I’m a heart patient. Long story, but a virus attacked my heart and I went into heart failure and stayed there for about 4 years. I was given about a chance in three that I would die right then, and the same odds for dying within a few years, or surviving longer and gaining an increase in my health. Early on, I sought out a support group on-line for folks in my situation. Within that group, many people thought that Coenzyme Q-10 could possibly help repair heart tissue. At the time, it was believed that heart tissue once damaged, cannot repair itself.
There weren’t many studies on CoQ-10 when I first got sick five years ago, but of the few there were, most of the indications were inconclusive. My heart doctors said they couldn’t recommend it, but it wouldn’t harm me to take it. I take 150 mgs. per day. I don’t know if it is responsible in any way for my improved heart function, but I’m not stopping it to find out. Big drawback if you choose to take it–it’s pricey. Wal-Mart has the best prices around.
