Co-enzyme Q10 (Co-Q10), is a fat-soluble, vitamin-like co-enzyme that is found in the energy-producing metabolic pathways of virtually all cells of the human body, thus earning Co-Q10 its other name, ubiquinone. Co-Q10 is also noted for its powerful antioxidant activity.
Doctors have been using Co-Q10 concurrently with standard medication in addressing the symptoms of congestive heart failure for the last four decades. In fact, Co-Q10 has been approved as a drug in Japan for the treatment of congestive heart failure since 1974, with a number of other nations following suite.
Placebo-controlled studies to date with Co-Q10 (including one study conducted in Italy which included 2,664 patients with congestive heart failure) have produced what scientists call `significantly positive results`. These results include diminished levels of fatigue, chest pain, dyspnea and palpitations. Treatment with Co-Q10 was even able to restore normal heart size and function in some of these patients - primarily those whose onset of congestive heart failure was relatively recent.
Studies have also examined the effects of Co-Q10 supplementation as an adjunct to conventional drug therapies for hypertension and other manifestations of cardiovascular disease.
The absorption of Co-Q10 has always been a challenge, with approximately 60% of orally consumed Co-Q10 being excreted in bowel movements. Lipid-based delivery systems can significantly overcome this obstacle.
