Coenzyme q10 (coq10) deficiency

“Treatment of periodontitis with CoEnyme Q10 [was so ‘extraordinarily effective’ that it] should be considered as adjunctive treatment with current dental practice.”35
“…topical application of CoQ10 improves adult periodontitis not only as a sole treatment but also in combination with traditional nonsurgical periodontal therapy.”36

Periodontal Disease:
Insulin resistance, which is often associated with: Nutrient deficient diet (B2, B3, B5, B6, folic acid, • Gingivitis: Bleeding gums, gums that bleed with adult-onset diabetes/elevated fasting blood sugar light brushing or probing, swollen gums, reddened Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance
• Periodontitis: Bleeding and pus with probing at the Use of anti-hypertensive medications (see list below) • elevated serum cholesterol and triglycerides gum-tooth margins, chronic inflammation of gums, infection, often with abscess formation, premature Prescription Medications That May Increase • sleep apnea

Diets That Increase Risk of CoQ10 Deficiency Major Tranquilizers:
Diets high in animal protein, low in vegetables Tricyclic Antidepressants:
Diets deficient in riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (B3), Asendin, Elavil, Etrafon, Norpramin, Pamelor, pantothenic acid (B5) pyridoxine (B6), folic acid, B12, vitamin C &/or trace minerals such as selenium. For more information on CoQ10, go to
