Products & Services | A.R.C.O.-Chemie GmbH


As one of Europe’s leaders in soft gel encapsulation, A.R.C.O.® – Chemie GmbH (ARCO®) has developed a range of soft gelatin capsules for delivery of drugs, dietetic products and nutritional supplements in the therapeutic area of Energy Health.

ARCO Energy Health products include well-established organic extracts and compounds from the Standard Range as well as ARCO Supreme Products, which use superior formulations with high quality branded ingredients, supported by scientific evidence.

Cell Energy Supreme Product

From the premium Supreme Products range of soft gel capsules, ARCO offers Cell Energy Capsules containing Ubiquinol, a superior refined form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). This coenzyme is essential to the body’s natural production of cellular energy and provides powerful antioxidant protection to cells. Without it, the body cannot sustain energy.

Supreme Product Cell Energy is based on KanekaQH™ Ubiquinol, a reduced and active antioxidant form of CoQ10. Developed in 2006, KanekaQH™ is a unique supplemental form of bio-identical Ubiquinol manufactured exclusively by Japan’s Kaneka Corporation. Ubiquinol advances on previous ubiquinone forms of CoQ10 used in supplements, since the body converts CoQ10 as Ubiquinol, which thus forms a more bioavailable form of the active ingredient.

Soft gel capsule provides an ideal delivery form for Ubiquinol, both for dosage form and also for its properties in protecting this highly sensitive active ingredient against oxygen and light.

ARCO Supreme Product Cell Energy Capsules have their energy boosting characteristics enhanced with Vitamins B5, B6 and B12, each of which is established by European Food Safety Authority statements as helping to reduce fatigue and contribute to energy metabolism.

The product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
