Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Coenzyme Q supplements benefit patients with heart failure

    There’s evidence that blood levels of coenzyme Q10 decrease in people with advanced chronic heart failure.

    Now we know that CoQ10 supplements help and exercise helps more.

    • The effects of CoQ10 100 mg three times daily with and without exercise were studied in 23 people with heart failure.
    • Both treatments had positive effects on the heart.
    • CoQ10 combined with exercise raised CoQ10 blood levels more than CoQ10 alone and had a more pronounced positive effect on the heart.

    One more thing.

    • No side effects were reported.
