omega Qplus imageMy Omega Q Plus with Resveratrol review may help you decide if this anti-aging supplement can improve your memory, prevent heart disease, and help you fight wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Are you starting to notice that your body just isn’t the well-oiled machine that it was 10 years ago? If so, you’re probably under the false assumption that slowing down is just a normal part of aging that you simply can’t avoid. The truth is that you don’t have to just deal with it; you can slow it down with Omega Q Plus.

This all-natural supplement combines several of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients available on the market today, and it’s the only product that I could find that offers all of them in one single pill. By now, if you’re really interested in feeling younger and getting your pep back, you’re probably asking yourself what these ingredients are.

Don’t worry; I’m going to discuss them at length and by the end of this Omega Q Plus review, you’ll know exactly why this product is a staple in my health and anti-aging routine. First though, let’s look at why you slow down as you age.

Where Did My Energy Go?

As far as I’m concerned, one of the most frustrating things about getting older is the loss of energy. I started noticing as I got older that I just didn’t have the endurance that I did when I was younger and I needed naps just to get through the day. I was sluggish, and my brain was foggy. I’ve studied natural healing and natural health for about thirty years, but when aging started to show it’s colors, I started looking for a solution.
[hcshort id=”5″]

I discovered that nearly all of your energy is produced at the cellular level but that as you age, cell production slows. As a matter of fact, it’s not just energy production that’s controlled at the cellular level. So are collagen and elastin production, disease prevention, free-radical control, and basically everything else that keeps you young and healthy. One of the key components that keep your cells functioning is an enzyme called Co-enzyme Q10, or CoQ10 for short.

CoQ10 – One of Omega-Q’s Integral Ingredients

CoQ10 is naturally produced by your body and is one of the worker bees that keep your cells operating optimally, but production of this vital enzyme slows as you age. The result of this is decreased energy, suppressed immunity, and poor health in general. Without CoQ10, your cells can’t carry out even the most basic metabolic functions.

The good news here is that you can successfully replenish your depleted CoQ10 levels by supplementing. Even better news is that Omega Q has Hydo Q-Sorb®, the most highly absorbable form of CoQ10. As a matter of fact, it’s eight times more bio-available than other forms. As if this isn’t exciting enough, remember that I mentioned a combination of anti-aging powerhouses? CoQ10 isn’t the only super-ingredient in Omega Q.

What is Resveratrol?

We’ll start with the most obvious added supplement: resveratrol. According to Mayo Clinic Staff (you should read the whole article, really) , “Resveratrol might be a key ingredient in red wine that helps prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces “bad” cholesterol and prevents blood clots.” One of the most powerful antioxidants known to scientists, resveratrol is found in such foods as grapes, blueberries, cranberries, and peanuts.

The plants actually produce it to ward off bacteria and disease, and it has the same effect in the human body. Here are just a few of the amazing benefits of resveratrol:

  • Heart health
  • Fights the signs of aging
  • Actually kills some types of cancer cells
  • Promotes cellular energy
  • Supports a healthy immune system
  • Supports brain function
  • Promotes cell replication

As you can see, resveratrol has significant health benefits and should, as far as I’m concerned, be part of everyone’s healthcare routine. Dr. Steven Sinatra, the brain behind this amazing supplement, apparently agrees with me because he added it to an already-incredible product.

What Else is In It?

There are several more really fabulous ingredients in Omega Q Plus With Resveratrol. They include:

  • DHA-rich calamarine Omega-3 Supplement
  • L-Carnitine
  • Folic acid
  • Vitamins B6 and B12

All of these Omega Q Plus ingredients contribute to your overall well-being, but the calamarine is almost a necessity, especially if you’re not a fish or greens eater. You need omega-3’s in your diet on a regular basis because they promote everything from heart health to improved vision and brain function. They’re one of the few nutrients essential to our survival that our bodies don’t make in even the smallest amounts.

Again, Dr. Sinatra put some real research into this product because the calamarine form of Omega-3 offers all of fish oil’s benefits with none of the side effects. One of the biggest complaints I had with even the best omega-3 fish oil is that you get the “fishy” aftertaste but that isn’t the case with the calamarine, which comes from South American squid instead of from fish. It’s also more stable than standard omega-3 fish oil so it’s not as apt to spoil or oxidize.

