Yes: Some studies have shown CoQ10 enzyme to be of benefit in heart failure and reducing cholesterol but not enough evidence to support use in the treatment. There have been no studies linking it to Crohn's disease and no harmful events as a result from CoQ10 have been found in any studies. It will change the efficacy of other medicine you are taking so please notify you doctor if you take it.
