Nutritional programming of coenzyme Q: potential for prevention and intervention?
Bottom Line: Postweaning dietary supplementation with CoQ prevented these detrimental programming effects.Recuperated WBCs also had reduced CoQ (74±5.8%; P<0.05).We conclude that early intervention with CoQ in at-risk individuals may be a cost-effective and safe way of reducing the global burden of CVDs.

Mentions: At postnatal d 3 and 7, recuperated pups were significantly (P<0.001) lighter compared with control offspring. However, by postnatal d 21, this group had undergone accelerated postnatal growth; therefore, the body weights were similar between groups (Fig. 1). At 12 mo of age, body weight remained similar between groups (Table 1).
