Help For Chronic Fatigue
Doctors believe chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also called myalgic encephalomyelitis, emerges after a viral infection and causes severe fatigue and cloudy thinking. In this study, 207 people with CFS took a placebo or 200 mg of CoQ10 plus 20 mg of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-hydrogen (NADH) per day. After 12 weeks, while the placebo group did not improve, those taking CoQ10 and NADH reported less cognitive and overall fatigue, better sleep quality, and health-related quality of life.
Doctors chose CoQ10 and NADH because they boost mitochondrial function—the energy generators in each cell—and are powerful free-radical scavengers that reduce damage to DNA caused by oxidative stress.
