CoQ10 May Improve Facial Wrinkles

wrinklesA new study has found that a high dose Co Enzyme Q 10 supplement taken daily may improve wrinkles around the eyes and other parts of the face.

32 healthy individuals who averaged 53 years of age participated in this placebo-controlled randomized intervention study.  Participants were randomly broken down into 3 groups: low dose CoQ10 (50 mg), high dose CoQ10 (150 mg) or a placebo.  The study lasted 12 weeks.  CoQ10’s anti wrinkle benefits were seen with both groups supplementing with the CoQ10.  The high dose group saw even more improvement in reductions in wrinkles around the lips, nose and mouth than the lose dose group.

CoQ10 is found in all cells in our bodies.  It is an essential part of the cellular energy cycle.  It has been demonstrated that CoQ10 levels decrease with age and are diminished with the use of certain medications like statin drugs.  CoQ10 also acts like an antioxidant protecting the cells from free radical damage.

Further studies are planned.
