This is a review of a supplement called Source Naturals Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is a naturally synthesizing enzyme that is known to diminish production over time; so as people age, their ability to produce this beneficial substance decreases. This product claims to provide enough CoQ10 for sufficient antioxidant support as well as assist with the efficient functioning of major organs such as the heart, brain, and liver – boosting general immunity. This review shall assess this product’s ability to fulfill these claims as well as the extent of the customer support provided by the manufacturer.
CoQ10 (Coenzyme Q-10) is naturally synthesized in the human body and used in the important processes such as supporting the metabolism, cardiovascular system, and virtually every other bodily function. This substance is also an antioxidant that can prevent signs of aging. The manufacturer offers many products such as lozenges, soft gels, and capsules that have varying concentrations of CoQ10 – which can be confusing for potential customers. The best brands on the market use a concentration of 250 mg, so for the rest for this review, we shall focus on the closest product to this: the 200mg capsules.
This product contains no yeast, dairy, egg, gluten, soy, corn, or wheat. It is suitable for vegetarians but is not Vegan-friendly. The manufacturer also claims that there are no sugars, salts, preservatives, or artificial ingredients included in this formula. However, the product does contain fillers like Maltodextrin and colloidal silicon dioxide; which are noted under ‘other ingredients’ and do not have a concentration. This is concerning as these fillers could deter the efficacy of the key ingredient. There is also no mention of an ingredient to optimize the absorption of the key ingredient, such as piperine, which is a pity as this undoubtedly influences product efficacy.
For the 200mg CoQ10 capsules, adults should take 1 capsule daily with a meal. It does not stipulate if a certain time of day is beneficial, such as in the morning or evening. Pregnant or breastfeeding mothers should consult with a physician before use.
This product can only be purchased from third-party sites. This particular product (200mg capsules) is available in a 30 and 60 capsule pack. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $19,50 for the pack of 390; and $37,50 for the pack of 60. Customers will need to research between the 6 potential sites for the best prices and package deals available – which may be an inconvenience for time-strapped customers.
There appears to be no available information on customer guarantees or a refund policy available on the Source Naturals website. There is a customer service contact number, so we advise the customer to inquire about their support before purchasing this product. There are also insufficient reviews for this product, which is somewhat concerning.
Source Naturals Coenzyme Q10 Review – Conclusion
Source Naturals Coenzyme Q10 offers a variety of CoQ10 products with varying concentrations of the active ingredient. Thier 200 mg capsules are closest to competing brands whom present products with 250mg of the key ingredient. This product is not suitable for vegans. The formula has no ingredients to promote the absorption of the active ingredient, yet contains fillers which may prevent the efficacy of the product in delivering on its claims. It may be time-consuming to find the best-priced product on the varying third-party sites and there appear to be no manufacturer guarantees or customer reviews; which is a concern. In saying so, we do not recommend this product.
