I'm over 45, so my CoQ 10 levels aren't the same as when I was 27 years old.

I have been convinced that not only I but my elderly parents should take this supplement.

From the LR4YT and the ER4YGT (Eat Right for Your Genotype) perspective, what does Dr. D say about CoQ10 (ubiquinone and ubiquinol)?

This is a big question. I look forward to your direct answers.

It's Friday. Yea!

He recommends it for all blood groups for cancer prevention.


Nonsecretors  can also use it for pulmonary support, fatigue fighting, and cardiovascular support


Quoted from Dr. D.
Increases intracellular energy. Protects against angina and congestive heart failure. A powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals.

I'm not typically a supplement person but I can't say enough wonderful things about CoQ10.  No time to enumerate them all now, but this is the main supplement I take and I love it.  I initially took it for gum health, but immediately noticed it's impact on my mood/sense of wellbeing/optimism, energy level, and regulating my sleep/wake cycle (circadian rhythm).  CoQ10 is also very heart-protective and good for women's breast health.

It's awesome.

I take Ubiquinol (different form), you might check that out. I would like to know Dr. D's input on that...

The formula is heavy on Hawthorne. I thought Hawthorne was only to be taken when symptoms appear? From previous reading. It helps me greatly if I get palpitations.

The CoQ10 in this formula is only 5 mg. People with Congestive Heart Failure don't get results until they are up around 100 mg.

However, the combination might be better than either singularly. I trust Dr. D but it is so hard to not remember all the things I learned before. And that helped me before.

Is his cardia formula for all types?


You guys are great!

On the Warpath! Grrrr, watch out!

I was told by a naturopath that CoQ10 wouldn't be advisable for me, due to having already thin blood...

Duude, I think that doc was misinformed. I don't think CoQ10 is a blood thinner!  

I could see him or her saying that about fish oil but CoQ10?  Sorry, but I don't think that pup knew his or her stuff.

I'm off to Google it now, but I'm 99.99% sure it isn't a blood thinner.

Okay, little Possum dude, I'm baa-aack and I was right. CoQ10 is not a blood thinner.  In fact, at very high doses, it apparently could act as a coagulent:

http://www.optimal-heart-health.com/side_effects_of_co_q10.html

"Co Q10 can act as a blood coagulant. This might be a problem for someone taking a blood thinner such as Coumadin. There have been at least four reported cases where Co Q10 apparently decreased the anticoagulant effects of Coumadin."

Aaaaaaaand I'm back yet again, with conflicting info, no less. Oy vey, so this link says coq10 can be a blood thinner at very high doses:

http://webcache.googleusercont.....ticles/CoQ10.art.asp

So, now I'm confused. Coagulant or thinner?  Potato, potato. I'm going to continue taking it because I think it is nothing short of a fabulous elixer of life...and that may be understating it a bit.

It's awesome!

My mom is on a statin, and statins lower your coq10 level. I feel she really needs to supplement with it. She wants to ask her doc first, which she hopefully will do this coming week (she forgot last time she saw him).

Anyway, it is good, good stuff.

Two-thumbed typing wiz, OUT.

Your body naturally produces CoQ10 and converts it into the active form, Ubiquinol.  Although, as you age your body can no longer produce as much CoQ10 and it also begins to lose its ability to convert the CoQ10 into Ubiquinol.  Since Ubiquinol is the already-converted form of CoQ10, I'd say it's more effective than Ubiquinone.

I've been trying to get her onto CoQ10 for at least a year, by my guesstimate. As of this writing, she is going to ask her doctor about it (because she doesn't make a move based on me telling her blah blah blah...I'm not an MD, therefore I know nada re CoQ10) and, if he says it is okay, she'll consider it. I pointed out that if u r on statins, they deplete you of CoQ10, so u need supplementation more than anyone. I pointed out that it is in every cell and your body makes it and blah blah. I pointed out how she is SO low energy and specifically has trouble with her legs. I pointed out that it is heart protective and restorative. I pointed out that she is a breast cancer survivor and it is protective against breast cancer. Response?  You're not a doctor. I don't take anything unless my doctor says I should.  I'll ask him. But them she keeps forgetting to ask him when she sees him.

I've led the horse to water...  Why, just tonight, we had a near argument about CoQ10 again.

I'm trying!

*sigh*
