CoQ10 Lowers Blood Pressure in a Systematic Review of the Research

Study Title: "Blood pressure lowering efficacy of coenzyme Q10 for primary hypertension."
Number of Participants: 96 patients with primary high blood pressure
Length of Study: 3 clinical trials lasting at least 3 weeks
Type of Study: Systematic Review of double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled parallel or crossover trials
Publication: The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews
Study Result: Treatment with coenzyme Q10 in subjects with systolic BP (SBP) > 140 mm Hg or diastolic BP (DBP) > 90 mm Hg resulted in mean decreases in systolic blood pressure of 11 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure of 7 mm Hg

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a well-researched nutrient in cardiovascular health. Supplementation has been shown in numerous studies to improve heart function in conditions like heart failure, angina, coronary artery disease, and high blood pressure.

In a systematic review of 3 clinical studies involving 96 patients with primary high blood pressure (>140 systolic and >90 diastolic), CoQ10 was compared to placebo to determine its effectiveness in lowering blood pressure. The review found a mean decrease in systolic blood pressure of 11 mm Hg and a decrease in diastolic blood pressure of 7 mm Hg.

Editor’s Note: CoQ10 is perhaps the most powerful nutrient for improving heart function, especially in cases of heart failure and angina. It is highly recommended that patients undergoing statin therapy for high cholesterol supplement with CoQ10, since a dangerous side effect of statin drugs is a reduction of CoQ10 in the body.
