- Mar 4 12:17 AMhi Pat,
I did a lot of searching about this CoQ10 absorption thing, and I
think you're right.
What I found was that oral supplementation with powdered form of
CoQ10, like the capsules we buy, only is absorbed to about 3%...so
you're not getting much! All these years of giving it to my guys
(and myself!) and it's probably not been helping at all? yikes!
Maybe someone else can offer some insight too?
Here's a few sites with info that I found. I hope the links come out
okay. I made tinyurl links to the ones that were long.

If anyone else has any info on this, I'd really like to see it. If
this is true, that they're not absorbing hardly any of the powder
form, then I'm going to change them over to one of these "liquid"
ones. This is a real bummer, 'cause the powder ones are so easy to
give...open the capsule and empty in the food, zip-zip and your
done! And they don't taste bad. The stuff in the liqui-gels is icky
thick stuff that is so hard to squeeze out, and it tastes bad. It
tastes like the way motor oil smells! At least the one I tried
years ago was like that. It was Jarrow Q-sorb and it was like super-
duper thick and you could hardly squeeze it out of the liqui-gel.
That's why I switched over to the powder ones... bad move I guess.
Anyway... other opinions on this are very welcomed.

ones you can't open.
