CoQ10 and its activated form, ubiquinol, are now among the most popular supplements in the U.S. They may be useful in treating or preventing a range of conditions including congestive heart failure, migraine headache, high blood pressure, and Parkinson's disease. CoQ10 and ubiquinol may also reverse side-effects of "statin" drugs and improve "vitality" -- although the evidence is not conclusive.
But choosing a CoQ10 or ubiquinol product can be difficult. Among the 49 products in this Review alone, the suggested daily serving size ranged from 22 mg to 400 mg; the cost to obtain 100 mg of CoQ10 ranged from 9 cents to over 5 dollars; and many of the CoQ10 and ubiquinol products reviewed included "solubility enhancers" which may significantly increase absorption.
Most shocking was our discovery that a widely marketed CoQ10 product contained less than 4% of its listed CoQ10! If you are using this product, you are getting little CoQ10, as well as ripped-off.
