Selenium and CoQ10 may increase longevity

This report is a follow-up two years after the end of a 10-year study published earlier.

The initial trial followed 443 Swedish men and women, aged 78 to 85 at the start, who took 200 mg of CoQ10 plus 200 mcg of selenium per day for the first four years. Doctors also followed a similar group of 222 individuals who did not take supplements.

After 12 years, chances of having died from a heart or circulatory event were 41 percent lower for the CoQ10-selenium group compared to the non-supplement group.

Discussing the findings, doctors said the results at 12 years validate the findings at 10 years; that even eight years after stopping supplementing, people who had taken CoQ10 and selenium were much less likely to have died from heart and circulatory factors.
