"I like this product but for one thing - the size of the capsule. There is another brand out there which is in a smaller round capsule that is easier to swallow with the other nutrients I take in the morning. This capsule is too big and I have to take it separately. Otherwise I am very happy with the product."
"I bought this product to add to my facial nourishing cream. I have first empty the powder in a little oil but, unlike I could read on many articles, it would never dissolve. There for, I will not be able to use these 59 Capsules. One can also wonder if it dissolves in the stomach...Buying CoQ10 in soft gels is probably better, I did not pay attention and thought these were...."
"I have been taking this same coq10 for several years. My doctor(s) are always pleased to hear I take q10 due to it helps the body absorb minerals/medications. I started on it due to skin benefits and would like to think the compliments I receive on my skin (face) are in part to all I do to help myself fight the aging process. LOL!"
"I had been feeling so tired and dragging myself around. I did a computer search with my symptoms. I learned that if I take a statin drug then I need to supplement with co-Q10 because the statin drugs strip our bodies of the essential co-Q10... The article recommended supplementing with co-Q10 as we get older also with a dosage of 200 mg... I started taking the recommended dosage; and, within ten days, I began to feel soooo much better. My strength was back!!! Now, I'm no doctor; but I have found that this supplement works; and Vitacost has great products with great prices. It worked for me. I hope it works for others."
