    CoQ10


    I had picked up some CoQ10 (Ubquionine) today hearing that it has benefits for cellular energy and BP etc. I was wondering if anyone has any experience using this and can attest to its effectiveness...Thanks in advance..

    The only subset of pathological HTN for which coenzyme q10 has shown any use is the exceptional minority whose elevated BP is the result of rampant superoxide radicals and subsequent NO-inactivation. Even so, large clinical studies have shown no significant benefit.

    Thanks - More reason no to buy it. CoQ10 and SAMe are both over rated ingreds IMO. The benefits of both don't justify the cost

    I read that, good article for sure. I even picked up a book on CoQ10, interesting information on electron transporter and potent antioxidant.

    COQ10 supplementation in healthy individuals is a lot like PQQ supplementation: largely worthless

    If one did supplement it, doesn't it take like 2-3 months to start seeing/getting the benefits since its the only antioxidant we internally synthesize?

    Sure, but do you have reason to believe that you have a CoQ10 deficiency?

    It's not the only antioxidant humans synthesize (i.e. glutathione peroxidase, catalase, ALA, SOD, et cetra).

    Enzymes that can act as antioxidants. I'm talking about the only lipid soluble antioxidant.

    Coop, not saying I believe I have a deficiency, I know it's expensive. Just asking haha

After three weeks, a daily amount of 50 to 100 mg tends to be a good daily maintenance dose for most individuals.

    After 40, I'd rather take Ubiquinol.

    THE BASICS: Ubiquinol is a reduced, more bioavailable form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a substance produced by the human body that's necessary for the basic functioning of cells. HEALTH BENEFITS: When we’re young, ubiquinol is the predominant form of CoQ10 in nearly every cell in our bodies. As we get older, our ability to efficiently produce both CoQ10 and its electron-rich ubiquinol form declines. This results in less cellular energy and diminished protection against oxidation, which can lead to cellular damage. CoQ10 levels tend to be low in patients with certain chronic conditions, including heart disease, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes. Statin drugs may also lower CoQ10 levels.Ubiquinol has been known to scientists since in the late 1950s. Research on ubiquinol appeared in scientific journals throughout the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, even though large quantities weren't commercially available. These early studies provided evidence of the critical roles ubiquinol plays in the production of cellular energy and protection against oxidative damage to DNA. Newer studies show that ubiquinol may benefit cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and mitochondrial disorders; diabetes; periodontal disease; and hypertension.WHAT YOU SHOULD TAKE: A review of the studies published to date consistently shows that, in comparison to conventional CoQ10, supplementation with ubiquinol results in increased bioavailability and higher cellular ubiquinol levels. Ubiquinol has only recently become available in large quantities in supplement form. The recommended dosage is typically 50—100 mg daily, taken with food, preferably with fat.- Robert J. Barry, Ph.D., former principle adviser for the National Institutes of Health

    Age, statin-use, or pathology in energy production are valid reasons to use ubiquinol. I don't understand why one would ever load CoQ10 then taper down to a maintenance dose. Longterm studies show adequate retention, and plus, it's still endogenously synthesized irrespective of dietary intake.
