Coenzyme Q10 helps the “tired heart”

Heart failure sufferers benefit from dietary supplements that contain it.

This is revealed by an important American research: those suffering from heart failure benefit from food supplements that contain this molecule.

Coenzyme Q10, also called ubiquinone, improves cardiac efficiency in those suffering from decompensation. To say it is a team of researchers from Tulane University in New Orleans, whose study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The survey shows that those who, suffering from heart failure, take through food supplements a daily dosage between 60mg and 300mg of coenzyme Q10 obtain an average increase of 3.67% of the ejection fraction, ie the portion of blood that at each beat the heart expels from the left ventricle.

The ejection fraction is a measure of cardiac efficiency which, in case of heart failure, is reduced leading to a series of symptoms and even serious disorders.

“It has long been known that to improve the efficiency of the heart in those suffering from this disease,” said Dominica Fotino, coordinator of the study, “we need both pharmacological therapies and a diet that provides essential nutrients for the proper functioning of the heart, such as coenzyme Q10, magnesium and vitamin B1 (thiamine)”.
