Researchers at the prestigious Cochrane Reviews analyzed data from several "gold standard" placebo-controlled double-blind studies on coenzyme Q10 for Parkinson's Disease, involving 452 patients. They found that taking 1,200 mg a day of coenzyme Q10 for six months is very effective in easing Parkinson's.
The Parkinson's patients had improvements in their "activities of daily living." They also had improved scores in two standard tests used to evaluate features of Parkinson's, such as the ability to maintain a normal posture or walk normally.
