Dr. Oz said there is one antioxidant supplement all medical practitioners believe is completely safe to take (Didn’t they say that about all antioxidants before?).

Dr Oz: Ubiquinol Daily Dose Recommendation
Although ubiquinol is a powerful substance, Dr. Oz said it becomes more important to our bodies as we age because we are unable to produce as much of it as we did when we were younger. Dr. Oz’s daily dose recommendation for ubiquitol is 100 mg a day, which can be difficult to get through diet alone. You would need to eat seven pounds of beef or eight pounds of peanuts a day to get the suggested amount which means taking a supplement is probably the best way to get the right dose.
Dr. Oz recommended taking the supplement with a meal containing fat because it will help the body absorb the supplement.
