Many physicians recommend a high dose of idebenone for their patients. Kirkman offers hypoallergenic idebenone 150 mg capsules. This formulation was designed for individuals with special requirements and sensitivities.
Idebenone is an analog (variation) of Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), a necessary component of the energy producing process of every cell. No other substance can be substituted for it, and without it there literally is no life. In order for the body to produce an immune response, a constant supply of energy is required, and to produce this energy, a continuous and adequate amount of CoQ10 must be present. CoQ10 also has very strong antioxidant power. Antioxidants protect against free radical damage. Simply defined, a free radical is a highly reactive molecule that can bind and damage (or destroy) body cells. Oxidative free radical damage is what makes us age. Antioxidants can help neutralize free radicals. Antioxidants seem to work best in combination, and CoQ10 works synergistically with other antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene.
Some doctors recommend idebenone because:
- Studies show that idebenone supports cell energy.
- Idebenone may offer protection against excitatory amino acid neurotoxicity from ingestion of certain ingredients through the diet, such as MSG, artificial sweeteners, canned soups and meats and spices.
- Idebenone supports mitochondrial function.

Idebenone is a synthetic form of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Thus, it has the multiple benefits of CoQ10 (for the heart, the blood pressure etc) and also it is a memory booster. It helps on memory and may prevent Alzheimer's disease. There are many studies about its beneficial role on memory and generaly on cognitive function. It is very safe.

Idebenone helps my EYES by removing EYESTRAIN. I am a software developer working on the computer all day, and eyestrain is a big problem for me.
