Coenzyme Q10 Supplement Touted as a Way to Increase Fertility
A study presented earlier this year by Canadian researchers has created a bit of a buzz in the fertility world when the reported that a supplement found in most health food stores — Coenzyme Q10 — might have the power to slow the aging of eggs in mice. Now, another preliminary fertility study by Dr. Robert Casper and colleagues at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute and Mount Sinai Hospital has shown good results in reducing the aging of eggs in mice. They found that when CoQ 10 was given to 52-week-old mice — about mid-age for a mouse — their eggs appeared to rejuvenate.
