Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an antioxidant that is necessary for cells to function properly. Cells use CoQ10 to make the energy they need to grow and stay healthy. CoQ10 can be found, in highest amounts, in the heart, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Levels of CoQ10 decrease as you age. Smoking also depletes CoQ10 from the body. Certain medications (such as Statins) and people with cancer and certain genetic disorders, diabetes, heart conditions, HIV/Aids, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s may have lower levels of CoQ10 as well.
Ask the Pharmacist if CoQ10 supplements are right for you!
The body needs calcium & vitamin D to maintain strong bones. Additionally, calcium is used to help blood vessels contract & expand throughout the body and helps release hormones and enzymes that affect almost every function in the human body. Vitamin D is responsible for helping the body absorb calcium from food and supplements. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis. Calcium may also play a role in heart health, blood pressure control, weight loss and may lower cancer risk.
Ask the Pharmacist if Calcium and Vitamin D supplements are right for you!

Our body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles.
In the short term, getting too little iron does not cause obvious symptoms. Symptoms of iron deficiency anemia include tiredness and lack of energy, GI upset, poor memory and concentration, and less ability to fight off germs and infections or to control body temperature. Infants and children with iron deficiency anemia might develop learning difficulties.
Tell your doctor, pharmacist, & other health care providers about any dietary supplements & medicines you take. They can tell you if those supplements might interact or interfere with your prescription or over-the-counter medicines.
