Mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, and inflammation are all factors in the development and progression of Multiple Sclerosis. Adequate Coenzyme Q10 intake is needed for normal mitochondrial function, for antioxidant defense, and for protection against inflammation.
CoQ10’s melting point is about 118 degrees Fahrenheit, much higher than body temperature. Below 118 degrees, CoQ10 clumps together into crystals. We cannot absorb CoQ10 crystals; we can only absorb single molecules. For absorption, the CoQ10 supplement formulation is important.
Studies show beneficial health effects of Coenzyme Q10 supplements for heart failure patients, healthy senior citizens, and patients with low-energy syndrome and fatigue disorders, fertility disorders, and migraine headaches. Choose a supplement with documented good absorption.
Daily supplementation with 100 to 200 mg of Coenzyme Q10 reduces fasting glucose, fasting insulin, and insulin resistance values. Data from 2,424 study participants show that the beneficial effects of Coenzyme Q10 on glucose control are especially apparent in diabetes patients.
