Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) levels are depleted by cholesterol-lowering medications

  • Use of certain cholesterol-lowering medication is increasing over time1
  • Nine out of 10 adults using a cholesterol-lowering medication take a statin1

Cholesterol-lowering statins can significantly lower the amount of CoQ10 (ubiquinone) in the blood3-6

  • Statins can lower the amount of CoQ10 in the body, even when a patient has taken a standard dose for as few as 3 months3 

side effect of statin administration is depletion of CoQ10, which can lead to muscle-related adverse reactions7 

  • Daily Ubiquinol supplementation effectively restores CoQ10 levels which can help support muscle health during statin use.7,8

In patients with chronic heart failure, adding Ubiquinol to statin therapy can elevate reduced CoQ10 levels, which can support skeletal and cardiac muscle health9

“…there is a strong case for considering co-administration of ubiquinol with statin therapy in patients with depressed or borderline myocardial function.”

“…we believe that the co-administration of 300 mg ubiquinol with the combination ezetimibe/statin should be the preferred initial therapeutic option for LDL-lowering in patients with heart failure and hypercholesterolaemia, especially in those with high oxidative stress and coronary artery disease.”
