Anybody take this supplement? Consumer Health recently had an article about headache remedies and CoQ10 seemed like it might work the best, with fewest side effects. (I get headaches pretty much everyday since starting Cimzia.) For those that take CoQ10, what do you think it helps with?

CoQ10 is the latest flavor of the month antioxidant (remember resveratrol? - the antioxidant from red grapes in red wine?)

this is good for heart health and if you take statin meds cos those meds deplete your CoQ10 levels.

antioxidants can help for health, but this one specifically for crohn's, i dont know and there is no studies on it.

ubiquinol is the better version of CoQ10 for adults. the problem with supplements is finding something of quality so you are not wasting your money.
