AquaCelle® - Q10

Pharmako Biotechnologies

AquaCelle®- CoQ10 is a self-emulsifying delivery system. Human pharmacokinetic studies show the combination of AquaCelle® and coenzyme-Q10 increases the absorption of coenzyme-Q10 by nearly fourfold and removes the need to be taken with food. AquaCelle®- CoQ10 has been demonstrated through human pharmacokinetics to match or exceed ubiquinol for absorption into blood plasma. Compared to ubiquinol it is less expensive, and more stable. AquaCelle®-CoQ10 is available in 3 forms, all pharmacokinetically studied, allowing multiple dosage formats including: softgels, hard capsules, gels, and liquids.

What the judges said: The bioavailability boost that provided differentiation from other CoQ10 ingredients provided an edge in this crowded field.

Reducose®

Phynova Group

Maintaining healthy blood glucose levels is important for healthy aging for several reasons including better metabolic health, cardiovascular health, cognitive functioning, and improved body composition. Reducose® is a water extract of white mulberry leaves, a plant that has been used for centuries around the world as a food and medicine. Reducose® can be added in small quantities to foods and drinks or taken as a supplement and reduces the impact of sugars and high-glycaemic carbohydrates on the body. It does this by reducing the breakdown of sugars and carbohydrates, resulting in 40% lower blood sugar levels after eating.
