Jan has asked me to write a short article about what supplements I take and what activities I per form on a daily basis to achieve and maintain Optimum Health!  Well my first response was that this can’t be done in a short story. It has taken three years of research to come up with a plan for Optimum Health and I am still learning and fine tuning my methods on a daily basis.  In the end I have been persuaded to list the supplements I take and why, and also provide some information on nutrition. 

Optimum Health – my daily plan.

My day always starts with a cup of tea and a CoQ10 Capsule. Why? First of all the cup of tea can vary in type depending on what I am trying to achieve, but its main purpose is to act as carrier for Q10 capsule. In my experience the assimilation of the Q10 is greatly enhanced by taking it with warm liquid and before any food or cold beverage, so a glass of warm water would do just as well.

Now back to the tea. My tea of choice for the last year or so has been a special blend of Essiac tea which has great Cancer fighting attributes, however at times I might have other Herbal teas like Green Tea, Peppermint, or Chamomile, just depending on where I am and what I am trying to achieve.  It is best to stick to a Herbal variety. Black tea, and particularly milk and Sugar should be avoided at all costs, more on that later. 

As for the CoQ10,  I try to stick to a quality brand Gel Cap 150mg or so in strength. There are no hard and fast rules on this but generally speaking , the older you are, the more you need, for example if you under 50 years of age then 100mg would be sufficient, and add 50mg for every 10 years after that. The Gel cap are preferred over the powdered type of capsule, again because it is absorbed more efficiently. There are many brands and types of Q10 on the market and I tend to chop and change a bit so its difficult to recommend just one particular brand. What I can tell you is that a lot of the Q10 varieties available are rubbish and should be avoided.

Optimum Health

My favorite is Ge-ProCoQ10-Max because not only is it a very high quality product, but it contains another powerful oxygenation promoting ingredient, Organic Germanium 132 (a great Pathogen fighter).  It is one of the more expensive Q10 Supplements on the market and will cost you about $1.50 per day, but in my opinion well worth it. You can read more about it here.

Most people experience a significant increase in energy when they start taking Q10, particularly if over 50 years of age. Another thing I see a lot is many people taking some really good supplements and living a good lifestyle but not getting any benefit because their energy levels are being held back due to the lack of Q10. These people experience amazing results once they add a quality a CoQ10 to their daily routine. I believe Q10 to be the most important component in my quest for Optimum Health.
