Nativa CoQ10 Complex - Does It Work?-Review
What Is Nativa CoQ10 Complex?
CoQ10 has become one of the most researched supplements in the US considering its wide-ranging ability to counter the effects of aging on numerous fronts. The brain and the heart - thanks to oxidative stress and inflammation, these organs take a battering over time. But numerous research studies have shown that CoQ10 is highly effective at fighting free radicals and protecting these organs. It is therefore used a lot in the fight against Parkinsons and Alzheimers. If you’re on statins, almost universally you doctor will recommend a CoQ10 supplement as statins deplete this coenzyme, as does age. The benefits of this Coenzyme can’t be overrated, according to scientists.
Nativa CoQ10 Complex is one supplement containing the coenzyme and it is under review today. It says the active ingredients are designed to help cell energy production, cardiovascular health support, antioxidant support, help to prevent cramping muscles and more.
Ingredients & How It Works
- Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) 150 mg
- Vitamin E 10 mg
There are two forms of CoQ10: Ubiquinone and Ubiquinol. The latter is the effective form your body naturally uses to transfer free electrons, and research has shown it is more effective as it is more bioavailable. However, that is not to say other forms are not effective, you’ll just get slightly less of the compound. A medically recommended dose is 250mg a day, with the experts warning that anything too far below this is ineffective. The Vitamin E serves to enhance the antioxidant properties of this supplement.
Take 1 softgel per day, after a meal with water. Only for adults and children over 12. If you’re using an anticoagulant or antiplatelet medication such as Warfarin you should use this product with caution, as ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10) and vitamin E may have a blood thinning effect.
The dose is below the 250mg dose that experts say you require a day. Too much is dangerous, and too little is ineffective.
One bottle retails for $11.75 on the product website. This is for a box of 30. There don’t appear to be package deals. Remember you may have to increase your one-a-day regimen to see any effects and therefore go through the pack quickly.
There do not appear to be guarantees or returns policies in place, at least none that we could find. The product is made by a South African manufacturer and sells well locally. However, without a clear guarantee, this is meaningless to an international buyer.
Our Review Summary Of Nativa CoQ10 Complex
The product contains Vitamin E to help with the bioavailability of CoQ10. This enhances the benefit of the compound you are ingesting. In particular, cardiovascular health will benefit, as will circulation and blood pressure. This is an aid but the rate of absorption still does not come close to what it is maximally when the compounds from Bioperine are added as an ingredient.
We could not help but notice Nativa’s disclaimer that the efficacy will differ from person to person. Factors such as your base level of health will play a role, but so will the uniformity of the dosage. Upon searching for third-party verification to test amounts in random batches, we couldn’t find any. In any event, as mentioned, the serving falls short of the 250mg a day required. The product is not GMP certified as it is not locally produced. Despite being a highly popular local seller, the final thing you need to remember is that Nativa does not provide you as an international buyer with a returns policy so as to put you at ease regarding your long-distance purchase.
