Parkinsons Disease Home > Coenzyme Q10 Supplements

Coenzyme Q10 is a vitamin-like substance found naturally in the body. Most people provide enough to meet their nutritional needs; however, in some cases supplementation is necessary. For example, supplemental coenzyme Q10 may be needed in people with mitochondrial disease, Parkinson's, or male infertility. The product may also help slow down some of the effects of aging.
Coenzyme Q10 is not appropriate for everyone, and side effects are possible. Adverse reactions may include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. If you feel you may need supplementation, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
