Co-Q10 Supplementation, Sore Muscles, and Physical Performance

If your workouts leave you feeling sore, boosting your body’s natural antioxidant production might provide the extra boost you need. A recent study found that co-enzyme Q10 (Co-Q10) could help you recover quicker from intense workouts by significantly improving three biomarkers of muscle damage. Co-Q10, a molecule found in mitochondria, helps provide cellular energy and may fuel antioxidant production, reducing muscle damage and inflammation. While supplements don’t replace proper recovery through nutrition, hydration, movement, and sleep, participants saw benefits from taking 100-300 mg of Co-Q10 daily for up to 12 weeks. Focus on the recovery fundamentals first, then consider supplementation for an additional boost.
