CoQ10 for blood pressure ???

Has anyone taken CoQ10 to lower blood pressure? I'm interested in your experience with it and your results?

After a certain age the bodies ability to produce COQ10 decreases so supplementation is definitely helpful for optimal health. To lower B/P try the amino acids L'Arginine and L'Lysine.

Re: CoQ10 for blood pressure ???

Thanks I just started to CoQ10 2 weeks ago and yesterday I started on L-Arginine.

I would sure LOVE to hear from someone who has had "actual" experience with these supplements as to whether they helped or not. Thx

My B/P stays in the 110 to 130 range with these supplements.

Re: CoQ10 for blood pressure ???

How much of each supplement do you take?

My current supplements are:

L-lysine 620 mg (500 mg also fine)
L-Arginine 500 mg

COQ10 30 to 200 mg a day depending on your age. The older we get the more that is needed. You might do your own research on this. I recommend one with kaneka.

That is about the same as my top number on these supplements. What range is you bottom number usually in? Also, am curious how long you've been taking the CoQ10 & the L supplements? Thx

You mean the diastolic number? Usually around 60 but it can go as high as 80.

I've been taking the COQ10 for 2 or 3 years, the amino acids about a year or so.

Re: CoQ10 for blood pressure ???

Just want to add that anyone on statins should be taking Co Q10 as statins deplete levels in the body

One of the side effects of statins is muscle aches, and muscles need CoQ10

Re: CoQ10 for blood pressure ???

Barbara Ann,

Thought I should mention that I also take Flush Niacin for genetically high cholesterol. Flush Niacin also lowers B/P. I've been taking it for about 10 years as it keeps my lipid panel in the low risk category.

Hey Tess;

I just started the Niacin time released. Will or does it have the same effect on b/p and if so, how long does it take to bring it to a lower level? BTW, what about cinnamon? Have you ever used that to lower or regulate b/p? Thx

Re: CoQ10 for blood pressure ???

It is my understanding that time-released Niacin is not as effective as straight Flush Niacin. You can do your own research but I think it tends to be harder on the liver. Also, it is the flush effective that you want so if the time released is eliminating that I question whether it would be beneficial. When starting Flush Niacin you just want to be sure you start low, like at 100mg., and ramp up slowly when the fiush effect starts to diminish. In this way you are getting some flush but not an intolerabe amount. I always used Twin Lab. You can get it in various strengths. Eventually, maybe months down the road, you want to be taking 1000 to 1500 mg. a day, which can be done in two divided doses.

I tried cinnamon years ago but didn't notice any difference. You may have a different experience with it.

Tess
