Co Enzyme Q-10; starting it today.
I haven't read any postings about this yet but will do so over the next few days.
I saw my Neurologist yesterday. He was quite enthusiastic when I brought it up. I had previously read on Mayo Clinic's site they were having some success with this in regards to PSP but wasn't specific at all.
I had already purchased a bottle of it to make sure I had the right thing. There were 2 dosages; 100 or 200, so I grabbed the 100 since I'm smaller. Not sure about other countries, but in the US, you can buy it over-the-counter at a drug store.
I asked him to explain specifically how this helps with PSP since the packaging also refers to it promoting heart health. He said with PSP "a whole bunch of brain cells randomly get together and die, like committing suicide, and don't regenerate.". Those are his words, not mine.
What the Q-10 does is interrupt that signal and stops it from happening, or slows it way down, or only allows fewer cells to get away with it.
In terms of heart health, he said it operates close to the same; helps prevent the cells from dying.
He said there is much research going on with the Q-10 they are excited about and that it is absolutely not harmful and could prove very helpful, especially in the long term.
