What to Expect from CoQ10?
Last updated November 26, 2013
Coenzyme Q10, better known as CoQ10, is a supplement that has gotten quite a bit of publicity in recent years. It’s a powerful antioxidant that occurs naturally in the body. As we age, however, our natural levels of CoQ10 decline. For this reason many people take it as a supplement for a variety of purposes. Let’s take a look at some of the potential benefits of taking CoQ10.
Heart Health and High Blood Pressure
One reason why some people decide to take a CoQ10 supplement is for heart health*. Studies have suggested that people who take CoQ10 after a heart attack may reduce the chances of having future heart-related problems*. There is also some evidence that taking CoQ10 regularly can decrease blood pressure. It may also be effective for treating high cholesterol and reduce symptoms of angina*.
CoQ10 and Fertility
One exciting area of research concerns CoQ10 and fertility*. There is the exciting possibility that CoQ10 supplements can help with fertility, especially in older women who are having trouble conceiving*. A number of research groups published reserach findings on CoQ10 for male fertility in the past 20 years, and now CoQ10 supplementation is coming into focus with the purpose of improving fertility in women*.
Among the forerunners in this field is Robert Casper, MD, from Samuel Lunenfeld Research Center in Toronto, Canada. Dr. Casper’s research suggests that supplementation with 1,000 mg of CoQ10 per day may improve the quality of eggs in older women with low ovarian reserve*. Dr. Casper’s research forms the basis of the high-quality supplement, OVOENERGEN. CoQ10 supplement provides antioxidant protection for eggs and supports eggs’ energy metabolism*.
Other CoQ10 Benefits
Since CoQ10 is a nutrient that is essential for cell health*, it has a wide range of benefits affecting that whole body. Medline Health, the National Institute of Health’s information page on CoQ10 lists a number of possible benefits of CoQ10 supplementation. Some of these include:
- Gums – May prevent or reverse gum disease*.
- Parkinson’s Disease – May help slow decline in patients with early symptoms of the disease*.
- Migraines – Can prevent migraines and reduce their severity*.
- Immune System – Strengthens the immune system in healthy people and even those suffering from disorders such as HIV*.
