Q10 Ubiquinone is known as Pharma Nord’s Bio-Quinone Q10. Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone) is a vitamin-like substance which plays a vital role in the body’s energy supply mechanism, acting alongside enzymes converting fats and sugars into energy. All body cells require a supply of Q10, with the heart and muscle cells having a particularly high demand.
This patented preparation delivers coenzyme Q10 in the active formula that has been documented in over 90 scientific studies to provide a consistently high level of bio-availability.
Why Pharma Nord Bio-Quinone Q10 Ubiquinone:
Coenzyme quinones occur in several chemical forms, with coenzyme Q10 being the only form found in human tissues.
The human body is able to synthesize (in the liver) a limited amount of coenzyme Q10, with the remainder being obtained from the diet. Rich sources of coenzyme Q10 include fish (mackerel, salmon, sardines) and nuts. Under normal circumstances, the body is able to maintain adequate levels of coenzyme Q10. However, coenzyme Q10 levels decrease with age, and are depleted by intense physical exercise or illness.
Coenzyme Q10 is an essential cofactor of enzymes involved in the energy production process. Coenzyme Q10 is stored in mitochondria, structures found within cells responsible for the generation of energy (in the form of a molecule called ATP). Tissues with a high-energy requirement (heart, liver, skeletal muscles) contain higher numbers of mitochondria within their cells.
Mitochondria illustration: Inside the mitochondria, energy is produced from nutrients in the food we eat. A Q10 deficiency may be one of the reasons why cells fail to produce energy. This, in turn, weakens the body’s ability to protect itself against illness and the onset of old age.

Pharma Nord ApS, Denmark.
There are up to 8 million statin users in the UK. Research has shown that around 10% of these people could be suffering from side-effects, which can include muscle aches, joint pain and fatigue. In other parts of the world statin manufacturers are obliged to state that statin drugs may impact our natural coQ10 production.
In a recent survey (2011-2012) of over 1200 Pharma Nord Q10 customers, 29% stated they topped up their Q10 levels because they took cholesterol lowering drugs.
Statins are a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs that work by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the liver’s synthesis of cholesterol.
Randomized clinical trials (RCT) show that statins are most effective when given to patients who already suffer from cardiovascular disease (CVD). They are, however, also widely used without CVD but who suffer from elevated cholesterol levels and/or other risk factors like diabetes and hypertension. There are many different types of statins, some with a more potent LDL-lowering effect than others.
Statins inhibit the enzyme HGM-CoA reductase and its ability to produce mevalonate, which is an intermediate product in the multi-step synthesis of cholesterol. In what is often referred to as the mevalonate pathway, mevalonate would under normal circumstances undergo a number of biochemical transformations, eventually causing it to branch into several different compounds, including cholesterol and ubiquinone. Statins effectively block this process.
Since coenzyme Q10 and cholesterol are both synthesized from the same substance, mevalonate, this implies that if the body's production of cholesterol is reduced by a statin, the body's production of coenzyme Q10 is reduced accordingly.
Coenzyme Q10 has multiple effects on the body's cholesterol level. Coenzyme Q10 will lower the body's cholesterol levels marginally. In addition, the antioxidant effect of Q10 will prevent circulating cholesterol from oxidizing and becoming very harmful.

Brilliant!! It is available on prescription, I take the Q10 Gold and the benefits are far too many to list, I feel better, no more muscle pains from statins and my Fibromyalgia has not flared at all since I started taking over 2 years ago, again BRILLIANT
Lifesaver! 100 mg Q10 boosted me out of the deep doldrums of M.E. and made life worth living again. I take it all the time but if I rin out my energy drops away within a week. Q10 is my friend for life xxxxxxx
I have been taking your products for some time now. My wife and myself take Bio-Quinone Active Q10 and Bio-Garlic as I have had bypass surgery 4 years ago. I am also on statin drugs and warfarin. My local health shop told me to take these as I am taking statin drugs and they will help. I am doing well and think your products are very good and will keep taking these tablets.
