Dosage: 1200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I believe it's been proven effective in 3-4 clinical trials in slowing down the effcts of PD. Not conclusive enough by government's short sighted views. I don't want to get too political here , but we have been deprived of eight years of research by our last governing body. At that time I was strongly advised to take the 1200 mg. of Co-Q10.. My doctor is pretty encouraged by my relatively slow progression. But the clock is ticking.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
