    Q10 is again highlighted by leading heart journal



    Once again, one of the world's leading journals for cardiologists has highlighted the vitamin-related substance coenzyme Q10. In the journal article, there is a particular focus on Pharma Nord's Q10 preparation. Read here why exactly the cells of the heart muscle are so dependent on the substance.

    Scientists have known for a long time that the naturally occurring substance coenzyme Q10 has a central role in the cells' energy metabolism. Research has revealed that the cells of the heart muscle in particular have a great need for the substance. This was demonstrated, among other things, in 2014, when the Danish cardiologist Svend Aage Mortensen published the sensational Q-Symbio study outcomes in the leading cardiology journal JACC: Heart Failure. 

    Now the same journal is once again focusing on coenzyme Q10. This time, the focus comes in connection with the publication of a completely new meta-analysis (1), which shows that coenzyme Q10 is relevant precisely for the heart. No fewer than seven of the scientific studies included in the analysis were carried out with Pharma Nord's Q10 preparation.

    The heart uses Q10

    Coenzyme Q10 is a substance that all the body's cells need to be able to generate energy in the tiny power plants (mitochondria). The reason why the heart needs more of the substance is that the heart muscle requires huge amounts of energy to be able to contract rhythmically around the clock from cradle to grave. When we play sports or exert ourselves physically, this will naturally drain the heart's Q10 reserves, and therefore it is important to constantly ensure that the body does not lack the substance.


    Many elderly people take Q10 supplements

    The interesting thing about coenzyme Q10 is that we humans can form the substance ourselves in the body. However, this ability gradually diminishes as we age. This is a problem, as coenzyme Q10, in addition to being an energy catalyst, acts as an antioxidant by protecting the cells against what is called oxidative stress. This condition occurs when harmful oxygen molecules (free radicals) attack healthy cells and the body's antioxidant defenses are not strong enough. Many elderly people today take coenzyme Q10 supplements to make sure they have enough of the substance in their blood.


    The original Q10 product backed by unique research

    In 1990, Pharma Nord was the first company in Europe to introduce a drug containing the substance coenzyme Q10 in small, dark brown gelatin capsules. Soon thereafter, the first of a long series of scientific studies were initiated to document the product's effectiveness. Today, 75 scientific studies have been published on the effect of the preparation on humans. This makes Bio-Qinon Q10 one of the best researched Q10 preparations in the world. These studies, combined with 32 years of user experience, help to document the preparation's safety, absorbability and effect.  

    Bio-Qinon Q10 is produced using a patented method that ensures that the normally difficult-to-absorb Q10 molecules can pass unimpeded through the intestinal mucosa and into the bloodstream. From here, they are taken out to all the cells.


    Q10 is not just Q10

    The processing of the Q10 raw material is very important for the finished product to be effective. See in the video below how Pharma Nord ensures the high absorption that is part of the explanation for the many convincing research results
