Researchers collected data from 40 young people with chronic kidney disease associated with a rare genetic mutation that causes CoQ10 deficiency. These patients were treated with supplemental CoQ10, and the results compared to a similar group of patients that had not received supplemental CoQ10 treatment.
Results: CoQ10 treatment decreased protein levels in urine (a sign of kidney damage) by 88%.
After 5 years, 38% of the CoQ10 group had progressed to kidney failure, versus 81% of the group that did not receive CoQ10.
In previously published studies in patients with chronic kidney disease, CoQ10 supplementation was associated with reduced oxidative stress, inflammation, HbA1c, and improved heart function (chronic kidney disease doubles the risk of heart disease).
How to Use CoQ10:
100 mg daily of CoQ10 with gamma cyclodextrin (increases CoQ10 absorption by 8 times=800%) for general health.
Consider increasing to 200 mg daily for serious, chronic kidney or heart disease.
