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?
