"Unfortunately, I require statin drugs to control my cholesterol and there seems to be a good consensus among health care providers that CoQ10 is a necessity for those that require statins.
According to my alternative health care provider, I require a rather large daily dose of CoQ10. Buying CoQ10 from my local pharmacies and health stores is prohibitively expensive; this product from Vitacost is by far the most economical way to get what I need.
Does it work? How does one really know? All I can say is that I'm 62+ years old and no coronary problems - so far so good!"
"the price on this product is well worth buying it if you are a user of coq10. i use coq10 because its good for the heart! but i know that all people who use supplements should consult a specialist prior to taking anything!"
