Be Well COQ10 Ubiquinol Review
Today’s review puts a product called COQ10 Ubiquinol Dietary Supplement as manufactured by Be Well under the spotlight. COQ10 is a vitamin-like coenzyme found in poultry, meat, eggs and some vegetables that is necessary for the mitochondrial functioning of cells. At cellular level, they help the cells to release energy so the body as a whole can work well.
In addition, COQ10 is also a hardworking free radical fighter. As such, it slows cell degeneration. Consequently, it is often prescribed medically for heart and vascular-related diseases, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and a host of other ails.
Be well asserts that the ubiquinol in their formula is the superior, bioavailable form of COQ10. Their product as stated is designed to ignites cellular energy production, boost stamina and vitality, improve cardiovascular health and slow down aging. It will also increase vitality and strengthen immunity. In addition, the manufacturer says it will promote active brain functioning and replenish serum levels when taking statin drugs.

- Medium-chain triglycerides
- Purified water
- Glycerin ascorbyl palmitate
COQ10 cannot be absorbed easily into the bodily, with the least desirable form being powder form. The first thing to note about the composition here is its ready bioavailability. The second is that it is contained in the pricier form, ubiquinol, as found in the body, not ubiquinone. This form is usually pricier. However, leading leading cardiologists doubt whether ubiquinol is actually superior benefit-wise to ubiquinone.
The 100 mg dosage is average. You would benefit from 50 mg to 100 mg if you are of average health. The closer you are to 60, the more you should aim for 200 mg per day. If you are on statins, make that 300 mg as statins suppress COQ10 production.
Two capsules daily with food and water. Food helps the absorption of COQ10. Obtain your doctor’s advice if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or on medication. Not suitable for children under 18.
Studies have shown that more is definitely more with COQ10. Athletes who took 300 mg, for example, showed better oxidation and fitter results than those who took 100 mg.
You’ll pay $34 for 60 capsules or a 30-day supply. This is a little pricier than other supplements, probably due to the ubiquinol form of the coenzyme.
Possible Side Effects
These include nausea, headaches and diarrhea. They are mild and seldom an issue, if every felt.
We could not find any clear evidence of a returns or money-back guarantee, although the product comes with many quality guarantees.
Be Well COQ10 Ubiquinol Review – The Bottom Line
We think both the delivery form of the coenzyme and constitution of the capsule itself mean that this is a good and highly absorbable form of COQ10. The fact that it is in ubiquinone form probably accounts for why the manufacturer touts it as a pure form – it is indeed the form found in the body. Cardiologists are in two minds as to whether it’s actually superior though. You do need to take two servings a day though to reap increased benefits, especially if you are over 60. This makes the supplement somewhat comparably pricey.
Despite the good formulation, our big concern is around the seeming lack of a money-back guarantee. There should be no problems backing such a bioavailable form of the supplement as a manufacturer. A patient’s existing health and age are factors that inform how well the body receives each particular formulation of COQ10. Given that it is primarily a heart, cell energy release and anti-aging supplement, it is of the utmost importance to know you can make a risk-free purchase.
