  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for General health)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
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.

Advice & Tips: I am taking mostly the Ubiquinol form 600 mg. I had been taking the Wii Fit Plus body fitness test each morning from 9/3/2010 to 9/27/2010. This was my base line which resulted in a Wii Fit Age of 59 +/- 11. From 10/1/2010 until 10/18/2010, I increased my CoQ10 from 150 mg to 900 mg and added 500mg of tyrosiine and 140 mg GlycoCarn to my regimen. My Wii Fit Age dropped to 42 +/- 13. The Wii Fit Age is a measure of balance and agility.
