Blackmores CoQ10-Omega is a convenient two-in-one formula for a healthy heart. It contains relevant doses of omega-3s as well as CoQ10 to support healthy functioning of the heart. It is ideal for those currently taking fish oil supplement or CoQ10 supplement only and wants to upgrade to more ingredients.
Healthy heart function is dependent on a number of factors – including antioxidant status and the fat in your blood. This formula contains relevant doses of both omega-3 fatty acids and CoQ10 for a healthy heart.
The National Heart Foundation of Australia recommends that we consume 500 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per day from oily fish (2-3 serves a week) or fish oil capsules or enriched food and drinks. Blackmores CoQ10-Omega provides a daily dose of 500 mg of omega-3s and also helps to maintain healthy triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are a type of fat and healthy triglyceride levels in the blood are an important marker of heart health.
CoQ10 is a naturally-occurring vitamin-like nutrient found in every cell of the body. It's found in highest concentrations in hard-working organs with the highest levels of oxygen consumption such as the heart. It is an essential component of the energy-producing processes in cells. CoQ10 has been extensively investigated for its benefits to the heart. It is a potent antioxidant and helps protect against free-radical damage therefore helping to maintain healthy arteries. CoQ10 is produced in the body with only a small amount found in the diet. However our ability to produce CoQ10 declines with age.
A daily dose of 100mg of CoQ10 supports healthy heart function and helps to maintain the body's levels of CoQ10. This product is suitable for all adults concerned with general heart health and is a convenient way to increase levels of these two important nutrients.

Blackmores Joint Formula Advanced to contain glucosamine and a high strength
dose of chondroitin that has been shown to be effective in helping to relieve
joint pain. Glucosamine & chondroitin help to slow the progression of joint
damage, reduce cartilage wear, helps rebuild cartilage and improve joint
mobility when taken long-term. Blackmores Joint Formula Advanced also contains
the minerals manganese and boron which are important components of healthy bones
Glucosamine, chondroitin, manganese and boron, have been specially selected
for the benefits they provide to the joints and can provide relief from various
symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is characterized by joint degeneration and loss of cartilage.
As we get older the ‘wear and tear’ effects of use may cause degenerative
changes in the cartilage. The cartilage becomes more susceptible to breakdown
and damage, which may result in the typical symptoms of osteoarthritis. Ageing
decreases the ability to restore and synthesize normal cartilage.
Glucosamine and sulfate are natural components of the cartilage matrix and
synovial fluid. Glucosamine is a major building block of the substances that
together with protein form the structural units in cartilage. These structural
units, called aggrecan, are important for the elasticity, resilience and
shock-absorbing properties of cartilage. Supplementary glucosamine sulfate as
glucosamine sulfate sodium chloride complex helps reduce cartilage wear,
increase joint mobility and decrease joint stiffness in osteoarthritis.
Clinical trials have shown that 1500 mg glucosamine sulfate as sodium
chloride complex significantly improves pain and functionality in
osteoarthritis. Results show a decrease in pain of 20-41%, and improved
functionality of 21-46%. In addition, glucosamine sulfate may have a long-term
protective effect, acting to reduce cartilage wear and slow the progression of
osteoarthritis. An eight-year study on 275 patients, published in 2008, found
that supplementation with 1500 mg/day of glucosamine sulfate for at least one
year reduced the risk of knee replacement to approximately half that of the
placebo group. The same study also found in a sub-group analysis that patients
who had previously taken glucosamine sulfate used significantly less medications
& health resources for osteoarthritis symptoms.
Chondroitin, like glucosamine, is a natural component of cartilage.
Chondroitin is also involved in the lubrication and nutrition of the joint, and
helps the joints to resist compression.
Manganese and boron are minerals which appear to play roles in joint health.
Manganese is essential for the production of cartilage and bone. Boron plays a
role in the chemical make-up of bones and joints.
The soft paper mask contains lots of transparent liquid essence, with a nice perfume scent and it sticks on well to the face. Each mask comes with a plastic sheet attached to one side of it.
At night, I will put on the mask on my cleansed face and remove it when it's dried up. The essence leaves my face sticky for a while. After the stickiness gone, my face has a smooth coating. I will apply the remaining essence that's left on the foil packet onto my neck and shoulders.
The next morning, when I look into the mirror, my nose is a little oil shiny and my entire face is smooth, moisturized, bright and glowing.
One box contains 10 pieces of individually wrapped 23ml masks.
