CoQ10 may help slow Parkinsons

Coenzyme Q10 has been shown to slow down functional decline in Parkinson’s patients. Parkinson’s disease is caused by the loss of brain cells that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine, and has obvious motor (movement-related) symptoms such as tremors, slowness and muscle rigidity. It can also result in symptoms such as pain, depression, constipation and sweating.

One study gave Parkinson’s patients varying levels of coenzyme Q10 together with vitamin E, or a placebo of just vitamin E on its own. The group that received the largest dose of coenzyme Q10, 1,200 mg per day, had 44 per cent less decline in both mental function and motor function, as well as ability to carry out daily activities such as feeding or dressing themselves. The greatest benefit was seen with activities of daily living. The groups that received lower levels of Q10 benefited in a similar way but to a lesser extent.1

The more active form of coenzyme Q10, ubiquinol, has also been shown to protect against a specific neurotoxin called MPTP that has been associated with Parkinson’s disease.
