CO Q10

Does anyone in the UK know where is the best and cheapest place to get CO Q10 tablets from .I went in to Boots Chemist and could not believe how expensive they were.

Quite a few people appear to have good results from them. I wondered whether any of the companies who are always sending me booklets regarding vitamins, etc. stocked them. But just when I want one nobody is sending me one.

Sue, Please take this for what it is worth,but we have had warnings, here in the U.S., about checking the manufacturer before buying COQ10. It seems that the active ingredients are quite costly which has led to the substitution of synthetic substances which can be less effective, or even totally ineffective. I have checked the two bottles I have and find that the distributor is listed but the manufacturer is not.

Good luck.

Ron. Really appreciate your warning. It does not sound as though the substitution of synthetic substances is something I would want to take.

I may give this one a miss for the time being until I do some more research.

Thanks for your comments.

Sue :-)

Hi, you can get Efamol Efalex omega oil capsules on prescription, my son has had them for about 8 years.

When I read this on Wikipedia

"A 2002 study in 80 Parkinson's disease patients found 1200 mg/day reduced the progression by 44%.[70][71] A phase III trial of 1200 mg/d and 2400 mg/d ran until August 2011. This study was terminated and the summary concluded: "The investigational drug is unlikely to demonstrate efficacy over placebo for this indication. However, no safety issues were discovered."[72]

I stopped shopping for it.

Thank you. I think I will take your advice. Don't need to take any more pills unless really necessary.
