Abstract

AIMS:

This meta-analysis study was carried out to assess the effects of coenzyme Q10 supplementation on body weight and body mass index of patients in randomized controlled clinical trial studies.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

A comprehensive systematic search of literature was performed through ISI web of sciences, PubMed, Scopus and Cochrane library databases up to February 2018 which was supplemented by manual search of the references list of included studies. From a total of 1579 identified articles, only 17 trials with 14 and 14 effect-sizes were included for pooling the effects of co-enzyme Q10 supplementation on body weight and body mass index, respectively.

RESULTS:

Results of random-effect size meta-analysis showed that supplementation with coenzyme Q10 had no significant decreasing effects on body weight (WMD: 0.28 kg; 95% CI = -0.91, 1.47; P = 0.64) and BMI (WMD: -0.03; 95% CI = -0.4, 0.34; P = 0.86) of study participants. Subgroup analysis revealed that dosage of Q10 and trial duration could not differ the results of Q10 supplementation.

CONCLUSION:

Results of this meta-analysis study failed to show any beneficial effect of coenzyme Q10 supplementation on body weight and BMI of patients in clinical trial studies.
