Douglas Laboratories Citrus Solu-Q
Citrus Solu-Q™ is a vegetarian Caplique® containing natural coenzyme Q10 in a patented, self-assembling nano-colloid delivery system for enhanced absorption. When mixed with an aqueous phase, this formula, based on proprietary technology, results in the spontaneous formation of a nano-colloidal solubilized CoQ10. This colloidal delivery system contains a highly uniform distribution of droplets that are typically less than 100 nm in diameter, and allows for enhanced absorption of coenzyme Q10.
Each serving contains:
Vitamin E (as d-alpha-tocopheryl) - 9 IU
Natural Coenzyme Q10 - 100 mg
Other ingredients: Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (capsule), medium chain triglycerides, polysorbate 80, polyglycerol fatty acid esters, citrus oil extract (Citrus sinensis, peel) and titanium dioxide.

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, especially the heart. 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 nano-colloid 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.
