The form I'm taking according to the label is ubidecaronone coenzyeme Q10. The raw form (or fully oxidised) for want of a better description. The ubiquinol is a reduced form. I really don't know if its better or not.
It is thought that coenzyme Q10 reduces aldosterone secretions
and compromises the effect of angiotensin in sodium retention (Louis
et al., 1965). There are several reports concerning the effect of CoQ10
on blood pressure in human studies. In an open-label study, doses of
CoQ10 to maintain a serum level N2.0 μg/mL were added to standard
antihypertensive drug therapy in 109 symptomatic patients with
essential hypertension. The average daily dose of CoQ10 was 225 mg.
Gradual improvements in functional and clinical status were observed
within the ﬁrst 6 months necessitating a decrease in antihypertensive
drug therapy. Fifty-one percent of the patients were able to use 1–3
lesser antihypertensive drugs at an average of 4.4 months after
starting CoQ10 treatment (Langsjoen et al., 1994a,b).

PointsNorth wrote:@moose. I slept most of the day because of increased dizziness, fatigue with NO decrease in spasticity - same as with baclofen. I will try one more day and then on to Zanaflex. No worries . . I just gotta try. Technically I've been SPMS since 2010 but I've been in freefall since early 2012.
@Jimmy as soon as I get some energy I will post results of my Organic Acids Test. - Don't reckon I'm low on Mg as I take 6-8 caps a day for spasticity. My OAT said my vit D was low altho I've been taking 6000 iu/ day for last 1.5 years! I've increased to 10,000 iu now. I'm very happy that I now have a younger, smart naturopath.
