Vitamin Supplement May Ease Gulf War Illness in Veterans

Results from a new study conducted by the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, show that a vitamin supplement found on the shelves of most drugstores alleviates 19 of the most frequent symptoms of Gulf War illness in veterans.

In the study, roughly 80% of the 46 Gulf War Veterans studied—all of whom suffered from a combination of headaches, fatigue with exertion, irritability, recall problems and muscle pain due to diagnosed Gulf War illness—reported improvement after taking the supplement coenzyme Q10 over a 3.5-month period of time, including better physical function. The test was randomized, double-blind and controlled by placebo.

While this unfortunately isn’t a cure for Gulf War illness, researchers hope that coenzyme Q10 will help veterans find much-needed relief from their symptoms.

In the meantime, the Congress-appointed Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans’ Illnesses continues to search for advancements to better the lives of some 250,000 Gulf War veterans still afflicted today.
