Coenzyme Q10 adjunctive treatment of chronic heart failure patients significantly improves their symptoms and survival [Mortensen 2014]. A recent survey of the scientific literature shows that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation is safe, well-tolerated, and effective as an adjunctive treatment in various disease conditions that involve high cellular and tissue demands for energy and in diseases involving oxidative stress and inflammation [Garrido-Maraver 2014].
Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally occurring essential nutrient. In human cells, it is a vital co-factor in the process of ATP energy generation and one of the most important lipid antioxidants. In this article, I summarize briefly the results of some of the recent scientific research using Coenzyme Q10 as an active treatment compared to a placebo treatment.
