Q10 Starter Pack contains 20 capsules of Pharma Nord's Bio-Quinone Q10 GOLD 100mg.
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 recommends 1-2 capsules per day, or as directed by a physician.
There are no known drug contraindications.
Pregnant or lactating women and those on medication should consult a doctor before using any product.
I have not tried this product, so I cannot really rate for its effectiveness, however I was surprised to see that you have not mentioned that Q10 may interact with Warfarin! I feel this should be rectified!
Coenzyme Q10 has potential to inhibit the effects of warfarin (Coumadin), a potent anticoagulant, by reducing the INR. The structure of coenzyme Q10 is very much similar to the structure of vitamin K, which competes with and counteracts warfarin's anticoagulation effects. Coenzyme Q10 should be avoided in patients currently taking warfarin due to the increased risk of clotting. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coenzyme_Q10

This product is packaged really well and helps my energy levels. I always used to get so tired by the afternoon and since taking this product I am usually fine until night time.
The fact it also helps protect my heart health is a great bonus.
