Question: Can one take supplements every second day rather than daily? I am taking Coenzyme q10 150 mg every day and I am finding it too strong. If I take it every second day will I be missing out on its effect? I am taking it to lower blood pressure.
Answer: Each person is different and is supplement is different. In the case of CoQ10, too high a dose can cause overstimulation and insomnia. I prefer using 50 mg a day rather than 150 mg. This way it is less likely for this nutrient to cause the side effects. There are better options than CoQ10 for reducing blood pressure.
