CoQ10 may help repetitive Strain Injury

Coenzyme Q10 is a useful antioxidant that helps to keep our muscles and other connective tissue healthy and free from damage. In addition, CoQ10 has also been shown to have important wound healing properties. It does this by increasing cell proliferation as well as fibroblast mobility.

Fibroblasts are cells which produce substances used to make the collagen and ground substance that give tissue its structural integrity, and help to keep it hydrated enough to receive a continuous flow of healing resources. In addition, fibroblasts help to regulate inflammatory responses, including the switch from acute inflammation that is usually quickly resolvable, to chronic and persistent inflammation.2Through this influence on our fibroblasts, our coenzyme Q10 levels may therefore be a factor in whether an injury or strain is rapidly healed, or whether it becomes a long term complaint that is difficult to shift.

This means that coenzyme Q10 may be useful in resolving inflammation and injury throughout the body, from tennis elbow to muscle sprains to repetitive strain injury (RSI). Coenzyme Q10 has also been shown to regulate gene expression in skeletal muscle and so affect its behaviour and wound healing capacity.3 Its additional role in improving energy production in the cells’ mitochondria would logically help to fuel all this activity.

The most active form of coenzyme Q10 is ubiquinol, as opposed to the more commonly available ubiquinine. For more information, see our newsletter “Coenzyme Q10 – the crucial cog in the wheel that keeps us moving.”
