Signs You Might Benefit from CoQ10

If you already know that you have a nutrient deficiency or a genetic defect in how your body processes CoQ10, you could benefit from taking CoQ10 regularly. CoQ10 can also help relieve mitochondrial illnesses, statin treatment's side effects, and age-related oxidative stress. CoQ10 can also be beneficial if you are currently ill and notice your tissues working overtime as a consequence.

 

CoQ10 Side Effects, Risks, and Interactions

According to the Mayo Clinic, CoQ10 is generally considered safe and has few side effects.

If you have chronic diabetes, liver or kidney problems, or heart failure, do not take CoQ10 without a doctor's supervision, as it may lower blood pressure and blood glucose levels. Also, check with your doctor before taking CoQ10 if you are currently taking blood-thinning anticoagulant drugs or thyroid medications or undergoing chemotherapy treatment. CoQ10 is not recommended for children or pregnant or breastfeeding women. Side effects of diarrhea, heartburn, nausea, or loss of appetite after taking CoQ10 are common and typically mild.
