Coenzyme Q10: a therapy for hypertension and statin-induced myalgia?
Cleve Clin J Med. 2010 Jul; 77(7):435-42.CC

Abstract

Some small clinical trials seem to show that coenzyme Q10 supplements can be used to lower blood pressure and to treat or prevent myalgia caused by hydroxymethylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitors (statins). However, larger trials are needed to determine if they are truly effective for these purposes. The authors examine the evidence and also discuss issues such as bioavailability, elimination, safety, and cost.
