CoQ10 - Coenzyme Q-10 Remedies

CoQ10 is made naturally in the body, but Coenzyme Q10 deficiency may occur due to disease, low dietary intake, or high CoQ10 use by the body. Symptoms of deficiency include heart failure, high blood pressure, and chest pain.

Blood Pressure: There is some evidence that the supplement CoQ10 may help to reduce high blood pressure. Take 100 milligrams CoQ10 twice daily for 12 weeks. CoQ10 significantly reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure (mean reduction 6.1 mm Hg and 2.9 mm Hg respectively). There was also a reduction in HbA1C, a marker for long-term glycemic control.
Health Warning: However, always consult your doctor first.
Health Warning: CoQ10 may increase the risk of bleeding when taken with drugs that increase the risk of bleeding. Some examples include aspirin, anticoagulants ("blood thinners") such as warfarin (Coumadin) or heparin, anti-platelet drugs such as clopidogrel (Plavix) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve). CoQ10 may also reduce the effectiveness of warfarin, which will increase risk of blood clot. CoQ10 may affect blood sugar levels. Caution is advised when using medications that may also affect blood sugar. People taking drugs for diabetes by mouth or insulin should be monitored closely by a qualified healthcare professional, including a pharmacist. Medication adjustments may be necessary.
Clinical research indicates that introducing CoQ10 prior to heart surgery, including bypass surgery and heart transplantation can reduce damage caused by free radicals, strengthen heart function, and lower the incidence of irregular heart beat (arrhythmias) during the recovery phase. You should not take any supplements before surgery unless your health care provider approves.
