Coenzyme Q10: Superstar Natural Blood Pressure Lowering Therapy

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.
