Partial and complete regression of breast cancer in patients in relation to dosage of coenzyme Q10-Lockwood K, Moesgaard S, Folkers K. Pharma Nord, Vejle, Denmark.
CoQ10 is one of the most overlooked nutrients!
There isn’t a government recommended daily intake for Coenzyme Q10.
It’s the fuel your cells use to make energy.
It’s the primary source of energy for the immune cells that get suppressed by cancer.
CoQ10 restores cells ability to fight back and attack cancer cells.
Like vitamin C, it’s also a powerful antioxidant that blocks free radicals from damaging your DNA.
Besides helping to prevent cancer, there are many clinical trials in which CoQ10 helps heal people who already have cancer.
In one, researchers in Denmark studied a group of breast cancer patients. They gave them CoQ10, plus a combination of other antioxidants and essential fatty acids.
The entire group had a partial remission of the cancer. Two of the patients received larger doses of CoQ10 (390 mg) and their tumors disappeared.1.
A good way to get CoQ10 is by eating red meat from grass-fed animals.
Grain-fed meat is not a good source of CoQ10. Repeat….Grain fed equals NOT GOOD!
If you want to supplement, please use the best form.
Many suggest 50 mg of the ubiquinone form, which is 8 times stronger and is better absorbed than the old form.

Partial and complete regression of breast cancer in patients in relation to dosage of coenzyme Q10.- Lockwood K, Moesgaard S, Folkers K. Pharma Nord, Vejle, Denmark.
Relationships of nutrition and vitamins to the genesis and prevention of cancer are increasingly evident. In a clinical protocol, 32 patients having -“high-risk”- breast cancer were treated with antioxidants, fatty acids, and 90 mg. of CoQ10. Six of the 32 patients showed partial tumor regression. In one of these 6 cases, the dosage of CoQ10 was increased to 390 mg. In one month, the tumor was no longer palpable and in another month, mammography confirmed the absence of tumor. Encouraged, another case having a verified breast tumor, after non-radical surgery and with verified residual tumor in the tumor bed was then treated with 300 mg. CoQ10. After 3 months, the patient was in excellent clinical condition and there was no residual tumor tissue. The bioenergetic activity of CoQ10, expressed as hematological or immunological activity, may be the dominant but not the sole molecular mechanism causing the regression of breast cancer.
