Gulf War syndrome (GWS), also known as Gulf War illness (GWI), is a chronic multi-symptom disorder affecting one-quarter to one-third of 1990-1 Gulf War veterans.   A wide range of acute and chronic symptoms have been linked to it, including fatigue, muscle pain, cognitive problems, rashes and diarrhea.

This newly published study on Gulf War veterans shows that Co-Q 10 supplementation significantly improved many symptoms of Gulf War Illness, including word recall, fatigue, and irritability.

We sought to assess whether coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) benefits the chronic multisymptom problems that affect one-quarter to one-third of 1990-1 Gulf War veterans, using a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study.

Participants were 46 veterans meeting Kansas and Centers for Disease Control criteria for Gulf War illness.
