If you take a statin, and are concerned about side effects, then you must take this supplement.
Coenzyme Q10 is also known as ubiquinol, Vitamin D, ubiquinone, Coenzyme Q, and even CoQ10 for short.
This vitamin plays an important role in how our bodies convert food to energy.
What exactly does Coenzyme Q10 do?
CoQ10 is a powerful anti-oxidant that helps convert food to energy.
So organs that use a lot of energy, such as the heart, the liver, and the kidneys need and use a lot of coenzyme Q10.
Relationship between coenzyme q10 and heart disease
In the early 1970s, it was shown that CoQ10 is lower than normal in patients with heart disease. The exact reason for this remains unknown.
Regardless of whether the body uses more or makes less, it's clear that there is a deficiency of CoQ10 in heart disease, and supplements make a great deal of sense.
In fact, CoQ10 is frequently prescribed by cardiologists in Japan for the treatment of congestive heart failure.
Statins block natural CoQ10 production
When healthy, our bodies make all of the coenzyme Q 10 that we need. So healthy people don't need CoQ10.
However, patients who take statins for their cholesterol have lower blood levels of CoQ10.
It is known that the statins interfere with the body's ability to produce Coenzyme Q 10.
So for heart disease patients taking statins to reduce cholesterol, taking a CoQ10 supplement makes a great deal of sense.
Problem: CoQ10 Absorption is poor
What is absorption? Simply put, it is the process through which vitamins, minerals, proteins, and other nutrients get from the stomach and intestines into the bloodstream.
CoQ10 is best absorbed when taken with an oily, fatty meal.
This is where many CoQ10 supplements fail.
Many CoQ10 supplements are simply CoQ10 stuffed into a simple capsule. It is likely that very little of the CoQ10 in that capsule will be absorbed from that cheap capsule.
Taking cheap CoQ10 supplements with a fatty meal is not a great idea, since you should probably not be eating fatty meals in the first place!
Our product is different
We're pleased to offer a much better solution to the CoQ10 absorption problem.
Our Coenzyme Q10 Ultra formulation from Douglas Labs contains 200 mg CoQ10 in a lecithin base.
Since lecithin is a natural, healthy fat, it ensures that the coenzyme q10 is absorbed, resulting in more CoQ10 entering your circulation where it is needed.
It's like taking your coenzyme q10 supplement along with a fatty meal, but without the meal!
If you're concerned about heart disease, or if you're currently taking a prescription statin medicine to lower your cholesterol, we urge you to start taking a coenzyme Q10 supplement right away.
Sure, you can find supermarket brands. But it's unlikely they are properly formulated to ensure adequate absorption of coenzyme Q10.
At only ~$2 a soft gel, you're getting an excellent coenzyme Q10 supplement at a very affordable price.
So, order your Ultra Coenzyme Q 10 today!
P.S. We're offering $5 Shipping AND a free Speed Jump Rope with every order (while supplies last)...but only for a very limited time!
