CoQ10 Background and Application

CoQ10, or ubiquinone, is a vitamin-like substance found in nearly all cells in the human body. Discovered in 1957, it is involved in mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (ATP, or energy production), scavenging antioxidants, and preventing lipid peroxidation. The highest concentrations of CoQ10 are in the heart, brain, liver, and kidney – organs with high energy requirements. Used as an approved drug for Congestive Heart Failure in Japan since 1974, many today use it for its benefits for heart health, Parkinson’s disease and antioxidant function.


Mechanisms of Action

CoQ10 is “an essential cofactor in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, where it accepts electrons from complex I and II, an activity that is vital for the production of ATP.1” Its antioxidant function protects cell membranes. It is estimated that over 60% of an oral dose of supplemental CoQ10 is excreted in the feces, and its absorption is highly dependent on food intake – namely, CoQ10 is best absorbed with concurrent intake of dietary fat. CoQ10 can enter the brain tissue. According to the PDR, “it takes about three weeks of daily dosing with CoQ10 to reach maximal serum concentrations, which then plateau with continuous daily dosing.1


Research Summaries

CoQ10 “has been indicated in the treatment of cardiac, neurologic, oncologic and immunologic disorders2.” Research has shown that CoQ10 supplementation with 1,200 mg reduced the level of disability and slows the progressive deterioration in Parkinson’s disease patients3. Additional research demonstrates that CoQ10 appears to lower blood glucose, affect exercise tolerance, and affect learning4,5,6.


Cardiovascular Health

Research shows correlations between low serum CoQ10 levels and the severity of heart disease in patients. CoQ10 protects against oxidative damage to LDL cholesterol,1 and this may contribute to its heart health effects. LDL oxidation is known to be atherogenic. Additionally, numerous studies cite lowered blood pressure in patients with hypertension who consume supplemental CoQ10. A review of eight trials revealed a mean decrease in systolic (16 mm Hg) and diastolic (10 mm Hg) blood pressure of patients with essential hypertension receiving CoQ10 at various doses2. It also has been shown to improve clinical parameters related to Congestive Heart Failure, including dyspnea, edema and frequency of hospital admissions. Finally, many patients with high cholesterol on statin drugs exhibit lower levels of serum CoQ10 due to statin drugs’ depletion of CoQ10 levels along with lowering serum cholesterol, and may make patients with heart failure especially vulnerable.  



CoQ10 may exert blood glucose lowering effects via lowering oxidative stress. One trial found improvement in HgbA1C levels in diabetic patients consuming 200 mg CoQ10 per day4.
