CoQ10 Power™ - Test Results
"I compared 90 mg of pharmaceutical grade Co Q-10, claimed by the manufacturer to have triple the absorption of other brands, thanks to the use of nanotechnology, to your product. On this dose, the blood level was 0.6 mg/L. On one Researched Nutritionals brand Co Q-10 daily, the blood level at the same lab was 1.4 mg/L, or nearly three times higher."

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a compound found naturally in the energy-producing mitochondria. CoQ10 is involved in the making of an important molecule known as ATP. ATP serves as the cell's major energy source.
It is also an Antioxidants, substances that scavenge free radicals, damaging compounds in the body that alter cell membranes, chnage with DNA, and even cause cell death. Antioxidants like CoQ10 can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.
CoQ10 boosts energy, enhances the immune system, and acts as an antioxidant.
Promote Healthy Heart
Researchers believe that the beneficial effect of CoQ10 in the promoting a healthy heart is due to its ability to improve energy production in cells, inhibit blood clot formation, and act as an antioxidant. One important study, for example, found that people who received daily CoQ10 supplements within 3 days of a heart attack were significantly less likely to experience subsequent heart attacks and chest pain. In addition, these same patients were less likely to die of heart disease than those who did not receive the supplements.
Healthy Cholesterol Support
Levels of CoQ10 tend to be lower in people with high cholesterol compared to healthy individuals of the same age. In addition, certain cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (such as atorvastatin, cerivastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, simvastatin) appear to deplete natural levels of CoQ10 in the body. Taking CoQ10 supplements can correct the deficiency caused by statin medications without affecting the medication's positive effects on cholesterol levels.
Gum disease is a widespread problem that is associated with swelling, bleeding, pain, and redness of the gums. Studies have shown that people with gum disease tend to have low levels of CoQ10 in their gums. In a few studies involving small numbers of subjects, CoQ10 supplements caused faster healing and tissue repair. Additional studies are needed to evaluate the effectiveness of CoQ10 when used together with traditional therapy for periodontal disease.
A multi-center study published in the Oct. 15, 2002 issue of the American Medical Association's Archives of Neurology, provide the first evidence that Coenzyme Q10 might slow the progression of the disease. Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the brain in which patients develop tremor, slowness of movement and stiffness of muscles. It affects approximately 1 percent of Americans over the age of 65. Although certain drugs, such as levodopa, can reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, no treatment has been shown to slow the progressive deterioration in function.

If you are currently being treated with any of the following medications, you should not use CoQ10 without first talking to your healthcare provider. Daunorubicin and Doxorubicin Coenzyme Q10 may help to reduce the toxic effects on the heart caused by daunorubicin and doxorubicin, two chemotherapy medications that are commonly used to treat a variety of cancers. Blood Pressure Medications In a study of individuals taking blood pressure medications (including diltiazem, metoprolol, enalapril, and nitrate), CoQ10 supplementation allowed the individuals to take lower dosages of these drugs. This suggests that CoQ10 may enhance the effectiveness of certain blood pressure medications, but more research is needed to verify these results. Warfarin There have been reports that coenzyme Q10 may decrease the effectiveness of blood-thinning medications such as warfarin, leading to the need for increased doses. Therefore, given that this medication must be monitored very closely for maintenance of appropriate levels and steady blood thinning, CoQ10 should only be used with warfarin under careful supervision by your healthcare provider. Timolol CoQ10 supplementation may reduce the heart-related side effects of timolol drops, a beta-blocker medication used to treat glaucoma, without decreasing the effectiveness of the medication.
Medications that can lower the levels of coenzyme Q10 in the body include statins for cholesterol (atorvastatin, cerivastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, simvastatin), fibric acid derivatives for cholesterol (specifically, gemfibrozil), beta-blockers for high blood pressure (such as atenolol, labetolol, metoprolol, and propranolol), and tricyclic antidepressant medications (including amitriptyline, amoxapine, clomipramine, desipramine, doxepin, imipramine, nortriptyline, protriptyline, and trimipramine).
