I take CoQ10 in hopes of supporting my dysfunctional immune system. I can't say whether it would benefit others or not, but my symptoms are holding (at least not progressing), so I have no intention of stopping it now.
Some additional info (and I won't quibble about the sources... it's just info I've happened across):www.lef.org/magazine/mag2006/feb2006_cover
"In addition to its direct scavenging of free radicals, CoQ10 also helps regenerate vitamin E, another important antioxidant. Vitamin E provides antioxidant protection in fat-soluble environments such as cell membranes. When Coenzyme Q10 levels in cell membranes are diminished, regeneration of vitamin E is slowed as well." lpi.oregonstate.edu/f-w02/coenzymeq10.html
"Should" you take it? Only you and your healthcare team can answer that question. Antioxidants are a popular topic these days, and I think reducing free radicals in my particular case is probably advantageous. As for others, I neither recommend nor dissuade from their use(s).

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
