It is also free from sugar, starch, salt, preservatives or artificial color, flavor, or fragrance. The manufacturer provides clear instructions on when and how the user should take the supplement. On the less positive side, we found many more things about the product that we do not like. Although the company website lists pricing for the product, you can’t actually purchase the product from the website which we found annoying. Not one form of the supplement provides the clinically proven, safe and effective daily dosage of 250 mg of COQ10. The product lacks BioPerine and may cause the product to be less effective in comparison with other brands. Since the capsules are made with gelatin, this product is unsuitable for vegetarians and vegans. Other than the discounted volume rates, the manufacturer does not provide bulk buying discounts or new customer incentives. The manufacturer does not back their product with a money-back guarantee. Due to these reasons, we are unable to recommend Source Naturals CoQ10.
