Coenzyme Q10 is a nutritional supplement is a very effective natural therapy to lower elevated blood pressure. In this blog post, I am going to summarize a study that demonstrates just how amazingly effective coenzyme Q10 is for people with hypertension.
Dr. Peter Langsjoen is a cardiologist that I met about a decade ago and I have followed his work very closely ever since. Since Dr. Langsjoen is a cardiologist, he has a lot of patients with high blood pressure. A number of years ago, he selected 109 of his patients with hypertension and added coenzyme Q10 to their existing medications. The average dose used was 225 mg/day. In most of these patients, the average time from the initial of diagnosis of high blood pressure was 9.2 years. Many patients were taking 2 or 3 blood pressure-lowering medications to keep their blood pressure within acceptable ranges.
How effective was coenzyme Q10? Within the first 6 months, 51% of the patients were able to discontinue from 1 to 3 blood pressure medications, with an average time of 4.4 months.
As a pharmacist, I have to be cautious about recommending CoQ10 to patients who are taking blood pressure medications. I emphasize that they must communicate with their physician because coenzyme Q10 is so effective, they will need to reduce the dose of their medications and/or discontinue them at some point. It is illegal for me to advise people about changing the dose of their medications. That must be done by a physician. However, I feel my passion is to educate people about natural therapies so I share this study and encourage them to discuss it with their doctor.
The title of the study I have discussed is Treatment of Essential Hypertension with Coenzyme Q10.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is
one of the body's most important antioxidants and it is also required
for energy production in all cells. In this post, I will review a study
that reveals coenzyme Q10's remarkable ability to slow down the aging
process. Coenzyme Q10 is truly a remarkable life extension nutritional
supplement. I will also explain why most CoQ10 products have very low
rates of absorption. My readers can order highly absorable Bio-Quinone Q10 Gold at 20% discount.
CoQ10 Dramatically Extends Life Span: Studies
evaluating things that influence lifespan are difficult to conduct in
humans because they take too long. Instead, researchers use small animal
models which compresses the story into a much shorter time scale. I
want to discuss an experiment done with mice that reveals the power of
coenzyme Q10. This experiment was conducted by Emile Bliznakov, MD who
subsequently wrote a book titled The Miracle Nutrient: Coenzyme Q10.
