What’s Coenzyme Q10?
Coenzyme Q10, also known as CoQ10, is a compound that helps generate energy in your cells.
CoQ10 is made by our body (though production tends to decline as you get older) and stored in your mitochondria, the energy production center of your cells. It plays a critical role in making adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a chemical that powers many processes in your body, such as muscle contraction.
Health Benefits of Coenzyme Q10?
1. Treat heart conditions and heart failure
Heart failure doesn’t just happen. It’s the result of a buildup of damage from heart conditions such as coronary artery disease or hypertension (high blood pressure).
Over time, these conditions change the heart’s structure or function until it’s no longer able to pump blood throughout the body as it should. But studies show that CoQ10 may be able to help.
One that involved 420 participants with moderate to severe heart failure found that the enzyme was able to reduce their symptoms and even lower their risk of dying from cardiovascular events.
Participants of another study treated with CoQ10 had fewer hospitalizations for worsening heart failure or symptoms than the placebo group.
Researchers believe CoQ10 is able to improve the condition of patients with heart failure because it helps restore proper energy production and heart function while also protecting against oxidative damage.
2. Help lower blood pressure
Abnormally high blood pressure, or hypertension, is one risk factor for cardiovascular disease. But CoQ10 may be able to boost heart health by lowering these numbers in hypertensive patients, reducing their risk of heart disease.
One systematic review of 12 clinical trials found that CoQ10 was able to lower systolic blood pressure by up to 17 mm Hg, the bigger indicator of heart disease risk, but also diastolic blood pressure by up to 11 mm Hg.
3. May help treat Parkinson’s
CoQ10 was able to slow the development of disabilities in patients with Parkinson’s disease in one small clinical study. All doses of the enzyme showed a significant benefit over placebo, but the largest dose (1200 mg of CoQ10 per day) was most effective.
4. Reduce symptoms of statin-induced myopathy
Statins are a type of cholesterol-lowering drug commonly prescribed for people with high-risk factors for cardiovascular disease. They can be very effective at lowering blood lipids, but they’re not without side effects.
One of the most serious of the potential side effects of statin drugs is myopathy, a condition in which muscle fibers don’t function properly. The result is muscle pain and a feeling of fatigue and muscle weakness.
But a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials shows that CoQ10 may help mitigate this effect. People with statin-induced myopathy given the supplement had fewer symptoms than those in the placebo groups.
5. Experience fewer migraines
Researchers believe there’s a connection between mitochondrial dysfunction and some types of migraine headaches. And migraine sufferers have been found to have lower levels of CoQ10 than those who don’t get the debilitating headaches. In fact, their levels are low enough to be considered a CoQ10 deficiency.
But adding CoQ10 into your supplement regimen may reduce migraines. Oral supplements of the enzyme successfully alleviated migraine symptoms compared to placebo in a small study. Participants taking CoQ10 experienced fewer headache days, migraine attack frequency, and incidents of headache-induced nausea.