The folic acid and other B vitamins help promote sustained energy and heart health as well. Folic acid is also tremendously helpful in keeping your blood vessels healthy.

How Much Does Dr. Sinatra’s Omega Q Plus with Resveratrol Cost?

For a month’s supply of this supplement, you’re going to pay about $34 and shipping is free if you buy Omega Q Plus With Resveratrol and choose to have it automatically delivered to you on a monthly basis. You can also choose to buy 3 for about $102 and get 1 bottle free, or you can buy 5 bottles for about $170 and get 2 bottles free. If you’re sure that you’re going to use them, or if you’d like to share them with friends, then you’re much better off to buy in bulk.

How Do You Buy It?

You simply select your product and quantity, sign up or check out as a guest (although signing up usually nets you regular coupons), enter your shipping and billing information and you’re all set. The site is VeriSign secure, so it’s completely safe to order.

Comments

  1. Hello Carol,

    I am now taking multiple vitamins. I had a heart attack last year and mentioned to the doctor that I was taking the following every night: Niacin(slow release), CoQ10, Olive Leaf, Garlic, Cinamin,Anaxanthan, cinnamon. He told me to keep taking them and that it protected my heart from getting damaged.
    I heard that Resveratrol will not be of any benefit unliss you take a lot of it every day. How much is a lot and is there enough in the daily dose of the Omega Q Plus.

    Last thing, I just got a pamphlet in the mail about a new squid supplement for circulation. Have you heard of it and is it worth looking in to?

    Hope I didn’t supply too many remarks.
    Regards,

    Bob

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Bob, I pray you are recovering nicely after your heart attack last year. I am happy to hear you are taking a pro-active approach to your health. I understand your dilemma in figuring out what to take and in what amounts. Fortunately, Omega Q Plus with Resveratrol has been formulated by a world renown, board certified cardiologist, nutritionist, and anti-aging specialist specializing in integrative medicine who has over 30 years of experience. He formulated Omega Q plus with resveratrol as a comprehensive solution that could address every aspect of heart health—cholesterol ratios, circulation, blood pressure, inflammation, etc. Resveratrol can protect your blood vessels and improve circulation. In fact, ResVida resveratrol is the ONLY form of resveratrol used in published human clinical studies, and it’s the only form powerful enough added to Omega Q Plus. I hope this clarifies things for you. Carol

  2. Vivian Finkelstein says:

    Hi Carol,
    Can you tell me exactly how much of each ingredient is in Omega Q Plus. I am trying to see if I can discontinue some of my present supplementation with this product but thus far have been unable to get the needed information.
    Thanks,
    Vivian

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Vivian, Two softgels give you the following amounts. I hope this helps.

      Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCI, pryidoxal-5-phosphate) 30 mg
      Folic Acid (400 mcg)
      Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) 750 mcg
      Calamarine®♦ Oil Concentrate (from squid) 1,250 mg
      DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) (as ethyl esters) 350 mg
      EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) (as ethyl esters) 150 mg
      L-Carnitine (as fumarate) 200 mg
      Coenzyme Q10 (as ubiquinone) 50 mg
      resVida®§ Trans Resveratrol 30 mg

    • William Martin says:

      In veiwing your question to Carol, I see that we share a similar concern!!
      Let me tell you something: I am off my meds now because of what Omega Q Plus does for me!!!
      Phenyotoin(eplectic seizures)
      Plaviz (had a stroke- they also prescribe this for heart-attack patients. This is expensive)
      Symvastatin
      Addenol
      These are just some of the meds I was on…….. but Omega Q Plus does all that these meds do AND in a natural way!!!! Also it is not as expensive!!!!1

      Just thought I’d share this concern with you since we both seem to have a similar approach to our health concers!!!!!

  3. Cleo Davis says:

    Could taking OmegaQ plus transreveratrol let me stop taking my daily multi vitamin? Thank you because I’d like to lessen my daily intake of my array of pills. :-)

  4. $34 a month (for someone who won’t be discontinuing any meds and saving money on prescription meds, if found they are able to do so from their physician) is BS. The vitamin industry is getting to be as bad as big pharma when they overprice a product that is “life saving”. It’s too bad that these corporations are more concerned in making a profit than they are at making people well.

