I pre­scribe CoQ10 most com­monly as sup­port dur­ing statin ther­apy but also to sup­port body sys­tems dam­aged by dis­eases, es­pe­cially car­dio­vas­cu­lar, au­toim­mune­and neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive prob­lems.

Where just CoQ10 is needed I use a US patented CoQ10 prod­uct. If part of a pro­gramme for spe­cific health prob­lems I often usemy for­mula that com­bi­nesCoQ10 with var­i­ous en­ergy and an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory. Un­for­tu­nately the mar­ket is­be­ing flood­ed­with low cost CoQ10 sup­ple­ments. In the past, all the good CoQ10 came from one of two Ja­panese pro­duc­ers. High qual­ity, nat­u­rally fer­mented CoQ10 is very ex­pen­sive to make and is one of the most ex­pen­sive in­gre­di­ents I use. The world gold stan­dard isKanekaQ10®. I re­cently made a new batch ofmy MTQ10 for­mu­lawhich has 100mg of KanekaQ10® in each cap­sule, at three times the cost of us­ing Chi­nese sourced CoQ10.

Aclient was tak­ing ourCoQ10 as sup­port for statins to pre­vent com­mon side ef­fects of­mus­cle pain and low en­ergy. When they had fin­ished the bot­tle they were tempted by amuch cheaper prod­uct— less than half the cost with­ahigher amount of CoQ10 per cap­sule. After amonth their pains re­turned. Back on the orig­i­nal high qual­ity prod­uct they were fine.
