Peter Bongiorno, ND, Naturopathic Medicine, answeredDouble-blind clinic research studies report that supplementation with forms of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can help significantly decrease blood pressure in people who have hypertension (high blood pressure). Most of this research supplemented 100 mg of regular ubiquinone form of CoQ10 per day for at least ten weeks. The authors of these studies have indicated that treatment with CoQ10 may lower blood pressure by decreasing oxidative stress and balancing insulin response in patients with known high blood pressure who are receiving conventional antihypertensive (anti-high blood pressure) medication.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
