CoQ10 Saves Heart Failure Patients

The highest concentrations of CoQ10 are found in the organs that work the hardest, including the heart.

One of the important discoveries about CoQ10 came back in the 1970s, when it was found that people with heart disease had low levels of the substance.

In 2013, Danish researchers presented strong evidence that CoQ10 plays a vital role in heart health. Their findings showed that the supplement cut the death rate in half in patients with congestive heart failure.

The researchers conducted a study on 420 patients with severe heart failure across Europe, Asia,
and Australia.

The patients were given either CoQ10 or a placebo, and followed for two years. The patients in both groups also continued to take their regular cardiac medications.

The patients that took CoQ10 saw a significant decrease in the number of hospitalizations, and about only 14 percent suffered from a major cardiovascular event, compared with 25 percent of the patients who received the placebo.

The study was presented at the European Society of Cardiology’s 2013 annual conference in Lisbon, Spain, where cardiologists hailed the findings and said that CoQ10 should be added to the drug regimen for all heart failure patients.

The biggest danger facing heart failure patients is that their hearts will weaken so much that their heartbeat will go into a dangerous irregularity, causing sudden cardiac death.

CoQ10 can help stabilize the heart and prevent that from happening.

There is also evidence that CoQ10 can help calm heartbeat irregularities. This would make sense because the enzyme improves energy production in the heart that can create rhythm disturbances and palpitations.

Magnesium helps with this as well, which is why I recommend both to my patients who are bothered by palpitations — the extra heartbeats we all experience, but are noticeable only to some.
