The purpose

The dietary supplements selenium and Q10 has been evaluated in a double blind placebo-controlled study in an elderly Swedish population. The hypothesis is that as a majority of Northern Europeans suffers insufficient levels of selenium that is used by the cell in the building of at least 25 different enzyme systems in the body, and that the cell need presence of Q10 in order to produce the selenium containing enzymes, we wanted to evaluate the effect of a combined intervention of the two supplements in an elderly population in Sweden. All participants were controlled every 6 months, and the intervention was 48 months in each participant. Besides blood samples, echocardiography and cardiac natriuretic peptides were analyzed at start, every 6 months and at end of the study.
