Coenzyme Q10 and MS (multiple sclerosis)

What do we know about MS?  It is a disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord.  It is two to three times more common in women than in men. Depending on the nerve damage, people with MS may lose the ability to walk independently.  There is no cure. Fatigue and depression are common symptoms. Now, a study shows that large daily doses of Coenzyme Q10 can reduce the extent of depression and fatigue in MS patients.

Pilot study news:  A new study shows that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation reduces depression and fatigue in multiple sclerosis patients.  This is good news indeed.  Moreover, these are research results that make sense.

We know that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation improves the symptoms of both chronic fatigue syndrome patients [Castro-Marrero 2016] and fibromyalgia patients [Cordero 2013].  At least one study has shown that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation improves the symptoms of depression [Forester 2012].
