Hey guys, this is in relation to the above question: last week I was in Flordia & wandered into a health store- I asked about coq10 & they recommended Emperors Essentials Coq10. Its a softgel form- the guy said that was way better than the other capsules- anyways, I was wondering if any of you have tried it? What did you think? I was impressed & am now taking it daily- I'll keep you all posted!!! I plan to keep trying new supplements to find what works best for me.
Also if anyone can recommend a good multi vitamin I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi gang! I have been taking Coq10 for about a week. I am noticing I have more energy.
I was recently diagnosed with high cholesterol & high blood pressure. The Dr put me on statins. These meds deplete the body of nutrients- coq10 for one- so HOPEFULLY taking these supplements with help counteract the " depletion " due to the meds.
I really need to look into more vitamins. Again- I ask- any recommendations?
Well, I've been taking Coq10 for a while now & I can sure tell a difference. I have more energy. I wake up feeling good. Here is an odd one- my skin looks great! I've read Coq10 is supposed to exert an anti-aging effect, it must be true because I'm looking GOOD! LOL!
Anyways, I am now on to my next supplement discovery. Again I ask, any recommendations?
Hi Leslieann. I can't believe no-one has replied to you lol I usually only use the CC board, but have started wandering and here I am!
I take CoQ10 every day, one in the morning and one in the evening. They are softgel, but I can't tell you what they are as I have decanted the last lot into my pill boxes and thrown the bottle! I take quite a lot of supplements, including Evening Primrose Oil, fish oil, calcium, glucosamate (sp?!), multivitamins, green tea extract and a few more that I can't think of right now.
I take quite high doses, and mostly twice a day. I stopped eating properly and exercising for about 5 weeks, and also stopped taking my supplements. It was only then that I realised how much good they were doing me! My skin became dry again, like it was pre-supplement days, my hair was dry and lacking lustre, my energy levels went through the floor, and I generally felt really bad. I have been back on them for a couple of weeks now and I am back to 'normal'!!
One piece of advice I would give to anyone who is trying to eat properly (hate the word 'diet'!) and exercising is to research your supplements. Also, don't buy the mainstream one a day variety, go for the higher doses and take a few a day - they won't kill you! The recommended amount on the labels are purely there to safeguard the manufacturer, your body can deal with a lot more. For some good reading on supplements try googling for body building sites. Trust me, these guys know what they are talking about lol These boards are also invaluable for nutrition and exercise advice. They have certainly helped me.
