Conclusion – PipingRock CoQ10
There were several things we liked about PipingRock CoQ10. We liked that there was a wide selection of different pill concentrations and size bottles to choose from. We liked that there was at least a limited return policy in place. On the negative side, we felt like the range of different concentrations of CoQ10 was potentially confusing to the consumer. From what we have researched it seems the ideal dosage is 250mg per day, anything less is not enough and anything more is not beneficial. One of the bottles with the dosage we would be interested in (250mg) was out of stock. In terms of the return policy, we were also disappointed. We would have liked to see an option to return open bottles of the supplement as well as closed ones. We found a distinct lack of online reviews for this supplement which is somewhat troubling as well. We would expect to see positive and negative reviews for any supplement that we review but there were very few reviews that we could find. The manufacturer’s claims as to what the supplement can do for you are very hard to measure and very vague in terms of how long you should take the supplements before seeing an improvement to your health. For these reasons we are unable to recommend PipingRock CoQ10 at this time.
