What is the theory behind the claim that CoQ10 is useful in treating cancer? thx
CoQ10 may be useful in treating cancer because it boosts the immune system. Also, studies suggest that CoQ10 analogs (drugs that are similar to CoQ10) may prevent the growth of cancer cells directly. As an antioxidant, CoQ10 may help prevent cancer from developing.
Refer to the PDQ health professional summary on Coenzyme Q10 for more information on the theory behind the study of CoQ10 in the treatment of cancer.
