To determine the daily dose, we have to look at how the dose impacts your heart's ejection fraction. That's the percentage volume pumped out per beat. A normal heart's ejection fraction is 60+%. But sometimes that amount falls to below 30%. When you get below 25%, your life hangs in the balance. Any improvement, no matter how small, would be a terrific boon to your body.
A review of 11 CoQ10 studies has confirmed that a 3.7% improvement in ejection fraction and a 0.28 Liter/minute increase in heart output. In patients not taking ACE inhibitor drugs, the ejection fraction improvement was even greater at 6.74%. Dosage in the studies ranged from 60 mg per day to 200 mg per day.
It is a travesty that most conventional cardiologists still refuse to this nutrient. But even if they do, they're looking at these dosages, which isn't enough. The doses used in these studies, in my opinion, are too small. I use 300 mg-600 mg per day for conditions as serious as CHF. If you have CHF, be sure you take these doses.
