90 to 200 micrograms of CoQ10 per day. I usually recommend it for fertility up to 600 supposed to be well tolerated and safe.

According to research studies, we tend to see improvements within the range of about 100 to 600mg per day. A good place to start could be perhaps around the 200-300mg point. If you are wanting to go for the higher dose it might be worth speaking to your specialist to see if this is appropriate for you. We can find coenzyme Q10 in some foods, but actually the levels that we find in food do tend to be much lower than what we find in the doses that have been used in these clinical trials and have shown benefit. So if you are wanting to take coenzyme Q10, it is probably through the supplement that you would want to consider to get the results that we have seen in clinical trials.

About this question:

How important is careful dosing of CoQ10 for infertile patients?

Supplements thanks to “over the counter” accessibility are very tempting in terms of solving any medical problem. Some are promising us great outcomes but there are no studies done to support that. How about CoQ10? Is it really working?
