Does Co-Q10 really work?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Co-enzyme Q10 helps prevent damage to lipids on the surface of the skin. It's good to see Co-Q10 as an ingredient in skin products that you're going to buy. But remember there was 10 times as much Co-Q10 sold last year as there was real Co-Q10 produced and purified -- so most products listing it on the label are fakes. Check www.consumerlab.com or look for the USP-verified symbol on the bottle to ensure you are getting the ingredients for which you are paying. After 2011, the FDA will be monitoring to ensure what is on the label is what is in the bottle, but you should start earlier than that.
