Ubiquinol & K2 questions

My hubby and I are 50+ and take the ubiquinol form of coq10 -- 100 mg per day. I see Dr. Rosedale recommends regular co-q10 on the list of recommended supplements. Is the ubiquinol form not recommended on his plan? Also, we both optimize or vitamin d levels but have not supplemented with vitamin k2. Most of the k2 supplements appear to be derived from soy and I do not tolerate soy as I have a hypothyroid condition. We do not eat any dairy other than grass-fed, pasteurized butter. We also eat grass fed beef, lamb and daily pastured eggs along with large amounts of non-starchy vegetables. Does Dr. Rosedale consider k2 a necessary supplement?

    Hi Adrienne,

    If my memory is correct Dr. Ron is in the midst of researching the different Q10 forms for the new product line that he is hoping to be released soon. As far as K2, not sure of his thoughts on that.

    Just wondering if Dr. Rosedale has any updated recommendations regarding co-q10 versus ubiquinol version?

    Hi Ken and Adrienne
    Dr. Ron did a lot of research and went over the studies with a fine tooth comb. None of his finding have been clinically 'proven or not". Many of the studies were done with ubiquinol and the powder form of Co-Q10 which is a very unfair comparison. So comparing the oil for oil of both, it is not worth the extra cost as he feels the difference is not that great. However, for older people that have been taking statins for a long long time, and have possible heart conditions, and have never taken any coq10 supplementation then starting of with ubiquinol would be a good idea, but then going on to the oil version of the coq10 would be fine. Also the studies were done on mice that actually have Co-Q9 and not Co-Q10 naturally in their bodies. Please remember these are my words, translating what I heard Dr. Ron saying.

    Yes.. the books.. you guys are going to love them! So over due, taking away the distractions best we can so that Dr. Ron can focus on getting them completed.

    Keep up the great work and thank you all for your support.

    Concerning Dr. Rosedale's new line of supplements that he is working on, I sure do hope that he does not use gelatin unless they are from 100% bovine source. I am Jewish and am not allowed to eat gelatin from porcine source.... Also, if the supplements were in powder form for the cost savings, that would be fantastic!

    I've been hopeful about Dr. Rosedale creating his own line of supplements since I was a patient of his around 1996. Since then, I've given up. He's a brilliant man and I wholeheartedly believe in his science, but why he chooses not to share his knowledge with the world is something I don't understand. I am fairly certain he will never make supplements or write another book. He really knows his stuff-- it's a shame he won't share it. He could help a lot of people.

    Hi Dani,

    Dr. Rosedale shares his knowledge, that is evident by his many seminars that he does globally, his website and here at Support.

    He does not cater to any particular group. It takes a lot of finances to get anything published, btw, he is working on 3 books at this time but there is not a definite publishing date as yet.

    As far as Supplements, again it takes much, financial resources and it is difficult to find a company that will make his Supplements that meet Dr. Rosedale's requirements.

    You mention above: He really knows his stuff - and I could not agree more. Dr. Ron does not throw out a bunch of verbiage like some do, that is one reason the Book that he has had out now for a few years is very much relevant to this day.

    • Dani as a former patient of Dr. Rosedale are you still following the recommendations that he gave you those many years ago?