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Cynthia, I surely can understand how you feel about the cost of supplements. However, I do believe there are people out there that truly care about people and that is why they started their company. For example, go to http://www.docsbestmultivitamins.com and read his story about how and why he started formulating vitamins for nutritional support. Also, it is quite involved and labor intensive to manufacture pure, high-quality supplements. I do agree with you that many are out for profit. There is always bad and good in every aspect of life. We need to do our due diligence and search things out. I try to do that for you. Of course, I am not infallible, because I do not know all the people involved with these companies individually, but I research all the information I can find out about the company. I don’t think you should throw out the baby with the bath water, though. My aunt is over 100 years old and takes no medication. I do believe it is due to her healthy lifestyle and supplementing with nutritional support found in vitamins. I hope this helps make for sense to you. Have a blessed day.

  5. I’ve been looking into Omega Q Plus to get off the meds I’m taking from having a stroke. Taking simvastatin and warfarin, after reading about the statin drugs and side effects, not to excited. Is this product a good alternative for lowering cholesterol?

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi BJohnson, Without giving medical advice, I would suggest you find a doctor, DO or MD, who practices integrative medicine, similar to Dr. Sinatra, who is willing to work with you. You need a physician who can wean you off of your medication, if that is what he inclines to do, and monitor your progress as he incorporates nutritional support to help your cholesterol levels and whatever else is going on which caused you to have a stroke. I hope you are recovering from your stroke. My mom had a stroke when she was only in her 40’s. Thank the Lord she recovered with no permanent maladies. Keep me posted of your progress. Blessings!

  6. What worries me a little about the ingredients list is the Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) 750 mcg.

    Cyanocobalamin is the cheapest form of B12 and many experts recommend avoiding it as it contains cyanide.

    The better choice though more expensive B12 is methylcobalamin – so why not use this form in a not so inexpensive quality product?

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Surin, Sorry about the delay in replying to your message, but I always want to get to the bottom of things. I actually asked Dr. Sinatra directly, and I even sent him information regarding B12 as cyanocobalamin. This was his exact answer to the question. “Hi Carol, Cyanocobalamin is a very well-researched form of vitamin B12 and does an excellent job of raising B12 levels. I do use methylcobalamin in some supplements, but in general it tends to be less stable and doesn’t work in every formulation. I hope that helps, Dr. Sinatra. Surin, also keep in mind that Dr. Sinatra uses his supplements in his clinic, so he performs blood work on the patients to monitor their progress and makes any changes necessary. If none of his patient’s are responding to a certain formulation, he would reformulate. I hope this clarifies things for you.

  7. Hi carol. Wondering what your thoughts are on another CoQ10 supplement created by Dr. Mark Stengler called Reservatrol Q Plus. He states that your supplement should have both kinds of CoQ10 – uniquinone and ubiquinol . Here is a list of its ingredients:

    Thank you in advance, Steve

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Steve, Thanks for keeping me on my toes. The product is actually called Revitalize Q Plus. In researching the product, it appears to be a decent supplement. However, the claims that are made are not altogether accurate. I do not feel this supplement is any better than the one recommended at http://www.omegaqwithantioxidants.com.

      The reason is Dr. Sinatra did his own study to clear up any misconceptions. He performed an informal 12 person study of CoQ10 with Ubiquinone vs. Ubiquinol. Half of the participants took either 200 mg of ubiquinol or 200 mg of ubiquinone for the first month. In the second month, he had them take nothing. In the third month, the participants switched to the other form of CoQ10.

      The individual’s CoQ10 blood levels were checked each month. Both groups achieved excellent results with ubiquinol resulting in only slightly higher levels in most people…making it not worth the higher cost. Also, in one person, ubiquinol actually resulted in a significantly lower CoQ10 blood level when compared to ubiquinone.

      More importantly, Dr. Sinatra was disturbed by feedback from several volunteers who complained of fatigue when they took ubiquinol. Incidentally, he also heard about complaints of fatigue from two respected colleagues who are nutrition experts. One said she felt considerable fatigue after starting ubiquinol something he has never heard from anyone taking ubiquinone. On the contrary, the usual feedback from ubiquinone users is that they feel they have more energy, not less.

