Effect of Dietary Coenzyme Q10 Plus NADH Supplementation on Fatigue Perception and Health-Related Quality of Life in Individuals with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: A Prospective, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial
TLDR
Overall, the findings support the use of CoQ10 plus NADH supplementation as a potentially safe therapeutic option for reducing perceived cognitive fatigue and improving the health-related quality of life in ME/CFS patients.
Evaluating the Effects of Dietary Interventions on Disease Progression and Symptoms of Adults with Multiple Sclerosis: An Umbrella Review.
TLDR
Vitamin D supplementation had no significant effect on relapses, MRI, or disability progression; however, an inverse association was found between vitamin D status and disability scores through observational studies.
Effect of coenzyme Q10 supplementation on work-related fatigue in nurses: a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled study
TLDR
Given this practical limitation, CoQ10 supplementation was effective in improving fatigue in nurses and maybe a safe approach, ideally in conjunction with other work condition changes.
Food Implications in Central Sensitization Syndromes
TLDR
Personalized treatment, taking into consideration the severity of the disease symptoms, quality of life, coexistence with other diseases, pharmacological treatment, changing clinical characteristics, nutritional status, energy requirements and food tolerances, among others, are suggested as the best ways to tailor specific dietary interventions.
Effects of coenzyme Q10 on health-related quality of life, clinical disease activity and blood pressure in patients with mild to moderate ulcerative colitis: a randomized clinical trial
TLDR
Findings suggest that CoQ10 can be used as a potential intervention for diminishing the disease severity and blood pressure and may improve QoL and UC patients.
Coenzyme Q10: Clinical Applications beyond Cardiovascular Diseases
TLDR
Interestingly, beyond cardiovascular diseases, CoQ10 is involved also in neuronal and muscular degenerative diseases, in migraine and in cancer; therefore, the supplementation with CoQ 10 could represent a viable option to prevent these and in some cases might be used as an adjuvant to conventional treatments.
Atherosclerosis and Coenzyme Q10
TLDR
It is reasonable to believe that coenzyme Q10 supplementation could be beneficial for both Atherosclerosis and aging, as atherosclerosis phenotype is closely related to aging.
Pathogenesis and management of fatigue in primary biliary cholangitis
TLDR
An updated summary of pathogenesis and emerging treatments for fatigued PBC patients is provided and it is suggested that specific medical treatment options for relieving fatigue symptoms emerge, including anti-inflammatory treatments.
Lyme Disease: A Role for Coenzyme Q10 Supplementation?
TLDR
The potential role of supplementary coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in mediating the pathogenic mechanism underlying Lyme disease is reviewed on the basis of its role in mitochondrial function, as well as its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant actions.

TLDR
A role for mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress in the headache symptoms associated with FM is suggested and CoQ10 supplementation should be examined in a larger placebo controlled trial as a possible treatment in FM.
