CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that is produced naturally by the body and is also available as a supplement. A study published in Fertility and Sterility showed that supplementation of 600 mg of CoQ10 daily by older women improved both egg quality and fertilisation rates.
Current research has strongly suggested that as the mitochondrial spindle and alignment in older oocytes is disrupted, and that the introduction of CoQ10 was able to correct this disturbance and improve performance.
Although there still yet is more work to be made, the research has strongly suggested that the pre-treatment of CoQ10 in patients with poor ovarian reserve and stimulation can improve ovarian response.
If you are considering CoQ10 supplementation for improving egg quality or addressing fertility concerns, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional, such as a fertility specialist or reproductive endocrinologist. A fertility clinic can evaluate your specific situation, provide personalised advice, and guide you on the appropriate dosage and duration of supplementation.
