Bioavailability, CoQ10 and MicroActive® CoQ10 for Your Dental Health
Have you heard of the term bioavailability? Do you know what it means? How about Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)? Or MicroActive® CoQ10? These terms may seem a bit technical, but, when it comes to your dental health, it’s important to know what they are and how they benefit you and your mouth.
Bioavailability is a term often used when it comes to talking about drugs or nutrients. The simplest definition is that bioavailability is the ease with which a drug or nutrient can make its way into your body. For example, if a nutrient has high bioavailability it can be easily digested and absorbed by the body. You can imagine that you would like the vitamins you take to have a high bioavailability so that you are receiving the maximum benefits. But this may not always be the case.
In a previous blog, you read how CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q10) is an enzyme that partners with other enzymes in your body to produce particular reactions. CoQ10 helps your cells and body with energy production and antioxidant protection.
When it comes to your dental health, gum disease, one of the most prevalent dental problem that people face, is caused by the accumulation of plaque which then infects the gums. CoQ10 with its antioxidant protection can help fight bacteria and deter gum disease. Additionally, it can increase the immune activity level in your gums, also helping to fight gum disease.
But, not all CoQ10 is created equal. This is where bioavailability and MicroActive® CoQ10 becomes important.
CoQ10 is a fat-soluble ingredient meaning that it is not soluble in water. With the saliva in your mouth containing 99% water, you can see how that would be an issue if you want to use CoQ10 to treat gum disease. Then you add more water while brushing your teeth. How can you get the CoQ10 to your gums if it’s not water-soluble? This is where MicroActive® CoQ10 has proven itself to be a more beneficial form of CoQ10. MicroActive® CoQ10 offers more bioavailability than regular CoQ10.
MicroActive® CoQ10 is produced by a patented process that adds a “carrier” to the CoQ10 so that it becomes water-soluble. This same process also breaks the CoQ10 into separate molecules, making them easy for your cells to absorb. Studies of patients using MicroActive® CoQ10 to combat gum disease showed significant improvement.
So where are you going to find CoQ10 with excellent bioavailability? MicroActive® CoQ10 is an ingredient in Perfect Smile Oral Care products. In studies of patients who took MicroActive® CoQ10, it was found that patients doubled their CoQ10 levels. Be sure to order your Perfect Smile Oral Care products today so you can be receiving the maximum benefits of CoQ10 when it comes to your oral health.
