CoQ10 and its activated form, ubiquinol, are among the most popular supplements in the U.S. They may be useful useful in treating congestive heart failure and preliminary evidence suggests other uses including improving "vitality," reversing side-effects of "statin" drugs, and preventing migraine headaches.
But choosing the best CoQ10 or ubiquinol product can be difficult. Among the 50 products tested in this Review alone, the suggested daily serving size ranged from 30 mg to 1,000 mg; the cost to obtain 100 mg of CoQ10 ranged from 8 cents to over 3 dollars; and many of the CoQ10 and ubiquinol products reviewed included "solubility enhancers" which may significantly increase absorption.
Most shocking was our discovery that two CoQ10 products contained less CoQ10 than listed. One had only 61% of the amount claimed.
