CoQ10 & Ubiquinol Supplements Vary in Quality, as Well as Dose, Absorption, and Price According to ConsumerLab.com

White Plains, New York, March 17, 2015 — Findings from a recent study by ConsumerLab.com highlights the difficulty consumers have in selecting a supplement containing the highly-popular anti-oxidant CoQ10 or its activated form, ubiquinol. ConsumerLab.com's tests revealed that, among 24 CoQ10 and ubiquinol products it recently selected for testing, two contained less CoQ10 than listed -- one of which provided only 61% of the amount claimed. Even among products which contained their listed ingredients, consumers need to choose carefully --- the suggested daily dose ranged from 30 mg to 1,000 mg and the calculated cost ranged from 8 cents to more than $3 to obtain an equivalent amount (100 mg) of CoQ10 from products. The results appear in a new online report showing which products passed or failed testing, offer the best value, and contain solubility-enhancers which may increase absorption.

Best CoQ10 and Ubiquinol Supplements Identified in Testing by ConsumerLab

White Plains, New York, September 11, 2021 — CoQ10 and ubiquinol, the active form of CoQ10, are often taken to offset a decline in natural levels that occurs with the use of statin (cholesterol-lowering) medication, and are also promoted for increasing energy and anti-aging effects. However, because CoQ10 and ubiquinol may not be well-absorbed, there are many different formulations available that claim to improve absorption and bioavailability. ConsumerLab recently purchased and tested many of these to check if they contained their claimed key ingredients.
