LOS ANGELES, CA, October 17, 2007–Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.® (SGTI) is pleased to introduce CoQH-CF™, a crystal-free, patent pending soft gel formulation using Kaneka QH™—a new dietary ingredient using the ubiquinol form of coenzyme Q10. This new product offering from SGTI provides a completely solubilized form of reduced CoQ10 in a soft gelatin delivery system. The unique formula dissolves the crystals that are formed when CoQ10 is produced commercially, and prevents the solution from recrystallizing. The official product launch will take place at SupplySide West in Las Vegas.
While CoQ10 is necessary for cellular energy production, the body must first convert CoQ10 (ubiquinone) to its reduced form, ubiquinol. Elevated oxidative stress disorders and age-related diseases diminish the levels of ubiquinol and ubiquinone in the body. Kaneka developed a patented and stable form of ubiquinol, Kaneka QH™. Because ubiquinol is highly oxidative, a novel soft gelatin delivery system was developed by SGTI. Using our crystal-free technology to protect the QH™ from being exposed to air, CoQH-CF™ provides an efficient way to boost CoQ10 levels in those whose ability to produce and/or convert it has been hindered by aging or disease.
Soft Gel Technologies, Inc.® will host Andrew Myers, N.D. as a speaker at the SupplySide West trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Thursday, November 8th at 2:30 p.m. His talk is being held in VendorWorks Room 18073 on the exhibit hall floor of the Sands Expo and Convention Center. Dr. Myers is a naturopathic physician with nearly 20 years of experience developing new nutritional products. He currently serves as the President and Chief Science Officer of NutraGenetics, and is the author of Simple Health Value. In his VendorWorks presentation entitled, “CoQH-CF™—A Targeted Antioxidant Solution for Oxidative Stress,” Dr. Myers will discuss the reduced form of coenzyme Q10 and its benefits. Show attendees are encouraged to hear this new product presentation.
SGTI President, Ron Udell, remarked, “SupplySide West is a perfect venue for us to reach our customers and launch new, unique products. We invest in the educational opportunities at this trade show, because it helps foster understanding and generates interest in branded, researched ingredients that we feel are beneficial for specific health conditions.” Mr. Udell also commented, “CoQH-CF™ is a valuable addition to the portfolio of dietary supplements available exclusively from SGTI.”
