General Information on Taking CoQ10

Considerations for people taking CoQ10 include the following:
  • Because the manufacturing of supplements such as CoQ10 is not closely regulated, it is important to choose a trustworthy manufacturer of your supplements. It is a good idea to look for the "USP" symbol, as this means that the supplement has been tested and contains the right ingredients in the right amounts.
  • There is a large variation in the cost of CoQ10 supplements, from relatively inexpensive to very expensive. However, price is not always an indication of quality. Your pharmacist is a good source of information about which supplement manufacturers are the most reputable and trustworthy.
  • CoQ10 probably absorbs better when it is taken with a fat-containing meal. Try to have at least a little food that contains some fat when taking your CoQ10 supplement.
  • If you have any chronic health problems or take any prescription medications, you should check with your healthcare provider before taking CoQ10.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or CoQ10 dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider.
