Coenzyme Q10

Definition: Coenzyme Q10 is a substance which resembles vitamin E and is found in living cells. Natural supplies of this particular compound decrease with age. Recent studies have found that re-supplying the body with coenzyme Q10 may significantly reduce hypertension and heart disease and enhance the immune system. Current studies are underway using coenzyme Q10 as a treatment for AIDS. In addition, this substance has been shown to enhance weight loss, heal periodontal disease, relive angina and inhibit the aging process on a cellular level. It has also demonstrated its ability to reduce the mortality rate of laboratory animals suffering from leukemia and tumors.

Applications: Cardiovascular disease, cancer, high blood pressure, respiratory disease, asthma, mental illness, Alzheimer's disease, candida, obesity, multiple sclerosis, periodontal disease, gastric ulcers, weakened immune systems and AIDS.

Recommendations: The most common form of coenzyme Q10 is in capsulized form. Soft gel caps that are lipid-based are recommended. This compound is also commonly included in antioxidant combinations and cardiovascular formulations.
