Product Claims of Vitamode CoQ10 Ubiquinol
Today we review Vitamode CoQ10 Ubiquinol. Formulated with natural Coenzyme Q10, this supplement provides sustainable energy and antioxidants to keep your body healthy. Already in the active form, this supplement provides CoQ10 that is easily absorbed into the body.
Each softgel contains 100 mg of pure CoQ10. Unfortunately, there are many problems with this being the only ingredient. Firstly, clinical research shows that an adult should be taking 250 mg of this nutrient per day to see maximum benefits. Also, this type of nutrient needs the addition of BioPerine to help the body with absorption. Without either the right amount of the nutrient or without the needed BioPerine, this supplement will not be as effective as it claims to be.
The manufacturer recommends that adults take 1-2 softgels per day. The dose should be taken with food. Even if you take the higher dose, however, you will still fall 50 mg short of what scientific studies show the adult body needs.
Cost and Guarantee
One box of 30 capsules costs $32.04. For having such a low amount of CoQ10 per capsule, this cost is quite expensive. Also, as this is a Malaysian company, your product will need to be shipped internationally. As international packages tend to incur different tariffs and taxes, they cannot give you a summary of the full shipping costs, which could cause the price to go even higher. The company urges you as the customer to research these different costs before making your purchase.
This manufacturer does not offer a money back guarantee. Instead, they offer a return policy that only lasts for 7 days from your original purchase date. Unfortunately, as this item will need to be shipped internationally, there is a large chance you will not receive the item in time to even request a return. Also, returns can only be made of unopened, unused bottles, in the original packaging. They also retain the right to refuse a refund for any reason. With all of these stipulations, this refund policy is too strict and makes it near impossible to request a refund for this product.
Summary Of Our Vitamode CoQ10 Ubiquinol Review
There are a few things we liked about Vitamode CoQ10 Ubiquinol. Each capsule contains pure CoQ10. Also, the dosing is an easy, once per day dose, and it is flexible so that you can take two softgels, should you want to.
Unfortunately, we have many concerns in regards to this supplement. First of all, while the CoQ10 is pure, there is not enough of it per capsule to meet clinical recommendations. Secondly, there should be BioPerine added into these pills to improve your absorption of the nutrient. Next, the price is very high for this product, especially when you factor in international shipping costs. Lastly, the return policy has so many stipulation that it will be near impossible to return your product for a refund. For these reasons, we cannot recommend this supplement to help you sustain your energy and keep your heart healthy.
