Coenzyme Q-10: A novel therapeutic approach for Fibromyalgia? Case series with 5 patients – Source: Mitochondrion, Apr 7, 2011

Coenzyme Q-10 (CoQ-10) is an essential electron carrier in the mitochondrial respiratory chain and a strong antioxidant.

Low CoQ-10 levels have been detected in patients with Fibromyalgia (FM).

The purpose of the present work was to assess the effect of CoQ-10 on symptoms of five patients with FM.

Patients were evaluated clinically with Visual Analogical Scale of pain (VAS), and Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ).

Patients with CoQ-10 deficiency showed a statistically significant reduction of symptoms after CoQ-10 treatment during 9 months (300mg/day).

Determination of deficiency and consequent supplementation in FM may result in clinical improvement.

Further analysis involving more scientifically rigorous methodology will be required to confirm this observation.

not a surprise

This isn't a surprise to those of us with fibro and ME/CFS that used Co-Q-10 with much success. Since it's an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, it reduces the already super-elevated inflammation that our bodies produce for some unknown reason. By reducing the inflammation, the pain is reduced. The same thing happens for the other anti-inflammatories like fish oil and quercetin. This is also why arthritis sufferers find relief from the same supplements.
