Gulf War illness symptoms reduced by CoQ10

Tuesday, November 11, 2014. The November 1, 2014 issue of the journal Neural Computation published the results of a double-blinded trial which uncovered a benefit for supplementation with coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) in relieving symptoms experienced by veterans of the 1990-1991 Gulf War.

"Gulf War illness is not the same as post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury, signature illnesses of later deployments, which are caused by psychological and mechanical injury, respectively," stated lead researcher Beatrice Golomb, MD, PhD, who is a professor of medicine at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine. "Evidence instead links Gulf War illness to chemical exposures, such as pesticides or pills given to soldiers to protect them from possible nerve agents. These chemicals can damage mitochondria, which generate the energy our cells need to do their jobs. When these powerhouses of the cells are disrupted, it can produce symptoms compatible with those seen in Gulf War illness."
