    What is SelenoQ10?

    Selenium tablets and Q10 capsulesSelenoQ10 is a combination product consisting of soft gelatin capsules with 100 mg of Q10 in the form of ubiquinone and round, white tablets with 100 ug of selenium yeast (SelenoPrecise). SelenoQ10 is particularly suitable for middle-aged and elderly people.

    The capsules are oval with a volume of 10 minim. The length is approx. 15 mm and 9 mm wide. They can be chewed if they are too big.

    The tablets are white, coated, biconvex with an engraved mortar on each side, a diameter of 9.5 mm

    The recommended daily intake is 2 tablets and 2 capsules daily with meals.

    The recommended daily dose can be taken with a single meal, but it is recommended to divide the daily ration to accompany two meals per day.

    Why you should take SelenoQ10

    Middle-aged coupleSelenoQ10 combines the patented organic selenium yeast, SelenoPrecise®, with Bio-Quinone Q10 (coenzyme Q10) in a special formula intended to provide the highest level of bio-availability.

    Selenium is important for all population groups. Still, elderly people may have an increased need for this particular nutrient because selenium contributes to normal functioning of the immune system at the same time as protecting the body’s cells against oxidative stress.

    Selenium is incorporated in a number of selenoproteins, including the enzyme thioredoxin reductase which is capable of regenerating Q10 in the body. A sufficient selenium status is therefore useful for optimizing Q10's function in the body.

    The selenium content of agricultural soil is low in Scandinavia and large parts of Europe. Finland is an exception because selenium is added to fertilisers.

    Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance that we get from certain foods. We are even able to synthesise the substance ourselvelves (endogenously). Q10 occurs naturally in the blood and in all our cells inside the mitochondria. The body's energy is produced inside the mitochondria in an intriciate multi-step process. The body’s Q10 levels peak at the age of 20-25 years. From that point onward, our endogenos Q10 synthesis slows down.

    In countries where we do not market SelenoQ10

    The original selenium and Q10 preparations can be purchased separately. The dosage for Q10 is 100 mg 2 times daily. The dosage for selenium is 200 µg once daily or alternatively 100 µg once or twice daily.

    The selenium used in SelenoQ10

    SelenoPrecise is a patented selenium yeast containing selenomethionine together with more than 20 other organic selenium species. This selenium yeast was developed as a way of emulating the diversity of selenium types found in a varied diet with many different high-selenium foods. SelenoPrecise has excellent absorbability and bioavailability and has scientific documentation to validate it. This widely used selenium yeast is highly reproducible and therefore ideal for scientific research due to the need for a reliable and homogenous outcome. SelenoPrecise is documented in over 40 published scientific studies.

    The coenzyme Q10 used in SelenoQ10

    Pharma Nord has spent more than 25 years on developing and optimizing a Q10 formula with superior bioavailability and quality and scientific documentation to validate these properties. The unique formula features high-quality coenzyme Q10 in a purified soy oil matrix that has been exposed to a special heat treatment to make the active compound fully absorbable in the digestive system. The capsules' content of Q10 is identical to the Q10 that the body produces itself. The formula is encapsulated in soft, light-protected gelatin. Multiple clinical studies have demonstrated that Pharma Nord's Q10 formula is significantly more bioavailable than any other Q10 brands. It is thanks to these targeted efforts that Pharma Nord's Q10 is the most widely sold Q10 brand in Europe. Pharma Nord's Q10 has been officially selected as the science reference by the International Coenzyme Q10 Association (ICQA).

    What is KiSel-10?

    KiSel-10 is the official name of the groundbreaking study that was conducted by Swedish researchers led by Professor Urban Alehagen and published in 2013 in International Journal of Cardiology. In this double-blind, placebo-controlled study, the scientists randomly assigned 443 old but healthy men and women to either daily supplementation with 200 micrograms of selenium yeast (SelenoPrecise) and 200 milligrams of coenzyme Q10 (Bio-Quinon Q10), or matching placebo. The intervention period was five years, and the scientists found that quality of life in the active treatment group had increased significantly by several accounts.

    Variations in gelatin hardness

    The hardness of the soft gelatin capsules in SelenoQ10 can vary. The difference depends solely on the water content of the capsule shell. We dry all our soft capsules before packaging, which makes the capsules firmer and facilitates the packaging process itself. Over time, the capsules can absorb water from the air, and this will soften the capsule shell.

    The variations in the hardness of the capsule have no effect on the product quality, but if a hard capsule is a problem, a solution may be to leave the capsule outside the blister sheet for a day, whereby the capsule can absorb a little water from the air. This is generally not something we recommend, as the product will no longer be protected as when it is in the blister sheet. Another method of quickly softening the gelatin capsule is to place it in lukewarm water for one minute. However, it should be seen as an emergency solution.
