CoEnzymeQ10 update for over 40

Postby TTCnumber2at42 » Wed Sep 26, 2012 4:42 am

For those of you who are unaware I have recently seen a Naturopath (who is one of 30 who trained with Randine Lewis who wrote The Infertility Cure: The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program For Getting Pregnant And Having Healthy Babies and the Fertile Soul) she advised me that:

Replace CoQ10 with ubiquinol. You don’t need as much ubiquinol as it is much more absorbable than coQ 10. It is also utilized far better by people over 35, who have decreased ability to convert CoQ10.

She also claim that Ubiquinol has 8x more absorption rate than CoQ10.

She is advising that I use the brands Pure Encapsulations or Bioclinic Naturals ... probably because they have the "no hidden fillers, coatings, artificial colors or other excipients that would disrupt or diminish the bioavailability of the ingredients. Additionally, formulas are free of wheat, gluten, preservatives and hydrogenated oils." So it is the lest allergenic and more natural.

I am not sure where you can get this in the US but I would call around to your Health Food Stores or Naturopath's sell it also. I bought my first bottle from my Naturopath but found a cheaper and the same quality from a Canadian company in BC. I purchased mine on-line from www.well.ca the brand I bought was SISU Ubiquinol QH (http://well.ca/products/sisu-ubiquinol-qh_57214.html).

My Naturopath recommended Pure Encapsulations (loacted in Sudbury, MA) or Bioclinic Naturals (Coquitlam, BC - here is a Where to Buy link http://www.bioclinicnaturals.com/us/en/healthpros/where)

I hope that helped.
