CoQ10 for Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Just straight to business for this post...
Fibromyalgia trigger-points

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is an essential component in the biochemical chain that produces energy, and the reduced form (ubiquinol) is a strong fat-soluble antioxidant. Low CoQ10 levels have been detected in fibromyalgia patients.

The purpose of this new study was to assess the effect of CoQ10 on symptoms of five patients with fibromyalgia. So yes, this was a very small study, but may help set-up the basis for larger, better quality studies on fibromyalgia in the future.

The results showed that, in patients with CoQ10 deficiency, a statistically significant reduction of symptoms occurred after 9 months of treatment with CoQ10 (300 mg/day). The researchers suggest that determination of CoQ10 deficiency and consequent supplementation in fibromyalgia patients may result in clinical improvement.
