Pharma Nord - Bio Active Q10 Ubiquinol 100mg - 60 caps
by Pharma Nord
What is Bio Active Q10 Ubiquinol?
BioActive Q10 contains the reduced form of coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinol) in a specially stabilised form and Vitamin C which contributes to the normal function of the immune system and a normal energy-yielding metabolism.
What We Think
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.
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.
Q10 Ubiquinol is also known as BioActive Q10. Certain categories of people may be less able to absorb the ubiquinone form. These include the elderly, as well as people with liver disease, pancreatic disease, digestive disorders such as IBS, and following digestive tract surgery. For such categories of people, Q10 is more easily absorbed in the reduced (ubiquinol) form, as BioActive Q10.
Ubiquinol is extremely sensitive to the effects of air and light. BioActive Q10 contains ubiquinol in a stabilised form, using specially developed lightproof and air-proof packaging to prevent oxidation via a unique patented process. The manufacturing process ensures complete dissolution of the Q10 crystals in an oil blend that is encapsulated in light-proof gelatine caps and blister-packed.
