Kaneka recommends new users take 200 mg to 300 mg of Ubiquinol CoQ10 – perhaps split between morning and afternoon doses – for the first three weeks. This is called a “loading dose” and is designed to bring the amount of Ubiquinol in the blood to optimal levels.
Most people who take Ubiquinol consume 100 mg per day because that is the dose most often used in clinical studies.
After three weeks, many people can move to a 100 mg daily dose. People over the age of 40 or taking cholesterol-lowering statin medication should consider taking 200 mg of Ubiquinol CoQ10 after their initial loading dose.
If you have questions about your specific situation, please consult your physician.
If swallowing large pills is difficult for you, look for brands with the Kaneka Quality seal that carry smaller soft gels.
Ubiquinol CoQ10 is gentle on the stomach and more easily absorbed by the body than conventional CoQ10. Because the nutrient is fat-soluble, many people choose to take it with food, although Ubiquinol soft gels already contain a small amount of fat in the form of oil.
Most people can take Ubiquinol CoQ10 at any time of the day. Although the nutrient plays a vital role in the production of cellular energy, it will not give the rush of energy you might expect from something like caffeine (a stimulant).
Take Ubiquinol after eating, preferably in the morning or later n the day. If you already have difficulty falling asleep, avoid taking Ubiquinol in the evening.
