What is Q10 Green Bio-Quinone?

Corn, potatoes, peas and Q10 Green phytocapsules.Q10 Green consists of soft vegetable capsules with Q10 in the form of 100 mg of active ubiquinone dissolved in vegetable oil. The capsules are also light-sealed with a mixture of cocoa powder, red beet powder and green tea. The actual content of Q10 is completely identical to that found in the original Q10 Gold, so you can expect a similar effect.

For decades, Pharma Nord's Q10 preparations have been the world's most widely used Q10 brand which is linked to the fact that it is capable of documenting a high absorption in the body.

Q10 is a fat-soluble, crystalline substance that the body has difficulty absorbing, but with the help of a special manufacturing technique developed and patented by Pharma Nord, the Q10 raw material undergoes a special heat treatment which causes the Q10 crystals to dissolve completely at body temperature. It is this complete solution of Q10 and the high quality of the raw material, as well as manufacturing according to the GMP protocol, that is why Pharma Nord's Q10 has achieved such good absorption of the active substance.

What is coenzyme Q10?

Coenzyme Q10 (or just Q10) is a vitamin-like substance. It's also called ubiquinone (ubi is Latin and means ”everywhere”). The name indicates that Q10 is found in almost all body cells.

When a cell needs energy it convert fat, carbohydrate, protein, and alcohol into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a molecule that stores energy in its chemical form. The cell breaks down the ATP molecule and releases the energy trapped inside. The entire process takes place inside the cells in some small bean-shaped structures called mitochondria. Coenzyme Q10 is found in all mitochondria. Muscle cells are particularly dependent on large amounts of energy, which is why muscle cells contain substantially more mitochondria than other types of cells. The heart muscle is a good example of body tissue with cells that contain a large number of mitochondria and have a correspondingly large energy requirement.

A very safe substance
Scientific articlesStudies have shown that it is possible to take Q10 supplementation over a very long period without affecting the body's own production of the substance. Pharma Nord has more than 20 years of experience in the use of Q10 as a dietary supplement and as a pharmaceutical.

It is not completely dertermined, but the diet is believed to add somewhere between 3 - 6 mg Q10 daily. The body itself has a store of Q10 around 1-1.5 g, most of which is found in the heart, liver and kidneys.

Vegetable sources for Q10

Fruits, vegetables and nutsThere are no large quantities of Q10 in vegetable foods. The largest quantities of Q10 are found in organ and muscle meat. The best vegetable sources of Q10 are:

  • Soybean oil and soybeans
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli sprouts
  • Legumes
  • Avocado
  • Almonds and peanuts

Questions and answers about Q10 Green

 

1 - What is the difference between the various Q10 products marketed by Pharma Nord?


Bio-Qinon Q10 30 mg: (Dietary supplement)
The preparation is the only Q10 product in Denmark officially approved for the prevention and treatment of Q10 deficiency.
The capsule content is identical to the content of Myoqinon, the research Q10 formulation. It is Q10 in the form of ubiquinone (oxidized Q10) dissolved in mixed purified soybean oils surrounded by a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule (animal). An advantage of this capsule size is that it can be ingested throughout the day in many different dosages: 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 mg daily.

Bio-Quinone Active Q10 GOLD 100 mg: (Dietary supplement)
The capsule content is identical to our research Q10 formulation: Myoqinon. It is Q10 in the form of ubiquinone (oxidized Q10) dissolved in mixed purified soybean oils surrounded by a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule (animal). It contains a patented recrystallization technology that ensures high and documented absorption.

Q10 Green - BioQuinone 100 mg: (Dietary supplement)
This is a Q10 preparation suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The capsule content is identical to our research Q10 formulation: Myoqinon, Q10 in the form of ubiquinone (oxidized Q10) dissolved in specially treated soybean oils surrounded by a Pharma Nord-developed, soft, vegetable phytocapsule (made from, potatoes, peas and GMO-free corn). The difference between Q10 Green and Q10 Gold is exclusively the capsule shell. Q10 Green incorporates the same patented technology as Q10 Gold.