Taking Pharma Nord products for years, very satisfied with them. Because I have to take statins my Liver Test has been Not very good. But since I started taking Q10, Gold, the Liver function Test improved a lot.
My husband and I took Q10 for a couple of years and he also takes Omega 7 . I decided that the budget was being stretched by the Q10 and stopped buying it. I have noticed that my energy levels are really low again and the Q10 helped me before and will do again. This a really excellent company to deal with - any issues promptly dealt with.
I was put on "STATINS" about 5 years ago and after all these years this has made me feel tired and lacking in energy. I was advised to try BIO-QUINONE Q10 GOLD (100mg) and after 4 months I can really feel the benefit. I am now able to go for a walk each day and feel more energy. I also feel more alert every time I am driving and thank Q10 GOLD for this new me.
started taking Q10 after hearing a recommendation on radio, started feeling benefit within a month. You realise the benefit if you stop taking them you go back to feeling tired not wanting to do much etc. I have now been using Q10 for 5yrs. I am 65 and now attend gym 4 times a week completing full work outs feel fitter now than 10yrs ago.
I think that this product is the best that you have on the market , both my husband and I take it. We find we have more energy and a general improvement in our overall well being,thank you once again.
The only health supplement I've ever taken where I've seen a noticeable difference, specifically in my energy levels in the morning and early afternoon. I wake up feeling more refreshed and I have loads more energy throughout the day - I really notice it if I miss a day's dose!
I started taking this just for my general heart health but I have really noticed the difference with my energy levels increasing. I certainly feel more sluggish if I forget to take my Q10.
Excellent product. It was recommended by my husband's heart doctor due to his intolerance of the cholesterol statins. Ever since he consumes the Q10, he has no problem with his join and muscle pain.
I have been taking Bio-Quinone Q10 since September 2012. I have to admit I do believe my energy levels have increased. I have rheumatoid arthritis and have noticed what a difference I feel taking my Q10. Thank you
Q10 is fantastic, I have been taking it for over 18 months and what a difference in my skin and brain function. Highly recommend this product.
my husband and I have been taking Q10 for more than 30 years. We are now 78 years of age. My husband is still running, has an allotment and swims, attends a gym 3 times a week. We are both very active living in an attractive small town in North Yorkshire which is very hilly, also live in a house which is part of a converted 28th century linen mill and has 3 floors, so have many steps. We are both promoters of Q10 and will continue to do so

My husband and I have taken Q10 for 22 years. I take 200mg daily and at 69plus I am active and able to carry out research work in education,spend quality time with work, home and family and enjoy walking,pilates and using our small home gym which includes an exercise bike and rowing machine!!!My husband is 77 and wouldn't go a day without Q10. I am really pleased that doctors are now slowly beginning to recognise the benfits from this marvelloues product. I never fail o share Q10 information with colleagues and friends. When I have hospital appointments I always add Q10 to any medications I happen to be taking.
I started taking Pharma Nord Bio-Quinone Gold 100mg because my immune system was not good. Also my cholesteral level was going up & i had already had a stroke. My energy levels where poor as i also have B12 deficiancy. I have been on them now for about 6mths. My immune system has really picked up, my cholesteral level has dropped & i have much more energy. I concider the decission to take this product to be one of the best i have made in my life.
I have been singing the praises of Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold 100mg so loudly that even my cynical GP (now retired) started to take them and has had eat his words.
I learned about the benefits of taking Q10 when I attended a Fibromyalgia conference in Harrogate some years ago. Like millions of other Fibro sufferers I had been plagued by permanent 'flu-like' symptoms , with aching muscles and low energy levels.
Within weeks of taking Super Bio-Quinone Q10 I started to get my life back on track-with raised energy levels and a greater feeling of well being.
Shortly after retiring my former GP had a stroke. He was sapped of all energy and had statin related aching muscles. I persuaded him to give Q10 a whirl-after all what did he have to lose?
