Idebenone is a smart drug that is structurally related to the smart nutrient coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). CoQ10 plays a vital role in the creation of ATP, the primary energy molecule in the body. It has been used in Japan as a treatment for various types of cardiovascular diseases and has been used successfully in the United States as a treatment for gingivitis (inflammatory gum disease).Several studies have shown that CoQ10 can be metabolized in the body in such a way as to create damaging compounds with free radical-like activity, although if the body is supplied with sufficient antioxidant smart nutrients, such as vitamin C, ascorbyl palmitate (fat-soluble vitamin C), beta-carotene, and vitamin E, CoQ10 should be able to exert its beneficial effects without causing free-radical damage. Idebenone does not seem to share this problem.Studies have found that idebenone is relatively nontoxic. No biochemical abnormalities have been noted in people taking idebenone, and no studies I have found report suspicious clinical laboratory values that could be directly related to the use of idebenone.Dosage commonly used: 100 mg per day.*55\244\2*
