What is Metagenics CoQ10 ST?
CoQ10 ST claims to be a specially formulated supplement that is designed to help maintain a healthy blood pressure and support cardiovascular health with added vitamin E. The unique selling point of this product is that it contains D-limonene which helps to increase absorption and the bioavailability of the natural Coenzyme Q10 formula.
In this review of Metagenics CoQ10 ST, we will be taking a closer look at the facts to see if this product lives up to the claims.
- Vitamin E – 100 IU
- Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) – 100 mg
- D-limonene oil
- Medium-chain triglycerides
- Turmeric powder (color)
- Zinc oxide (color)
The main ingredient to focus on in this formula is Coenzyme Q10. this enzyme is naturally produced by the body but depletes as we age. It is responsible for proper bodily functions and for cellular energy. Coenzyme Q10 also acts as an antioxidant which means that it protects the cells from damage caused by harmful molecules. While this may be a potent enzyme, there is not enough evidence and research to prove that added vitamin E and D-limonene can increase the bioavailability and the effects of the coenzyme Q10. these additional ingredients may have the reverse effect by compromising the quality and potency of the main active ingredient.
The manufacturer suggests taking one capsule a day or as directed by your doctor. We were unable to find information on whether or not this product should be taken with meals. In comparison to other leading brands, this product seems to offer a significantly lower dose of Coenzyme Q10 which leaves us questioning the effectiveness of the product.
What is the Cost?
Unfortunately, this product is not available for sale directly from the manufacturer’s website, however, you can purchase it online from third-party retailers for $119.24 for 120 capsules.
We were unable to find any satisfaction guarantee for this product which means that you may run the risk of losing out some hard earned money if you find that the product does not work for you. Alternatively, you would need to speak to the retailer you purchased this product from to find out if you may qualify for a refund.
Our Final Review of Metagenics CoQ10 ST
We liked that the manufacturer’s website is user-friendly and informative, we also liked that this product is available in both 60 and 120 counts, however, it is difficult to find a retailer that offers both options. In addition to that we feel that the product is quite expensive and since there are no discounts, it may not be very cost-effective in the long run. We found a few mixed reviews but it is not enough to gauge whether this product is effective or not. Our main concern is that there is no money back guarantee and that there is no proof or clinical data to back up the claims made by the manufacturer.
