Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10) is a compound found naturally in the energy-producing center of the cell known as the mitochondria. Co-Q10 is involved in the making of an important molecule known as 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. Antioxidants such as CoQ10 can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.

Co-Q10 boosts energy, enhances the immune system, and acts as an antioxidant. A growing body of research suggests that using Coenzyme Q10 supplements alone or in combination with other drug therapies and nutritional supplements supports the body’s health in the following areas:

Promote Healthy Heart 
Researchers believe that the beneficial effect of Co-Q10 in the promoting a healthy heart is due to its ability to improve energy production in cells, inhibit blood clot formation, and act as an antioxidant. One important study, for example, found that people who received daily Co-Q10 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 supplements.

Healthy Cholesterol Support
Levels of Co-Q10 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 Co-Q10 in the body. Taking Co-Q10 supplements can correct the deficiency caused by statin medications without affecting the medication's positive effects on cholesterol levels.

Periodontal Health
Gum disease is a widespread problem that is associated with swelling, bleeding, pain, and redness of the gums. Studies have shown that people with gum disease tend to have low levels of Co-Q10 in their gums. In a few studies involving small numbers of subjects, Co-Q10 supplements caused faster healing and tissue repair. Additional studies are needed to evaluate the effectiveness of Co-Q10 when used together with traditional therapy for periodontal disease.

Parkinson’s Support
A multi-center study published in the Oct. 15, 2002 issue of the American Medical Association's Archives of Neurology, provide the first evidence that Coenzyme Q10 might slow the progression of the disease. Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the brain in which patients develop tremor, slowness of movement and stiffness of muscles. It affects approximately 1 percent of Americans over the age of 65. Although certain drugs, such as levodopa, can reduce the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, no treatment has been shown to slow the progressive deterioration in function.

Over the past several years, research by Shults, Haas and Beal showed that mitochondrial function is impaired in patients with Parkinson's disease and coenzyme Q10 levels are reduced in the mitochondria of parkinsonian patients. Beal and Shults studied coenzyme Q10 in an animal model of Parkinson's disease and found that it could protect the part of the brain affected by the disorder.

In the Parkinson Study Group national clinical trial, 80 Parkinson’s patients who had early disease and did not yet need medications typically used to treat Parkinson's disease (such as levodopa), were randomly assigned to receive coenzyme Q10 four times a day at a dosage of 300, 600 or 1200 mg/day, or a placebo, also taken four times a day. Prior to beginning the study, the patients were evaluated with a medical history, physical exam, laboratory tests, and a battery of clinical assessments of Parkinson's disease. Participants were reevaluated with tests to assess the severity of the Parkinson's disease at regular intervals and followed until the time that they needed treatment with medications used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, or for a maximum of 16 months.

By the eighth month visit, the scores among the four groups had clearly separated and established a pattern of the groups taking the lowest and intermediate dosages (300 and 600 mg/day) being similar and lower than placebo and the scores for the group receiving the highest dosage (1200 mg/day) being substantially lower than the other groups. The lower score reflected less impairment and better function. This pattern persisted to the end of the study. The benefit was seen in assessment of mental function and mood, activities of daily living and motor skills.

If the drug had merely been ameliorating symptoms --while the disease continued unchecked to kill nerve cells -- the researchers would have expected the initial, first-month check-up to reveal improvement in the coenzyme Q10 groups. Since that was not the case, Shults hypothesized that the drug might have slowed the underlying progression of the disease over the 16-month period of the study.

Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take one to three softgels per day or as directed by your healthcare professional.