      Furthermore, the biggest claim is that ubiquinol can be absorbed up to eight times better than other forms of CoQ10. Yet, there isn’t solid evidence to back up this claim. In fact, for years Dr. Sinatra has used the ubiquinone form of CoQ10 with great success. Matter of fact, the absorption problem with ubiquinone is the powder-filled capsule form. The Type used by Dr. Sinatra is a high-quality hydrosoluble form of ubiquinone that has superior absorption. I hope this clears up and confusion for you, Steve. Have a blessed day and happy New Year!

  8. can I take omega Q 100 Resveratrol with
    Zetia

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Sandra, Thanks for writing in. What I can tell you is Dr. Sinatra, who formulated the supplement, is a cardiologist and prescribes it to his patients, even those who are on statins. This is what Dr. Sinatra says, “If you’re over 60, concerned about your cardiovascular health, need a bigger energy boost, or are taking a statin drug, this formula is for you.

      No other natural solution can deliver what Omega Q Plus 100 Resveratrol can: Balance blood pressure levels and healthy HDL, LDL and triglyceride ratios, improve circulation and superior heart health. It also has natural anti-inflammatory power, antioxidant protection for anti-aging and immune health, superior support for your joints, eyes, and brain.

      Plus, it has the benefits of twice as much CoQ10: Extra energy production at the cellular level, and it has additional CoQ10 replenishment (vital if you’re over 60 or take a statin drug).

      Of course, always discuss, with your doctor, anything you are taking that he has not prescribed. I hope this helps and you show improvement. Have a blessed day.

  9. Pinkheron says:

    Carol, I just heard the ad on the radio for his product and found you in a web search. this is my first visit to your site and I just have to ask if you are in a business agreement, formal or otherwise, with Dr. Sinatra? I don’t know much about you or your show and books, but your comments prompt me to ask.

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Pinkheron, I have been following Dr. Sinatra for over 30 years, before the internet, via physical newsletters. The reason I endorse him is because his credentials and credibility precede him. He is a renown Cardiologist. His products are of very high quality and help his patients which he treats. I do not have to recommend him. I choose to, so I became an affiliate. I can recommend who I wish, but I only promote those whom I have researched and believe have some of the best supplements and nutraceuticals available. Thanks for writing in. I hope this information is of value to you. :)

      • Carol, when you say you are an affiliate of Dr. Sinatra’s, does this mean you receive a monetary incentive or any other form of compensation for promoting his products?

        • John, yes, being an affiliate does mean that. The reason I wrote a review on Dr. Sinatra’s products and promote them is because I have been following him and reading his news letters since before there was the internet and have found him to be a very credible MD/Cardiologist who offers quality supplements. My mother is 82 and has been taking his supplements for about 15 years. She takes no medication.

  10. narita pacot says:

    Hello Mam Carol,
    is there age rage to take this supplement like omega Q plus w, Resveratrol? i am 36 yrs old i am doing fine and i wanted to take this supplement is it possible? any advice please

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Narita, Actually, taking Omega Q Plus w/Resveratrol starting now, at 36 years young, while you are health,y as a protective measure is smart. I do the same. :)

  11. Don Hansen says:

    I am presently taking Dr. Sinatra’s Seanol Longevity Plus along with other basic vitamin supplements and am also taking CoQ10 200mg. After reading about Dr. Sinatra’s Omega Q Plus I am pondering whether to take it rather than Seanol Longevity Plus. I just turned 86 and I do like that word longevity! I have also been taking Plavix since Oct 2005 due to suffering a pretty severe TIA at that time. I guess I’m wondering if I should I try something like Omega Q Plus while taking Plavix Maybe I could stop taking the Plavix and keep my fingers crossed.

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi Don, Wow! Sounds like you are doing pretty good for 86 years young. If you are seeing a highly recommended heart specialist/Cardiologist. he/she should/would be very knowledgeable in the supplements you are taking, like Dr. Sinatra is, if he is a really good doctor. If he/she doesn’t, perhaps you might consider finding one. If you were to go off Plavix, your doctor would need to monitor you, and the process should be gradual. You cannot quit a medication cold turkey especially since you have been on it since 2005. In addition, Seanol and Omega Q Plus would be complimentary to one another. Cheers! to a long, healthy and happy life. My aunt will be 101 next month. She is as sharp as a tack. She believes in vitamin supplements too.

