Ubiquinone CoQ10 is Pharma Nord’s Bio-Quinone Active Q10 capsule, containing coenzyme Q10 in the form of ubiquinone in its natural identical form. This unique preparation delivers coenzyme Q10 in the active formula that is present in over 90 scientific studies to provide a consistently high level of bioavailability.
Coenzyme Q10 is essential for the normal functioning of all tissues due to its role in the cellular energy production process. Both heart and skeletal muscles have the highest energy requirements of all bodily tissues, and are particularly reliant on adequate Q10 as a result.
Pharma Nord has spent more than 25 years developing and optimizing Bio-Quinone Q10 for the sole purpose of producing a coenzyme Q10 preparation which scientifically can document its superior bioavailability and quality - thereby earning its status as the reference product for scientific studies.
Pharma Nord's Q10 is the reference product for the International Coenzyme Q10 Association
The International Coenzyme Q10 Association (ICQA) is the leading association for Coenzyme Q10 research worldwide. The ICQA's mission is to promote basic and applied research into the preventive and therapeutic effects of Coenzyme Q10 supplementation and adjuvant therapy. The ICQA conferences are an important venue for the dissemination of the outcomes of research into the effects of Coenzyme Q10 on cellular bio-energetics, antioxidant defense, endothelial function, and inflammation.
What is Coenzyme Q10?
Coenzyme Q10 occurs naturally within every cell in the human body, we cannot live without it. It is a vitamin-like substance which is found in our mitochondria (structures within cells responsible for energy production). It is also important as an antioxidant, associated with various health benefits.
Approximately three quarters of the body’s Q10 is made within the liver. You can obtain small amounts of coQ10 from food. Our Q10 levels peak between the ages of 20 and 25. As the body’s ability to manufacture/absorb Q10 declines with age, our levels of Q10 will also decline. Dietary supplementation can help to maintain optimal levels of coenzyme Q10 within the body.
The many names of coenzyme Q10
One can easily get confused by the many names Q10 can appear under in the literature. Here is a selection of different names for coenzyme Q10 in the form of ubiquinone: Ubiqinone - Ubidecarenone - Myoquinone - Myoqinon - Bio-Qinone - Normal Q10 - Oxidized Q10 - The original Q10 - Q - QX - CoQ - CoQ10 - 2,3-dimethoxy-5-methyl-6-decaprenyl-1,4-benzoquinone.
100% Natural Q10
Bio-Quinone Active Q10 Gold contains 100% natural Q10.
The raw material is produced by specialized yeast cells and is identical to the coenzyme Q10 produced by the body. The product does not contain any yeast components or impurities of unknown nature. The raw material is completely free of harmful cis-isomers, often found in cheap synthetic Q10 raw materials of low quality. All raw materials used in the Bio-Quinone Active Q10 supplement undergo an extensive quality control before production.
Using a special manufacturing technique the small Q10 crystals completely dissolve at body temperature. It is this complete solution of Q10, a high quality raw material and manufacturing according to the pharmaceutical and the GMP protocol. This is the reason that Bio-Quinone Active Q10 supplement has achieved such good bioavailability of the active substance, and success in scientific studies.
Pharma Nord Patented Process
Q10 is a fat-soluble substance which is difficult for the body to absorb. However, thanks to a highly specialized manufacturing process where Q10 is suspended in an oil matrix and exposed to a patented heating process, the Q10 crystals are able to dissolve entirely into single molecules at normal body temperature. This is the reason why Bio-Quinone Active Q10 supplement has achieved such good bioavailability of the active substance.
|Unprocessed Q10, which has not been subjected to any pre-treatment, has a crystal form that hinders effective absorption.||An inferior preparation is more like a mixture of Q10 crystals and oil, resulting in poor bioavailability of the active Q10.||A special heat process that transforms the molecular structure of Q10 from rough crystals to a snow-flake like shape.||At body temperature, the snow-flake Q10 dissolves, thus forming a uniform (homogeneous) mixture that the body can easily absorb.|
Bioavailability: It matters!
Bioavailability is the proportion of substance that reaches the systemic blood circulation after oral consumption and access the site of action. Bio-Quinone uses a patented method to release crystal structure Q10. As a result, Bio-Quinone was selected for the prestigious KiSel-10 and Q-SYMBIO trials.
Optimal Oil Formulation
Pharma Nord Q10 supplements are shown to raise blood levels of coenzyme Q10 in human subjects, with extensive supporting documentation.
Several clinical trials have shown that the Bio-Quinone patented formulation delivers superior bioavailability.

A Q10 preparation that cannot be absorbed in the body is a waste of money. But why is there such a big difference in absorption and what does it take to ensure good absorption of Q10? Let us try and find the answers.
In a study from 2019, six different Q10 formulations were examined with quite astounding results. Even though the same Q10 raw material was used in all preparations, the absorption of Q10 showed huge variation and turned out to be highly dependent on how each preparation was produced and the type of oil used as a carrier substance. In the worst case, virtually none of the Q10 raw material in the capsule was absorbed in the body.
An analysis under a microscope shows significant differences in the structure of the Q10 crystals. These differences explain why some Q10 preparations are absorbed better than others.
Study Documents 3-10 Times Better Absorption
Leading clinical researchers have compared the absorption of six different Q10 preparations. Five of the test preparations contained Q10 in different oil mixtures in soft-gel capsules; one test preparation consisted of finely ground Q10 powder in a hard-gel capsule. One preparation stood out in the absorption study: "Myoqinon manufactured by Pharma Nord had a 3-10 times better absorption than any of the other five Q10 preparations."
Myoqinon is the pharmaceutical version of the original Q10 product, Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold, introduced by Pharma Nord in 1991 and which has been used in many clinical studies.
The graph shows absorption levels for the six Q10 preparations from the human clinical trial, all of which contained the ubiquinone form.
