The following review is of a product called Nature’s Own CoQ10 Complex in which the manufacturer claims that this formulation will assist with energy production, maintain cardiovascular health and may help improve circulation.
- Co-enzyme Q10 (Ubidecarenone)
- Magnesium (as amino acid chelate)
- Fallopia japonica extract
Coenzyme Q10 is effective for enhancing vision in people with age-related macular degeneration, supports the heart function in people with congestive heart failure, improves physical performance in people with muscular dystrophy, improves symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, reduces blood pressure, reduces the recurring of migraine attacks, and enhances the immune function in people with HIV. Fallopia japonica is used to modulate the function of ABC drug transporters. Resveratrol expands blood vessels and reduces the activity of cells important in blood clotting. Magnesium plays a major role in producing energy, by burning carbohydrates and fat, and enables the body to store the energy in the cells. Magnesium is needed for the movement of calcium and potassium across the nerve cells, which allows muscles to contract and relax.
The dose of Coenzyme Q10 as proven clinically is not sufficient, and the ingredient to aid absorption is excluded which leaves a great concern as to the effectiveness of this supplement.
The recommended dose is to take one capsule daily with food, or as recommended by a healthcare professional. The manufacturer warns that if the consumer is taking warfarin, this product should not be taken unless seeking medical advice.
A container of 60 capsules at a price of $22.99 available only through third-party retailers.
The products are available through third-party retailers and each retailer has their own return policy guarantee. One of the third-party retailers offers a 7-day guarantee on items if the consumer still has the proof of purchase the item is unopened including manuals, pamphlets, and in its original saleable condition. This raises a great concern as most leading manufacturers offer a one year guarantee on used items.
Nature’s Own CoQ10 Complex Review – Conclusion
We have reviewed Nature’s Own CoQ10 Complex and found that the manufacturer offers a product that has been validated for potency and purity which is an upside. The downside to this product is that it does not contain the proper dose as proven clinically to be effective, the guarantee is of a very poor standard as the consumer is not taken into consideration if only unopened items may be returned.
