Increasing Fertility: CoQ10 and Female Egg Quality
An interesting study into how Coenzyme Q10 helps with fertility
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and its role on female infertility and egg quality is discussed by Dr. Vitaly A. Kushnir, physician and associate scientist from the Center for Human Reproduction. Published on 23 May 2013
The study shows how antioxidants such as CoQ10 appear to protect eggs from oxidative stress. CoQ10’s beneficial effects appear to derive from the protection it provides to mitochondria, the energy factory within each egg. CoQ10 has been used successfully for male infertility, but its use for female infertility is only in its infancy.
