CoQ10 May Benefit People in Intensive Care Units

When a person experiences trauma, their body has a metabolic response that includes inflammation, oxidative stress, and increased metabolism. A recent study suggests that CoQ10 may help reduce oxidative stress and time spent on a ventilator for people in ICU due to trauma.

Forty adults who were in ICU due to traumatic injury participated in the study. They were given 400 mg of CoQ10 or a placebo daily for at least 7 days. The researchers measured levels of blood markers of oxidative stress, length of time on a ventilator, and length of hospital stay.

Participants in the CoQ10 saw a considerable reduction in two markers of oxidative stress, malondialdehyde and interleukin 6. They also spent less time on a ventilator and less time in the hospital compared to the placebo group. In addition, they experienced a lesser degree of body wasting compared to the placebo group.

The study was conducted by researchers from Urmia University of Medical Sciences and Zanjan University of Medical Sciences. It was published online ahead of print on July 12, 2021, in the Journal of Nutritional Science.
