Benefits of CoQ10 for Parkinson's Disease
Some studies have shown that high doses of CoQ10 may help to slow down the progression of Parkinson's disease. In particular, people who took CoQ10 had less of a decline in mental and physical functioning, compared to people who were not taking CoQ10. However, some studies have not shown any benefit of CoQ10 for Parkinson's disease. More information is needed before CoQ10 can be recommended as a treatment for this condition.
 
Benefits of CoQ10 for Migraines
Studies suggest that taking CoQ10 daily may help prevent migraine headaches in adults and children. However, CoQ10 does not seem to lessen the severity or duration of migraine headaches. More research is necessary before CoQ10 is recommended for this use.
 
Benefits of CoQ10 for Male Infertility
Early research seems to suggest that CoQ10 may be useful for men who have infertility problems due to poor sperm motility. Taking CoQ10 for at least six months may improve sperm motility.
 
Benefits of CoQ10 for Aging and Lifespan Prolongation
CoQ10 levels decline as people age. In some bacteria, CoQ10 supplementation may prolong lifespan, but this is not true in rodents. It is not known if CoQ10 supplementation has any effect on lifespan in humans.
 
CoQ10 is sometimes claimed to be a miracle cure-all and fountain of youth. While research suggests that CoQ10 may be beneficial for some conditions associated with aging, it should not be expected to slow down or reverse the aging process.
