CoQ10 Supplements and Mental Acuity

The finding on CoQ10 protecting the brain in the rat model is consistent with our own son’s undergraduate research project on CoQ10. Drew confirmed earlier research which found that mice taking CoQ10 supplements are more energetic, daring and exploratory. Now energy may be a random trait to tie to intelligence, but daring and exploration take some degree of mental acuity, right? 

So impressed were researchers with this unexpected finding that Drew and Dr. Sinatra published their conclusions in the Journal of Biofactors back in 2003. And, as a proud wife and mother, I’d like to boast that the Sinatra father-and-son team were the first to report this in the animal model!

CoQ10 Supplement Recommendations

So while we await research exploring CoQ10 supplement effects on human mental acuity, at least we have reason to suggest that folks like you—and ourselves—who are looking to be as proactive as possible with their own health and future have a resource.

So, you may be taking your ounce of prevention each and every time you take a CoQ10 supplement, and this finding is something you can offer to anyone you know looking to prevent or slow down Alzheimer’s disease

To ensure this protection, Dr. Sinatra recommends 100 mg twice a day of a high-quality CoQ10 supplement.
