Coq10/RYR combination capsule

Hello,

I know that RYR has been discussed here before and I did review those threads. A lot was also mentioned on Coq10 Enzyme.

My question is:
Is anyone on this board using the Coq10/RYR that is combined in one capsule?
I found out that my brand of RYR, that has been successful for me in lowering my numbers also offers the coq10 and RYR in a combination.

The combined capsule, Coq10 is 60mg/RYR is 600mg.

Cutting down on pills or capsules would be favorable for me.

Thanking you for this board.

Re: Coq10/RYR combination capsule

Hi Pat007,

What brand of RYR are you currently taking?
I need to know the total monacolin content per 600mg capsule, and will then reply.

Re: Coq10/RYR combination capsule

HI Lord Taff,

Been reading some posts from you
I didn't think we could do brand names on here, but it's the P. Pride. I think it has a little less then the N.Plus.

Thanks a bunch!

Re: Coq10/RYR combination capsule

Brand names are no problem here. Just cannot name web sites or produce links to sites.

Standby, I will look into Puritans Pride 600mg for you.

Watch this space.

Re: Coq10/RYR combination capsule

Hi Agent Pat 007,

OK, I cannot find any technical data for that particular manufacturer's RYR or Coenzyme Q-10 products on any US or UK web sites. Actually one cannot even buy that product in the UK, including Puffin Island.

If that brand of RYR is proving successful for yourself, then stick with it. (I would strongly advise you contact the manufacturer to clarify whether this product is, citrinin free)

However, when taking COq10, also be careful.

If you have read some of my threads you will know that there are two manufactured forms of COq10.
a: Natural CoQ10 (trans-isomer) is preferred because it is fermented from yeast and is identical to our body’s own CoQ10 and is better assimilated.
b: Synthetic CoQ10 (CIS form) is chemically processed using tobacco and while cheaper, is considered to be impure and difficult to absorb.

That particular manufacturer appears to sell two forms of Coq10, Q-Zen and Q-Sorb. I would say that the Q-zen falls into the trans-isomer category and the Q-sorb into the CIS.

Wait for it.....yes, you are probably thinking the same thing, the RYR/Coq10 combined capsule contains the Q-Sorb. If this is correct then it's a waste of money consuming it.

Pat, COq10 is manufactured by the body and used by the whole body, including the brain. Do your body a favour and use a product that has been well researched. Use the best and purist product on the market, manufactured by Kaneka of Japan, and sold by Healthy Origins. 150 x 100mg capsules, of which you only need one per day. I import into the UK at $28.99.

I know it's not the answer you wanted to hear, but it's the best advice you'll hear.

Take care and the best of luck.

ps: For reading members, what were your cholesterol numbers pre-RYR and now please?


Lord Taff of Puffin Island.

Re: Coq10/RYR combination capsule

HI and thanks,

I'm not even sure if I need coq10 at this stage, I will revisit this in the coming year.

I did not bring home my numbers the past few years until this year in July. But I do remember the Cholesterol.

2004: Cholesterol: 238. I do not have the complete Lipid Profile BUT I was upset with the 238 and some of the other numbers. Not wanting to go on Lipitor my physician suggested RYR.

2005: After 3 months on RYR my Cholesterol was 173 and here again I do not have the complete reading but all the others numbers I remember he said were "great" and keep it up.

2006: Cholesterol was 168 and all numbers others were still good.

July 2007: I have the complete report:

The ranges for this are in the parenthesis.

TC = 217 Little high ( <200 )
HDL= 62 OK ( > 35 )
Tri = 196 right at borderline ( <200 )
LDL = 116 ( <160 if low risk )
(<130 if 2 risk factors)
(<100 if high risk)
Tc/HDL 3.5 ( Heart Risk Ratio 4.0)

Today, I went to a Health Screening for a vascular study and they did a complete lipid. Their ranges were different than my Physician's but I suppose if my physician had done the Lipid profile it would have come back the same. Maybe different numbers but the same results.

Today 12-10-07:

Chol. =197 (<200)
HDL = 31 (>40 )
Tri = 177 (<150)
LDL = 131 (<100)
TC/HDL = 6.3 (TC/HDL 4.5 )
Glucose = 91

Today's report is not surprising to me as it has a tramatic time since July. I was taking care of my Mom and she did pass away. Since then my appitite has been lousy with me eating way too many sweets, hardly no veggies but lots of cheese and snacks along with candy. I have not felt like drinking wine but I have done a lot of fruit juice( all day long). I also have not felt like cooking.
But, I see I need to get back on track!
Maybe today was a wake up call to put some of the grieving behind me and start to move in a more positive direction. I do hope to have 30 or so years left.

Thank you again.
