Anyone use Omega Q plus from Dr Sinatra?

Hello,

Has anyone used Omega Q plus?

I am a 28 y/o female, 5'1" and 115 lbs. I eat well and exercise occasionally.
My total cholesterol is 285.
Triglycerides 119
HDL 61
LDL 200

My dr wants to put me on meds and i would like to try to avoid that. she suggested taking coq10 and fish oil. I did some research and found Omega Q plus by dr Sinatra.

Wondering if anyone has taken this and if it has been successful for you?

thank you =]

CoQ10 Supplements, by Dr Sinatra

I've been taking it for about a month.  I just saw a new site that they launched.  I've seen some improvements, I feel much better.  Just make sure you check with your doctor prior to taking it.  From what I've read, you shouldn't take this product with statin drugs.

Not sure where you read about NOT taking this with statin drugs, but from what I know it is important to take CoQ10 to counter the side effects of statins, especially on the heart.  My wife is a nurse and would support this as she takes both,  I have great concerns about statins and feel much better about her taking the statins along with this supplement.

Has anyone seen the improvements that they claim on thier website? it would be good to know if it is what they say it is. Or is it "snake oil"?

Just asking a question.

I am 44 and in good health. I have been using Omega Q Plus for four months. I have not had a doctor evaluation since I began taking the supplement, so can only speak to my personal feelings. I researched the supplement extensively, Dr. Sinatra and Healthy Directions as well. I believe them to not only be very legitimate, but the researchers and suppliers of some of the purest and best absorbed (i.e., most effective) supplements in the market.

Omega Q Plus has a unique form of CoQ10 which makes it more easily absorbed (according to the literature). It also has a robust dose of a B12, which I largely attribute to my general increase in energy since taking the supplement. I must say, this is the first supplement I have taken and which I actually "feel" better -- more alert, more energetic, just more "correct" and "in balance". Again, I would be curious to see what a check-up reveals, but for me I feel it is an essential part of my daily regimen.

Do you take, or have you heard of "Standard Process" vitamins,etc? I just read on Quackwatch.com that they're a rip-off.  Any comments? Thank you!

I take Standard Processing Labs vitamins and they are the ONLY ones that do NOT give me a tummy ache. They are outstanding, I do not take any other product but them, As to the CoQ10, yes, the one Dr Sinatra speaks of is excellent. Everyone needs it especially if you are on Statin drugs.

I took 2 Omega Q Plus per day for 6 months.  Before starting, my HDL and LDL levels were OK but my Triglyceride level was quite high at over 300.  After 6 months on Omega Q Plus, my Triglyceride level was down to 100 (normal), and the HDL/LDL levels were about the same (normal).  The only other change I made was that I cut down from about 7 eggs a week to 3.  Instead of the other 4 eggs, I switched to egg whites.  So, it appears that the Omega Q Plus did help lower my Triglyceride level down to normal.  I did not notice any increase in my energy level which is supposed to be another benefit of the supplements.  I believe they helped me, and I will continue to take them.

I am a 63 year old female, and I have been on Omega Q Plus for almost 6 months.  After 2.5 months my cholesterol dropped 60 points, my triglycerides dropped 100.  I also take two 500 mgs of cinnamon capsules each day. I do have a lot more energy than I used to,   My last labs were slightly higher, but I blame that on all the junk I ate over the holidays. One more thing though, my sugar which was somewhat elevated in the past, came in at a normal level. Very happy with them - so is my doctor,

I had a severe reaction to Statin drugs in 2009..Almost Completely paralyzed; still going to PT.  I began taking Dr. Sinatras Q10 about one month ago - 4 caps per day - and feel so much better.  More energy, less muscle weakness, NO muscle pain. We are trying to lower the Prednisone dosage, and I feel I am finally on the right track with this supplement.  I highly recommend the Q10 Plus....I have repeat blood work on 8/1, and am anxious for the results.

I am 67 and still pretty full of myself, but I have low HDL (30.1) and need to get it elevated. I have also been told I have moderate blockage in my corotid arteries (could be erelated?) I refuse to take synthetic chemicals that seem to always create more (and often worse) problems for me. I have started exercising more and I eat a healthy diet. But obviously, I am not doing something correctly! I am considering Omega Q Plus.

