Today’s topic:
CoQ10 Softgels Better than Tablets

Dietary supplements are available that deliver CoQ10 in several different ways. The most common means are via tablets, hardshell powder-filled capsules or soft-shelled capsules that enclose CoQ10 in a suspension of oil. Human research has shown that CoQ10 is absorbed most efficiently and rapidly when consumed suspended within a soft-shelled capsule. Since CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrient, taking it in an oil matrix or with a meal containing fat is highly beneficial. Thus, when considering supplemental forms of CoQ10 “softgels” are an excellent choice.
