Coenzyme Q10 Helps Veterans Battle Gulf War Illness Symptoms, Reported Recent Clinical Study

Roughly one-third of the 700,000 United States troops who fought in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War have subsequently developed a distinct set of chronic health problems, dubbed Gulf War Illness.

A recent study sheds light on the health problems facing Gulf War Veterans, and how Coenzyme Q10 (Coq10) helps to battle the symptoms more effectively. The study was conducted by the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, and published in the November 1 issue of Neural Computation. The veterans have been plagued by many symptoms; from fatigue, muscle pain and weakness to decreased cognitive function and gastrointestinal and skin problems, and persisting decades after the conflict. One of the major findings of the study was that these Vets show signs of Mitochondrial Damage.

During a recent interview, the principal investigator of the study, Beatrice Golumb, MD, PhD, made these comments: “Evidence links Gulf War Illness to chemical exposures, such as pesticides or pills given to soldiers to protect them from possible nerve agents. These chemicals can damage Mitochondria, which generate the energy our cells need to do their jobs. When these powerhouses of the cells are disrupted, it can produce symptoms compatible with those seen in Gulf War Illness." CoQ10 is a fat-soluble antioxidant made by the body to support basic cell functions, including directly assisting Mitochondrial energy production.

Over a course of three and a half months, the Veterans in the study received a pill form of either CoQ10 or a placebo. Researchers found 80 percent of those who received 100mg of CoQ10 had improvement in physical function. The degree of improvement correlated to the degree in which CoQ10 levels in the blood increased. This is a key point, that the degree of absorbability was key to the CoQ10 being used by the body to its fullest. Keeping in mind that CoQ10 is fat soluble and hard to dissolve in the GI Tract, especially in those people over 30, a super-pure form of CoQ10 called Ubiquinol was developed.

Nutrusta formulated a new Ubiquinol Formula that represents the pinnacle of absorption technology. The 100mg capsules of Ubiquinol Ultra are 6 times more absorbable than regular formulas. A user can take one instead of six to get the same benefits. This innovative formula is 100% Pure and Natural, Made in USA, and GMO Free. Kaneka QH Ubiquinol® is "Body Ready" and derived from Kaneka Q10©, the world's most recognized and researched CoQ10, and is all natural yeast-fermented and bio-identical. Because bio-identical CoQ10 is the same as what the body needs and produces naturally, the body easily absorbs these nutrients for maximum effect.