I am 74 and have a long history of medium-level cardiovascular problems. I was on FOUR heart meds (Crestor, Lisinopril, Zetia and Niaspan ... plus Aspirin) for about 15 years but I really wanted to get off of these. They had reduced my cholesterol from about 290 to 190 which made my doctor happy. I was also about 50 pounds overweight and was borderline for diabetes.
My wife (God bless her) got involved with the "BodyByVi Challenge" in mid-June this year. It involves protein shakes that provide a full nutrition profile. In less than 3 months, I have lost 25 pounds. As of last week, my cholesterol was 124. I feel great.
I DO INCLUDE OMEGA Q PLUS in my daily routine along with a good fish oil, Vitamin D3, and a multi-vitamin ... so I can't give all the credit to the ViSalus "BodyByVi" program. But the full combination sure works well for me.
I'm not trying to sell the ViSalus program, but you might want to check it out if weight loss, or fitness is an issue with you: http://www.FromFatToFitForFree.com

I have beeen taking Omega Q+ since 2008 & it def. helps. I have extreme gout bouts & since taking my joints are much better, I feel stronger, & am more energrtic. I am 37 yrs & decided a healthy heart is the answer to all that ails. I have studied many different homeopathic 'drugs' & Dr. Sinatra is very respected. He is a heart doc. He makes no claims that cannot be supported. I feel his product is the best bang for the buck & the only downside is you can't buy it at your local stores. I also have implemented Orac12 for I do not eat enough fruits & veggies. I have been a body builder when I was in my early 20s & now I do not really watch what I eat to the point I did before. I am just aware many people in my family have diabetes & trigliceride issues. The answer is to KEEEP YOUR HEART PUMPING EFFICIENTLY & VERY STRONG! thanks, hope this helps.

I was taking 60 mgs of zocor statin and it almost crippled me. i stopped taking it, and started taking 60 mgs of coq10 every other day and feel a lot better. I have not tried Omega Q plus, but it sounds promising. I will certainly mention it to my Doctor at THE NEXT APPOINTMENT

I take the Omega Q Plus by Dr. Sinatra.  Had not been consistent with it daily as I am now after I got my Cholesterol checked.  My Low density was down and my Hds were up and tris were almost 200 below what they had been in years.  I was elated over the tri report because it had been in the 400's in the past. Everything else checked out perfect.  I will continue to take Omega 3 plus for another 3 months, and have it checked again.  I've also changed my diet to less saturated fats, meats, etc.more to the plant based food, also cut out fast foods, eating out  occasionally, and junk foods, such as chips, cookies, etc.  When I do eat those, I limit my consumption according to the labels watching the sodium, sugar & sat. fat not every day..  Hope this helps.

I've been taking Dr. Sinatras' Omega Q Plus for over a year now,
and would NOT be without it.

When I stop taking it for a few days, I notice how sluggish & tired
I feel.  I think it's a wonderful product.

I wonder what Dr. Oz would say about this product.  I have 3 heart stents, plus 2 more areas of concern for blockage.  My blood test are crazy even though I have lost weight and take 2000 mg of Omega 3s everyday.  My doctor is concerned that my triglycerides keep climbing even though I have extremely cut back on carbs.  I need something besides the statins I am taking but I am afraid to take something I order on the internet.

This is a complicated subject. Should I or should I not take CoQ10? The correct answer to the cholesterol and Triglyceride problem is eating right, exercising and proper weight. Most of us don't live in "that" kind of reality.
I went to my family Dr. about 4 years ago for a blood check. My Cholestrol was 235, and my Triglycerides were 586. Needless to say my Dr. put me on statin drugs. I didn't like the idea of the statins because of all the bad things I had read and heard about them. (My wife is also a nurse) I did some checking around and found out that RED YEAST RICE will lower Cholesterol and Omega-3 fish oil will lower Triglycerides. I bought some CHOLEST FACTORS and fish oil from our GNC store. I stopped taking the statins and started doing the more natural treatment. I was taking six capsules of Cholest factors a day and six 900 mg capsules of omega-3 fish oil a day. In what I believe was about a 6 month period my Cholesterol dropped  to 168, and my triglycerides went to 193. Sounds like I hit the mother load doesn't it. Let me explain the quandary. I have been on this regiment for 3 years now. But, A new study is out linking high doses of omega-3 fish oil with an aggresive (aggressive) type of prostate cancer. Don't take my word for it, Check for yourself. I was taking 5400 mg of fish oil a day to keep my Triglycerides in check. Now a new study says I am putting myself at risk for aggresive (aggressive) prostate cancer!! I cut back to 3 capsules a day. It's not enough. The FDA and the Doctors can't seem to agree on how much omega-3 fish oil is to much, which leaves the consumer who wants to go all natural twisting in the wind. Their are checks and balances in the body. To much of anything is not good for you. The body has to process everything we swallow. The liver and kidneys are strainers. They take the beating for our over consumption of anything good or bad. The FDA doesn't do studies on supplements because they don't consider them to be a drug. RED YEAST RICE Used to have a natural statin in it. The Chinese used it for centuries as a drug. Once the FDA discovered red rice had natural statins in it, They forbide the manufactoring of it till the statin was removed. The statins were removed and now Red Rice is called a supplement and is legal to sell again. Cholest Factor with Red Yeast Rice is statin free and it still has enough natural ingrediens in it to lower cholestrol. You just have to take six capsules a day to do it.The FDA is both good and bad.CoQ10 needs to be studied. But. If they do. You may not like the results. It's a crap shoot. I don't know how much I trust Dr. Sinatra. Is he a snake oil salesman, or a real expert in the calamari's (or squid.) Has anyone had a doctors examination with blood tests and the works? Someone who has taken this CoQ10 for several years and has scientific proff it works and is safe to use? Are their any medical Doctors out their who would care to weigh in on this? I was assured by my own Dr that large doses of omega-3 were safe. Now I find out differant. I don't want to compound the problem by taking CoQ10 only to find out it was more dangerous than high triglycerides...

