Coenzyme Q10 Reduces Cholesterol

Several studies have looked at coenzyme Q10 supplementation found significant benefits with various aspects of health and disease. The majority of these have singled out ubiquinol, the most active form of CoQ10, as the one to take in supplement form.

A recent German study took 53 healthy men with an average age of 30 and gave them daily ubiquinol supplements for 2 weeks. As their blood plasma levels of CoQ10 increased, their LDL cholesterol levels were reduced by 12.7%, a reduction that is “comparable to the described effects of plant sterols” say the researchers, who attribute this to CoQ10’s effect on gene expression.5 It was noted that the more common form of CoQ10 supplementation, ubiquinone, did not have the same beneficial effect.

People with high cholesterol are frequently prescribed statins, such as Simvastatin, Atorvastatin or Pravastatin. Research shows that statins significantly reduce plasma levels of both ubiquinone and ubiquinol, and so may negatively affect energy production, genetic expression and protection from damage in our blood vessels, as well as ubiquinol’s own cholesterol lowering activity. It is ironic that ubiquinol has been shown to lower cholesterol, and yet cholesterol medication will lower ubiquinol.
