February: Heart Health Comes into Focus.

Almost 37 percent of Americans have some type of heart disease, including high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke or other conditions. By 2030, the panel expects that rate to increase to more than 40 percent, or 116 million Americans.

What will the future bring? It depends on who you talk to. While everyone agrees that weight management is the linchpin for overcoming heart disease, public health efforts have failed. One bright spot: if you are reading this eNewlsetter, new research says you are doing your part.

Why Does the Price of CoQ10 Vary So Much?
Even though the price of our favorite CoQ10, Metagenics CoQ10ST-100 60 and 120 softgels, has been drastically reduced by $15 and $30 a bottle, respectively, it is still not cheap. So why do other brands sell for less? Like us, not all CoQ10's are created equal. We explain why this is in the following piece:
