Recent research informs us that Coenzyme Q10 may battle fatigue after exercise and boost exercise performance and recovery. “Effects of Oral Coenzyme Q10 on Preventing the Accumulation of Lactic Acid Developing during the Exercise Performances of Endurance Skiing Athletes” studied 15 voluntary male athletes. Blood samples measured their levels of CoQ10, lactate, lactate dehydrogenase [LDH] , creatine phosphokinase (CPK), heart rate and blood pressure. LDH is an enzyme found in almost every cell in the body and changes sugar into energy. Regular and gradual exercise is considered to enhance performance and delays fatigue in proportion to the usage of CoQ10.

I loved your posts, both of them, on CQ10, because I have been taking it two years ago. I read a wonderful book of a female neuroscientist called Dr. Christiane Northrup, called The Wisdom of Menopause, and there she suggests that the income of CQ10, helps the female aging body, at a cardiovascular level, preventing also cognitive decline and protecting form the side effects of cholesterol drugs.
Thanks for coming up with the subject because I really believe in its benefits as we age!
