Current studies are underway using coenzyme Q10 as a treatment for AIDS. In addition, this substance has been shown to enhance weight loss, heal periodontal disease, relive angina and inhibit the aging process on a cellular level. It has also demonstrated its ability to reduce the mortality rate of laboratory animals suffering from leukemia and tumors.
Applications:Cardiovascular disease, cancer, high blood pressure, respiratory disease, asthma, mental illness, Alzheimer's disease, candida, obesity, multiple sclerosis, periodontal disease, gastric ulcers, weakened immune systems and AIDS.
