Nordic Naturals launches Nordic CoQ10 Ubiquinol

BY Michael Johnsen

WATSONVILLE, Calif. — Nordic Naturals on Tuesday launched Nordic CoQ10 Ubiquinol, formulated with 100 mg of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ-10) ubiquinol in a soft gel delivery format. Shown to support cardiovascular health and the transformation of food into energy, ubiquinol is the active antioxidant form of CoQ-10, a fat-soluble molecule found in nearly every cell, tissue, and organ in the body, the supplier stated.

“While it is not an essential fatty acid, CoQ-10 is similar to omega-3 essential fatty acids in that it affects health on the cellular level,” stated Keri Marshall, Nordic Naturals chief medical officer. “Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ-10 and is more bioavailable than conventional CoQ-10 supplements, which must be converted to ubiquinol in order to be utilized by the body. Because the body’s ability to convert CoQ-10 into the ubiquinol form diminishes with age, Nordic CoQ10 Ubiquinol is ideal for anyone over the age of 40 looking for extra antioxidant support.”

Nordic CoQ10 Ubiquinol is also suitable for people who may be deficient in CoQ-10, for individuals with cardiovascular conditions, or those taking statin drugs, which is known to deplete CoQ-10 levels.

Sierra Research Labs issues third license to amino acid compound amid increased demand

BY Alaric DeArment

NEW YORK — The developer of an amino acid compound is issuing a new license for the product.

Sierra Research Labs announced Tuesday that it would issue the license to Novex Biotech, which will sell it as Growth Factor-9 through GNC, The Vitamin Shoppe and Lucky Vitamin. The company has already issued licenses for SanMedica International, which sells it under the trade name SeroVital-hgh to retailer Ulta and will soon sell it to Neiman Marcus, and Limitless Worldwide, which sells it as Thrive-hGh. Sierra said it was issuing the license to the "anti-aging" compound amid increased demand driven by media coverage.

"We were convinced that issuing two licenses to the compound would be more than enough to meet consumer demand, but with all the recent media coverage, sales have gone through the roof, and our suppliers have been having trouble keeping up," Sierra communications specialist Kerry Pack said.
