With nearly a century of experience and deep knowledge of unique industrial equipment and processes, Indena pioneered and developed Phytosome®, a proprietary 100% food-grade biomimetic delivery system that optimizes bioabsorption and pharmacokinetic profile of selected botanical ingredients by formulating them with a dietary ingredient (lecithin).
The latest news from Indena at Vitafoods 2019 are about sports nutrition and the important role which can play in that field Indena’s Ubiqsome®, the most innovative formulation of Coenzyme Q10. Ubiqsome® is the latest release in Indena long tradition of Phytosome®, successful and consolidated delivery system to optimize natural compounds bioavailability. Indena Ubiqsome® is an innovative bioavailable formulation of Coenzyme Q10, industrially available and standardized to contain not less than 20% of CoQ10.
Coenzyme Q10 plays a central role in generation and regulation of cell bioenergy, being involved in transferring of electrons within the mitochondrial oxidative respiratory chain and hence, ATP production, and has reported to have antioxidant and beneficial effects in optimizing human health and well-being. Endogenous levels of coenzyme Q10 are subject to decline for several reasons related with age, unhealthy conditions and after intense physical stress such as sport activity.
Indena’s Ubiqsome®, thanks to the 100% food-grade Phytosome® delivery system, allows to optimize coenzyme Q10 levels in both human plasma and muscles, thus overcoming the bioavailability issue and making available on the market an ingredient able to exploit the great potential of such natural compound.