  12. Hi Carol. 61-y.o. male covering from a stroke that occurred 2 months ago. Stroke was caused by a blood vessel bursting between the left and right lobes of my brain. Primarily affected by (primary) right side numbness, ability to walk, spasticity in right arm/hand, loss of fine motor control, etc. Taking only Losartan, Amlodypine and Hydroclorothiazide; not taking any other meds or supplements. Current blood pressure readings 110-120’s over 60-70’s. Some talk by Dr.’s of starting statins/possibly aspirin and/or fish oil. Undergoing PT and OT at home. From the literature, it seems the Dr. Sinatra’s calamarine formulation would benefit me, however, need to know if there would be any interactions between current and proposed meds and this supplement before approaching my Dr. with idea. Main concern is any possible drug interaction or increased stroke risk.

    • Carol Newman says:

      Hi David, You have been through a lot. My mother had a hemorrhagic stroke when I was 10. I am now 50 and my mom is now 82. Since I cannot give you medical advice, what I can tell you is my mom takes Dr. Sinatra’s multivitamin, magnesium, omega q plus with resveratrol and vitamin D. If you have a knowledgeable. doctor he will be aware that statins deplete your body of the heart healthy vitamin Q10 (ubiquinol). Seek a doctor that values the use of nutraceuticals along with medications that are absolutely necessary for your health. Dr. Sinatra, incorporates vitamins and medications to his patients and monitors them for any interactions. Your doctor should be doing that too if he is any good. My mother also takes a whole-food vitamin C (1/4 teaspoon 1 to 3 times a day). She buys it from http://www.synergypurevitaminc.com. By the way, my mom also walks almost every day. She does have a pacemaker and she is not on any medications. I hope this helps. Praying for your recovery. :)

  13. Tony Hathaway says:

    When I try to send this I get an error message that I have already sent it. Please disregard this if you have already received this for some reason????

    I have been burned a few times by supplement claims. So I’ve learned to search the internet to find negative comments about the supplement being touted so I won’t get burned again. I could find almost nothing negative about this product except for the following on Amazon. I have cut and pasted it here below to elicit a response from you. Why do you think Mr. Chou experienced these results and why did he not receive a refund as he requested? Thanks.
    Cut and pasted from Amazon site:
    1.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Sinatra Omaga Q Plus, November 3, 2013
    By Yeun Chou
    This review is from: Dr. Sinatra’s Omega Q Plus with Resveratrol Heart Health Supplement, 180 Softgels (90-day supply) (Health and Beauty)
    I took Dr. Sinatra’s Omaga Q Plus for about 10 months and my blood pressure went from around 126/65 to 145/80. After switching back to regular fish oil, my blood pressure has been gradually lowering. Now is around 135/73. I have been trying to return unused Omaga Q Plus to Dr. Sinatra’s company, but could not get any reply from them. Now I have serious doubt if this product has the ingredients and benefits as they claim.

    • Hi Tony, I question the truthfulness of his claim on the basis that he said he could not get a refund. Before I even started promoting Dr. Sinatra’s supplements, my mom, dad and I were already taking them. I have never had a problem getting a refund. My dad was taking a supplement for prostate health and it wasn’t helping, so they gave him a refund. I also read the article from Harvard Health Letter. Dr. Sinclair did mention that he takes a resveratrol supplement.

      I take many supplements, especially a good multiple and a whole-food vitamin C not ascorbic acid. I have a very good article on ascorbic acid. I found I feel much better when I take vitamins. I have an auto-immune disease and get sick easily. I stopped taking supplements for about a year and ended up sick three times that year. Ig could be a coincidence, but I am not going to take the chance.

      Incidentally, I feel the same way that you do. I research everything to the nth degree and am very skeptical. That being said, I have been following and reading Dr. Sinatra’s newsletters, since before there was internet, for about 30 years. He has the educational and practical experience to back up what he says.

