Heat Sensitive Shipping Policy
Designs for Health has certain items that are sensitive to higher temperatures and higher humidity levels, and therefore may require shipping in a cool environment depending on your location and time of year. For example, we recommend that probiotics ship year-round with a cooler bag and cold packs. Cold packs may melt during shipping which should not affect product integrity, as they take a long time to melt, and because probiotics are manufactured with overages that ensure label potency when exposed to higher temperatures.
It is also recommended that PaleoBars? and all softgel products ship with a cooler bag and cold packs if the temperatures are expected to exceed 80?F for a prolonged period of time during transit. These items are subject to special shipping procedures due to their sensitive nature. In order to maintain this policy, our customer service department monitors the weather and transit time daily.
We endeavor to deliver all orders, including heat-sensitive items, within one to three business days. Expedited and guaranteed shipping services are available at an additional cost. Depending on the day of order and ship-to address, we may not be able to ship heat-sensitive orders until the following Monday to avoid orders held in transit over the weekend. For orders that combine heat-sensitive and non-heat-sensitive items, customers may elect to have their order ship in its entirety on Monday, or choose to split their order and have only their heat-sensitive products ship on Monday. If the customer elects to split their order, Designs for Health?s regular shipping policies will apply to each shipment?s value.
At our discretion, Designs for Health will add a cooler bag (s) to your order to ensure product potency and integrity.

Study results show peak
absorption of Q-Avail? is 8 times greater than dry powder and two times
greater than its toughest competition when compared to dry powder,
liposomal, nanoparticle, and partial dissolved in oil formulations.
Q-Avail? underwent other clinical trials as well including a 36-hour
peak absorption study to determine the total amount of CoQ10 absorbed
and a 28-day steady state study to determine the amount of CoQ10 in the
blood plasma available for use by the body cells. In these studies,
Q-Avail? was compared to a standard dry powder CoQ10 product.
results of the 36-hour absorption study showed that Q-Avail? had a
total absorption of 11.65% compared to dry powder having an absorption
of 1.32%, which makes Q-Avail ? 783% more absorbable than dry powder.
The results of the 28-day steady state study showed that at the end of
28 days there were 8989 ug/ml of Q-Avail? available for use by the
cells, compared to 1623 ug/ml of dry powder CoQ10. This makes Q-Avail?
441% more bioavailable than dry powder CoQ10.
Q?Avail? is designed for optimal absorption, stability and
cost-efficiency. Oral supplementation with CoQ10 is often desired to
improve immune function, mitochondrial metabolism and energy production
in the support of fatigue-related disorders, the enhancement of
athletic performance, periodontal problems and the support of
cardiomyopathy and neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson?s.
CoQ10 has also been demonstrated to be an effective antioxidant,
reducing lipid peroxidation.
