Wednesday’s Ask Dr. Walt — Nano CoQ10

Dear Dr. Walt,

What is “nano” CoQ10? Is it better than other CoQ10 formulations?

—Taking Q10 in Texas

Dear Texan,

Nano formulations of CoQ10 are made by microencapsulating tiny amounts of CoQ10 in various substances which supposedly make CoQ10 more dispersible in water and enhance its absorption.

According to the experts at, “Unfortunately, the evidence supporting these nano formulations is not strong and is based on small, company-funded studies—some of which do not appear to have been published.”

So at this time, I cannot recommend this or any other specialty formulation of CoQ10.
