Re: Parkinsons and CQ10
While CoQ10 supplements are all but an essential part of any complete attempt at a supplement regimen designed to combat both the symptoms and underlying causes of Parkinson's Disease, it's an unfortunate fact that lower levels are essentially ineffective. In other words, CoQ10 qualifies as one of the few supplements about which it could be said that it's better to not take any at all than to take too little--and as our first member posted---that's prohibitively expensive. I would agree, incidentally, on the amount that member recommended as effective. Doses of less than around 1200mg/day have shown to produce neither any relief from symptoms, nor any slowing of the degenerative progression of the disease.
