Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) or ubiquinone is found in the mitochondria and as a component of the electron transport chain plays an important role in aerobic respiration.

Evidence[edit | edit source]

Improvements in fatigue scores with CoQ10 and NADH. Souce: Castro-Marrero et al. (2016), Clinical Nutrition 35(4):826-834.

A trial of 50 mg CoQ10 taken with 5mg NADH twice daily for eight weeks found improvements in exercise performance/less exercise intolerance and a less fatigue and improved cognitive function, but those in the placebo group had better sensory and affective pain scores.[1]

Plasma CoQ10 was found to be significantly lower in ME/CFS patients than in normal controls and correlated with symptom severity.[2] A literature review found that CoQ10 was marginally deficient in people with chronic fatigue syndrome.[3]

Ubiquinol-10 supplementation can improve autonomic nervous function and cognitive function in chronic fatigue syndrome.[4]

double blinded trial A clinical trial is double blinded if neither the participants nor the researchers know which treatment group they are allocated to until after the results are interpreted. This reduces bias. (Learn more: www.nottingham.ac.uk)
