The Supplement Cardiologist’s love

CoEnzyme Q10 – A substance your body produces naturally in small amounts – decreased mortality rates among heart-failure patients by about half, according to a widely lauded study presented at the International Heart Failure 2013 Congress. “Coenzyme Q10 may be so beneficial because it encourages heart cells to produce more energy,” explains Clyde Yancy, MD, chief of cardiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, although he feels more research is needed if this is to become widely recommended for patients. The study found that people with chronic heart failure who took 100 mg of CoQ10 supplements three times a day (along with their regular medications) were about half as likely to suffer major cardiovascular complications as people who didn’t take the supplement.
