Vitamin Q (Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10)

CoQ10 has been around for 40 years. In 1961 it was discovered that blood levels of CoQ10 directly correlate with cancer and the various stages of cancer. For example, breast cancer is associated with a decrease in blood levels of CoQ10. In fact, doctors can fairly reliably determine if you will survive breast cancer by the CoQ10 levels in your body. The higher your blood levels, the better your chance of survival.

Coenzyme Q10 is found in all cells. It can not be manufactured in the body without the presence of three other vitamins: niacin (B3), folic acid, and pyridoxine (B6). Dr. Karl Folkers, of the University of Texas, Austin, reported on six breast cancer cases that had remarkable results: "The overt survival for the 5-15 years of six cancer patients, without evidence of cancer, and the complete regression of cancer in five cases, and now a regression of metastases in the liver, are extraordinary..."

Usually when cancer metastases in the liver it is a death sentence. But in the three cases that follow, after suffering the side effects and misery of the ethical treatments of mastectomy, X-ray, and anti-cancer drugs, high doses of CoQ10 had no side effects. According to Dr. Knud Lockwood, these ethical therapies "rarely, if ever, caused highly significant regressions of the primary tumor and metastases in the liver... Therefore, our recording of the disappearance of liver metastases in even one patient having breast cancer is extraordinarily salient..."

The following three case histories are clinical cases reported by qualified doctors in hospitals in this country. Using large doses of CoQ10, they had miraculous results in reversing cases of terminal cancer.

1. A 44 year old woman had both breasts removed for cancer in September 1992.

She then had 10 treatments with three different cancer drugs. She had an echogram of the liver in April 1994, which revealed metastases to the liver.  Tamoxifen was then added to her treatment. She was given CoQ10 in a dose of 390 mg daily. In March 1995, an echogram revealed that the metastases had disappeared. A month later, a thorough examination revealed the patient to be in excellent health, with no signs of cancer.


2. A 49 year old had her right breast removed in May 1990. A year later she developed a reoccurrence on the chest wall. She was given X-ray treatment since surgery was impossible. Seven months later, she had fluid in the right lung which contained breast tumor cells -- an obviously hopeless case. She started on 90 mgs of CoQ10 daily, which was later increased to 390 mgs daily.  Six months later, her chest X-ray was normal and she felt well. Three years

later, she was still free of any sign of cancer.


3. A 75 year old woman was found to have a carcinoma in situ of the right breast.  A lumpectomy was performed but microscopic examination of the tissue revealed that cancer tissue had been cut through. Because of the inadequate surgery and fear of spread of the disease, a mastectomy was performed. She had started CoQ10 (90 mgs a day) two months before the mastectomy and, a year later, her dosage was increased to 390 mgs per day. When she was examined three years later and found to be in excellent health with no sign of cancer.

So why aren't all cancer patients taking CoQ10?

1) Most doctors aren't aware of it.

2) No one can patent a vitamin. There is no money to be made here.

So it is up to the consumer to be aware of such things and to seek out knowledgeable practitioners in the pursuit of good health. It makes perfect sense that a good cancer therapy should work with the immune system, not against it as the so called ethical treatments do. Although these cases were about breast cancer, there is no reason to believe that CoQ10 won't work in other cancers.

You won't get enough CoQ10 from a multivitamin. Since it is fat soluble, it should be taken in softgel form for proper absorption. CoQsol by Softgel Technologies is an excellent source. The dry form of a nutrient can only be absorbed by water-soluble cells. Because CoQsol is suspended in an oil, it can be absorbed by both water and fat soluble cells. CoQsol can be gotten from Optio Health Products (800) 678-4692 or Mountain Home Nutritionals (800) 888-1415. If you take it in dry form other than a wafer (which has oil added), take it with a tablespoon of olive, flax, or cod liver oil or perhaps an oil capsule.

The manufacturer of the product that was used in all past and present research on CoQ10 worldwide is Vitaline Corporation (800) 648-4755, International (541) 482-9231. It is available to doctors and is extremely well absorbed. CoQ10 made with the Vitaline product can be obtained by calling Second Opinion (800) 728-2288.
