Co-enzyme Q10 aids with the daily functioning of your cells on a mitochondrial level. As such, it has far-reaching consequences for your health, and a lack of it could cause general deterioration in well-being. Specifically, your heart health could be affected as this important nutrient regulates heartbeat and promotes blood pressure in the normal range. Today we review one of the many COQ10 supplements available on the market, CoQ10 100mg, 120 by Nu U Nutrition.
As co-enzyme Q10 is rich in antoxidants it slows down the aging process by fighting free radicals. As such, it is used to prevent and treat breast cancer, viral diseases and to boost immunity. By far the most researched aspect of this coenzyme is as an aid to heart health. It is an important warrior in the fight against heart arrhythmia, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis and congestive heart failure.
The manufacturer says its product is designed to be a cell mitochondrial and heart age.
- COQ10 100 mg
- Bulking Agent (Maltodextrin)
- Capsule Shell (HydroxyPropylMethylCellulose)
- Anti-Caking Agent (Magnesium Stearate, Silicon Dioxide)
Naturally, for this review, the ingredient we are interested in is COQ10. Only 100 mg is contained in this product, which is fine as a dose, but is less than half of what is contained in other products. It is a very average concentration. Despite this, the manufacturer asserts that its product contains almost triple the strength of similar products. We find this statement to be incorrect and misleading, even if it is not being done deliberately.
The rest of the agents make up the capsule. It is vegan-friendly.
Take 1 capsule per day with a meal and water. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or on medication, consult your doctor first.
You can buy a bottle of 120 capsules on the product website for $24.09. This is an attractive price as it is a 4-month’s supply.
A 30-day money-back guarantee is in place should you not be satisfied with the product. However, this returns policy is only available to UK customers.
Conclusion – Nu U Nutrition CoQ10 100mg
The benefits of COQ10 to the body cannot be underestimated. This is an average product, in our view, although the price is highly attractive. In its purest form, COQ10 is absorbed best, namely as Ubiquinol. If not, it is best to include a solvent to aid bio-absorption, which is not the case with this formula.
The product is potentially not risk-free, due to the fact that the money-back guarantee only applies to consumers in the UK. We are hesitant to get behind this product as the manufacturer has innocently or otherwise seemingly misrepresented its product as containing triple the dose of COQ10. In fact, this is an average dose, and highest available dose is 250 mg. The amount you should take – and the dose you should look for – depends on how good your existing health is, and which conditions you are trying to manage. Speak to your doctor, then look for a product with the best dose for you.
