Bio-Q-Sorb® ActiveQ® is different – it is Kaneka Ubiquinol Coq10 that is stabilized with Tishcon’s patented process to guarantee 100% Ubiquinol content! So if you want the most potent Ubiquinol Q10 available, you want the 100% Ubiquinol Coenzyme Q10 – you want Bio-Q-Sorb® ActiveQ®
Most commercially available CoQ10 uses Ubiquinone — the fully oxidized form of Coenzyme Q10. However, research, (in animals and humans), has shown Ubiquinol to be absorbed better than Ubiquinone in fact, more than 90% of the circulating CoQ10 in our body is present as Ubiquinol. ActiveQ® uses Ubiquinol the “active” antioxidant form of Coenzyme Q10 and is now available in a new 100mg per softgel dosage.
Why weren’t Ubiquinol soft gels as available as the Ubiquinone form of CoQ10 in a soft gel? The problem was stability and it was only recently solved by Kaneka Corp of Japan. That breakthrough solution, Kaneka Ubiquinol Ubiquinol, is now utilized in the new Bio QSorb® ActiveQ® from Tishcon Corp in the new, stronger 100mg per softgel dosage size.

Statin drugs have become very popular and are being widely prescribed in recent years to lower high blood cholesterol and thus reduce the risk for heart disease. These drugs block cholesterol production in the body by inhibiting the enzyme called HMG-CoA reductase in the early steps of its synthesis in the mevalonate pathway. This same biosynthetic pathway is also shared by CoQ10. Therefore, one unfortunate consequence of statin drugs is the unintentional inhibition of CoQ10 synthesis. Thus, in the long run, statin drugs could predispose the patients to heart disease by lowering their CoQ10 status, the very condition that these drugs are intended to prevent.
Dr. Emile Bliznakov, an authority on CoQ10, published a scholarly review on the interaction between statin drugs and CoQ10 (Bliznakov and Wilkins, 1998). He wrote the best-selling book “The Miracle Nutrient Coenzyme Q10” years ago and it is still being hailed as the best reference book on CoQ10 (Bliznakov, 1987).
The reduction of CoQ10 levels might be associated with myopathy, a rare adverse effect associated with statin drugs. This metabolic myopathy is related to ubiquinone (CoQ10) deficiency in muscle cell mitochondria, disturbing normal cellular respiration and causing adverse effects such as rhabdomyolysis, exercise intolerance, and recurrent myoglobinuria. (DiMuro S., Exercise intolerance and the mitochondrial respiratory chain. Ital J Neurol Sci. Dec. 1999;20(6):387-393).
It is important to note that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation does not interfere with the very important cholesterol-lowering effect of statin drugs such as Lipitor® and Zocor®. Therefore, if you are taking a statin drug, (especially for an extended period of time), you may want to consider discussing CoQ10 supplementation with your health care professional.
The bottom line is that the popular and widely prescribed cholesterol lowering drugs called “Statins” can block the synthesis of Coenzyme Q10 in the body which may lead to sub-optimal CoQ10 levels. Supplementation with Q-Gel CoQ-10 is a prudent approach when undergoing “statin” therapy.