      Nevertheless, I will continue taking resveratrol. Hmmm, I wonder if in the study they happened to document telomere length before and after. Research is finding a correlation between telomere length and longevity.

      Tony, thanks for commenting. Feel free to email me at carol@biogirlhealth.com. I enjoy discussing this with you. :)

  14. Hi Carol ;
    I get these papers in the mail all the time about Dr Sinatrs’s Omega Q Plus . I have emphysema and BPH I take several med for these ailments but would Omega Q plus help me with these. I have done some research on natural supplements. I like the idea of natural . Thank you for your column It is very interesting Thank you Jim

    • Hi Jim, Thank you for your question. It is important to be detailed in the severity of your disease/illnesses as well as your overall health. Are you overweight? Do you smoke? Is your emphysema hereditary? Are you sedentary? What medications are you taking? There are many variables. Of course, aside from that and as long as you inform your doctor of the supplements you are taking Q10, or ubiquinol, as it is also known by, is a valuable nutrient to overall health especially the heart. As far as your BPH, it depends on how bad it is, because medical intervention can be necessary. However, there are supplements that can help to maintain prostate health or help in mild cases of BPH. Dr. Sinatra has a formula specifically for prostate health. It is called prostate solutions. As always, inform you medical doctor of any new vitamins or supplements you are taking. I hope this helps, Jim.

  15. Hello Carol, This is Charles and I am 57 years old, I did reading through your articles and comments and do like it. I been doing lot research on good supplements for my health, because I work 2 jobs ( full time and part time ) and my eating habits are not good so I been taking multi vitiamns. I am so far healthy and do look good for my age. I booklet telling about Omega Q Plus and I read though it It does look good and am considering to get the 5 months supply with 2 free month supply. It says it helps make your skin look younger I wonder how does it do that. But I do see it benefits the heart and blood circulation which its important. I currently been taking Dr Whitaker Forward Plus ( multi vitiamns ) I do wonder if its ok to take Omega Q Plus with Forward Plus multi vitiamns. I do hope hear from you and thank you.

    • Hi Charles, I am happy to hear you make an effort to take care of yourself and take vitamin supplements for added support. I understand about the busyness of work. I was working three jobs and going to school. Now I am only working two jobs. Since I have an auto-immune disease, I take extra effort in maintaining optimal health. Part of my regimen is to take supplements for additional support. One of the main supplements I take is Q10/ubiquinol. My mom and dad, who are in their 80s, also take Q10 and other supplements.

      The reason Q10 is so very important is because it is a very powerful antioxidant. It helps protect our cells from oxidative stress and free radicals of which age the body including the skin. Furthermore, environmental toxins enter our bodies and cause damage and increase our oxidant levels, allowing the cells in our bodies to breakdown further and impair mechanisms in the body needed to repair itself.

      Ubiquinol is also very important in our body’s energy production. It is one of the major team players in achieving this goal, because it acts as a catalyst for the mitochondria to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Without getting technical, what CoQ10 does is assist in this energy cycle production of ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate) and ADP (Adenosine Triphosphate) in the mitochondira to produce energy by donating electrons required for the reattachment of the phosphate group from ADP to produce ATP. Once CoQ10 has delivered its electrons and ATP is reformed, the cycle then repeats. As long CoQ10 is present and food for fuel, it’s a continual energy process. However, if CoQ10 levels are depleted, the recycling of ATP from ADP is significantly impaired.

      In addition, clinical studies done since the 1970s have shown oral administration of CoQ10 to have positive results in the health of patients suffering from heart problems. Analysis of the heart muscle tissue collected from patients with heart disease indicated the tissue concentration on CoQ10 was significantly reduced.
      Additionally, it has been shown that patients with lower ubiquinol concentrations and a decrease in ATP (energy) production in the heart muscle tissue suffered more severe types of heart disease than patients with higher levels of CoQ10.

      Lastly, Forward Plus is a quality multivitamin. There are not any contraindications of taking it with CoQ10. I actually have taken Forward Plus before. The reason I am not right now is there are many brands I feel are of high quality, so I switch back and forth.

      All the best to you, Charles, and your health. God bless! and Happy Thanksgiving.:)
