Puritan’s Pride® Q-SORB Co Q-10 provides 50 mg of coenzyme Q-10

Puritan’s Pride® Q-SORB™ Co Q-10 provides 50 mg of coenzyme Q-10. These low doses of Coenzyme Q-10 can be taken multiple times throughout the day to customize your intake to meet your needs.

Co Q-10 is an important nutrient that supports healthy aging. When taken as directed, these Co Q-10 softgels offer antioxidant support.** Not only that, Co Q-10 also has the ability to promote heart health.** Good oral health is linked to cardiovascular health and Co Q-10 promotes gum health as well.**

Puritan's Pride's own Q-Sorb™ Co Q-10 is a naturally fermented, highly purified form of Co Q-10. It is enrobed in naturally sourced oils to improve absorption. The highest purity Co Q-10 in our Q-Sorb™ Co Q-10 means you are getting the same form of Co Q-10 found in nature coupled with better absorption.

JUST THE FACTS ON CO Q-10

Co Q-10 levels in the body reach their peak by age 20 and
decrease by up to 50% in different parts of the body by age 80.3


1

Co Q-10 Levels

Statins can lead to a 51%
decrease in Co Q-10 plasma levels
within 30 days of use.++


2

Dietary Intake

The average dietary intake of Co Q-10 is only about 3-5 milligrams per day.3 Not nearly enough to replenish levels lost due to age-related decline or prescription drugs.


3

How much do I need?

Depending on your needs, Co Q-10 supplementation recommendations can range anywhere from 60-600 milligrams per day to increase tissue concentrations.

++ Co Q-10 is not intended to serve as a replacement for statin therapy, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with Co Q-10
Co Q-10’s Role in Supporting Energy**

Co Q-10 acts as a key component in our mitochondrial machinery involved in making up a large percentage of the body’s energy.

This energy is produced via the electron transport chain in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) across the inner mitochondrial membrane.1

Co Q-10 for
Heart Health**

Co Q-10 is vital for the muscle of the heart.2

The reason is due to the heart’s requirement of a constant supply of ATP energy. While blood vessels transport blood, the heart provides the force to pump blood around the body.

As a result, Co Q-10 concentration is an important determination of heart function and cardiovascular health.5 Historically, scientific studies evaluating the effects of Co Q-10 have been mainly focused on its potential support to cardiovascular health.9**

Statins and Co Q-10

Co Q-10 supplements can help replenish what is lost with age or what statin medications deplete.

However, Co Q-10 is not intended to serve as a replacement for statin therapy, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with Co Q-10.

Co Q-10 supplementation recommendations can range
anywhere from 60-600 milligrams per day.

As you get older opt for a higher dose Co Q-10 supplement, but don’t forget to choose a highly purified Co Q-10 like Q-Sorb™ Co Q-10.

Top FAQs about Co Q-10

Why should I supplement with Co Q-10?

As we get older, our natural Co Q-10 levels decline, especially in the heart, other organs and tissues with high-energy requirements, and in outer layers of the skin. A highly purified Co Q-10 supplement like Q-Sorb™ may assist in keeping these levels up, especially as we get older.**

Can I get Co Q-10 from my diet?

Although Co Q-10 can be found in foods like fish, pork, and beef, we may not obtain enough Co Q-10 in our daily diets, especially as cooking methods like frying reduces the natural Co Q-10 content in these foods. Following a plant-based diet may also mean lower Co Q-10 intake. By taking a Co Q-10 supplement, this gap in our diet may be filled.

How does Co Q-10 work?

Co Q-10 is needed for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the energy our body cells use to perform their daily activities optimally. Certain cells in the body are more metabolically active and have higher energy requirements. Co Q-10 levels are naturally higher in the heart and skeletal muscles for this reason.

I take a statin and my doctor recommended I take Co Q-10, why?

Studies have found that statins deplete Co Q-10 levels in the body. A Co Q-10 supplement can help replenish what a statin medication might deplete. Please be aware that Co Q-10 is not intended as a replacement for statin therapy, nor should you discontinue any prescription medication while supplementing with Co Q-10.

What is Q-Sorb™ Co Q-10?

Puritan's Pride's own Q-Sorb™ Co Q-10 is a naturally fermented, highly purified form of Co Q-10. We take the same form of Co Q-10 your body naturally produces and enrobe it in naturally sourced oils to improve absorption. Q-Sorb™ is available in rapid-release softgels in various dosages to suit your needs.


Top Co Q-10 Myths

Myth: Co Q-10 is an energy stimulant or will give you the "jitters"

Although Co Q-10 helps the body produce energy, this energy production is at a cellular level so Co Q-10 will not give you the sudden energy boost you may get from consuming caffeine or a sugary snack.

Myth: I take a multivitamin and mineral every day, so I don’t need Co Q-10

Most multivitamin and mineral supplements contain no or very low quantities of Co Q-10. Additionally to support absorption, Co Q-10 is best taken in a softgel along with a meal. Co Q-10 supplementation may be especially important as we age as our Co Q-10 levels naturally decline as we get older.

Myth: I should only supplement with Co Q-10 in the ubiquinol form

Co Q-10 is also called ubiquinone and is converted into the body to its reduced and active form called ubiquinol. While ubiquinol is an advanced form for those looking for increased absorption, supplementation with ubiquinone is sufficient to raise Co Q-10 levels in the body.

Myth: Co Q-10 is easily absorbed in tablets or in powder form

Efficient absorption of any ingredient is dependent on a variety of factors, but with Co Q-10, delivery form is of particular importance. Taking Co Q-10 in a softgel rather than in a powder form makes Co Q-10 more absorbable. By choosing a high purity Co Q-10 like Q-Sorb™ Co Q-10, you know you’re getting not only quality you can trust, but also that your body is going to absorb it more efficiently too.

Myth: I can stop my cholesterol-lowering medication if I use Co Q-10

No. Co Q-10 is not intended to serve as a replacement for statin medication, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with Co Q-10 without consulting your doctor.
