Nutramax Labs - CoMax Q10 50 mg. 60 Softgels
Nutramax Labs Co-MaxQ10 is an easy-to-swallow softgel capsule that contains 50 mg coenzyme Q10 in a highly stable blend of oils. Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant and is essential for the conversion of the food you eat into energy. Energy production takes place within specialized structures in your cell called mitochondria and thus, need greater quantities of coenzyme Q10. As one ages, the level of coenzyme Q10 has been found to decrease, which affects the body's energy production.
- Contains a highly stable specially formulated blend of coenzyme Q10 in an easily absorbed oil base
- Coenzyme Q10 not only supports cardiac function, but is also an important antioxidant that is necessary for the energy production of all cells. Cholesterol lowering drugs (statins) can block the production of the coenzyme Q10 in the body. Co Max Q10 can help replenish the coenzyme Q10 depletion in the body.
- CoMax Q10 contains 50 mg of CoQ10 in an easy to swallow softgel capsule
What is OmegaMint?
OmegaMint is a specially formulated fish oil supplement rich in the important omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Uniquely flavored fish oil with natural peppermint, each softgel can be swallowed or chewed.
What is fish oil, and what are its benefits?
Fish oil supplementation has been the topic of much research in recent years. Physicians are discovering many health benefits from the oil found in cold-water fish such as salmon and the omega-3 fatty acids it contains. Omega-3 fatty acids are the healthy fatty acids (unsaturated fats) that you may have read about for heart health. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids help support many other systems in the body including kidney function, the immune system, the nervous system, as well as help support overall health.
Why is OmegaMint flavored?
Many people have objections to fish oil because of taste or odor. OmegaMint delivers fish oil in a pleasant, natural peppermint flavor, minimizing fishy breath or aftertaste.
Are any side effects expected when taking OmegaMint?
There are no known side effects or interactions with any drug or nutritional supplement and no known contraindications when taking omega- 3 fatty acids at the suggested levels. We do recommend that you avoid taking higher than recommended levels of OmegaMint without checking with your physician first as excessive fish oil consumption above suggested levels can potentially affect blood clotting. For more information, visit americanheart.org. If you have any condition or allergy that requires medical attention you should always consult your physician before taking any drug or dietary supplement.
Do I get enough DHA and EPA in the foods I eat?
DHA and EPA are found in cold-water fish; however, most of the U.S. population eats less than the recommended two servings per week. Some foods, including pastas and cereals, are now labeled as being “fortified with omega-3 fatty acids.” However, these foods often contain flaxseed oil which is a source of “short-chain” omega-3 fatty acids and not the long-chain omega-3s DHA and EPA. Research indicates DHA and EPA provide a higher degree of support for the heart and other organs than the short chain omega-3s. OmegaMint provides a direct source of DHA and EPA. Fish oil—not flaxseed oil—is recommended for heart health.
Contamination with heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, and other pollutants, such as PCBs and dioxins, can be an issue with fish and fish oil supplements. Should I be concerned about this with OmegaMint?
Not at all. The fish oil in OmegaMint is tested for the presence of heavy metals and other pollutants and is molecularly distilled to ensure purity. OmegaMint is below the limits on mercury and lead levels in omega-3 consumer products pursuant to the GOED monograph (Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3’s).
How do I take OmegaMint?
General heart health supplement: 2 softgels daily
At risk for coronary heart disease: 5 softgels daily
