This is our review for a product called GNC CoQ10. GNC CoQ10 is a dietary supplement that is designed to support cardiovascular health and restore COQ10 that has been depleted due to age and exercise. CoQ10 has a very special and big role in heart health and in the body in general. It acts as an antioxidant and is used to supply cells with energy, regulate blood pressure levels, transport electrons and protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. The manufacturer claims that their CoQ10 has been clinically proven to even replenish CoQ10 levels depleted by statin drugs.


The only active ingredient in this product is Coenzyme Q10 (Natural).
CoQ10 is vital for the health of all the human organs and tissues. It is able to prevent oxidation and cholesterol, which prevents the risks of getting diseases.

Other ingredients are Soybean oil, Glycerin, Chlorophyll, Titanium Dioxide and Gelatin.


The recommended dosage for 50mg capsules is one to four softgels daily after a meal, and one to two softgels  daily after a meal for the 200mg capsules. It took us a while to realize that there is a 50mg and 200mg bottle. An individual could easily make a mistake of buying 200mg but take a dosage of 50mg capsules because there is no difference in the appearance of the bottle.

Possible Side Effects

Side effects that have been reported include diarrhea, loss of appetite, vomiting nausea, skin rashes and upset stomach. Statin drugs and high blood pressure medication reduce the levels of CoQ10. It is advisable to contact a medical practitioner if you are taking any of these medications.

Individuals who are breastfeeding, pregnant, taking any kind of medication or have a medical condition should consult their physician before taking GNC CoQ10.


GNC CoQ10 is available from the manufacturer’s website and some online retailers. A bottle of 30 (200mg) softgels costs $18.99 on the manufacturer’s website, and 120 (50mg) softgels cost $19.99 on third-party retailers websites. Customers need to pay more attention to ensure that they are buying the milligrams that they want.


We could not find any information indicating that the manufacturer offers a guarantee. This is concerning for a product that affects very important organs in the body.

Our GNC COQ10 Review-Conclusion

GNC Coq10 contains a natural CoQ10, which has been clinically proven to have the benefits that the heart needs to function healthy. CoQ10 supplement is also known to be helpful in raising CoQ10 levels that have been depleted by Statin drugs, age and workout. We can say that this is a promising product, however it has many downsides, which make it difficult for us to trust it.
It is very easy to confuse 50mg and 200mg.  One customer on their review of this product also indicated that they had not realized that they bought 50mg, which meant that they wanted to buy 200mg instead.
There are very few reviews on this product which make us wonder how many people have used it. The lack or limited reviews implies that not many people have used the product or it is not well known. It is hard to trust  a product without testimonies from customers, especially when the manufacturer has not mentioned anything about guarantee. You are not only running the risk of wasting your money but also of compromising your health. It is better to select a product that is supported by a money-back guarantee and one that has customer reviews.
