What Is Coenzyme Q10 Used For?

Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 for Parkinson's Disease
Some studies have shown that high doses of coenzyme Q10 may help to slow down the progression of Parkinson's disease. In particular, people who took coenzyme Q10 had less of a decline in mental and physical functioning, compared to people who were not taking it. However, some studies have not shown any benefit for Parkinson's disease. More information is needed before coenzyme Q10 can be recommended as a treatment for this condition.
 
Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 for Migraines
Studies suggest that taking coenzyme Q10 daily may help prevent migraine headaches in adults and children. However, the supplement does not seem to lessen the severity or duration of migraine headaches. More research is necessary before coenzyme Q10 is recommended for this use.
 
Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 for Male Infertility
Early research seems to suggest that coenzyme Q10 may be useful for men who have infertility problems due to poor sperm motility. Taking it for at least six months may improve sperm motility.
 
Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 for Aging and Lifespan Prolongation
Coenzyme Q10 levels decline as people age. In some bacteria, supplementation may prolong lifespan, but this is not true in rodents. It is not known if supplementation has any effect on lifespan in humans.
 
Coenzyme Q10 is sometimes claimed to be a miracle cure-all and fountain of youth. While research suggests that the supplement may be beneficial for some conditions associated with aging, it should not be expected to slow down or reverse the aging process.
