Quotes for Your Life

"Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome."
Samuel Johnson

"You cannot change your life by changing your life. You can only change your life if you change your thinking."

I get letters (bolds and links added by Dr. Z)

"I have congestive heart failure. At the recommendation of Dr. Z, I have been taking Co Q100 for over one year. My heart function has improved by 25%. My doctors said they have never seen this happen!"

Bill K., Castro Valley, California


"I have had gum problems for the last 20 years. I happened to come across two articles by Dr. Thomas Rau/Paracelsus Klinik in Switzerland and ordered the products recommended here. After two weeks of the remedies (Pleo Art A drops and Pleo Leptu capsules), you kindly forwarded to me, the pockets around my teeth have vanished. I am finding it amazing that the dental medical profession is ignorant about candida infections that many of their patients have. I have also been taking Co Q100 supplements together with fish oil capsules to boost my energy.

I am very grateful for your support and will send people your way to get the professional recommendations they need to stay healthy."

Why CoQ10 matters

Coenzyme Q10 is an essential part of normal cell function. We know that all cells require the presence of adequate oxygen and balanced blood sugar so they can make the energy required for their functioning. Coenzyme Q10, also called CoQ10, is the cofactor that connects oxygen with glucose to make cell energy, which we call ATP.

Coenzyme Q10 is present in the mitochondria (energy factories) of every cell. Without sufficient coenzyme Q10 levels present, the cells cannot make sufficient ATP. The cells become fatigued, and stop working properly. This leads to abnormal brain and organ.

  • Every cell of the human body needs it!

Some cells of the human body require more energy than others.

Why? Because some cells are always working, they never rest. The cells of your brain and the cells of your heart of very clear examples. Both your brain and your heart are active, even while you're sleeping.

Understandably, the need for Coenzyme Q10 is greatest in these types of cells. Here is a short list of cells with high metabolism/energy requirements:

  • nerve cells of the brain (neurons)
  • nerve cells of the spinal cord and peripheral nerves
  • heart muscle
  • gingiva (gums)
  • immune system
  • gastric mucosa (stomach lining)
  • retina of the eye

There is evidence that Co-Q100 may be useful as supportive therapy in

  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
  • Parkinson's
  • Alzheimer's
  • Diabetes
  • Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Gastric Ulcers
  • Immune Dysfunction
  • Visual disturbances - glaucoma - macular degeneration

Coenzyme Q10 appears to inhibit the oxidation of LDL cholesterol - much more efficiently than vitamin E. Consequently supplementing with Co-Q-100 may contribute to the slowing of atheroscerosis.

There is epidemiologic evidence in humans that uniformly shows a gradual decline in Coenzyme Q10 levels after the age of twenty. Supplementing with Co-Q-100 may very well contribute to the slowing of aging and age related degenerative diseases.

The other essential factor to make cell energy is of course Oxygen/O2. Without adequate Oxygen your cells cannot work. Read about Dr. Z's Personal Portable Oxygen Bar.

Why use Co-Q100 by Thorne Research versus CoQ10 in powder form?

The big issue with all nutritional supplements: How much is actually absorbed from your digestive tract into the bloodstream?

The answer to this question depends on two things:

1. On the one hand the absorption depends on the health of your digestive system - poor digestive function means of course poor absorption of nutrients, including poor absorption of nutritional supplements. Helping my patients and online clients improve and optimize their digestive function is a cornerstone of my clinical work.

2. On the other hand, and as important, is the form in which the supplements are administered. Let's look at CoQ10 for a moment.

CoQ10 is a fat-soluble nutrient, and research has demonstrated much better absorption of CoQ10 when it is delivered in oil.

For this very reason Thorne Research created Co-Q100 in Softgels contains 100 mg of pure CoQ10 in each capsule, with rice bran oil added to facilitate absorption, and is provided in Thorne's new, fish gelatin softgel capsule.


Try Co-Q100 by Thorne Research.
