Q10 is vital to energy production; it is also an excellent antioxidant. These features imply that it could benefit any organ system in your body. In the current study, 200 mg per day of the ubiquinol form of Q10 improved the function of the pancreas of type 2 diabetic patients, resulting in improved blood sugar metabolism.
The researchers demonstrated a significant reduction in hemoglobin A1c, a key test showing how well blood sugar is managed over a period of weeks. This result was due to the improved efficiency of insulin production in these patients.
This study suggests that ubiquinol Q10 can be used as a tool to help improve blood sugar metabolism.
