Coenzyme Q10

Hello,

What are your thoughts on Coenzyme Q10?

From what I've read I would like to take about 200 - 400mg for it's neuroprotective effects however I'm concerned about it stimulating the immune system?

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks

There's been recent mention in another thread of the Nancy Davis Center Without Walls. I've read her book, Lean on Me, and she thinks CoQ10 has been very helpful in her case.

You might also want to read this abstract. The entire article is freely available and there's a segment on CoQ10 and MS.

I have taken 400+ a day, but I now take it as Lipitor(ie Statins) are known to reduce it. I can not personally say I have noticed any difference

Thanks Sharon and CoB,

I've just done a search on pub med - Q10 immune -

And it does seem to stimulate the immune system in addition to all of it's positive effects for MS.

I guess moderation might be the key.

It all depends on which "camp" you pitch your tent. If LDN works the way they believe it to work, then it too stimulates the immune system.
