Antifatigue effects of Coenzyme Q10 during physical fatigue – Source: Nutrition, Feb 11, 2008

By Kei Mizuno, PhD, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • February 22, 2008


Objective: This study examined the effects of Coenzyme Q10 administration on physical fatigue.

Methods: In a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, three crossover design, 17 healthy volunteers were randomized to oral coenzyme Q10 (100 or 300 mg/d) or placebo administration for 8 days. As a fatigue-inducing physical task, subjects performed workload trials on a bicycle ergometer at fixed workloads twice for 2 hours and then rested for 4 hours. During the physical tasks, subjects performed non-workload trials with maximum velocity for 10 s at 30 min (30-min trial) after the start of physical tasks and 30 min before the end of the tasks (210-min trial).

Results:

  • The change in maximum velocity from the 30- to the 210-min trial in the 300-mg Coenzyme Q10-administered group was higher than that in the placebo group.
  • In addition, subjective fatigue sensation measured on a visual analog scale in the 300-mg Coenzyme Q10-administered group after the fatigue-inducing physical task and recovery period was alleviated when compared with that in the placebo group.
  • Conclusion: Oral administration of Coenzyme Q10 improved subjective fatigue sensation and physical performance during fatigue-inducing workload trials and might prevent unfavorable conditions as a result of physical fatigue.
