I have been taking it, but I am mostly a vegetarian and just noticed this warning on the label.
Why is CoQ-10 "not suitable for vegetarians"?

Hello. Just did a lot of reading to see why a vegetarian or vegan ought not to take this compound. Turns out there is no reason, but that brands are important because a number of imported capsules have been found to contain metals and foreign chemicals. In other words, cheap may not be a bargain.
coQ10 is made through a fermentation process of vegetable matter. Sometimes a company will use tobacco leaves, again, cheap brands are not a good idea. Researching the company will let you know if it is from a contaminated process.
It is not regulated by the FDA. Costco carries a good brand, coupon available for discount,. Nature Made has had good reviews, and online coupons are available for large discounts if you enter the codes from your products. Typically $7 or more off.
