Nature’s Sunshine Blog

Have you visited the Nature’s Sunshine Blog recently? There’s a link to it from the NSP website on the top bar, but it’s easy to miss. We use the articles for our own blog and to send to people who request information about a certain product. Of course, we don’t send a link, since they would then most likely shop from the main NSP website, but you can cut and paste the article into an email as I’ve done here to provide good information on a product or topic. Co-Q10 is a great supplement for energy and the heart.

Co-Q10 Vital for Cellular Energy & Cardiovascular Health As technology advances, we learn more about the human body and how it works. We also gather details about how supplements are utilized in the body. This type of advancement can lead to innovative change and newer, better products, like our Co-Q10 50 mg softgels.

Co-Q10 is a vitamin-like substance present in every cell in the body. It is vital for cellular energy, cardiovascular health and longevity. Co-Q10 helps reduce oxidative stress in all cells throughout the body and especially contributes to the health of the heart, kidneys, liver and pancreas. Usually after age 30, the body’s production of Co-Q10 declines, which creates a need for supplementation in some people. Co-Q10 material is often found in a crystalline state, which is less- absorbable by the body and not as likely to have the optimal cellular energy, cardiovascular health and longevity benefits. Some manufacturers begin their processes with a crystalfree form of Co-Q10. But after processing, the Co-Q10 re-crystallizes inside their softgel capsule. To avoid this, certain manufacturers use solvents in their products. But these solvents may interfere with absorption or cause other issues.

Nature’s Sunshine’s new formula uses a patented lipid blend to keep Co- Q10 from crystallizing and yields maximum bioavailability. Therefore, giving you the most cellular energy, cardiovascular health and longevity for your money. Take 1 softgel with a meal daily for circulatory support.

Ours is up to eight times more absorbable than the crystal version! A double-blind human clinical trial showed that Nature’s Sunshine’s Co- Q10 50 mg was at least eight times more readily absorbed than competing products. Our 50 mg crystalfree liquid is equivalent to 400 mg of co-Q10 powder. Are you getting your money’s worth?

It is broken into four main sections: disease overviews, treatment options, drug information (includes information on prescription drugs, over the counter drugs, herbs and nutritional supplements) and clinical trials.

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia and has become the largest reference source on the Internet. Type in the name of an herb, supplement, health condition, etc., and you will be guided to entries with extensive information. One word of caution: Anyone with computer access to Wikipedia can edit the entries. As a result, the entries are quite up to date, but there can also be significant misinformation.
