A double-blind randomized controlled study tested 300 mg of Coenzyme Q10 per day in patients with heart disease to see if it could improve their circulation and antioxidant defense system. Researchers called the results “remarkable” in terms of the ability of Q10 to restore faulty antioxidant defense systems in the circulation, particularly in the test subjects with the most severe health problems. There was a significant improvement in vascular relaxation in the Q10 group, showing Q10 to be a superior heart-health supporting nutrient.

It is well known that statin cholesterol drugs induce Q10 deficiency, which is shown to cause circulatory distress and muscle weakness – hardly a desirable result. For quite some time, health professionals have recommended at least 100 mg of Q10 per day to offset the adverse effects of statin drugs. 

Particularly significant is research showing the ubiquinol form of coenzyme Q10 to reduce the most problematic type of small particle size LDL cholesterol1 by directly regulating gene expression involved with inflammation and fat metabolism.

Along with its heart healthy benefits, Q10 is vital for energy production, immunity, and cellular anti-aging. To truly support your cardiovascular fitness and general health, remember to take the high quality pharmaceutical grade Q10 used in studies and avoid cheap Q10 produced in China.
