Mito Cocktail - CoQ10 (Ubiquinone)

America's Pharmacy sent us this wonderful information sheet on all the components of the Mito Cocktail with our boys prescription. They were helpful and worked to get our insurance to cover the Mito Cocktail, too!

"CoQ10  also known as ubiquinone, is a natural antioxidant that is involved in producing a molecule that serves as the primary energy source for all cells. Dietary sources of CoQ10 include fish, meats, eggs, spinach, and peanuts. CoQ10 has been used in studies to prevent cancer and heart disease, increase energy levels, lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, enhance immune system function, and for the treatment of mitochondrial disease. The UMDF recommends taking 5-15mg per kilogram of ubiquinone daily. In general, CoQ10 is well tolerated, but some side effects include nausea, stomach upset, headache, loss of appetite, and dizziness."
