Research Into Coenzyme Q10 Provides Conflicting Evidence Of Health Benefits

April 13, 2010: 11:08 PM EST
There is a growing body of scientific evidence that supports at least some of the health claims of the antioxidant Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Research, some of it preliminary, has shown that CoQ10 supplements may lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, hypertension and migraine headaches, and could be used to treat heart failure and neurological diseases. CoQ10 appears to help the immune system lessen the heart-damaging effects of anti-cancer drugs, and it may help reduce headaches and treat muscular dystrophy and periodontal disease. But two decades of research into CoQ10’s impact on heart disease have been somewhat inconclusive. Some studies have shown that CoQ10 helps lower blood pressure, while some have found no significant impact on heart failure or angina. And seven clinical trials showed that CoQ10 did not boost athletic performance.
