Co-Q-Omega by Purity Products is a dietary supplement designed to promote healthy brain function. Additional benefits, as mentioned by the manufacturing company Purity Products include support for normal cardiovascular and arterial health and support for a beautiful healthy skin.

Purity Products is a company founded in 1993 by Jahn Levin in Great Neck, New York. The company is currently headquartered in Plainview, U.S.A. The company’s main goal is to provide individuals a with high-quality nutritional supplements designed to improve health. Product lines include special men and women health products, sports and energy products, and formulas targeting specific conditions.
Co-Q-Omega includes the following ingredients: Omega-3 fatty acids EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), Other Omega-3s, CoQ10, highly refined and concentrated Omega-3 Fish Oil, capsule (gelatin, glycerin, purified water, caramel, titanium dioxide), coenzyme Q10, beeswax, soy lecithin (soy), natural lemon/lime flavor, proprietary antioxidant blend (consisting of rosemary extract, ascorbyl palmitate and natural tocopherols(soy)) and soybean.
Co-Q-Omega supports healthy brain function through the action of two main active ingredients: the naturally occurring vitamin-like substance Q10 (or Coenzyme Q10) and Omega-3 (with its two essential fatty acids EPA and DHA).
CoQ10 is present in the majority of human body cells, particularly in the mitochondria, known as “the power plant” of the cell. Hence it plays an essential function in the process of energy production. This explains why high concentrations of the coenzyme are found in the organs with the highest energy requirements such as the liver, the heart, and the kidneys. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated its beneficial effects on the heart: it improves the heart’s pumping ability, blood circulation, increases tolerance to exercise and improves the heart’s muscle tone.
Recent research has shown CoQ10 has powerful antioxidant properties and may protect cells from free-radical damage, including brain cells. Coenzyme Q10 is considered a generally safe substance, but overdosing can cause gastrointestinal problems.
Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids which have blood thinning properties. Omega-3 helps reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke or coronary artery disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive functions such as memory and performance and behavioral function. Additionally, EPA has been shown to have a positive effect on alleviating depression, although an exact connection has not been established yet.

Co-Q-Omega is a blend of Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA and Coenzyme Q10. In the light of recent research which shows the benefits these ingredients have on the brain and mental performance (in terms of memory and concentration), we may assume that the product will deliver on its benefits claims. Consumer reviews also mention the increased effectiveness of the product, with very little inconveniences (such as the size of the capsules). No side effects or other drug interactions are mentioned by the manufacturer either.
However, in rare cases Co-Q-Omega side effects have been noticed; therefore we recommend you ask a healthcare provider’s opinion on whether to start using Co-Q-Omega or not.
