Pharma Nord Q10 used in the Q-symbio study
Pharma Nord Q10 does it again: Occupy the headlines in health news journals around the world. Most recently, Professor Sven Aage Mortensen from Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen and his colleagues in EU and Asia presented the results of the Q-symbio study at a congress of cardiologists in Lisbon, Portugal, 23 - 28 May 2013.
420 patients from nine different countries was included in the Q-symbio study who examined a group of persons with low levels of Q10.
Pharma Nord's Q10 dissolved in vegetable oil
The active treatment consisted of a soft gelatin capsule with 100 mg of Q10 three times a day for two years. The study wanted to show how well those who got Q10 performed compared to those who had to do without.
Last year we saw another study with healthy elderly in the so-called KiSel-10 study where Dr. Urban Alehagen and his team used the same Pharma Nord Q10 with the selenium product SelenoPrecise – and with similar results.
Why Q10 from pharma Nord?
Researchers prefer Pharma Nord Q10 because it has documentation from more than 90 scientific studies and also documentation for high bioavailability and safety. It is manufactured under Danish pharmaceutical control and is the official reference product for ICQA (International Coenzyme Q10 Association).
Pharma Nord has also Q10 registered as a drug.
Overweight persons lacking vitamin D
A new study shows that the degree of obesity and vitamin D deficiency is inversely proportional. In other words: Every time our BMI increases by 10%, your body's levels of vitamin D decrease by 4.2%.
The reason for this is according to the researchers quite simple. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is stored in the body's fatty tissues. The more fat tissue we form, the more vitamin will be stored in the fatty tissue, which means that there will be proportionately less vitamin to circulate the blood.
In this study, researchers included 21 studies with a total of more than 42,000 people which gives the result good scientific weight. The result was applicable for both men and women, young and old.
The study does not suggest that lack of vitamin D in particular will lead to obesity. On the other hand it emphasizes the importance of obese being aware of getting enough vitamin D.
