uses a natural proliposome lipid-soluble delivery system, which has been clinically shown in humans to increase CoQ10 levels up to 400% (3.2x) over baseline and is 3 to 4 times better absorbed than the regular powdered CoQ10 supplements.
Fish oil is a very effective delivery system for this ingredient. Although there are other CoQ10 fish oil supplements on the market that contain KanekaQH, Xtend-Life Omega-3/QH Ultra is certainly one of the best and gives you better value for money too!
Not only will it provide you with KanekaQH Ubiquinol, you'll be getting all the health benefits of Omega-3/DHA PLUS two other powerful antioxidants: natural astaxanthin and lycopene!

The Best Multi-Nutrient Supplement with CoQ10 Precursors
Extracted from “CoQ10, statins and a more effective way. Part 2"
by Warren Matthews
… CoQ10 is biosynthesized in the human body from L-tyrosine through a complex cascade of various precursors and co-factors. Some of these essential substances are vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, copper, selenium, zinc, L-methionine and various other trace elements.
There is scientific literature and data supporting these bio-synthesis processes. This enabled our Xtend-Life scientists to calculate what ingredients were needed to incorporate within our Total Balance formula to ensure that we gave the body all the 'tools' needed to produce adequate levels of CoQ10. They also had to examine various metabolic pathways at molecular level to ensure synergy with all other ingredients and maintain a balance.
NOTE: Relying on very high doses from supplementation under normal preventive circumstances, may risk the body losing this ability to absorb the CoQ10 precursors and concentrate on natural production.
