LIPIDS AND FAT-SOLUBLE SUBSTANCES
Lipids and fat-soluble substances (such as coenzyme Q10) are lighter than water and for this reason float to the surface of both water liquids and gastric juices. These compounds due to hydrophobic interactions are located close to each other and as a result of agglomeration or coagulation form larger structures. This explains the very low bioavailability of fat-soluble substances (approximately 25%). For the consumer, this means that most of the fat-soluble substances absorbed with food additives, such as fat-soluble coenzyme Q10 capsules (especially liquid forms of Q10 based on water), it removes from the body unused.
