I'm a healthy female who take supplements, but I have a question about CoQ10. Here are my questions:
- How much CoQ10 should I be taking?
- What does CoQ10 actually do?
- What form of CoQ10 is best?
Generally, CoQ10 should be supplemented at not less than 50 mg, although we use 100 mg at New Hope Medical Center. CoQ10 is essential for energy production. Because it is not stored in the body, it is in constant need of replenishment. It is particularly helpful for heart and brain conditions where much energy is expended. For example, if someone has a weak heart, then 200-400 mg should be taken daily. The best form of CoQ10 is "Ubiquinol", as opposed to Ubiquinone, because this is the active form. For more information, you can hear my radio show podcast for April 11, 2008, which is found on my website at http://www.newhopemedical.org./ Hope this helps!
