Coenzyme Q 10 reduces the risk of dying after suffering from a heart attack

Nov 29, 2007

Six-hours after suffering with a heart attack forty-nine patients were randomly assigned to either hypothermia plus Coenzyme Q10 or hypothermia plus a placebo after CPR. The initial dosage of Coenzyme Q10 was 250mg which was followed by 150mg 3 times a day for 5 days. Coenzyme Q10 was safe and had no side effects but it did absolutely save lives. Three-months after their heart attack 68% of the patients supplemented with Coenzyme Q10 were still alive or 17 out of 25 patients, but only 29% of placebo patients were still alive or 7 out of 24. More of the Coenzyme Q10 group had good neurological function than those given a placebo. The study was published in the November 9th, 2004 issue of Circulation, a Journal of the American Heart Association.
