McKane’s stocks nutrients that can help your heart

McKane’s Pharmacy in Ballina is stocking Revive Q10 plus, which will help with cardiovascular issues.

In a recent article in The Irish Times, Galway-based vascular surgeon, Sherif Sultan is a “ firm believer in applying nutrigenomics to tackle depletion of co-enzyme Q10. Nutrigenomics involves the study of the impact of foods and their constituents on ‘gene expression’. Certain nutrients can mimic natural recovery or self-repair through a ‘nutrient-gene interaction’. The nutrients coenzyme Q10 and L-arginine were Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, and the latter compound is regarded as a leading amino acid in cardiovascular repair and regeneration.”

David O’Connor, a Galway-based financial consultant who was involved in sales of an American L-arginine product, heard about Sultan’s theory and decided to investigate further. O’Connor teamed up with fellow Galwegian Liam Salmon to form a company that is producing a food supplement containing all the elements of Sultan’s ‘wishlist’.

The result, Revive Q10 Plus, is manufactured in sachet form by ABC Nutrition in Shannon, Co Clare, as a single water-soluble supplement.

Not only does it comprise coenzyme Q10 and L-arginine, but other key ingredients include L-carnitine, magnesium, citrulline, glutamine, vitamins B6, B12, C, D3 and K2, along with D-ribose and folic acid. O’Connor says the Revive Q10-Plus supplement is already selling in a number of pharmacies and health food shops.

In Mayo it is stocked by McKane’s Pharmacy Ballina (see ad ) which can also supply by mail order. Just phone 096 21698 with your payment details, and McKane’s will send next day delivery to your address.