BioActive Q10 Uniqinol 50 /100 mg: (Dietary supplement)
The capsule content is the reduced form of Q10 (ubiquinol) together with 12 mg of vitamin C dissolved in coconut oil and surrounded by a pharmaceutical grade gelatin capsule (animal). Research data do not show that this type of Q10 has better bioavailability over Ubiquinone but some people prefer this form of Q10.
 

2 - Is there a difference between the Q10 content in Q10 Green and Q10 Gold?


No. The content of the Q10 itself in the two preparations is identical and at the same time identical to the Q10 that has been included in many scientific studies with Pharma Nord's Q10. The difference lies solely in the capsule shell.
 

3 - Where does the Q10 come from in Q10 Green?


The Q10 content of Q10 Green is formed by specialized yeast fungi that are grown entirely without animal ingredients. The Q10 that the fungi produce contains no yeast, is completely identical to the form produced by the body itself, and is a pharmaceutical quality as opposed to Q10 food quality supplements.
 

4 - Why do we use soybean oil and not olive oil or rice oil in Q10 Green?


We have indeed considered and tested olive oil as well as a very wide range of other oils and fats to dissolve our Q10. The results of all this testing have clearly shown that a special combination of soybean oils with different melting points is necessary to obtain the best absorbability.

However, you cannot compare our soybean mixture with the regular soybean oil used for cooking. Pharma Nord uses a pharmaceutical grade soybean oil completely purified of protein substances, which also have been analyzed for absence of proteins in an external laboratory. The protein substances in soybean oil are the same substances that have estrogen-like effects and that people with hypersensitivity to soy typically react to.
 

5 - Why should Q10 Green be taken with a meal?


Q10 is a fat-soluble substance that is transported in the lymph into the bloodstream. Therefore, it is important to take Q10 in conjunction with a meal that contains some fat to achieve the best absorption in the body. The maximum blood content of Q10 is reached approx. 6 hours after taking a capsule of Q10 Green.
 

6 - Should I take breaks from Q10 Green?


Q10 is an extremely safe substance that can be taken lifelong by adults. Pregnant and breastfeeding should not take Q10 because the safety of Q10 supplementation for these groups is not sufficiently documented. In addition, people on medical treatments are advised to be aware of possible interactions with Q10, which might indicate pausing Q10 intake. Please note that upon termination of supplementation, the body's Q10 level will return to the same level as before. This shows that supplementation with Q10 does not affect the body's own ability to produce Q10.
 

7 - I can't swallow the Q10 capsule, can I cut it?


You can cut a hole in the capsule with a knife or scissors and squeeze out the orange Q10 paste, but be aware that there will be some Q10 left on the inside of the capsule.
You can also chew the capsule and bite the phytocapsule completely flat. Then you can eat the phytocapsule or spit it out.

If you suck on the capsule, it will burst after approx. 90 seconds.
 

8 - How to store Q10-Green best?


The Q10 Green capsules are intended for storage in the original package at room temperature. We test our preparations in heating cabinets so we know that they are effective until the expiry date.  After that, they will still be effective for some time if they have been stored correctly, but after the expiry date, our warranty for the efficacy and safety of the preparations will cease and we advise against  the use of preparations with exceeded expiration dates.
The capsules can tolerate a temperature higher than room temperature, which will not damage the content, even if they become very soft, but the storage temperature should not exceed 86° F (30° C) for a long period of time.

Refrigerator?
As a rule, we advise against storing the capsules in the refrigerator, partly because of high humidity and because very cold capsules are likely to reduce the absorbability. If the refrigerator is the only option to keep the storage temperature down, you can store them in a refrigerator, but preferably in an airtight container. Do not use the capsules directly from the refrigerator but let them warm slightly up first. Then there should be no problem.
