Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a compound found naturally in the energy-producing center of the cell known as
the mitochondria. CoQ10 is involved in the making of an important molecule known as adenosine
triphosphate (ATP). ATP serves as the cell’s major energy source and drives a number of biological processes
including muscle contraction and the production of protein. CoQ10 also works as an antioxidant.
Antioxidants are substances that scavenge free radicals, damaging compounds in the body that alter cell
membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death. Free radicals occur naturally in the body, but
environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, cigarette smoking, and air pollution) can also
increase the number of these damaging particles. Free radicals are believed to contribute to the aging process
as well as the development of a number of health problems including heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants
such as CoQ10 can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they
CoQ10 boosts energy, enhances the immune system, and acts as an antioxidant. Clinical research suggests
that using coenzyme Q10 supplements alone or in combination with other drug therapies and nutritional
supplements may help prevent or treat some of the following conditions:
Researchers believe that the beneficial effect of CoQ10 in the prevention and treatment of heart disease is
due to its ability to improve energy production in cells, inhibit blood clot formation, and act as an antioxidant.
One important clinical study, for example, found that people who received daily CoQ10 supplements within 3
days of a heart attack were significantly less likely to experience subsequent heart attacks and chest pain. In
addition, these same patients were less likely to die of heart disease than those who did not receive the
Heart failure (HF)
Levels of CoQ10 are low in people with congestive heart failure (HF), a debilitating disease that occurs when
the heart is not able to pump blood effectively. This can cause blood to pool in parts of the body, such as the
lungs and legs. Information from several clinical studies suggests that CoQ10 supplements help reduce
swelling in the legs, enhance breathing by reducing fluid in the lungs, and increase exercise capacity in
people with HF. Not all clinical studies agree, however. As a result, some experts conclude that CoQ10
supplements do not contribute any benefit to the usual conventional treatment for HF.
High blood pressure
Several clinical studies involving small numbers of people suggest that CoQfine may lower blood pressure.
However, it may take 4 – 12 weeks before any beneficial effect is observed.
Levels of CoQfine tend to be lower in people with high cholesterol compared to healthy individuals of the
same age. In addition, certain cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins (such as atorvastatin, cerivastatin,
lovastatin, pravastatin, simvastatin) appear to deplete natural levels of CoQ10 in the body. Taking CoQfine
supplements can correct the deficiency caused by statin medications without affecting the medication’s
positive effects on cholesterol levels.
CoQ10 supplements may improve heart health and blood sugar and help manage high cholesterol and high
blood pressure in individuals with diabetes. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease are all
common problems associated with diabetes. Despite some concern that CoQfine may cause a sudden and
dramatic drop in blood sugar (called hypoglycemia), two recent clinical studies of people with diabetes given
CoQ10, 200 mg 2 times daily, showed no hypoglycemic response.
Heart damage caused by chemotherapy
Several clinical studies suggest that CoQfine may help prevent heart damage caused by certain
chemotherapy drugs (namely Adriamycin or other athracycline medications). More clinical studies are
needed to further evaluate the effectiveness of CoQfine in preventing heart damage in cancer patients
Clinical research indicates that introducing CoQfine prior to heart surgery, including bypass surgery and
heart transplantation, can reduce damage caused by free radicals, strengthen heart function, and lower the
incidence of irregular heart beat (arrhythmias) during the recovery phase.
Studies of women with breast cancer suggest that CoQfine supplements (in addition to conventions.
treatment and a nutritional regimen including other antioxidants and essential fatty acids) may shrink
tumors, reduce pain associated with the condition, and cause partial remission in some individuals.
Periodontal (gum) disease
Gum disease is a widespread problem that is associated with swelling, bleeding, pain, and redness of
gums. Clinical studies have reported that people with gum disease tend to have low levels of CoQfine:
their gums. In a few clinical studies involving small numbers of subjects, CoQ10 supplements caused
faster healing and tissue repair. CoQfine is used in mouth rinse products for this condition.Other Preliminary clinical studies also suggest that CoQfine may:
1.) Improve immune function in individuals with immune deficiencies (such as acquired immunodeficiency
syndrome or AIDS) and chronic infections (such as yeast, bacteria, and viral infections)
2.) Increase sperm motility leading to enhanced fertility
3.) Be used as part of the treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease
4.) Reduce damage from stroke
5.) Boost athletic performance
6.) Enhance physical activity in people with fatigue syndromes
7.) Improve exercise tolerance in individuals with muscular dystrophy
8.) Improve symptoms of tinnitus, or ringing in the ears
9.) Be beneficial in cosmetics for healthy skin
10.) Delay the aging process and increase longevity
Clinical research in all of these areas is underway to determine whether CoQfine can be safeLy and effectively
used in people with these health problems and needs.
How to Take It:
Tor adults 19 years and older: The recommended dose for CoQfine supplementation is 30 – 200 mg daily.
:oenzyme CoQfine is fat-soluble so should be taken with a meal containing fat for optimal absorption. Also,
taking coenzyme Q10 at night may help with the body’s ability to use it.
