Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a powerful antioxidant that is required in almost every cell in the body. Antioxidants, such as CoQ10, can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. CoQ10 may help in heart-related conditions, because it can improve energy production in cells and prevent blood clot formation.
What is Coenzyme Q10 used for ?
Coenzyme Q10 is used to treat heart and blood vessel conditions such as congestive heart failure, chest pain (angina), and high blood pressure. Coenzyme Q10 helps to increase energy, because it has a role in producing ATP, a molecule in body cells that functions like a rechargeable battery in the transfer of energy.
Congestive Heart Failure :
Many studies have shown that there is evidence demonstrating that CoQ10 may help treat heart failure when combined with conventional medications. Heart failure can cause blood to pool in parts of the body, such as the lungs and legs. It can also cause shortness of breath. Several clinical studies suggest that CoQ10 supplements help reduce swelling in the legs ; reduce fluid in the lungs, making breathing easier ; and increase exercise capacity in people with heart failure. It should be noted that CoQ10 should never be used solely to treat heart failure, it should be used in conjunction with other conventional medications. You should always consult with a health care provider before taking it for this condition.
High Blood Pressure :
Several clinical studies suggest that CoQ10 may lower blood pressure. In 12 clinical studies, researchers concluded that CoQ10 has the potential to lower systolic blood pressure by up to 17 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by 10 mm Hg. However it is important to note, CoQ10 should never be used solely to treat blood pressure. You should always consult with a health care provider before taking it for this condition.
CoQ10 supplements may improve heart health and blood sugar and help manage high blood pressure in people with diabetes. Two studies found that 100 mg of CoQ10 twice daily improved long-term blood sugar control. If you have diabetes, talk to your doctor before using CoQ10.
