Feature Summary

This comprehensive combination of CoQ10 and the omega-3 fatty acids EPA/DHA supports normal cognitive function and helps maintain cardiovascular health.* Both CoQ10 and EPA/DHA help maintain endothelial function, support healthy arteries, help maintain blood pressure already within the normal range, and support overall cardiovascular health.*1–5 

CoQ10 has an instrumental role in oxidative phosphorylation and mitochondrial bioenergetics, critical to neuronal health and supporting the mitochondrial function that underlies numerous facets of health, including neurological health.*6 Additionally, recent data highlights CoQ10’s emerging role in helping to organize the body’s response to cellular damage, clear cellular debris, maintain healthy insulin sensitivity, and support neurocognitive function.*7–9 Meta-analyses of randomized trials have shown that CoQ10 and EPA/DHA supplementation may help support normal levels of C-reactive protein, TNF-alpha, and IL-6.*10–12 CoQ10 serum levels have also been associated with neurological and neurocognitive support.*13,14

OptiMega-3 Q10 also has beneficial-strength pharmaceutical-grade EPA/DHA, shown to support both cardiac and vascular health, including arterial health.*15–19 Omega-3 fatty acids have been associated to help maintain myocardial and ventricular health, in addition to help organize the body’s response to cellular damage.*20–23 EPA/DHA support cognitive function through multiple mechanisms, as both are indispensable to neuronal membranes, and to help support neurological and neurocognitive health.*24,25

Drug Interactions

Because fish oil may have  an antithrombotic effect, caution is advised for those on anticlotting, antiplatelet, or anticoagulant medications, or those at high risk of bleeding. However, a multinational randomized and controlled trial found that fish oil did not increase perioperative bleeding.26,27 In amounts greater than 3 g per day, hyperglycemia has been observed in diabetics and those with hypertriglyceridemia, close monitoring of patients on antidiabetic medication is recommended.28 CoQ10 resembles vitamin K structurally, and there is a potential interaction possible for those taking the anticoagulant Coumadin. Close monitoring of the INR is recommended with CoQ10 introduction in these patients.