Life Extension Foundation has issued an extension rebuttal to the story of Omega 3s causing aggressive prostate cancer.  I only skimmed it, but check it out for yourself on their website.  lef  .  org

The gist of it as I understand is that the results make no sense in light of the actual data studied.  Another junk science report.

A study was done at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. It stated Omega-3s were associated with a 43% increased risk for prostate cancer overall, and a 71% increase risk in aggressive prostate cancer said lead study author Theodore Brasky, a research assistant professor at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center in Columbus, who was at Hutchinson at the time of the study. Aggressive prostate cancer is often fatal he said. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish such as salmon, trout and fresh tuna and fish oil capsules have been reputed to have health benefits because of their anti-inflammatory properties.These new research findings were published online July 11th in the Journal of the National Cancer Institude. Omega-3 fatty acids may have properties that aren't well understood and in HIGH DOSES could cause oxidative stress, which can lead to DNA damage, possibly increasing the risk for prostate cancers. And their you have it. Maybe, could be, possibly, perhaps. Where is the SOLID proof that omega-3s in large doses can kill you! What do they consider HIGH DOSES? For those of us with high Triglyceride counts, it makes a difference. Is CoQ10 the answer to Omega-3s? Can You take it in place of Omega's without worrying about prostate cancer? I wonder.....

Try 500 mg to 1000 mg of niacin, ( not the "no flush niacin" because it will not help your cholesterol problem).  Take with one aspirin 15min before you take the niacin and chase the niacin dose immediately with about 6  to 8oz of unsweetened apple sauce.  This prevents (or severely limits) the flushing sensation of the niacin which occurs about 3 to 5 hours after the dosage.  This should quickly elevate you HDL and Lower you LDL  cholesterol to acceptable levels within 1-3 weeks.  You must be consistent with the daily niacin dose.  This is best taken at bed time so you can possibly sleep through the flushing sensations until they subside.  After I started this regimen the flushing completely vanished in about 2 weeks as my body adapted to the dosage.  So now I take it daily and at any time convenient to me with no flushing.  I can almost assure you that your HDL/LDL ratio will correct itself after a week or two on this treatment.  
As always, check with your doctor before starting any regimen just to be safe.  This works, and don't let the flushing denture you, because it is only uncomfortable for a short time and will eventually subside as your body adapts to the regimen. The payoff of high HDL is worth it.

I have been reading Dr Sinatra's newsletters and taking a few of his supplements for close to 14 years. These days I am taking his multivitamin, a special form ("MK7") of vitamin K-2, and a version of his Omega Q Plus (With Resveretrol).  I have been taking both a fish oil supplement and CoQ10 supplement from his outfit for that whole time.  I have taken an average of 2500 mg (2.5 g) of fish oil and 50 - 100 mg CoQ10 a day over this time.  I maintain low triglycerides (between 38 and 100), average 180 - 205 total cholesterol, 60 - 75 HDL, and my weight has remained stable and normal for my height.  So, while they go up and down with the variability of life factors, these numbers remain good.  I have excellent energy.  I wouldn't want to be without the Omega Q Plus, or, at least, without any fish oil and CoQ10, in my life.  The fish oil, along with another anti-inflammatory (curcumin) and exercise, has also prevented my lumbar arthritis from worsening over the years.  Use of Omega Q Plus, along with the magnesium it contains, has also very much quieted occasional heart palpitations ('fluttering').  I very much trust Dr S.  He is exceptionally competent.  He has shown over and over how much attention he pays to the health and welfare of "the little guy".  His mailings are 'over the top' and make him look like 'just another quack' but he and his intentions are the real deal.
