The following is a review for a product called CoQ10 from Herbal Forest. The main active ingredient in this product is coenzyme Q10, which is a dietary supplement that facilitates recovery from exercise whilst boosting your energy. Coenzyme Q10 is naturally found in organ meats like liver and kidney and peanuts. In addition to facilitating exercise recovery, experts believe that it could help you manage the levels of unhealthy cholesterol in the blood, relieve migraines and regulate levels of sugar in the blood.
- Coenzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone)
- Soybean Oil
- Gelatin (Bovine)
- Purified Water
- Titanium Dioxide
When we first looked at the ingredients included in this dietary supplement, we believed it was a rather good formulation. However, upon closer inspection, we found a few things that were rather concerning. The inclusion of soybean oil means that it is highly allergenic. We were also alarmed to note that the manufacturers chose to make their capsules from bovine gelatin so it is unsuitable for vegans and vegetarians. Finally, we were also rather alarmed to note that the manufacturer included preservatives in their formula, which you would not find in similar products.
Unfortunately, we were unable to find any information regarding the recommended dosage for this product. The manufacturer does state that a serving size is one softgel capsule. Regrettably, they provide no further information so we are not sure if you should be taking this supplement with a meal or not. This is concerning as the contents of your stomach can affect your body’s ability to absorb the supplement. Additionally, we are concerned that an accidental overdose could do significant damage to the delicate lining of your stomach.
You can buy this product directly from the manufacturer on their online store. A bottle, which contains 30 softgel capsules, costs $14.75. Sadly, the manufacturer does not offer any special offers or discounts for bulk purchases on this product.
Sadly, we could not find any information on guarantees or returns policies for this product. This indicates that the manufacturer is not entirely confident with their product. Companies who offer guarantees are sure that their products serve their intended use and are thus not afraid to offer guarantees for people who are not entirely satisfied with the product they receive.
Herbal Forest CoQ10 Review – Conclusion
Our review of CoQ10 found that it is an effective dietary supplement that supports recovery from physical exertion. It contains an effective list of ingredients and dosage to meet all daily requirements. However, we were rather concerned about how little information the manufacturer provides to their customers. They are vague about the presence of additional additives and preservatives in their product. They also omit important information regarding the recommended dosage for this product. We also believe that the lack of a guarantee on this product means that you should probably think twice before you buy it. Additionally, this softgel capsules that contain the formula are made from gelatin, which means that this product is not suitable for vegans or vegetarians.
