Co-Q10 Supplements Settlement Notes
- William Jackson, et al. v. Lang Pharma Nutrition Inc., et al.
- Case No. 37-2017-00028196-CU-BC-CTL
- Pending in the Superior Court of California for the County of San Diego
In November 2017, plaintiffs William Jackson, Edward Buchannan, and Thamar Santisteban Cortina filed this class action lawsuit against Lang Pharma Nutrition and several retailers alleging the defendants violated certain California laws by misleadingly labeling their CoQ-10 supplement as being more effective than they are and has having greater absorption rates then they do.
Lang Pharma manufacturers a CoQ-10 supplement product which is sold by Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and Meijer under their own store brand names.
Coenzyme Q-10 or Co-Q10 is a nutrient with proven health benefits, but also a well-known drawback: it is not soluble in water, and poorly soluble in fat. This is problematic for consumers who use CoQ-10 supplements because the body and digestive tract are aqueous, and the absorption of a substance depends on its first dissolving. To address this problem, some dietary supplement manufacturers have invented technologies for modifying orally-administered CoQ-10 to increase its solubility, and thereby its bioavailability.
All defendants deny the allegations and maintain that the CoQ-10 supplement are effective and achieve the stated absorption rates. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the CoQ-10 Supplements settlement website.
Class members who wish to object to or exclude themselves from the CoQ-10 Supplements settlement must do so by September 4, 2018. Class members who wish to participate in the settlement must submit a claim form on or before September 4, 2018.
