Does it Work?
There are two ways to ascertain whether or not a product such as VitaPulse works: User reviews, and studies of the individual ingredients. Because user reviews can be subjective, and in some case planted by those with an agenda, it may be wise to consider studies of the primary ingredients and align them with the claims of the product’s marketing.
The Mayo Clinic offers an excellent summary for the tested benefits of CoQ10.
CoQ10’s affect on heart failure and high blood pressure are cited by Mayo Clinic lists CoQ10 as having “good scientific evidence for this use.”
It lists the over 50 uses for CoQ10 that are described as “unclear scientific evidence”: Among those listed are coronary heart disease and heart attack.
A quick list of potential uses for NAC includes a large list of possibly effective uses, including (but not limited to) chest pain, bronchitis, COPD, kidney disease, heart attack, and flu.
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is a popular antioxidant which is said to support brain and nerve health, along with heart and cancer protection. A consice summary of recent studies can be found here. A 2008 study reported “likely that PQQ antioxidatively prevents the oxidative damage of the nervous system, and hence maintain its cognitive function.”
It would appear that the three primary ingredients of VitaPulse are popular choices, and have at least some studies which show their effectiveness, although cholesterol health does not seem to be a significant use for any of these ingredients.
Culling potential side effects from the three ingredients listed above, and from user reviews, it appears that nausea, heartburn, insomnia, headache, and fatigue are among the most common complaints, although side effects of each are generally considered to be minimal.
There are challenges when attempting to review a supplements which is said to increase energy, reduce anxiety, and increase metabolism or mental sharpness. These statements are highly subjective to the individual, and perceived benefits can run the gamut from user to user. As stated above, there are studies which indicate that each of the three ingredients show promise in a wide variety of areas.
When reading reviews of various CoQ10 supplements you can find almost any ailment reported to be cured or diminished by various users – even those which aren’t typically associated with CoQ10. Thus, subjective reader reviews are only of limited benefit. Moreover, planted product reviews are rampant in 2016, as are reviews in exchange for free products – which many believe can influence a reviewer’s final opinion. Reviews found on the product’s own website are also of limited benefit because we don’t know how legitimate those are, or whether or not negative reviews were filtered out.
Our testers here at Epic Reviews have tried a number of supplements in recent months, and – as reflected in virtually every supplement review online – the results range from “It didn’t work,” to “I had more energy.” That is going to be the mantra for virtually any supplement you find online, including VitaPulse.
The information available about the primary ingredients does not indicate that LDL levels be improved, nor that this combination of supplements will prevent heart problems. There are, however, a number of benefits which are indicated by initial studies, and this is probably enough for most consumers to try out such a supplement.
With that in mind, you will almost certainly want to try the ingredients yourself – whether via VitaPulse or another product – and should focus your attention on the vendor from which you are purchasing your supplements.
VitaPulse is available via the official product website, PrincetonNutrients.com, which was only registered in May 2015. That means it is a relatively new online presence. The product is promoted by Dr. Arash Bereliani (although, interestingly, his first name is not mentioned on his bio page), who is a highly-rated Beverly Hills doctor.
Princeton Nutrients LLC has improved its BBB rating significantly in 2016, up to an “A-” as of September of this year.
Pro tip: Take VitaPulse about 30 minutes before eating to allow for optimal absorption.
Some consumers would rather purchase the individual ingredients of VitaPulse separately, allowing them to increase or decrease the amount of each, or to remove one completely in the case of unwanted side effects. Depending on the brand and vendor, you may be able to purchase the same combination of ingredients for less. For example, the following individual products delivers about the same ingredients for a cost of $37.14:
Of course it could be argued that VitaPulse offers more convenience by including all of the above ingredients into a single pill.
VitaPulse is a supplement which contains CoQ10, NAC, and PQQ. Marketing for the product implies that it may help cholesterol levels and heart health. While these claims have not been proven by studies, there is some evidence that the ingredients of VitaPulse may offer a variety of health benefits. Results are highly subjective, and the ingredients can be purchased individually at local retailers, although VitaPulse offers the convenience of these ingredients in a single pill. Consumer reviews for VitaPulse are generally positive.
