What is the recommended daily dosage for taking COQ10 enzyme?

What is the recommended daily dosage for taking COQ10 enzyme?

No official rec but: CoQ10 naturally occurs in every cell of our bodies so it's not considered an essential nutrient & there is no officially recommended dose. However, I advise a healthy person take 50 mg/day of the Ubiquinol form (which is better absorbed) as a preventive anti-aging agent. Those suffering from illnesses like heart disease & diabetes may benefit from 200-300 mg/day. See http://tinyurl.com/ocwb3vg ...Read more

If your doctor prescribes these medications for you after knowing your condition, then that means he/she feels the possible benefit outweighs the risk.
