Description

CoQ10 is a vitamin-like substance that helps produce energy in our cells, via the mitochondria, and also acts as an antioxidant, helping to prevent cell damage in our body. As we age, the production of CoQ10 decreases. When CoQ10 levels in the cells are low, energy production may be reduced and oxidative stress increased which can be harmful to sperm and egg quality.

Studies show that CoQ10 may help improve the egg quality in women with advanced reproductive age or women with poor egg quality. It is believed that the CoQ10 may help reenergize the mitochondria in the egg supporting the processes necessary for healthy successful development upon fertilization.

For men, the studies have shown that supplementation with CoQ10, over a period of several months, helps to increase the sperm count, motility and morphology.



Use and Dosage:


For Women:

For overall health, studies have shown the recommended dosage is 100-300 mg/day. The dosage in studies looking at egg quality use up to 600 mg/day.

For Men:

The dosage used in the sperm study was 200 mg daily CoQ10 supplement.

CoQ10 is fat-soluble, so it is better absorbed when taken with a meal that contains oil or fat.



Cautions:

Do not take CoQ10 supplements without your doctor's approval, as the supplement has side effects and can interact with some prescription medications.

Side effects can include include nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, heartburn, diarrhea, loss of appetite, skin itching, rash, insomnia, headache, dizziness, itching, irritability, increased light sensitivity of the eyes, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms.

CoQ10 may lower blood sugar and blood pressure. If you are diabetic, hypoglycemia or have issues with your blood pressure, take CoQ10 only under the advisement of your doctor. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
