NOW CoQ10 - Does It Work?-Review

What is NOW CoQ10?

Today we will review a dietary supplement called NOW CoQ10. Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10 is found naturally in the body, however, it declines as one ages. This product aims to support cardiovascular health. The manufacturer claims that it contains potent free radicals that protect the cells, as well as the blood vessels in the body. Find out more about NOW CoQ10 by reading our full review below.

Ingredients & How It Works

  • Coenzyme Q10
  • Vitamin E
  • Bovine gelatin
  • Water
  • Glycerin
  • Organic caramel color
  • Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sunflower Lecithin
  • Silica

The main active ingredient in this product is Coenzyme Q10. This ingredient supports cardiovascular health whilst also providing antioxidants to protect the cells from free radicals. Vitamin E also provides antioxidants. Even though the product does not contain allergens such as dairy, soy, wheat, egg, and fish, it is still produced in a factory that produces ingredients containing these allergens. Unfortunately, this product does not contain an essential ingredient that helps increase absorption and bioavailability. This ingredient is BioPerine, and lack thereof may cause the product to be less effective.

Daily Serving

Users are recommended by the manufacturer to take 1 to 2 softgels per day with a meal. These instructions will leave a customer in doubt. It does not specify the time of day that the product should be taken. Furthermore, each capsule contains 100 mg CoQ10. For an effective daily dosage, one must receive 250 mg CoQ10. Lack of proper instructions and a lack of product, may cause NOW CoQ10 to be less effective than other products.

The Cost

NOW CoQ10 can be purchased online from the manufacturer's website. Customers can choose a bottle of 50 softgels for $21.99 or a bottle of 150 softgels for $55.99. If users take the upper dosage limit of 2 capsules per day, then a bottle of 50 softgels will not last a month.


It was quite concerning when we could not find any evidence of a money-back guarantee. Lack of a return policy may indicate that the manufacturer is not confident in their products effectiveness. This also leaves the customer at risk when purchasing a product. First time users will not be able to return a used product for a full refund if it fails to deliver positive results.

Our Review Summary Of NOW CoQ10

NOW CoQ10 seems to be a promising product and we have found a few things that we like. The manufacturer has provided the customer with the option of purchasing the softgels in various quantities. The softgels are also very easy to swallow.

Nonetheless, we have also found a few things that we do not like about the product. First of all, it does not contain BioPerine for increased absorption and bioavailability. It is also noteworthy that the product is produced in a facility that contains allergens such as dairy, egg, soy, and fish. Furthermore, the product does not provide a minimum of 250 mg CoQ10 within a daily serving. Finally, the manufacturer does not offer their clients with a money-back guarantee. These reasons lead us to believe that NOW CoQ10 is not effective. We recommend choosing an alternative CoQ10 supplement.