The cynic is now a convert and takes Q10 regularly.
I cannot recommend them highly enough !!
i am 68 years old , both myself and my husband have been taking Q10 for the last 18 years in all that time i have never had to have any treatment at the dentist other than a clean , my blood pressure is normal so is my cholesterol ,i get up at 4-00 am and i am very active i put it all down to taking Q10's with being on a pension i do find them expensive but manage to get the money together , its worth the expense to feel so well
I have been taking the 100mg Q10 for several years now and believe it has made me look and feel much younger than my current 70 years of age. It is expensive, but I shall continue to take it as long as I can afford it.
I often experience bleeding sore gums, and my dentist recommended I take this product. Within a short while of taking it, my gums are no longer a problem, and as an added bonus I have loads more energy and feel generally more healthy and vital. This supplement is also recommended by many naturopaths and wholistic pracitioners, it infuses cells in the body with energy and is a powerful antioxidant; I'm usually a bit of a sceptic when it comes to these things but I have seen the "proof in the pudding" for myself!!
I am disabled and I enjoy taking Co-Q10 capsules as part of my fitnessish routine.....
This should be available on prescription!! I had a free trial included with some q10 face cream (that works wonders too). I decided to try it after reading the information about the benefits. After 3 weeks my worryingly high blood pressure had returned to normal. More importantly to me however, I noticed huge improvements in my health after 25 years suffering M.E. I am now working full time, swimming, horse-riding, and going ski-ing this year. Over the business of Christmas and being so well, I forgot to take it, and it was when I noticed a return of old symptoms I decided to reintroduce and my health is back on form again within 2 weeks. This product has changed my life!! I take 3 a day and all physical, mental, and emotional symptoms have dramatically improved or completely disappeared! I lead a 'normal' life for the first time in 25 years! I struggle to afford it as it is expensive, but I can't afford not to take it. Research needs to be undertaken in this respect; and if findings support my experience being repeated, it needs to be made available/affordable for all!
I had a heart attack July 2010 and as a result I had a stent fitted and was put on the standard heart medications including Statins.
I continued to train in the gym doing cardio and weights however I found that I had a lot less energy and strength. I suffered really bad pain in my shoulders and thighs, the pain was so bad that I seriously thought of stopping training as even swimming left me in pain. It felt like I had been hit very hard with a stick when I got out of bed every morning.
I visited my GP who halved my statin medication with no effect I still had bad pain and felt realy down. My GP recommended that I try Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold 100mg as she had seen some research claiming that they had helped with muscle pain in other statin users.
I must admit I did not think they would have much effect on me however after taking Q10 100mg twice a day I noticed a difference almost straight away, the pain went away and I had a lot more energy. I stopped taking Q10 for a couple of days as I could not believe the change and sure enough the pain returned. I was on a diving holiday with friends and one of my friends who is also on statins said he was having the same pain as myself, I gave him a weeks supply of Q10 to see if it could help him and he was amazed at the difference and now he also takes Q10 every day with the same results .
Q10 has changed my opinion on supplements I used to think they were a gimmick however I could not be happier discovering Q10. These have been llife changing for me, that might sound an overeaction but in my case Q10 helped me gain back my strength, energy and pain free life which makes my life so much better. Thank you.
I was conscious that my energy levels had dropped alarmingly. I couldn't understand why this was because I ate a good diet, did not drink, had never smoked and was not over-weight. I reluctantly assumed that this was the natural effect of aging and something I just had to get used to and accept as I got older.
Knowing of Pharma Nord by reputation I bought a pack of Super Bio-Quinone Q10 and have been taking them ever since. I know it sounds unbelievable, but within a week of starting my first pack my energy levels rose amazingly and are now back to what they were fifteen years ago - provided I take Q10 regularly.
Excellent product. I'm taking the 100mg Q10 as recommended by my doctor and feel better. More tolerance in everyday activities and extra protection for my heart.
